I thoroughly enjoyed my visit watching Bromley FC. The clubhouse is spectacular for a National League side, the pitch is wonderful, and the stand is fantastic. The idea of going into the clubhouse, then exiting to the stand is a really good idea. The food in there was fantastic, parking and access to and from the club was really easy. Facilities were excellent. A lovely outdoor beer garden for the early months. Only negative was the sprinkler that soaked us momentarily. Apparently this was like this the season before, and isn’t appreciated in the winter months. Also, the one stand on the half way line is for members only, which means if you want a seat, it has to be behind the goal, personally not my preference, so I stood for the match.
Had a great experience here watching Bromley and Bromley Women play on separate occasions. Great atmosphere, friendly crowd, did not feel out of place as a first time visitor watching with the home fans.
Would love to bring home some merchandise but unfortunately jerseys are not available and bucket hats are out of sizes.
Bromley moved to Hayes Lane in 1938 from their previous ground, also on the same road. It initially featured a 2,500-seat stand on one side of the pitch, with the remainder of the pitch surrounded by banking. The ground was opened by Stanley Rous on 3 September 1938, with Walthamstow Avenue winning 6–1. The record attendance at the ground of 10,798 was set on 24 September 1948 for a friendly game between Bromley and a Nigeria XI. Floodlights were installed in 1960, and were formally switched on for a game between Japan and an Isthmian League XI on 27 September. The banking was later replaced by concrete terracing, with both ends of the pitch later covered. The original stand burned down in October 1992, and was replaced by a much smaller 320-seat stand, which was opened the following year. Seats obtained from the London Aquatics Centre were installed behind one goal to meet ground grading regulations after promotion to the National League. In April 2017, the club announced that work would begin on construction of a 1,450-seat stand at the south end of the ground, and that the playing surface would be converted from grass to 3G. The stand was officially opened on 20 July 2019 and named in honour of former club chairman Glyn Beverly.
