It's Solihull On Tuesday For MFL Cup Final


Next Tuesday Hereford FC travel to Solihull's Automated Technology Group Stadium for the Midland Football League Cup Final against Walsall Wood.

It's pay on the night, no advance tickets. Please note the kick-off is at 7.30pm.

Adults £5, Concessions £3

The capacity of the ground is reported to be 3,050 with 280 seats.

What's it like for visiting fans (taken from the Football Ground Guide)

The Damson Lane ground is sandwiched in-between Birmingham Airport on one side and the Jaguar Land Rover plant on the other. Consequently there is not much around in the local area, so once at the Damson Lane Ground, you tend to be a bit marooned. Still if you get to the ground reasonably early then you will find that free parking is available and the Clubhouse Bar sizeable and friendly. However if you arrive close to kick off time and there is a healthy support in attendance, then don't be surprised to find the car park full (and you then having to try and find some street parking) and the scrum four deep at the bar. For most matches segregation is not in force, but if it is put in place then away fans are one side of the Damson Lane End (towards the east side), which has a mixture of covered seating and terrace. For these segregated games with both sets of fans using the same end and under cover then this can make for a lively atmosphere. If demand requires it then part of the open East side of the ground can also be given to away fans. Refreshments are chiefly provided by the obligatory burger van, although there is a small tea hut at the back of the Damson Lane End, but this only offers hot and cold drinks, plus confectionery. If fans are segregated then this means that away supporters can't access the Clubhouse Bar at half time.
