Plan your visit to the home of Northampton Town
The Club moved from the old County Ground to Sixfields in October 1994. This neat all seater stadium is located on the south west outskirts of Northampton.
Sixfields has three small covered single tier stands, and another larger double tier covered West Stand (capacity 4,000), at one side of the pitch.

This is the main stand, seating around 4,000 fans. This is for home supporters only and runs down one side of the pitch.
DAVE BOWEN STAND
This is the home supporters area behind the goal, and is an unreserved seating area. Just under 1,000 fans can be located here.
EAST FAMILY STAND
This runs down the side of the pitch and is opposite the main stand, seating around 1,800 fans. This is for home supporters only and aimed at families and also allows wheelchair supporters to watch the game from a raised platform.
Away supporters are housed in the South Stand at one end of the pitch, where 850 supporters can be accommodated. If demand requires, an additional 300 seats can be made available in the Alwyn Hargrave Stand.
The club has received awards for the facilities provided for disabled supporters.
Sixfields is a no smoking venue, in accordance with the Health Act 2006.

Travelling by bus? Bus timetable here
Stagecoach run buses from Greyfriars bus station. You can get the D1/D2/D3 (15 and 45 mins past each hour) from bay 12 that run to the bus stop by the Sixfields roundabout. The 22/22A (10 and 40 mins past the hour) runs from bay 14 to the bus stop by the Study Centre on Edgar Mobbs Way. The number 5 from bay 14 (56 and 26 mins past the hour) runs to the bus stop by Sainsburys. You can also get the 9/9A from bay 13 (every 10 minutes) but you have to walk from the Weedon Road. Ask for a day rider (£3.40 which is cheaper than official car parks) and you get unlimited travel on all Stagecoach buses for the whole day so it is a reasonable price and allows you to have a drink!
Travelling by train? Northampton train station is over two miles from the ground, so it is probably best to hire a taxi. Buses also run directly past the train station.
