Ground Information

The New Lawn is very much built in the traditional English style, with four separate stands on each side of the pitch. The main stand runs along one side of the pitch and is opposite a smaller standing section. There are two small stands behind each of the goals, but most of the sections are standing as there are only 2000 seats in the ground.

At the start of the 2006-07 season the club moved to The New Lawn. The Sustainability in Sport terrace is at the north end of the ground. In 2013 the EESI Stand at the opposite end of the ground was converted from seating to a standing terrace. The East Stand is the largest capacity stand at the ground and is all seated. It contains seven boxes, the 'Green Man' public house, gym, dance studio and conference and leisure facilities. The western side of the ground is an open terrace available to away fans.

Away fans

Up to 1,100 visiting supporters can be accommodated on the terrace on the West side of the stadium. The view from this stand is un restricted although the gradient is relatively shallow. Facilities are very good and there's a wide range of food and drink available at the refreshment outlets.

Away pubs

The Green Man is the clubs own Public House and serves many beverages including real ale. You may have heard about some of the changes recently made at Forest Green Rovers. Red meat is no longer sold at the ground but they've recently improved the quality of all food and drinks available.

Car Parks & Public transport

There is a large parking area at the stadium with 230 spaces. As the stadium has yet to sell out for a game you’ll almost certainly be able to get a space there. Parking is available at the stadium. If you're unfortunate enough to not get a space there is plenty of street parking close by.
