Northampton Town FC - Sixfields Stadium
Sixfields stadium has four covered single tier stands, the largest of which, being the West (main) Stand which has a capacity of approximately 4,000. It is situated along the side of the pitch. The North and South stands are both of similar height and shape. The East Stand is still under construction, Up above the North end is a large grass bank where kids tend to gather in order to get a view of the game for free. They're only able to see the far goal but it does make you wonder why you've paid £20 to get in sometimes.
Visiting supporters sit in the South Stand, which holds just under 1000. All seats offer unobstructed views although if possible, try to avoid the back rows as there's very little leg room for some reason. Fans do have to queue to buy a ticket outside the ground and then queue again at the turnstiles. A procedure that hasn't changed since the ground was owned by the council.

There are a few pubs on the way through from the Town Centre and Train Station which is handy. You have The Rover, which is a nice pub situated five minute walk away from Sixfields towards the Northampton Saints rugby ground.
Near the ground, if you want food, you have the obvious places such as McDonalds and Burger King to pick from. There are many restaurants with TGI Fridays, Old Orleans and Bella Italia, or even Frankie and Benny's and Buddies USA .

It's rare that it gets full but still worth arriving early to choose the best spot for a quick and easy escape after the game.
