Newcomer to Ricoh parking!!

Hi all
Looking for some help!
I made my first visit to the Ricoh for the Leicester match yesterday, and enjoyed it so much i will probably get a season ticket but for one thing - the parking!!
I parked on a side road, Mallory way, near the Leekes store because this road didn't have double yellows so I assumed it was OK. On my return I had a parking ticket and on looking around I realised there was plenty of notice that on event days you couldn't park there.
So my question is: where do I park on match days? I had checked all the official parking and it was sold out. And the nearest "Just Park" spot was 30 minutes walk away.
Any way round this??

Parking is my major bugbear for the Ricoh especially when I have pre paid and still get turned away.

You can prebook Car Parks A/B at the Ricoh via, does sell out fairly quickly. I havent worked out where and how you can pre pay Car Park C.

Other off site car parks can be booked via Prices vary and as we saw yesterday the operator takes the p**s when they double or quadruple the usual prices for a game.

There do appear to be a few cash on the day car parks but you take pot luck. I guess these can be found via google.

Thanks for this info.

My problem is that when I have had season tickets in the past (season ticket holder at Worcester for 15 years up to 2013 - don't laugh!!) I often can't commit to going to the game until a few days beforehand. This was never a problem at Worcester because you could always get somewhere to park in easy walking distance - but it sounds like this will be a major problem at Wasps.

You can buy a season ticket for parking in one of the Ricoh car parks when you buy/renew your entry season ticket. Alternatively the outside car parking outfit I think also do a season ticket at the start of the season.

I forgot this season and they were all sold out when I eventually wanted one. I think they worked out this season at about £120 for car park A/B.

Try parking at Coventry Welsh RFC on Burbages Lane CV6 6AY, £5 per car and only a 10 minute walk to the Ricoh (Pedestrian traffic crossing lights permitting). Alternatively, there is a small car park behind the old Social club building on the A444 roundabout for £10 per car. Both are cheaper than stadium parking and are easier to get away after the game too.
I gave up buying stadium parking after working out they sold more tickets than spaces available.
