Rochdale - Spotland

Ground Name: Spotland
Capacity: 10,249
Address: Sandy Lane, Rochdale, OL11 5DR
Tel Number: 08448261907
Nickname: The Dale
Home Kit Colour: Blue


Away supporters are housed on one side of the Willbutts Lane Stand, where around 1,500 fans can be housed. If demand requires it, then the whole of this stand can be given to visiting fans increasing the allocation to 3,650. The stand is normally shared with home supporters with away fans being seated towards the Sandy Lane End.


By car: Exit the M62 at Junction 20 and take the A627(M) towards Rochdale. At the end of the A627(M) you should be in the left hand lane to turn left at the traffic lights. Now follow the road and with Tesco on your left, go straight through the next set of lights (approach in the middle lane) into Roch Valley Way. At the next crossroads (where the Cemetery pub is on the corner) go straight onto Sandy Lane, where the ground can be found on the right after approx 3/4 mile.

By train: Rochdale Railway Station is located just under two miles away from the ground, which is served by direct trains from Manchester Victoria, Halifax, Bradford Interchange and Leeds. Alternatively you can get a Metrolink service to Rochdale station from either Manchester Piccadilly or Victoria. Rochdale station is around a 35-40 minute walk from Spotland, so best jump in a taxi, rather than walking.


Car Parking at the ground is now for permit holders only, so it is a case of finding some street parking. However this may be a bit of a distance from the ground as there is a "residents only" parking scheme in operation in streets around Spotland.
