Milton Keynes Dons – Stadium MK

stadium-mk-milton-keynesIn 2007, MK Dons moved to a new, purpose-built, all-seater stadium in the Denbigh district, on the outskirts of Milton Keynes. It was designed by Populous (formerly HOK Sport), the same architects responsible for the Emirates & Wembley stadiums and cost in excess of £50 million to build. The stadium is totally enclosed and has a bowl-like design.

Externally, it is a modern design, with good use of silver-coloured cladding and a large amount of glass. Three sides have a large lower tier with a smaller overhanging upper tier. On the West side the upper tier houses the Directors’ box and corporate hospitality areas. Phase one of the stadium uses only the lower tier, giving a capacity of 22,000.

However, installation of seating in the upper tier will increase the capacity to 32,000. Also planned is an hotel and indoor basketball arena at the South end of the ground.

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
