Arranged tickets to see the friendly against the Blades. Was having trouble setting up an account online and the club helped immensely to make sure I had some tickets for my son and I. First class and nice ground as well

It was my first time there. What an experience. Over 9,000 supporters and the quality of the football shocked me, it was that entertaining for a team not within the football league proper. I was expecting a lot of the big hoof upfield but instead it was ball control, slide rule passes and cross field 40 yarders to switch the play, trapped deftly upon receipt. The atmosphere was buzzing. The slightly disappointing first half made up for by a contrasting second half display and 4 goals. Much respect for Maidstone too and their amazing noisy supporters. It's a long way to come when already relegated and to get a second half thumping. But they kept on singing undeterred. This is what "grass roots" football was meant to be like, for the people, safe for kids, men and women alike. Something sadly lacking in the aloof realms of the premiership. The stadium itself seemed crisp and modern, not what I expected either. I did think for a first timer seat directions once inside the turnstiles could be a bit clearer, we had to ask stewards twice for directions, but that's a minor gripe really All in all a thoroughly enjoyable day out.

Staff/stewards are all very friendly and helpful. The prices are a bit on the steep side though, Premier League prices at a National League ground. 😲 Easy enough to find parking in a side street. All in all, a decent football ground 👍🏻

Couple of little gripes about pricing of tickets and grub in ground but apart from that, it is a very decent place . Should be playing in league 1 not non league.

History (from Wikipedia)

The Dema Glass site emerged as a possible location in October 2004 at a time when the club were already pursuing planning permission to redevelop Wheeldon Mill, the town's former greyhound stadium. Chesterfield Borough Council viewed the site as part of a masterplan to regenerate the A61 corridor, an area to the north of the town centre and including the Chesterfield Canal.[10] Agreement in principle between the club and local authority was struck in February 2005,[11] though progress faced initial delays.[12]

Designs for the proposed new stadium were provided by local architects Ward McHugh Associates who had previously undertaken commissions on the redevelopment of the South Stand at 
Twickenham and Everton's Goodison Park stadium.[6][13]

Planning permission was granted after a public meeting held on 1 July 2008,
[14] with the plans forming part of a wider mixed-use development. The land at the site was handed over to the club in February 2009[15] and, after decontamination, construction officially started on Thursday 23 July 2009, overseen by GB Development Solutions.[16] Separate buildings which formed part of the overall scheme included a Tesco Extra superstore, Tesco petrol station, a KFC, an Enterprise car rental and other office facilities.[1]

The new stadium was handed over to the club in July 2010
[17] and granted its full capacity licence from the Safety Advisory Group after hosting two limited capacity games against Derby County and Barnsley.[18]

Name changes[edit]

Initial sponsorship under the name the b2net Stadium was revealed on 14 August 2009.[19] However, after two seasons and following the acquisition of b2net by Swedish company Proact,[20] the renaming of the stadium to the 'Proact Stadium' was officially announced on 13 August 2012.[21] Due to UEFA restrictions, when it hosts England youth matches it is known as Chesterfield FC Stadium.[22]

The Proact Stadium, which will become the Technique Stadium effective August 2020.
