The Proact Stadium is an all-seater football stadium in Whittington Moor, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, on the site of the former Dema Glassworks. It is the home of Chesterfield F.C., replacing the Saltergate Recreation Ground as the club's stadium from the start of the 2010–11 season.It has a capacity of approximately 10,500, cost £13,000,000 to build and was designed by Sheffield-based architects Ward McHugh Associates.Initial sponsorship under the name the b2net Stadium was revealed on 14 August 2009. However, after two seasons and following the acquisition of b2net by Swedish company Proact, the renaming of the stadium to the "Proact Stadium" was officially announced on 13 August 2012.The stadium has been chosen to stage England Under 19 and Under 21 fixtures, and hosts numerous non-footballing functions, from weddings to pop concerts.Stadium planning and developmentThe Dema Glass site emerged as a possible location in October 2004 at a time when the club were already pursuing planning permission to redevelop Wheeldon Mill, the town's former greyhound stadium. Chesterfield Borough Council viewed the site as part of a masterplan to regenerate the A61 corridor, an area to the north of the town centre and including the Chesterfield Canal. Agreement in principle between the club and local authority was struck in February 2005, though progress faced initial delays.

  • One of the best small new stadiums. One that actually seems to have been designed and built with regular footy fans in mind. Good spaced concourse and facilities. Friendly & helpful staff. Decent pies. Good seating that is sensibly stewarded.
  • Great place on a sunday carbooting on a hard ground. Go nearly every week weather permitting.
  • Went for seminar. Easy parking, friendly staff and super support.
  • Always use Chesters to meet up with my mum friends,polite and friendly staff and reasonably prices. Plentiful parking too.
  • It's a good. Facility
