Sixfields Stadium, Northampton

3.2
Sixfields Stadium is a 7,798-capacity all-seater sports stadium in the Sixfields area on the west side of Northampton, England. 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 for 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 at Sixfields 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.

  • As part of a club sponsor we were given hospitality treatment for the day. Wonderful staff with a real passion for there work. A good 3 course meal and great entertainment. The football was more than good enough (always is when enjoying a 2-1 win)
  • Easy to get to and parking is just across the road for £4...close to restaurants as well. A good away day.
  • Great entertainment within corporate hospitality. Excellent supporters especially considering how poorly the football team are performing. A nice family atmosphere.
  • Good but still looks like a building site waiting to be finished
  • Easy to get too from M1. Match days stadium parking £4, unofficial parking £3. Official parking on solid ground, unofficial on softer ground, both a nightmare to exit after a match. Standard football ground refreshments, though a bit pricier than a lot of others. Independent burger vans offer better value.
