What is the ground like?
The stadium is modern having been completely re-built over the last five years, matching Fleetwood’s rise up the leagues with five promotions in seven seasons. The latest addition to the ground is the very impressive looking Parkside Stand which was first opened to spectators in March 2011 with a capacity of 2,000 all seated.
Opposite is the Highbury Stand, which is a small all-seated covered stand, which was opened in 2008. It is only six rows high and has a capacity of 550.
Both ends are covered terraces, which are similar in size in terms of height. The Percy Ronson Terrace, which is given to away supporters, runs for around 2/3rds of the width of the pitch whilst the home end, the Memorial Stand, is larger extending the full width of the pitch.

Where to park?
There is no parking for away supporters at the stadium itself but there is plenty of street parking available in the area.
There is no railway station in Fleetwood itself. The closest is at Poulton-le-Fylde, which is just over five miles away. However it is more likely that fans will head to Blackpool North station which is around seven miles away. A taxi from the station to Fleetwood will cost you the best part of £20, which may okay if there is a group of you. For smaller groups it may be better to catch a bus to Fleetwood, Service numbers 1 and 14, run from Blackpool.
Pubs for away fans
There is Jim's Sports Bar at the ground, which normally admits away fans. The facilities in this bar are excellent, but get there early as it is bound to be very popular on matchdays.
Otherwise, the Queens Hotel, on Poulton Road is about a 15 minute walk away. Go up Highbury Avenue then left at the St Nicholas church into Poulton Road. The Queens is about 300 yards along this road on the left.'
