Autovillage Main Stand
The Autovillage Main Stand was built in 1963 and has seating for 1,068 supporters. Contained within the building are the club's administration offices, social club and conference facilities, executive boxes and also the dressing rooms.
Paddock & Tunnel Enclosures
These sections of terracing in front of and alongside the Autovillage Main Stand prove popular with the club's older established supporters. Many of the fans who stand in these areas have followed the club for many years dating back to the non-league days. The Paddock area has a capacity of 704 and the Tunnel Enclosure can accommodate a further 370 home fans plus a number of disabled supporters.
Speedy Skips Stand
Situated behind the goal at the Prestbury Road End of the ground is the 'home end', a bank of terracing which was covered in the summer of 2000 and can accommodate 1,980 fans. The terrace is popular with younger supporters and tends to be the place where most of the noise comes from these days.
Colin Farmer Stand - Sponsored by Denman Financial Planning
This 2,000-seater facility was completed in November 2001. Light and spacious with excellent viewing lines, the Colin Farmer Stand has proved highly popular with supporters and is always the first section of the ground to sell-out for big games.
The Whaddon Road End of the ground was re-developed in 2005 with the creation of the Hazlewoods Stand, which has 1,100 seats. Away fans are placed in this part of the stadium.
