Definitely worth a visit. Plenty of parking space, superb Grade II listed building for a stand and cafe/bar. I didn't like the track around the perimeter, so just stood at the end of the pitch behind one of the goals.

Poured with rain all evening but credit to the fans in attendance for creating an excellent atmosphere. The players seemed to respond too. Excellent marshalling/stewarding inside and outside the ground (not a phrase a lot of football fans would normally use!!). Seemed to be an extra cost to access the lounge or main seated area so I gave them a miss. Some raised terrace areas alongside the pitch but the view from there was still obscured by the huge dugouts for the subs so I stood behind the goal under cover. Main stand is set someway back from the pitch because the pitch is surrounded by a running track and because of a wide concourse area....they must need binoculars to see from up there. The terraces behind each goal are placed right up against the back of the net making it ideal for a bit of banter with the keepers (as witnessed by both sets of fans). Some great songs from the Town fans and a very entertaining evening. The club has done exceptionally well to create, what I presume is, this phoenix club after the demise of the original Enfield FC who played at a stadium which originally stood about half a mile away from this one. Excellent parking. Getting away afterwards was easy. Great to get back watching some live football again. What's not to like?

History (from Wikipedia)

The Queen Elizabeth II Stadium is a multi-use sports venue in EnfieldLondon. Built initially as a venue for athletics, in 2011 a three-year refurbishment was completed to allow the stadium to be used for football.[1] The Stadium is a Grade II Listed Building.[2]

History[edit]

In 1939, construction of a new sports venue for Enfield began. The centerpiece was an athletics stadium, with additional space on the site for ball sports and a swimming pool.[1] Due to the Second World War, work on the site was suspended, with the stadium not being completed until 1953.[1] The athletics stadium, named after Queen Elizabeth II for her Silver Jubilee in 1977,[3] was used as a training venue by a number of significant British athletes, including Sebastian CoeDaley Thompson and Linford Christie, all of whom won Olympic titles.[4]

By 2008, the venue had fallen into disuse. 
Enfield Town F.C., which had been formed in 2001, and who had been groundsharing with Brimsdown Rovers,[5] came to an agreement with Enfield Council to refurbish the stadium for use as a multi-use venue, with the track being resurfaced and the stadium brought up to the standard required for football in the Isthmian League.[5][6] Enfield Town moved to their new stadium in 2011, with their first official game taking place against a Tottenham Hotspur XI.[7]

In 
2014, during upgrades to the New River Stadium, the London Skolars played six home games at the QEII stadium during the second half of the rugby league season.[8]

In 2018, the stadium was one of the venues for the 
2018 ConIFA World Football Cup, with ten games played there: six group games, and four in the knockout round, including the final on 9 June 2018.[9]

Facilities[edit]

The main element part of the stadium is the pavilion, completed in 1953. This is a Grade II listed building built in Art Deco style,[10][1] and serves as the clubhouse, main stand and changing rooms. Opposite the main stand is a second, small seated stand, while behind each goal, inside the perimeter of the running track, are two covered terraces. The running track was reduced from eight lanes to six during the refurbishment from 2008-2010.[11]
