Although the ground is too big for the club, at the moment, it has a great feel to it. Views are good. Atmosphere was cracking, even with the ground a third full.

It's not often that I go to watch Crewe play, but it's a nice stadium and good atmosphere. The rating is for the stadium and not the surrounding roads, which can get busy. Best to wait until a lot of others have gone if going by car.

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.

Great little stadium. Always a great view wherever we sit! Staff are lovely and parking is never an issue. I feel like I'm a bad omen as every game I've gone to, Crewe have lost. Crewe draw or win when I don't go, so either a coincidence or maybe I'm a bad luck charm! For the good of the club and fans, I may avoid going to as many games! 😂 Despite this, I love each game I've been to.

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!

History (from Wikipedia)

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.[1]

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.
[1] 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.[2] 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.[2]

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.
