During the London 2012 Games, the City of Coventry Stadium will play host to 12 Football matches, including the women's bronze medal match.
How will the local area be affected?
- London 2012 is encouraging ticketed spectators to travel to competition venues by public transport, walk or cycle so train and bus services will be busier than usual. A range of spectator transport options will be provided including shuttle buses to and from the city centre and park and walk sites
- The local bus service to Tescos, adjacent to the City of Coventry stadium, will be suspended on Olympic match days
- Spectators are encouraged to arrive at the ground at least 2 hours before the match starts so residents may notice spectators gathering at the venue earlier than at a usual football match at the ground
- The event day parking restrictions in the local area will operate in the same way as on other event days
- The off-site car parking sites will be the same as on other event days
- Football matches and other events at the City of Coventry Stadium usually take place at the weekend, or in the evening. During the Olympic Games, some matches will take place on weekdays and during the daytime

Local travel information
A traffic management and parking plan is required in the area surrounding the City of Coventry Stadium on match days in order to discourage spectators from parking around the venue and to make sure that traffic flows as freely as possible during the Games.
The temporary measures include:
There will be a partial closure of Judds Lane throughout the duration of the Games. Full closures will be in effect along Judds Lane from 30 minutes before the end of a game.
The A444 laybys
The Laybys along the A44 will be closed 4 hours prior to the advertised start time and remain in place for two hours after the finish of the match.
The closure of Wheelwright Lane may be required at the end of matches to enable vehicles to exit the nearby Park and Walk site.
Normal match day parking permits will apply, allowing residents with the appropriate parking permit to park on the roads within the parking protection area during match times.
The access entries of temporarily closed roads will be manned by London 2012 staff to ensure compliance with the scheme.
