Wycombe Wanderers – Causeway Stadium (Adams Park)

Adams Park, home of Wycombe Wanderers FC, and with a capacity of 10,000 is dominated by the impressive Frank Adams Stand. It was renamed as the Causeway Stadium, but most fans still call it Adams Park.

This large, two-tiered stand was opened in 1996 and is named after the man who donated Wycombe’s former ground at Loakes Park. The other three stands are smaller, but are all covered. Along the other side of the ground is the Seymour Taylor Main Stand, a single tiered stand with a raised seating area.

The home end, the Valley Stand, is the only remaining terraced area. Opposite is the Dreams Stand, a single- tier stand, with windshields to either side, which houses the visiting supporters. A local council stipulation that the ground’s capacity cannot rise above its current 10,000 means that areas such as the terraced paddock of the Seymour Taylor Stand cannot be used for spectators. Wycombe explored the possibility of moving to a new stadium, at the current Sports Centre site, near junction 4 of the M40. The 15,000 capacity stadium would have retained a terraced area. Plans were turned down by the council however, and the club have put their plans on hold for the time being.

Causeway Stadium History

Spring Meadow was Wycombe Wanderers’ first home, but it was sold out from under them. That occurred eight years after the club’s inception.

It caused a commotion as Wycombe attempted to locate a new home before getting a gift from former player Frank Adams, who owned Loakes Park, which was near to the local hospital building. It would be the home of Wycombe Wanderers for the next 95 years.

Despite just leaving Loakes Park in 1990, the team had been planning a move for decades; the venue wasn’t suited for the burgeoning sport of football, and plans for hospital expansion added to the pressure.

This eventually transpired as the first game at Adams Park, which was named after the guy who had given them Loakes Park.

On the first day, the stadium’s capacity was 6,000, but due to continued work to strengthen safety measures, they were eventually able to raise attendance. Since 1990, a number of projects have been completed, with the years 1993 and 1996 being pivotal.

The first had a capacity increase near 10,000, while the second witnessed a little decrease, owing to the switch from standing to seated in the Hillbottom Road End. In 2001, the same stand was expanded by over 900 seats by chance.

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
