Car parking at the Proact Stadium is by permit only and operation is controlled by a Traffic Management Plan.

For this reason, it has been stipulated that the car park will close half an hour before kick-off and will remain closed 30 minutes after the final whistle.

Please note that cars arriving later than 30 minutes before kick-off, and when pedestrians are evident, may be refused access to the site.

After matches, pedestrians, buses and coaches will be allowed to clear the site before cars may leave.

Public car parking:

During the actual league season if any car parks become available for use on match days by the public in the vicinity of the Proact Stadium these will be fully publicised when they become operational.

Street Parking:

Chesterfield ask that supporters travelling by car do so by parking in appropriate places and be respectful to the needs of the club's neighbours. The following is a list of residential streets the club asks fans to avoid parking on in favour of parking instead on the non-residential streets identified in the downloadable maps here.

Try to avoid parking on Lockford Lane, James Street, Holme Road, William Street, Sanforth Street, Nelson Street, Grove Road, Pottery Lane (residential section), King Street North, Shaw Street, Park Lane, Ormsby Road, Ludham Close and Ludham Gardens, Greenside Avenue, Glenfield Crescent, Thorndene Close.

Disabled Parking:

Disabled supporters can buy car parking bays at the Proact Stadium by phoning during the week before the match. Spaces cost £7 each (subject to availability) and can be reserved by contacting Janice Kew on 01246 269300 extension 4153.


There is a regular train service to Chesterfield and taxis available at the train station. For pedestrians and cyclists from the Railway Station follow the 'Stone gravels Way' footpath and cycle route that leads past the Chesterfield Hotel and up Brewery Street over the dual carriageway. Turn right down the steps and proceed along Infirmary Road past Chesterfield College and straight ahead along Canal Wharf. Where this joins Hazlehurst Lane bear right onto a new footpath which runs alongside the dual carriageway. Proceed until the footpath runs along the boundary of the Casa Hotel to emerge at Lockoford Lane where there will be the first sighting of the Proact Stadium.

Lots of reasons for not driving to Chesterfield, car park can be closed 30 minutes before game and not opened for 30 minute after the game. A good reason to use the supporters coach.

A charge of £7 for a disabled parking space.

It’s a wonder they get any supporters !!!

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
