Morecambe FC - Globe Arena
The stadium holds up to 6,476 supporters, with 2,173 seats available in the Main Stand, which runs the length of one side of the pitch. Opposite the Main Stand is an uncovered terrace with a capacity of 606. The idea of building the new stadium like this was to give off a similar feel to the ground as that at Christie Park. At either ends of the pitch are the home and away stands, with the home end holding a maximum of 2,234 supporters.
Visiting supporters are situated on the East Terrace behind one of the goals. Up to 1,389 fans can be accommodated for although you'll want to arrive early enough to get yourself a good position. A further 300 seats can be made available in the Main South Stand. Facilities are everything you'd expect from a new stadium with toilets, refreshments and leg room all meeting expectations and all areas of the stadium have unobstructed views making for a nice friendly visit for all away followings. Staff and stewards are very friendly and ejections are likely to be kept to a very minimal level as was always the case at Christie Park.

Where To Drink
The Regent Leisure Caravan Park is about a five minute walk away from the ground, has a good selection of beer, serves food and has a secure parking area which is £3 all day. On top of that, it's away fan friendly. For those with time on their hands there are plenty of bars to be found along the seafront. The best of these appear to be the King’s head and the Ranch House Pub, while there is a Wetherspoons pub for all those arriving by train.
There is a small car park at the stadium, but there aren't many places available so arrive early if that's your planned parking spot. There is plenty of street parking in the surrounding areas however and you'll be unlucky if you have anymore than a 10 minute walk to the stadium.
