Fleetwood Town – Highbury

fleetwood-town-highburyHighbury Stadium has a capacity of 5,000, with seating for 2,500. It has been entirely reconstructed since 2007, to keep pace with the Cod Army’s spectacular achievements, resulting in 5 successful promotion campaigns in 7 seasons. The most recent addition (March 2011) is the attractive Parkside Stand, a single-tiered, all-seater affair, with a capacity of 2,000 and a build cost of some £4 million.

On the opposite side of the pitch, the small Highbury Stand, dating from 2008, offers seating for about 500 fans. At the home end, the Memorial Stand is a covered terrace with a capacity for nearly 1,500 fans. The covered Percy Ronson terrace, at the opposite end of the ground, can house some 800 visiting supporters. As a relatively recent construction (2007) it is devoid of supporting pillars and offers an excellent view of play. Given sufficient demand, 300+ seats in the Parkside Stand may be given over to traveling supporters. The facilities are superior to those of the terrace, with alcoholic drinks available and large-screen TVs showing Sky Sports.
