How to get to the Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena…
STOKE CITY will play their first public pre-season game on Saturday when they face MSV Duisburg at the Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena (kick-off 2.30pm local time).
With the help of Duisburg, we’ve put together the following travel pack which will hopefully make getting to the stadium, which is just over three kilometres from the city centre and main railway centre, that little bit easier for Potters fans.
Travelling by road:
The stadium lies just east of the A59 motorway. Take exit 13 Wanheimerort/Wedau, and turn east underneath the railroad tracks following for Sportpark Wedau. You will see stadium parking right in front of you at the end of the Wacholderstraße.
If coming from the A3 (which runs further toward the east), take exit 15 Duisburg-Wedau, and follow the signs for Sportpark.
Travelling by train:
Commuter train (S-Bahn) station DU-Schlenk lies a 10-minute walk away from the stadium. Take S-bahn line 1 from Duisburg’s main rail station (or from other cities in the area such as Dortmund, Bochum, or Dusseldorf). DU-Schlenk is the next station from Duisburg Hbf in the direction of Düsseldorf. Trains run once every half an hour.
Travelling by underground:
You can take the (U-Bahn) U79 from the main railway station or several city centre stops. Get on a train heading in the direction of Düsseldorf, and get off at stop Grünewald, from where it is a 10-minute walk to the stadium.
Travelling by bus:
Bus 923 and 934 stop right in front of the stadium (stop MSV-Arena) and both can be taken from Duisburg’s main railway station.
