What color of kit will the team be wearing?
We will be in black and white stripes for this FA Cup tie.
What is the ticket information?
At the time of writing, pay on the day is not available.

Those who have seats are in the east stand.
Standing ticket holders can be found on the terrace of the South stand.
At what time will the turnstiles open?
The turnstiles will open at 1:30 p.m.
How can I get to the ground?
The postal code is DY10 1NB.
Leave the M5 at junction 3 and take the A456 towards Kidderminster. When you reach Kidderminster, turn left at the traffic lights at the junction with the A449. Turn right at the next set of lights and head downtown, you will pass the Severn Valley Railroad on the left. Turn left on Hoo Road just before the roundabout and the land is on this road on the left.
Where is the best place to park?
Ground parking is extremely limited.
You can park at the Severn Valley Railway (10 mins walk) for £ 4 – there are no scheduled events so parking should be ok for most.
There are also over 220 parking spaces at Kidderminster station for £ 3.
Street parking is limited around the ground – watch out for restrictions.
Which station is closest to the stadium and what is the approximate distance and walking time?
Kidderminster station is just a 10-minute walk from the stadium.
Recommended ads for outdoor fans?
City fans do not have access to the Harriers Arms on the ground.
Kidderminster Harriers has set up a mobile bar outside the south stand car park which will open from 1 p.m.
There is a small social club on Hoo Road which can let in a small number of fans outside, there is a nominal fee to enter for non-members.
The King & Castle is adjacent to Kidderminster station, so about a 10 minute walk from the ground.
Weavers Real Ale House, on Comberton Hill (10 mins walk) is just a small pub and does not serve lager.
Downtown, you have Pennies, which also make food. Downtown is a good 15-20 minute walk and uphill as you head down to the ground.
Is food available in the area?
There isn’t much around the pitch itself. There are a lot of chains and local places in the city center.
Where is the nearest ticket machine to the stadium?
There is an ATM on Hoo Road but it charges withdrawals.
Alternatively, the nearest free supermarket is at Morrisons, a 12-minute walk away or there are plenty in the city center.
What food and drink is available at the stadium?
Dining options are different since our last visit due to a change of suppliers.
The food is now burgers and hot dogs etc, with hot and cold drinks also available.
Those with assigned seats will have access to a bar area – open when the turnstiles do until KO, then at half-time.
Those in the South Tribune will have access to the mobile bar in the car park. This will close at KO and reopen at halftime.
Inside the ground is cash only.
Is a program available?
The programs cost £ 3 and are on sale all over the site.
What is the flag / drum policy?
Flags are allowed – please follow flight attendants’ instructions if necessary.
A drum is also not a problem – again, please work with the flight attendants when you arrive.
