Stadium mk, Milton Keynes
Categories: Tourist Spots, Arenas & Stadiums
Stadium mk is a football ground in the Denbigh district of Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, England. Designed by Populous, it is the home ground of Sky Bet Championship side Milton Keynes Dons F.C.., the stadium has two tiers which hold a capacity of 30,500. Should it be required, there is the option to increase the capacity of the stadium again to 45,000 with the addition of a third tier, hence the high roof. The design will comply with UEFA's Elite Stadium specifications and includes a Desso GrassMaster playing surface.The plans of the complex included an indoor arena, arena:mk, that was to be the home of the Marshall Milton Keynes Lions professional basketball team. However, the retail developments that would have provided enabling funding were deferred due to lack of financing, leaving the Lions without a home. Following the conclusion of the 2011–12 season, the Lions could not secure a venue within Milton Keynes, resulting in a move south to the Copper Box.In addition to association football, the stadium occasionally hosts rugby union. The first such occasion was in May 2008, when Saracens played Bristol at Stadium mk because Watford needed their ground for a Championship play-off. In 2011, Northampton Saints RFC used the ground for their Heineken Cup quarter and semi-final matches because their home ground is too small for major events. The stadium hosted three matches in the 2015 Rugby World Cup.Our Milton Keynes trip builder makes visiting Stadium mk and other Milton Keynes attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Me and my nephews went to the football here, was a great environment, friendly staff and a selection of food for even the fussiest footy fan!

Travelled from Oxford to Stadium MK. This was my first visit to the venue and decided to pre book parking. Paid for "Park & Walk" option. Signage near the stadium could have been a little better, but ... read more »
Easy to get to destination with plenty of retail outlets within its vicinity.and a great hotel attached to stadium.Only caution i give on a matchday is to allow extra time to park and walk over as alot of nearby businesses open their carparks for a fee,dont take closest or they ll charge up to £20 whereas two blocks up its £5 all day
Anyone looking to study for an exam would certainly benefit from the soulless nature of Stadium:MK. The ground benefits from a distinct lack of support and sound, you could almost describe it as an outdoors library. The "locals" will look to play some form of Football while a scouse shouts out some dialect of English at them. The ground also seems to benefit from great deals that seem to offer you and your entire family, a free holiday to Florida if you could please please buy a ticket. Overall I have scored this ground 5 out of 5, because it was nice being able to study 90minutes and then pop out and buy a sofa.
This is one of the best soccer stadiums in the UK by far. Well located, withe great facilities and shopping and eateries right on hand...and the attached DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel is a master stroke
Huge stadium with many, many entrances so pay attention to your ticket. Plenty of food & beverage outlets available inside. And when you're taken short don't worry - the toilet facilities are more than ample. This place can really cater for the big crowds.
The stadium itself is very good for the standard of football but the MK fan were absolutely quite which ruined the atmosphere a bit.
