Away accommodation

When segregation is in place away fans are allocated the A13 Steel Stand (below - shown before it was renamed) at the West end of the ground. This has a capacity of around 1,240 and is all seated. The South end of this stand is allocated to home fans when smaller away followings (less than 600) are anticipated.

For National League matches a section of the North Stand Terrace is offered to away fans, which holds a maximum of 200.

Visitors have disabled accommodation on both flanks of the A13 Steel Stand. Both disabled fans and carers are charged entry to the ground as recommended by the National Association of Disabled Supporters.

Access to the stand is via gates at the far end of the ground from the entrance via Victoria Road. Walk around the clubhouse and the gates are on the right hand side. Use gates 9,10 and 11.

For Vanarama National League games this season, away seated accommodation is offered in the the A13 Steel Stand only unless notified. For clubs with small away followings the Daggers may offer the Family Stand (208 seats).

From 2018/19 the Daggers are also allocating some terracing (maximum of 200) to visiting clubs. to clubs with large away followings.

Seats are priced at 21 for adults, 15 for concessions, 12 for children 16 and under, and 2 to children under 10 (provided the child is accomapnied by an adult).

Terrace prices are 15 adults, 10 for concessions, 8 for children 16 and under, and free to children under 10 (provided the child is accompanied by an adult).

Please note only cash is accepted at the turnstiles on match days.

The match day programme, The Dagger, is 3.

Driving directions

From the North: Approach via the M25. From the M25 exit at junction 27 and head south on the M11. At the end of the M11 join the A406 North Circular Road and head south towards Barking. At the junction with the A13 exit the A406 and take the A13 East towards Tilbury, Dagenham and the Dartford Tunnel. Exit the A13 at the signs for Dagenham/Dagenham East and the A1306 with the Vue cinema on your left. At the second set of lights on the A1306 take the B178 (Ballards Road), turning left at traffic lights with the Ford Plant main gates on your right and a McDonalds immediately in from of you. There is a fairly small signpost for Dagenham & Redbridge FC on this junction which is easy to miss. Now see "Nearly there" below.

From the South: Take the M25 and cross the river at the Dartford Tunnel. Shortly after exiting the tunnel take the exit onto the A13 at junction 31 of the M25. Follow the A13 to the Dagenham/Dagenham East exit. At the double roundabout under the main A13 turn right and pass back under the A13, then go straight on up over the bridge to the traffic lights and turn left onto the A1306. At the second set of lights turn right into the B178 (Ballards Road), with the Ford Plant main gates on your left and a McDonalds on your right. Now see "Nearly there" below.

Nearly there: At the north end of the B178 (Ballards Road) turn left at the roundabout onto Rainham Road South (the Bull pub is on your left here). Careful approaching this roundabout as it is a 30mph speed limit and there is a camera. If you are in need of cash there is a free cash machine in the garage opposite the Bull off the roundabout. After passing Dagenham East London Underground Station which will be on your left, Victoria Road is 400 yards further down on the left.

The ground is about 100 yards down Victoria Road.

Parking
There is very limited parking at the ground available by prior arrangement only.

Other parking is available in the side roads near the ground and fills up fairly quickly before a major game. You ought to find something, but the later you arrive, the further you walk. It is possible to park in Pondfield Road behind the club and walk across Pondfield Park to the back entrance into the ground.

Note that parking on the pavement in Bury Road is not allowed and the Council will be giving parking tickets and potentially also clamping cars that are found here on match days.

Public Transport

Use the London Underground, District Line to Dagenham East (not Dagenham Heathway). Come out of the station and turn left, Victoria Road is about 400 yards and on your left, the ground is a further 100 yards down Victoria Road. Dagenham East is around 40 minutes from central London on the District line.

It is possible to get a C2C train from London Fenchurch Street to Barking and then transfer to the District Line for the last 4 stops to Dagenham East which will save a little time provided the train timings are right, but this is probably not going to make much difference overall, especially at weekends.

Alternatively, it is possible to get a Great Eastern train to Romford and than take the number 103 bus to Dagenham which stops close to the end of Victoria Road. Great Eastern trains run out of London Liverpool Street station. The other end of the 103 route is Rainham Station on the C2C line which may be an alternate route to consider if trains are problematic.

Getting a beer

In order of preference, DiggerDagger recommends the following establishments near the ground:

Dagenham & Redbridge FC clubhouse: The clubhouse behind the main stand is open to away fans on most match days for a day membership of 50p. Prices in the clubhouse are worth the 50p membership if you are going to stay for more than one and Sky Sports etc. is always on. The clubhouse had a major makeover in the close season 2017 and the selection and quality of beer has also been improved.

There is now also a bar under the A13 Steel Stand open on match days for away fans.

Just up from the station, on the opposite side of the road where May & Bakers entrance was for 100 years, is a brand new (opened 2015) pub/carvery, The Pipe Major, which is a Marstons pub. This now appears to be the preferred gathering place for fans prior to games at Victoria Road.

The Eastbrook is just past the ground on the right if walking up Rainham Road from the station.

Food

Food, tea, coffee and soft drinks are available from the tea bars in the ground. Beer is now for sale within the ground to away fans only, in a bar below the Traditional Builders Stand.

Outside the ground there are various fast food outlets adotted around the area including a couple of fish and chip shops in the area opposite Dagenham East Station and on Rainham Road between the Station and Victoria Road. A McDonalds is on the A1306 at the junction with Ballards Road. There is a Pie and Mash establishment just beyond the Eastbrook pub in Dagenham Road.
