Oxford United FC - Kassam Stadium
The Kassam Stadium consists of just three sides with the open west end of the ground situated behind one of the goals. The North Stand is divided for use by both home and away supporters and is the largest in the stadium with a capacity of 5,026. The East Stand is home to the more vocal home supporters and is one single tier behind the goal where as the South Stand is the main structure of the stadium, housing the Quadrangle conference centre, the Exhibition Bar, the club offices and changing rooms, and a row of 28 glass-fronted executive boxes. The South Stand is divided into two tiers, with the lower tier including the ground's Family Section.
Visiting supporters are situated towards the open end of the North stand. Views are very good and unobstructed as you'd expect from a ground built in the 21st century, whilst facilities and refreshment bars are very good too.

Where To Drink
Bob tells me: For sensible away fans the nearest pub is the Catherine Wheel in Sandford-On-Thames (http://whatpub.com/pubs/OXF/AS-35/catherine-wheel-sandford-on-thames) which is approx 10-15 minutes walk. Few pubs in town would be an issue for away fans, though the most likely for groups are the large bars on George Street - for ale drinkers there are a fair few decent pubs in the centre (http://oxford.camra.org.uk/oxford-city-centre-pubs-map/) including The Bear which dates from 1242. There are however, many places in the vicinity to grab a bite to eat before or after the game.
Parking is available at the stadium if you arrive early enough and what's more, it's free. There are 2,000 spaces available and well worth taking advantage of. There is hardly any street parking. You're warned to be very careful when parking anywhere else, especially on verges, as the wardens are very busy around the ground. As one Oxford fan has warned: "Do not rely on what other cars have done, stick to marked parking bays on roads and do not think that because your car is completely off the road on a verge causing no obstruction to anyone that it means any double yellow restrictions do not apply - they do, and you will get a nice parking fine to take home with you!
