Ground Guide to Accrington Stanley

The 5,450-part seated The Wham Stadium (Crown Ground), Livingstone Road (Sat Nav – BB5 5BX) and is a journey of 188 miles from Stadium MK.

When it comes to tickets allocated for this fixture, it might depend on numbers but usually has two alternatives. The Coppice Terrace at one end of the ground which is uncovered and can hold 1,800, or the Eric Whalley stand which accommodates about 500 people.

It is the usual football ground fayre on sale, comparably priced with other well-known outlets.

A pre-match pint can be sampled in the Club Sports Bar called “Redz”, which is located behind the Main Stand. Alternatively, you could try The Crown, which is right by the ground on Whalley Road, and welcomes away supporters. On occasions Stanley put together a Fan Zone for games, but this is usually for more local derbies.

There is a small carpark at Stanley, and it fills up quickly, so get there early or street parking is the alternative. Be aware to watch out for residential parking restrictions.

For those taking the train, Accrington has a station served by trains from Manchester Victoria and Leeds. It is about a mile to walk, approximately 20 minutes, or a £5 taxi ride. Head out of the station, down the slope (signposted M65 Blackburn) towards the large viaduct roundabout.
