Sixfields Stadium

Sixfields Stadium, currently known as the PTS Academy Stadium for sponsorship reasons, is an all-seater sports stadium in the Sixfields area on the west side of Northampton, England. It has been the home ground of Northampton Town Football Club following their move from the County Ground in October 1994.

It was also rented by Coventry City between July 2013 and August 2014. Aside from being a sports venue, Sixfields also houses conference facilities.

Ground Information

The Dave Bowen Stand is behind one of the goals, while The Alwyn Hargrave Stand is the family section and is named after a local councilor who helped make the stadium a reality. The Moulton College South Stand is where the away fans are housed and The West Stand is the largest section of the stadium and houses the club offices and supporters bar.

Away fans

Visiting supporters sit in the South Stand, which holds just under 1000. All seats offer unobstructed views although if possible, try to avoid the back rows as there's very little leg room for some reason. Fans do have to queue to buy a ticket outside the ground and then queue again at the turnstiles.

Away pubs

There are a few pubs on the way through from the Town Centre and Train Station which is handy. You have The Rover, which is a nice pub situated five minute walk away from Sixfields towards the Northampton Saints rugby ground.

Near the ground, if you want food, you have the obvious places such as McDonalds and Burger King to pick from. There are many restaurants with TGI Fridays, Old Orleans and Bella Italia, or even Frankie and Benny's and Buddies USA.

Car Parks & Public transport

Parking at the stadium is available in a fair-sized car park priced at £3 per vehicle. It's rare that it gets full but still worth arriving early to choose the best spot for a quick and easy escape after the game. Street parking is limited in the immediate vicinity but can be find if needed within 5-10 minutes walk of the stadium.
