Car Parking:
The Owlerton (greyhound) stadium has match day parking and there is a selction of School playgrounds and industrial units who charge the usual fees on match days. Other than that it is on street parking, but be warned, car crime can be a problem on match days.

Close to the ground pubs tend to be home fans only. However, try: The Horse and Jockey on Wadsley Lane or The White Horse pub on Halifax Road.

In the ground there is the usual selection of of food and drink. All of it was of reasonable quality. Loads of mobile hotdog and burger stands all around the ground for those that like to gamble with Salmonella and two handy chip shops just outside the ground.
