Newport County FC - Rodney Parade
Newport only moved into Rodney Parade at the beginning of the 2012/13 season and the ground is a much smarter one than the old Newport Stadium the club moved out of. Rodney Parade has a capacity of just over 5,500 for football matches. The main stand and Bisley stands are all seated whilst there is a terrace behind the town end goal. The opposite end is a rather unusual affair with a three tiered executive unit and another unit that houses the dressing rooms Despite the South end it's a nice relatively smart stadium and is a traditional lower league English football ground with many quirks. The capacity is more double the amount allowed in for football matches which is a shame and seems like a waste.
Around 600 away fans can be accommodated in the Bisley Stand toward the South End of the stadium. Being a new stadium, the views and facilities in this area are fantastic. The stand is shared with home fans separated by segregation netting and there's generally a nice atmosphere created.

Where To Drink
Rodney Parade has its own clubhouse which welcomes in visiting supporters and does a selection of hot and cold drinks and a small range of food. If you're after something more substantial, there is a Wetherspoons situated along Chepstow Road. Alternatively, the town centre is less that 15 minutes away and you'll find the usual fare of McDonalds, Burger King, KFC etc.
Be aware that the surrounding area is mainly residents only parking and so you'll need to allow some time to find a space. There a plenty of car parks in the town centre.
