Bet UK’s Hull City Away Day Guide
Hull City are one of the more familiar teams in the Championship for Swansea City, having played the Tigers 11 times in the last 10 years. The Swans recent record isn’t very promising however, having lost their last 4 meetings. The last time the 2 met was in March 2017, with Oumar Niasse grabbing 2 goals for Hull before a late Alfie Mawson consolation.
This season, Hull look to be in serious trouble. The ex Premier League side are bottom of the table at the time of writing and look to be heading back to the 3rd tier for the first time since 2005. Manager Nigel Adkins was brought in midway through last season to help rectify the club’s poor start to the season, but only won once in his opening 10 games. Form hasn’t improved this season and Hull look like serious contenders for the drop. For the latest odds for this weekend's matches, head over to Bet UK's online betting markets.
When is Hull City v Swansea City
Hull City v Swansea City kicks off at 3:00pm on Saturday 22nd December.
How to get to the KCOM Stadium?
Driving to the KCOM Stadium from Swansea
Hull City is one of the longest trips of the season for the Jack Army, taking just under 5 hours to drive there. When leaving Swansea head on the M4, before leaving at exit 24. Follow the A449, A40 and M50, before joining the M5 at the Strensham Interchange. Follow the M5 until just passed Bromsgrove, before keeping left and joining onto the M42. Keep driving on the M42 and A42 before eventually merging onto the M1, following signs for Nottingham. On the M1, take junction 32 onto the M18. The M62 will merge into the A63, which will then take you directly to Hull.
Car parking is fairly straightforward at Hull, with a huge car park provided at the ground for both home and away fans. If you plan on parking there, it will be worth getting there in plenty time however as the car park fills up quickly. Alternatively, you can park at the Park and Ride in the centre of Hull, or at Hull Infirmary, with both places welcoming away fans for £5.
Trains from Swansea to the KCOM Stadium
With the journey up to Hull being one of the longest of the season, trains to Hull are pretty scarce. There are only really 3 options leaving Swansea that will get you to Hull in plenty of time, all leaving between 5:59 and 6:59. On the way back, there is only one train that leaves after the match, and also gets you back to Swansea without an overnight stay. That train leaves Hull at 17:27, which is tight, but should still be a viable option.
The train station is around a 20 minute walk from the KCOM Stadium, meaning that the 17:27 train back to Swansea should be enough time to reach the station. To get to the KCOM from the station, head through St Andrew’s shopping centre onto Colonial Street. Head along Londesborough Street past the car park, and you will be able to see the KCOM directly ahead of you.
Hotels near the KCOM Stadium for Swansea City fans
The KCOM Stadium is another ground that’s central location makes looking for hotels simple. The ground is only around a 20 minute walk from the centre of Hull, so any hotel in Hull will be relatively close to the ground. For those hoping to stay as close to the ground as possible, The Vale Apart Hotel, the Albert Hotel and the Earlsmere Guest House all offer rooms at reasonable rates.
Pubs for Swansea Football Fans Near the KCOM Stadium
The KCOM Stadium provides a dedicated pub for away fans at the ground, called the Pitch Side. The Pitch Side isn’t the biggest pub in the area, but shows live sport in the lead up to the game. If the Pitch Side is a bit packed, the nearby Park View Pub also happily accepts away fans.

Swansea face home games against Aston Villa and Wigan Athletic over the Christmas period, before an away game at Reading on New Year’s day.
