The County Ground, (SAT NAV – SN1 2ED) is a 15,728 all seater stadium and is a 66-mile journey from Le Stad MK.
Our fans will be in the Arkell’s Stand at one side of the pitch, where up to 1,200 fans can be housed.
This is an older stand with facilities to match, but at least you are under cover. If you are at the back of this stand there is one supporting pillar which may impair your view of the goal otherwise it is fine. You even get a view of some of the rolling Marlborough Hills beyond one corner of the ground!
Food on offer inside includes Pies; Chicken Balti (£3.40), Steak & Ale (£3.40), Cheeseburgers (£3.50), Burgers (£3.50), Hot Dogs (£3.80), Sausage Rolls (£2.50), Beef Pasties (£3), plus Cheese & Onion Pasties (£2.50), hot drinks and more alcoholic beverages are also served.
For those that prefer a liquid lunch we are treated to our own bar, called Bar 71, which is located by the away turnstiles, however it is quite small and tends to fill up quickly, with door men preventing anyone else going in, so that it does not become over crowded.
Alternatively, away fans can park on the cricket ground (for a small fee) and then have access to a drink in the cricket club, this is very friendly, as well as cheap.
The County Ground is walkable from Swindon Railway Station and will take you around 10-15 minutes.
