Apparently the decision was made by the manager of the site.
How dairy.

In a shock announcement the dairy remains open on match days to fans of Wolverhampton Wanderers. Mullers are big fans of their gold tops.

It may pay Stags to do what some other clubs do, that is to provide a park and ride system to bring the fans in. Free to passengers that have a match ticket and maybe a small charge to others that don't.

The parking will be worse if or when the hotel opens. The building will take up many spaces vehind QLE meaning the players and directors must park somewhere else which in turn will meean less spaces for match day parking. Non-match attending guests of the hotel would also want to park outside and what about checking out when there are hundreds of cars and pedestrians making their way to the match?

I think if you decided to check out of a Hotel attached to a football ground on a Saturday at 4.45pm on a match day then you're lacking a few screws.

Park where and ride? It’s usually used for stadiums out in the sticks, Field Mill isn’t.

Loads of street parking around Field Mill.

Pizza Hut/Pure Gym
Along past Halfords/Topps Tiles
Stella Street and streets off it
Pay & Display car parks.

There must be 2000+ car parking spaces available in something called 'the town centre' which is adjacent to Field Mill Stadium. It's been there a while.

I think the car park on Nottm Rd (old Speeds showroom) is £2 all day.

Park and Zip-wire

Plenty of parking at the old colliery site at Clipstone, then a rapid zip-wire to the ground from the tallest headstocks in the country.

Bit of a bugger getting back though.
