A purpose-built ground that spent three years known as The Causeway Stadium; Adams Park has been the home of Wycombe Wanderers since it opened in 1990. The club had actually wanted to leave their previous stadium, Loakes Park, as early as the 1960s but couldn't for numerous reasons, most of them being financial. They sold the ground to the local health authority in order that Wycombe General Hospital could be expanded, with the funds going towards the construction of Adam Park.
The ground takes its name from the club’s former captain, Frank Adams. Adams had actually purchased the former ground, Loakes Park, for the club and its sale also helped to fund the building of Adams Park. The stadium recorded its highest capacity in July 2005 when Jose Mourinho’s Premier League champions Chelsea turned up for a pre-season friendly.
On one side of the ground is the impressive looking Frank Adams Stand, opened in 1996. This was named in memory of the man who originally donated to the club their previous ground at Loakes Park. It is a large two-tiered stand, complete with a row of executive boxes and it dwarfs the rest of the stadium. The other three stands are smaller affairs but are at least all covered.
Only the Greene King IPA Stand at the home end remains as terracing. Opposite is the Dreams Stand, housing away supporters, a medium sized single tiered stand, with windshields to either side. Along the other side of the ground is the Main Stand. This single tiered stand has a raised seating area, meaning that fans access it by climbing a small set of stairs in front of it. There is a large video screen situated in one corner of the stadium, between the Dreams and Main Stands.
Away fans are located at one end of the ground in the Dreams Stand. Travelling fans to Adams Park watch the game from the Dreams Stand which is capable of accommodating approximately 2,000 supporters. Located towards the east of the ground behind the goal, the all-seating stand sits opposite the home terrace, and is a relatively new construction.
The views from the stand are excellent with no pesky support beams blocking any of the action on the pitch, and the woodland setting offers one of the nicer backdrops to lower league football.
Away fans are welcome to make use of the Printkick Fan Zone, just inside the gate, and close to the entrance to the away stand (Lords Builders Merchants Stand). Here, there's hot food, a bar, music, and often entertainment for all the family from local partners. Generally, when the away support is likely to exceed 1,000 supporters, the Fan Zone is made available exclusively to away fans, but when the figure is lower, it is a mixed area for fans of both clubs to mingle.
Elsewhere, the Caledonian Suite is an indoor lounge though we ask for no away colours to be displayed.
At the stadium itself, there is the Scores Bar and Vere Suite which welcome away fans. There is no entry charge for supporters to enter.
Inside the stadium, each stand is serviced by a kiosk serving hot and cold food and drink, including burgers, hot dogs, pies and chips, plus tea, coffee and fizzy drinks, chocolate and sweets. As the ground is on the edge of an industrial estate, there aren't many other drinking establishments around.
'The nearest pub to Adams Park, is the Hourglass in Sands (about a 15 minute walk, from the end of the road up to the ground). Away fans are normally okay in small groups except for big games or local derbies.
There is a fair-sized car park located at the ground or some of the industrial units provide match day parking.
Wycombe Railway Station is situated around two and half miles away from the stadium. It is served by trains from London Marylebone and Birmingham Moor Street. You can either take a Taxi or get the football special bus that runs from the station to the ground on match days.
