Bus

There are numerous bus stops throughout the municipality of Sarpsborg however there isn’t one which directly serves the football ground. The closest is arguably “Grotterød fv. 109” south of the ground on Korsgata which is served by bus numbers 200 (Sarpsborg) and 2371 (Sarpsborg Bus Terminal).

Airports

The closest major airport to Sarpsborg is Moss Airport which is located in Rygge some 30km north-west along the E6 motorway. Fairly close to Norway’s Capital city, Oslo, it is a hub for low cost airlines such as Ryan Air.
