- Temporary signs will be in place to direct traffic for the match.
- Yeovil Town FC has arranged additional supporter parking.
- Temporary measures will be in place to enable match traffic to leave the event as quickly as possible.
- The council will also be working to ensure that inconsiderate parking in the surrounding residential areas is kept to a minimum.

“We will also be providing live traffic updates via the Travel Somerset website, and social media channels, alongside BBC Somerset.”
