Stadium Name: Sandy Park Stadium
Sandy Park Way
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.
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.
