Edgeley Park is an all-seater stadium, with a capacity of 10,650. It is the home stadium of Stockport County FC.
One end is dominated by the Cheadle End Stand, a two-tiered, covered stand opened for the 1995-96 season. Behind the other goal is the Railway End, a former open terrace, which had seating installed in 2001.
The sides of the ground are occupied by the old Main Stand which dates from the 1930s, and the Popular Side Stand, another former terrace which is now all-seater.

What have other Away Fans said about their trip?
Away fans report that Stockport appear to have become a little more tolerant towards away supporters in recent years. Seating in the Railway End has been a constant source of complaint, with little legroom and open to the elements. This is partially offset by the limited availability of covered seats in the Popular Side, though supporting pillars impede the view of play from this area. The facilities within the ground are pretty good, with modern toilets, whilst the refreshment kiosk, staffed by friendly faces, offers a good range of pies etc. Stewards reportedly enforce a “no standing” rule rigorously in both areas.
