We had a fantastic tour when our children were mascots last week. They also got the chance to practice on the pitch which was just brilliant. I can't thank the tour guides we had enough....they truly added that special touch to what was a great day.
Not a bad ground, with a decent main stand. Quite a low attendance, but the fans behind the goal created a decent atmosphere.
A special mention for the programme and badge shop outside - hundreds of cheap programmes in good condition, dating back to the 60s!
We attended the macc vs congleton game
The atmosphere was good in the main south stand
It was easy to get in, and all stewards were helpful
Food was served quickly with a good selection of pies
Pitch is in terrible condition though, it looks like the south stand means not enough light gets to one half of the pitch.
Good day out thanks Crewe Alex
Good seating for away fans and a low stand roof amplifies crowd noise which can create a great atmosphere. Prices are average but like a lot of football this might be prohibitive for a lot of people now or very soon. Once again a community club doing its best but the P. A. system needs sorting as it's almost impossible to hear properly.
Crewe had initially played at the Alexandra Recreation Ground, also on Gresty Road and located just to the north of current site. After leaving the ground towards the end of the 1895–96 season the club played at a variety of venues, including in nearby Sandbach, before moving to the original Gresty Road ground in 1897. In 1906 the ground was demolished to make way for the construction of new railway lines, and a new Gresty Road ground was built directly to the west of the site. The new ground initially had a stand on each touchline, one of which had been moved from the first Gresty Road ground, and some embankments around the remainder of the pitch. After a fire, a new Main Stand was built on the south side of the ground in 1932. The record attendance of 20,000 was set on 30 January 1960 for an FA Cup match against Tottenham. In the 1990s Gresty Road was rebuilt, with all-seater stands constructed on all four sides of the ground. On 31 May 2015, the ground held an international friendly match between Northern Ireland and Qatar.
