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.

There is provision for 68 spectators in wheelchairs at set locations around the stadium. Entry to seating in the West Grandstand must be made through the North turnstile to gain access to the upper concourse and the South Gate for seating around the pitch circulation areas. 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.

Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal (Tue, 29 May 2018)
Longevity has come up short. The announcement that Arsène Wenger would leave Arsenal meant this season was the last for the longest-serving club heads in football and rugby’s premierships. Similar to Wenger at Arsenal, Jim Mallinder at Northampton had gone from managing the champions to missing out on a place in the top four for … Continue reading Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal

Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better? (Tue, 01 May 2018)
Is rugby popular, or not very popular at all? The answer is, perhaps weirdly, both. When it comes to international rugby, cup finals, or some annual “special” games, it attracts big numbers. 55,000 fans went to Murrayfield to see Saracens beat Clermont in 2017, 74,000 watched Wales beat Scotland, 82,000 watched England beat Wales and … Continue reading Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better?

Rugby’s Blame Game (Thu, 12 Apr 2018)

England’s failure. Blame it on…. (Tue, 27 Mar 2018)
After England’s failure at the Six Nations, finishing only above Italy, (at least no- one has pretended that it was anything but a failure) the knives have all too predictably been going in all directions. Quite a few have landed in Eddie Jones’ back, but many commentators have looked at the Irish and asked what … Continue reading England’s failure. Blame it on….

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other. So we’re all on CCTV in and around the ground, and the whole … Continue reading Football and Rugby crowds
