Yeovil Town – Huish Park
Huish Park has a capacity of 9,665, with seating for 5,212. It is the home ground of Yeovil Town FC.
The stadium is in the suburbs of Yeovil and was built as a replacement for the former non-league club’s previous ground, The Huish, in 1990.
The ground has two seated stands (the Cowlin Stand and the Agusta Westland Community Stand) and two separate standing areas (the Blackthorn Stand and Copse Road Terrace, the latter being the away stand). The away end is uncovered, so be prepared to get very wet if it rains!

Where to Park?
There is a decent-sized car park at the ground. Otherwise, there is plenty of street parking available on the roads near the ground. Early arrival is advised in the winter, as the overspill car park is a field which does not drain terribly well!
