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.
