Chesterfield FC - Proact Stadium
The Proact Stadium was opened in 2010 and can facilitate up to 10,600 people. The HTM (Main) Stand and Midlands Co-operative Community Stand run along either side of the pitch whilst the Printability and Karen Child Stands are behind the goals. The West Stand includes conference rooms and banqueting rooms, one of which has been named the Legends Lounge. All Stands have an unobstructed all seater view of the playing area and are of similar size.
Away fans are situated in the North stand although additional space is provided in the East stand if there's enough demand. Leg room is very spacious and facilities such as toilets and refreshments have been built to a high standard. The view is unrestricted and the seats aren't wooden (like the old stadium) so comfort is most certainly improved.

Where To Drink
The Rose and Crown is just around the corner from the ground and is open to both home and away fans and has a very good atmosphere before games. A little further afield is the Hare and Hounds Inn situated about 5 minutes walk down Sheffield Road toward the train station next door to a bookies and a chip shop. For those that fancy a bite to eat, there is a KFC on site and next door to the stadium is a Tesco supermarket so you have a few options.
Parking is very limited in the surrounding streets. However, if you arrive early enough it is available. There are also a few car parks in the local vicinity charged at reasonable prices. At the stadium there are a few spaces available but need to be booked in advance.
