Where to Eat?

Outside the stadium is a big area wth various types of food ranging from pizza to steak and curry plus bars and a giant screen showing match highlights. You'll find the usual selection of burgers, chips and pies in the stadium.

Where to Drink?

Drinking in the town centre and jumping on a tram to the ground is the best advice as most boozers near the ground aren't welcoming. However, you could try the Stanley (or Sports Bar) based on the A6010 (Pottery Lane) or the Townley on Albert Street as they come recommended - just don't wear colours.

What's their ground like?

Built for the Commonwealth Games in 2002, City became the stadium's tenants afterwards and spent 20million on re-fitting it for football.

The stadium is two-tiered around the fully-enclosed bowl, with a third tier added on the larger stands that run the length of the pitch.

Away fans are located in the corner of the South Stand behind the goal, where up to 3,000 can be accommodated.

Songs to sing back
