Ground Information

The Main stand running alongside the stadium is a very aesthetically pleasing stand and is all seated. Opposite this stand is the Highbury stand and this stretches just half the length of the pitch. At either end is the Percy Ronson Stand and the Memorial Stand and both are covered terrace affairs. Each stand offers a fantastic view as they should. All stands have been rebuilt since 2006 and following the rise in stature the club has gone through, you can only see more development work taking place.

Highbury has four stands, with three of them being all-seated affairs and one a standing terrace. The Memorial Stand houses the more vocal Fleetwood fans, whilst The Parkside Stand houses the away supporters and also has a row of executive boxes at its rear. Away fans are also welcomed in The Percy Ronson Stand, which is the only area of terracing in the ground. Finally, The Highbury Stand is a mix of temporary seating and club facilities.

Away fans

Away supporters are allocated the Percy Ronson Stand, where up to 800 fans can be accommodated. Views are excellent as the gradient is relatively steep and there are no supporting pillars. A small number of seats are also allocated to the visiting fans in the Parkside stand.

Away pubs

There are very few pubs close to the stadium but a number can be found in the centre of Fleetwood itself which is around a 10-15 minute walk. There's a fish and chip shop opposite the stadium but if you're after anything else you'll also need to take the stroll into town.

Car Parks & Public transport

The stadium is situated in the middle of a residential area and parking isn't usually a problem although you will need to avoid any residential permit parking zones.
