Luton Town FC - Kenilworth Road
With a capacity of just over 10,000, Kenilworth Road is suitable for any club at this level of the English game. However, the ground has been in need of major redevelopment for many years now. Lack of funding and talk of a new stadium have put paid to that unfortunately.
The Oak Road End behind one of the goals is very small and has pillars running across the front of the stand. Opposite is the Kenilworth Road End which used to be a terrace but has had seating installed over top. The view from this stand is very good. The Main Stand runs along side the pitch and is a two tiered affair. A camera gantry ladder and supporting pole run directly down the front middle of the stand with a couple of large supporting beams to either end. Opposite this is the Executive Stand. A long row of executive boxes run end to end with a small seating section in front of each.
Up to 1,500 visiting supporters can be accommodated here and they are situated in the Oak Road Stand behind one of the goals. As mentioned above, the view of the playing surface is restricted from most seats due to the pillars running across the front of the stand and alos the low gradient, whilst the leg room and facilities available inside are also strained. The refreshments bar is ok however.

Where To Drink
There are a number of pubs in the local vicinity but if you arrive early enough, a visit to the club bar at the ground (The Bobbers Club) is well worth it. It's situated right by the Oak Road turnstiles and allows a small amount of away fans in. A selection of hot and cold drinks and a small range of food is available.
Parking is limited in nearby roads do to a permit parking only scheme so you're advised to either park a little further afield. If you want to get away quickly after the game then you'll need to arrive early to find a space nearby.
