About the Ground.

Crewe make the journey down to Northamptonshire and the Sixfields stadium in Northampton.
Sixfields opened in 1994 after the club had moved from the County Cricket Ground which was a weird set up.
The ground has 7,653 seats and has a 150 year lease in which they are looking to develop the ground more with a capacity of 15,000.

Where to Drink.

With the ground being on the outskirts of the town not many boozers are about. However there are two near to the ground these being Magic Tower and The Sixfield Tavern although the Magic Tower do not let away supporters in.

The Sixfields stadium is well signposted around the area. There is a fair sized car park located at the ground, which costs £2. Make sure though that you arrive early as it has been known for it to get full for the more popular games. There is also a council owned car park situated behind the away stand which costs £3.50. Also parking in the nearby cinema and restaurant car parks is not allowed, and parking there may result in your car being clamped!
