First Time Visitor's Guide to Inver Park

Welcome to Inver Park 12 Jul, 2016

Are you planning your first visit to Inver Park? Let us give you a quick guide to Inver Park so you can get the most from your visit. We love to see new supporters come to cheer on the Inver Reds. We can't guarantee a Larne win, but we can guarantee a warm welcome to our club and a great day out watching football.

 

One of the best things about coming to watch Larne at Inver Park is that, as a supporter, you can feel part of the action. You can actively encourage the players. Indeed, the players are very accessible after games and you can even chat with them and get to know them. The bond between the players and supporters is one of the best things about local football.

 

What is Inver Park?

Inver Park is the home of Larne Football Club. Located, on the Inver Road, the club has played at Inver Park for almost 100 years, and the land was gifted to the people of Larne for sporting purposes by the Royal British Legion shortly after the First World War. It is a historic venue, which has evolved over the course of the last 100 years.

 

How to find Inver Park?

By Road

Finding Inver Park is very easy indeed. If you coming towards the town from the A8 Dual Carriageway, get into the town centre bound left hand lane.

 

Follow the road along Pound Street. Get into the right hand lane ahead of the traffic lights at Larne Library.

 

Turn right down High Street and follow the road under the flyover. Take the first right after the flyover onto the Inver Road.

 

The Inver Road bends left, and then right. The entrance to Inver Park is on the right, about 100 yards further up the road. Follow the laneway to the main gates of Inver Park.

 

If you would prefer to use Sat Nav to find Inver Park, our postcode is BT40 3BW.

 

By Train and by Bus

Larne is accessible by train via the Larne Line service. For buses, take either the 256 express or the 156 and remain on the bus until it reaches Larne Bus Station.

 

For train services, alight at Larne Town Station. Inver Park is less than a mile away and should take around 15 minutes to travel on foot. Follow signs for Larne Bus Station, which should take you across the roundabout and under the fly over, past Home Bargains and the Bus Station on your left.

 

Once you reach the Bus Station, head right, towards Station Road. The bus station is around half a mile from Inver Park and should be a 10 minute walk from Inver Park.

 

Walk along Station Road where you will reach the crossroad between Station Road, Glynn Road and Inver Road. Head straight through the crossroads up the Inver Road.

 

The Inver Road bends left, and then right. The entrance to Inver Park is on the right, about 100 yards further up the road. Follow the laneway to the main gates of Inver Park.

 

Numbers of local taxi firms will be available in the train and bus stations.

 

Please see www.translink.co.uk for full information on timetables and fares, bearing in mind Saturday services are often cheaper but less regular.

 

Where to go when you get to Inver Park?

There is plenty of free and convenient car parking space at Inver Park. Parking is located around the Social Club. If demand for parking is high, please see the club website and social media for advice and information.

 

Once you are parked, hot food is available from our resident chip van. We also have a Social Club which serves a selection of alcoholic, soft drinks and snacks. There is ample seating in the club with several televisions showing the day's sport, and the lunchtime English Premier League match so why not come along early, watch the televised football and then cheer on the Inver Reds.

 

The Match

There is no need to purchase tickets in advance. You can pay at the gate on matchday. Admission to Inver Park is £7 for adults and £5 for under 16s and OAPs. The ground is accessed by the turnstile near the entrance to the Social Club.

 

Once you go through the turnstile, the entrance to the Main Stand is on the left, and the terracing is accessed on the right.

 

Terracing is accessible on all four sides of the ground, however only the terracing on the Main Stand side is sheltered, and the majority of supporters watch the match from this side of the ground. Home supporters will generally move along this side of the ground depending on which end Larne are attacking.

 

The Bleach Green End is on the left hand side as you look from the Main Stand, and the Church End is to the right, where the neighbouring St Cedma's Church is clearly visible.

 

Occasionally, away supporters will be segregated. However, any special arrangements for individual matches will be displayed on the club's website and social media.

 

There is no need to leave Inver Park before the end of the game to beat the traffic, as traffic flow out of the ground is usually excellent even for high demand matches.

 

Matchday Information

For selected matches, our official matchday programme Inverview is produced and on sale inside the turnstiles priced at £2. We will announce on our social media when a programme will be produced.

 

Otherwise, a matchday Inverview News Letter will be produced. This will contain a summary of the main headlines from Inver Park. On the reverse of the Inverview News Letter, there will be a team sheet for the match. This is free of charge but donations towards printing costs are welcome.

 

Toilets

Toilet facilities are located in the Social Club. Once you enter the main door, the toilets are located on the left hand side, either side of the noticeboard.

 

Accessible Area and Special Requirements

Inver Park now has a dedicated area for wheelchair access. The Accessible Area is accessed from an accessible entrance at the rear of the Main Stand, which leads to the dedicated area beside the press box. There is seating provided for personal assistants. The Accessible Area offers an excellent view of the pitch.

 

We would encourage any supporters with disabilities to contact the club in advance to allow us to make any reasonable adjustments to allow you to get the most out of your visit to Inver Park. Larne Football Club will endeavour to be sensitive and accommodating to the needs of any supporter.

 

Supporters Club

Larne Football Club benefits from the support of the Inver Red and Whites Supporters Club. They run transport to away matches and fundraise for the club throughout the season.

 

Joining the Inver Red and Whites is a great way to get involved with the club and to get to know other Larne supporters.

Ordinary Junior Membership costs £10, or for just £20 you can become a Junior Travel member and your travel to every away game is included in your membership fee.
