Your better off parking off site and having a little bit of a walk. Cheaper parking and easier to get out from after the match.
I park at Cov Welsh on burbages lane. Costs £5 instead of £10, only a short 5 min walk. Cheap beer, early match normally on the box.

Plus, parking at the Ricoh you putting money directly into w***s pocket with little if any of it going to CCFC. So fuck parking at the Ricoh, I'm surprised so many people still do. £10 to park is scandalous at any football stadium. Especially when the team your there to support don't benifit from it

I remember getting to Oxford and money in hand and the bloke at the car park looked at me gone out and waved me in!

It's amazing how much we've (the fans) been screwed over since moving to the Ricoh.
Charged £10 to park at the Ricoh by the owners. Then given a 60 mile radius permit zone by the council. If you park anywhere within a CV postcode area on match day without paying, you'll end up with a ticket.
It's not until you drive to places like Port Vale and Chesterfield and the like and your in the street along from the ground and looking everywhere for signs that say "you can't park here on matchdays" only to realise, there aren't any. You can park where you like.

My dad had an op last week and can't walk too far. We normally park at bull and anchor but its too far for him today.

Parking at ground today will be a one off.

And add to that, the grounds situated in a shitty position too. Dreadful transport links to it mean the vast majority have to drive there.
At least at HR most could jump on a bus to town and walk there.

So, anyone?
If you get there early enough, you can also pay on the day to park in Ricoh car park A which is accessed via Judds Lane - go straight on at the first mini roundabout. That car park is by far the closest to the stadium. It's also £10 - I think - but there can be a bit of a wait to get out after the game.

We park in Car Park A now as we can't walk too far (only live in Ash Green and used to be able to walk there and back, but sadly no more) and we find it much the easiest car park for us, and we have few problems getting out. Granted sometimes you have to queue a bit but it doesn't take long.

I believe the car park is managed by APCOA. Last figure I remember was that we got around c£4k pa from parking with the rest to APCOA and Wasps.

Based on £10 a game at capacity that's in the region of £500K a year just for league games.

Even if you assume the car parks are only at about 50% capacity, and its certainly way higher than that, we're getting about 1.5%

So every time you hand over your tenner the club gets about 15p. Hope that all goes to Robins.
