Ground Information

Turf Moor is one of the oldest football grounds still in use in the United Kingdom, behind only Preston North End's ground, Deepdale and Sheffield United's Bramall Lane.

The stadium has a capacity of just over 22,000 but due to the age, the Bob Lord and David Fishwick stands are complete with wooden seats and numerous pillars. The history inside the ground, such as the wooden seats, is quite incredible and it's most definitely a ground worth visiting.

Away fans

Visiting supporters are situated in at one end of the David Fishwick stand. Up to 2,100 away fans can be accommodated for league matches and can be found on the Bob Lord side of the stand. Views are non restricted and facilities are very good.

Away pubs

'The Bridge Bier Huis pub', which is around ten minutes’ walk away from the ground, serves good beer and food . The Queen Victoria Public House is a 10-minute walk to the ground too.

It would be a good idea to avoid any pubs on Yorkshire Street if you're an away fan as they are restricted to home fans only. However, round the back of the away stand there is an away friendly venue in the form of a cricket club where you can get your standard match day pint and pie without any bother.

Car Parks & Public transport

There are plenty of large car parks in the local area including three recommended by the club situated on Brown St, Plumb St and Bancroft Avenue. You can also use the local cricket club although street parking is also available.
