Least intimidating college football stadiums
Away fans are located in the Arkells Stand at one side of the pitch, where up to 1,200 fans can be housed.This is an older stand with facilities to match, but at least you are under cover.
Capacity: 15,728 (all seated) Address: County Road, Swindon, SN1 2ED Telephone: 08 Fax: 08 Ticket Office: 08 Pitch Size: 110 x 70 yards Club Nickname: The Robins Year Ground Opened: 1896 Shirt Sponsors: IMAGINE CRUISING Kit Manufacturer: Puma Home Kit: Red and White Away Kit: Black and White A traditional looking ground, that has an interesting mix of stands.
Both sides are large two-tiered covered affairs that tower above the two smaller ends. Built in 1971 the stand is a fairly simple affair and has the players tunnel and team dugouts in front.
It has windshields to either side and a few supporting pillars. Opened in 1994, this stand has a cantilevered roof, allowing spectators to have an uninterrupted view of the playing action.
It has a large upper tier, with a much smaller lower tier.
The Fast Plant Town End is a small covered stand, that is the traditional home end.
Unfortunately it has a row of supporting pillars that run across the front of it. It has a small electric scoreboard situated above it, next to which is a Rolex Clock.Oddly on one side, the base of one of the floodlight pylons is situated within the stand, with the pylon itself rising up through the roof of the stand. Apparently this is the only Rolex clock that can found within a football ground anywhere in the World.The ground also benefits by a striking set of four floodlight pylons.There is a small kiosk at the back of stand serving amongst other things a range of pies, but be careful when taking them back to your seat.The entrances to the seating areas are through large solid doors, and to compound matters they open out towards you!Teams with a larger away following can also be allocated the Stratton Bank End if required.
