Exeter City travel to Stevange on Saturday for their penultimate game of the League Two season. The Grecian will be looking for three points in their bid to secure a top-three finish and promotion to League One.
Here is all you need to know about visiting the Lamex Stadium on Saturday.
THE LAMEX STADIUM (SG2 8RH)
Broadhall Way, now known as The Lamex for sponsorship purposes, has been the home of Stevenage since the early 1960s. It has a capacity of 6,722 including 3,142 seats. The away fans will be located at one end of the ground in the South Stand, where up to 1,350 supporters can be housed.
As of Monday, City had already sold 730 of their 1,300allocation, therefore we are advising that fans purchase their tickets as soon as possible as there is the possibility we could sell out our away allocation for the game. Stewards will ask City fans to sit in the designated seats. Hopefully, our own fans will be respectful to their fellow Grecians. There is also a £3 increase on matchday on the following prices so, again, supporters should by in advance where possible to save money.
Ticket prices are as follows:
Adult (22-59): £21
Tickets can be purchased from the club up until Friday afternoon. To buy tickets online please click here. You can also call the club during the normal office hours on 01392 411243 or visit the club shop & reception in person between 9am and 4pm Monday to Friday.

Grecian travel will depart from Unit 1 nightclub at 8am on Saturday morning and the cost is £30 per fare.
Pick-up points include: Unit 1 Nightclub (Summerland Street), Honiton Road Park & Ride (By Miller and Carter Steakhouse), Cullompton Services (Junction 28), Tiverton (Junction 27), Taunton (Junction 25), any other pick-ups en-route by prior arrangement.
Use the M5, M4 and M25 before merging onto the A1 (M). At junction seven, take the A602 exit to Stevenage. Continue on that road and you will pass The Lamex before finding a roundabout and taking the third exit, leading you directly to the ground which will be on your left. There is clear signposting from the A1 (M).
To travel to Stevenage railway station from Exeter St David’s, the journey requires two changes, at London Paddington and Kings Cross, and would take approximately four hours. The 8.52am train from Exeter St David’s on Saturday, would get you into Stevenage at 12.28pm, while the 9.54am train would get you into Stevanage at 1.47pm. Once you arrive at Stevenage railway station, follow the road right and then take a left onto Six Hills Way. Then, take the next right onto Monkswood Way, which leads you to The Lamex. It is a straightforward journey but is a 1.3-mile walk. There is also a shuttle bus service operated by Arriva buses on match days that runs on a loop covering Stevenage bus station, railway station (Stop N) and the Lamex Stadium. It costs £1 return. The first shuttle bus starts two hours before kick-off and the last one returning after the game is at 6.30pm on Saturdays. The bus stop for the ground is on Broadhall Way opposite the entrance for the North Stand.
There is a large (1,500+ capacity) free car park adjacent to the ground.
There is a large clubhouse bar at the ground located behind the south stand which is open to both home and away fans at most games. If you’d prefer to visit a pub, The Roebuck Inn is located on London Road, a 10-minute walk from the away end. With your back to the away end you will see a wooded path, follow this down the side of London Road and it will lead you to a roundabout, with the pub located on the opposite side. If you take the 15 to 20-minute walk into the town centre there are plenty of pubs to be found, including a Wetherspoon’s. Across the roundabout from the ground there is a retail park which contains various eating outlets such as Pizza Hut, Burger King and a Harvester restaurant and bar.
The total distance between St James Park and The Lamex is 216 miles, taking around three and a half hour to drive.
