The Stadium

Sandy Park is located on the eastern edge of the city beside Junction 30 of the M5

The ground is dominated by the grandstand that sits along one side of the pitch and is flanked by two standing areas known as the North-West Terrace and the Watson Terrace.

Directly opposite the grandstand is the East Terrace, a small covered standing section, divided into two (North and South),

At one end of the pitch is the North Terrace which also offers covered standing, whilst the South West Communications Stand at the other end is home to around 2000 covered seats.

 

Future Developments:

In the summer of 2012 the club announced a five-year plan to redevelop the ground to hold 20,600, which will be carried out in phases, starting with the existing west stand to provide a much larger bar area and extending the grandstand the full length of the pitch (in place of the existing temporary seating). The second phase (subject to finance) will involve building a large conference centre to the south and then extending the main grandstand around the corner and along the south end of the ground. The proposed stands behind each of the goal posts will be much larger than the existing main grandstand, but the proposed east stand will be similar in size to the main stand, due to its proximity adjacent the M5 motorway restricting its size.

The first phase of the redevelopment (costing £10million) was carried out over the summer of 2014 and Sandy Park reopened in September that year with an increased capacity of 12,500, the capacity that the stadium will have when it hosts matches at the 2015 World Cup. The Conference & Banqueting facilities of Sandy Park were also increased, doubling the capacity for conferences and other events.

Seating is readily available for any helpers to sit close by. Ready access is available to wheelchair accessible toilets in the West Grandstand and in rear of the East Terrance and behind the North Terrace by the Rubber Crumb.

Where spectators have other mobility impairments (e.g. frail/elderly, on crutches, etc) and require parking in the car park, they can inform the Club in advance and the Club will make every effort to reserve an appropriate parking place and Ground seating.

Stewards will take necessary steps to minimise interference in viewing lines for disabled or mobility impaired spectators.

If a visually or hearing impaired spectator requires the assistance of a guide dog, the dog will be allowed access to the Ground free of charge – other dogs are permitted into the Ground only at the discretion of club officials depending on the dog’s nature and match/crowd circumstances. If required, a suitable seating or terrace location will be provided where the dog can comfortably rest. Additionally a bowl of water may be provided upon request. Guide dogs may also be admitted into the Clubhouse.

Where a disabled person’s condition requires attendance of a personal assistant, the Club will admit the personal assistant free of charge.

Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football (Wed, 17 May 2017)
Colin Boag is a regular columnist in The Rugby Paper, and I usually find him worth reading. However, he is one of those rugby writers who like to blame all rugby’s ills on football. He was at it again in a recent column. He was writing about players’ attempts to get others booked, and predictably … Continue reading Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football

Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU. (Mon, 08 May 2017)
The Champions Cup final this weekend will lack a team from the Pro 12 for the fifth consecutive season following the Munster and Leinster semi-final defeats. The tournament has become an Anglo-French production, although in those five years only four clubs have made it to the final: Toulon, Saracens, Clermont Auvergne and, last year, Racing … Continue reading Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU.

Championship to Premiership – Mind the Gap (Tue, 25 Apr 2017)
Just to clarify at the outset, I am talking about rugby union’s particular problems with the gap between the Premiership and the Championship, though I am aware of the parallels with the round-ball game. The other Saturday I passed a very pleasant afternoon watching London Scottish end their Championship season with a dismal defeat against … Continue reading Championship to Premiership – Mind the Gap

Bath v Brive – The Rematch (Tue, 04 Apr 2017)
Bath v Brive April 1 2017   Back in the early days of the Heineken Cup it wasn’t entirely clear if all this cross-border competition was good for the game. France was the frontier town, and nowhere was more dangerous or more gilded than Brive, smack in the middle of the Limousin. This stand-alone town … Continue reading Bath v Brive – The Rematch
