(4.1/5 based on 55 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Tidy stadium near by parking is not as bad as people say. I came from leicestershire and didn't know the area and i managed to park in 2 mins of arriving.
  • Tidy, compact stadium but a typical bland new build. Lacks character.
  • No away parking. Supermarket parking next to ground is limited to 2 hours, so no good for a game. Ended up parking on a dodgy street near ground. Tickets are a bit much at £22, should be £20. Food is also expensive with a pie and soft drink costing £6. Ground itself is nice, view is good of the pitch and its covered seating all round the ground.
  • Brilliant entertainment at christmas party last 2 yrs. Wonderful ground and great footballing pitch. Great for passing skills.
  • Home ground. Supermarket parking is 3 hours not 2.
