All you need to know if you're joining us at the Riverside...
We'd like to remind fans who are concerned about congestion and queues in the concourse areas to please arrive earlier to take your seat. Fans can also remain in their seats after the final whistle to allow the congestion to ease on exiting the stadium.

Based in the FanZone our Supporter Services Activity Team are on hand to assist or answer any questions/queries our supporters may have.
Important Traffic / Pedestrian Advice
The Whitehouse railway crossing adjacent to the Navigation pub is now open again for both pedestrians and vehicles. However, following consultation with the Safety Advisory Group and Cleveland Police the westbound section of Dockside Road (ie the railway track side of the road) will continue to be subject to a no parking restriction. The reduction of vehicles on the railway side of Dockside Road has led to a significant improvement in pedestrian safety at the end of recent home games.
Middlesbrough Council parking enforcement officers will again be working on Saturday and drivers are advised park responsibly.
Tickets are still available for the game.
Prices start from £27 for adults, £18 for Over-65s and £13 for Under-18s.
