As Brucie used to say "Good game, good game" Interesting first visit to Aldershot for a football match
First time for many years at an Aldershot match, great crowd and atmosphere, end result wasn't brilliant. No apparent trouble, had a drink at the Crimea before,plenty of police presence but they handled things really well in what can be a difficult job.

History (from Wikipedia)

Current capacity[edit]

The capacity of the ground was reduced at the end of the 2007–2008 season to 7,100.[2] This includes a total away allocation of 1,100 of which around 250 is seated.[3] The capacity was previously set at 7,500, however promotion to the Football League meant changes were introduced which resulted in the capacity being reduced.[4]
Approximate capacity breakdown:
  • South Side: 1,580
  • East Bank: 4,180
  • North Stand: 1,740
  • High Street End: 200
Total: 7,600


Aldershot F.C. era[edit]
Aldershot F.C. adopted the "Rec" as their home ground upon formation in December 1926. The Recreation Ground was owned by the local council and situated on Aldershot High Street. The first stand, the south stand, was opened at the beginning of the 1929–30 season and still remains today. A crowd of 3,522 witnessed the shots record a 2–1 victory over Norwich City on the day of its opening.[5] The club's last game there was in the Football League Fourth Division against Lincoln City on 14 March 1992 – 11 days before their demise. However, one more competitive game did follow for the club - against Cardiff City, also in the league, at Ninian Park.[6]

Aldershot Town F.C. era[edit]
After the demise of Aldershot F.C., the Recreation Ground remained without any tenants. Aldershot Town were formed soon after and consequently chose to adopt the Recreation Ground as their home.
In March 2018, Aldershot Town presented proposals for the redevelopment of the EBB Stadium to 
Rushmoor Borough Council which would see the potential development of a new stadium, containing both seating and standing areas, that will give the club a 'long-term home from which to build our ambitions on the pitch'.[7]
