Guide For Away Fans

If you’re planning a trip to The Suit Direct Stadium as an away fan to support your team, then here is some information that may be of use to you.

The Simpson Millar Stand
Away supporters are situated in the Simpson Millar Stand (also known as the Rink End). This is an all-seated stand that has a maximum capacity of 1,035. There is no terraced area available for away supporters. There is space for 14 wheelchair users within the stand.

The stand is located on Clarence Road and the turnstiles are adjacent to the main office building, ticket office and shop.

Tickets purchased in advance are charged at the below prices:

  • Adult                         £20
  • Concessions               £14 (Over 65s, Students, Armed Forces, 18-21s)
  • Under 18                   £10
  • Under 14                   £5          
  • Under 5                     FOC when purchased with a full paying adult


*Ambulant Disabled/Wheelchair tickets are sold at the relevant category as above and a free carer ticket will be issued for those in receipt of Higher Rate Disability Allowance or Enhanced PIP (must be shown).

*Under 14s will not be allowed entry to The Suit Direct Stadium without an adult.

*Adult and Concession prices will increase by £1 on matchdays.

Tickets can be purchased online via Hartlepool United FC ( and will go on sale in advance of the game. For high demand games, tickets may be sent to your Club to sell, and information about this will be released via their own website and social media channels.

The Club Ticket Office is open from 10am to kick-off on a matchday for purchase and collection of tickets.

You will require identification to purchase concession tickets and may be asked to show this at the turnstiles.

You can contact the Ticket Office on 01429 272584 (option 2) or email

Food & Drink
We have a catering outlet inside the away end at The Suit Direct Stadium that serves a selection of hot and cold snacks – including our famous foot-long hotdogs.

We also have a bar facility in the away stand. Please note, this will not be open when the expected away following is less than 150. However, there will then be alcohol on sale from the catering outlet in the away stand.

Away fans are welcome to enjoy a pre-match drink in Club 1908, which is situated on Clarence Road and our Supporters Club, The Corner Flag.

Match Programmes
The Pools Programme is our popular Matchday Programme and it is available for sale on the day of a game priced at £3.

You can get your copy from one of our Programme Sellers who will be situated at the four corners of the ground prior to kick off and then inside of the ground from kick off.

They are also on sale in the Club Ticket Office and Retail Store.

If you don’t pick a copy up on a matchday, we sell back copies in Pools Retail Store (subject to availability).

There is also limited street parking around the ground and pay and display car parks at the transport interchange and Middleton Grange Shopping Centre which are a short walk away. Parking in some town centre car parks is free for the first 3 hours so it’s worth the walk if you are able.
