Arsenal Women’s – Meadow Park Stadium

Previously known as the Boreham Wood Stadium, the Meadow Parks Stadium was renamed the LV Bet Meadow Park Stadium ever since LV Bet partnered with Boreham Wood FC. It’s a football stadium located in Hempsted, Gloucester.

It was the home of Gloucester City A.F.C. from 1986 to 2007. It was destroyed by floods in 2007 and rebuilt. The first game at the new stadium took place in September 2020 and Gloucester City A.F.C. returned to play his home games at Meadow Park in December 2020.

The Arsenal women’s football semi-finals will be played at this football ground on Sunday, October 31. You can choose a reserved seat in the main grandstand or a non-reserved seat or standing room in the west grandstand, new north bank terrace, or south terrace. The Arsenal ladies Meadow Park game will be against Brighton & Hove Albion.

What Have Other Away Fans Said About Their Trip to Meadow Park Stadium?

Meadow Park Arsenal ladies fans are generally not separated. When segregation is in place, remote fans tend to be housed in South Terrace at one end of the site. This open terrace, which is located in the immediate vicinity of the game, has about eight steps and is divided into two areas behind the goal and can be fully or partially occupied.

In addition, half of the modern western stand, which faces the south terrace, is reserved for visitors and around 600 fans can be accommodated in this area. The relatively new west stand offers a good view of the game, offers enough legroom for most, and the spectator facilities are good too.

What do fans think of meadow park stadium

The area is generally a relaxing and quiet one, however, as the club generally has fewer spectators for this level of football, the atmosphere in the Arsenal ladies stadium can sometimes be louder and more active than residents would like.

Fans and locals alike though enjoy the two sections of the south-facing terrace where hot food and drinks are served by a mobile catering unit called a “lunch box”.

As the Founder of Away Grounds, I love travelling to watch football matches throughout the UK. I play soccer for Leigh Genesis FC and support Man Utd. I set up Away Grounds with the desire to share my passion for football with other like-minded footy fans. When travelling to away fixtures there was not enough information on a football away days guide so we have set up to bridge this gap. I apologise when I use the term "Soccer" but we have some US followers also lol
