Tourist Spot Arena / Stadium
Sixfields Stadium is a 7,724-capacity all-seater sports stadium in the Sixfields area on the west side of Northampton, England.(currently 5,000) It has been the home ground of Northampton Town Football Club following their move from the County Ground in October 1994. It was also rented by Coventry City between July 2013 and August 2014. The site also hosts athletics in the adjacent stadium. Aside from being a sports venue, Sixfields also houses conference facilities.HistorySince 1897, Northampton Town had played their home games at the County Cricket Ground, sharing it with Northamptonshire County Cricket Club. Because of the larger size of a cricket pitch, the football ground only had stands on three sides. Northampton Town chose to construct their own stadium, more suitable to football, in the Sixfields area of Northampton.The stadium had been scheduled to be opened at the start of the 1994–95, but was not ready on time and as a result Northampton began the season still at the County Ground. The first game to be played there was against Barnet in Division Three on 15 October 1994. The match ended in a 1–1 draw, with striker Martin Aldridge scoring the first goal at the new stadium.

  • Went here a few times to watch the local football team the "Cobblers". Stadium itself is OK and they seem to have quite good local support. I thought the entrance cost of £20 was far too high for this...  more »

  • My second home, home of the mighty Cobblers. You'll find Northampton's finest here, a passionate group of (6,000 on a good day) "proud to be" claret and white army fans!
  • Went to watch a charity match. Parking wasn't great, match was good. Food and drink facilities very limited.
  • Getting better since new management
  • Great place to watch the local football team
  • Good eateries surrounding the ground but can get very busy on match days
