Wolves are making the short trip across the Black Country and into Birmingham this Wednesday night as they face a West Midlands derby with Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup.
A sold-out allocation of more than 5,300 supporters will travel to the fourth round tie, with Wolves aiming to reach the quarter-finals of the competition for the first time since 1995/96.
Supporters who are attending the 7.45pm kick off on Wednesday 30th October will be located in the North Stand rather than the north east corner of the Doug Ellis Stand – which is stated in the following supporters guide.
On matchdays, a traffic exclusion zone imposed around Villa Park to exclude vehicles on the following roads: Witton Lane from the junction with Aston Hall Road to the traffic island at Witton Road, and Trinity Road between Nelson Road and Witton Lane.
The zone is in operation from 75 minutes prior to kick off to about 30 to 60 minutes after the final whistle. Residents’ parking zones are also in operation on match days, so it’s advised that supporters only use official car parks and avoid parking in residential areas.
Disabled supporters should contact Villa’s Disabled Liaison Officer on 0333 323 1874 for information on disabled parking, which must be booked in advance of the match.
Witton station is the nearest rail station to Villa Park and is also the nearest train station to the visiting supporters seating at Villa Park. As well as regular services from Birmingham New Street, Witton station offers park & ride possibilities north of Villa Park on the Walsall line.
