Fleetwood Town FC - Highbury Stadium

Highbury Stadium Guide

Stadium Info

Highbury stadium has a capacity of 5,094 with just under half seated. The Main stand running alongside the stadium is a very aesthetically pleasing stand and is all seated. Opposite this stand is the Highbury stand and this stretches just half the length of the pitch. At either end is the Percy Ronson Stand and the Memorial Stand and both are covered terrace affairs. Each stand offers a fantastic view as they should. All stands have been rebuilt since 2006 and following the rise in stature the club has gone through, you can only see more development work taking place.

Away Fans

Away supporters are allocated the Percy Ronson Stand, where up to 800 fans can be accommodated. Views are excellent as the gradient is relatively steep and there are no supporting pillars. A small number of seats are also allocated to the visiting fans in the Parkside stand.

Where To Drink

There is a supporters bar located at the stadium which generally does not allow away fans in so arrive early as there are very few pubs close to the stadium but a number can be found in the centre of Fleetwood itself which is around a 10-15 minute walk.

There's a fish and chip shop opposite the stadium but if you're after anything else you'll also need to take the stroll into town.

Parking

The stadium is situated in the middle of a residential area and parking isn't usually a problem although you will need to avoid any residential permit parking zones as you'll end up with a ticket or a clamp. Very few of those around though so you shouldn't struggle for a spot. A good bet is either Gordon Road or Addison Road. Both literally moments away from the stadium.

By Train

Be aware that there is no train station in Fleetwood and therefore the most likely event is that you'll be travelling to Blackpool North. This is around 6-7 miles from the stadium and as such it'll be an expensive cab journey so your best option is to catch a number 1 bus from the station. This will take you into the heart of Fleetwood and within walking distance of the ground.

Fans Reviews

  • Travel: Drove up with a couple of mates. Lucky I had the SatNav, because Id never have found the place. Hidden away with no signposts whatsoever. Parked up behind the turnstiles. Even with a bigger than normal crowd on, we found a space easily. The crowd was even bigger second time, but still wasnt a problem parking up nearby.

    Refreshments: Not much, but the new bar under the Memorial Stand is something else. Puts other clubs at this level and higher to shame.

    Impressions: Has had a lot of work done in recent years, and its worth it. An excellent little ground that is better than some lower league grounds. Two covered terraces behind the goals, the new Highbury Stand which is half seated and half standing, and now the Park Avenue side has been redeveloped, the ground is complete. There was no segregation at the Leiston game, though in the time honoured tradition of switching ends at half time at non league grounds, the Leiston fans mainly gathered behind the goal they attacked in the second half, and the facilities behind both goals were fairly similar. During the Yeovil game, with Fleetwood a Conference club by this stage, segregation was in place, with Yeovil having half terrace, half seating.

    Atmosphere: Both big games for the club, and the atmosphere was excellent. With the ground mostly covered, it was really good too. Both sets of fans really up for it, and made a hell of a noise, second half especially. The new stand has really improved things too.

    Anything Else: Some kids moving from the terrace to the stand thought I was a steward in my yellow jacket, and started coming up with excuses for not paying the 1 to transfer!

    Enjoy: Bloody good little ground for Conference North level, and now Fleetwood are a League side, the ground certainly isnt out of place.
