HOW TO GET THERE:

Bayview Stadium is easily accessible both by car and by public transport. The official address of the ground is: Bayview Stadium, Harbour View, Methil, Leven, Fife KY8 3RW.

BY CAR:

The ground is situated on the sea front. At present you can use the Methil Power Station and it's very visible chimney as a guidance marker, although this may be demolished at some stage in the future.

If heading north or east then follow signs for Kirkcaldy. From Kirkcaldy take the A911 towards Methil and then the A915 towards Leven. Turn right onto the A955 then follow this road through Methil towards Buckhaven. This should take you along the sea front and the stadium should be visible up ahead. Turn left onto South Street (the B932) and then left again onto Harbour View Road. Parking for home fans is straight ahead and parking for visiting supporters will be on your left before you read the stadium itself.

If heading south from Dundee, follow the A92 towards Glenrothes. Once past the Tullis Russell roundabout, take a left onto the A911 towards Leven. At the Durievale Roundabout take the third exit onto the A915 and then follow the directions above.


BY BUS:

Buses from throughout Fife all operate to Leven and a local connecting bus will take you from Leven Bus Station to past the stadium. Buses from Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow also stop at Leven Bus Station.


BY TRAIN:

At present there is no train station in Methil or Leven. The nearest main train stations are at Kirkcaldy and Markinch. Both are around 6-8 miles away and you will need to get a connecting bus to Leven and then follow the directions above.


ADMISSION PRICES:

The admission prices for regular East Fife matches at Bayview Stadium for the 2008/09 season are as follows:

Adult = 13.00

Child = 7.00

OAP = 7.00

Parent & 1 Child = 17.00

Parent & 2 Children = 20.00


FOOD AND DRINK:

Sid's Bar is situated at ground level of Bayview Stadium. To enter go inside main entrance and turn left at reception. The bar is a public house and not a social club and can be frequented by all fans, no matter who you support!

For those wanting a drink away from the Stadium, the East Dock Bar at 242 High Street, Methil is a 10-15 minute walk away. The Bayview Bar on Kirkland Road and the Wellesley Inn on Wellesley Road are also popular choices of watering holes for fans for a pre match drink and bite to eat. The former is around a 20 minute walk from the stadium and the latter would require transport to the stadium upon leaving.

Inside the stadium there are pie stalls situated in both ends.


CLUB SHOP:

The Club Shop can be found in a portacabin outside the main entrance. Don't let the fact that it is a portacabin fool you as they carry a large and varied range of top quality stock. You're bound to find something for all your East Fife needs!


PROGRAMME:

The official matchday programme is currently produced by the East Fife Supporters Trust and is an excellent read. It costs 1.50 and is usually 44 full colour and glossy pages.
