It is suggested that buses/minibuses drop off their passengers in Terregles St/King Street and thereafter park on College Mains road just off the roundabout with the A76 on the town bypass (adjacent to Curry’s/PC World, as the other side at Aldi is the access road to the ambulance depot and is extremely busy). Pick up should be the same location. Car parking is available in the Arena car park, alternatively there is plenty of other on & off street parking available around the stadium.
Any local roadworks etc. that may cause delays
There are various ongoing roadworks currently around Dumfries that may affect travel times to Palmerston Park. High winds are also forecast that could have an impact on travel times. Fans should check the Traffic Scotland website at http://trafficscotland.org/index.aspx for confirmation and of any delays.
Wheelchair access for away supporters is on the south side of BDS Digital stand. There is a layby on King Street for vehicles to drop their passengers for flat access to the ground. Disabled parking is available on the north side of the BDS Digital Stand or at the Arena car park. The cost of entry of 1 personal assistant is included in the price of the accessible ticket.
Specific advice for away fans in respect of condition of entry e.g. searching policy, unacceptable behaviour?
QOS have adopted a robust and thorough search policy for spectators entering the ground to ensure that ground rules and regulations are strictly adhered to, especially in relation to pyrotechnic devices and controlled containers. All bags will be searched and spectators presenting themselves for entry may also be subject to search. Spectators who refuse to be searched by stewards will be denied entry to the ground.
Palmerston Park is a non-smoking venue, this includes e cigarettes and other such devices. Stewards are empowered to eject spectators who disobey these rules. No persons will be admitted to the ground who are deemed to be under the influence of alcohol.
All spectators are required to abide by our acceptable behavior policy. Queen of the South FC look forward to hosting you at Palmerston and wish you a safe and enjoyable journey to and from our stadium. Further information can be accessed via our website www.qosfc.com and social media
