An accreditation area, coach park, and parking spaces for Blue Badge holders will be temporarily located on East Marsh during the Games. To accommodate these facilities, 11 football pitches will be temporarily relocated to South Marsh. The football pitches will be fully reinstated after the Games with improved drainage facilities.
