My first visit to the new ground and was impressed with how nicely everything is presented. There is a small club shop, bar and toilet facilities all with easy access. You can walk around the whole pitch and there are a few covered stands to use.
Match days are fantastic. From the carpark to the ground you have, what I presume are, volunteers helping with crossing and guiding you in the right direction. Friendly faces meet you at the turnstiles and once inside it's easy to get a beer and some food. The tea wagon on the side of the pitch offers some warming refreshment. Fans mingle. Football that entertains. I coulnt ask for more.

Always love catching a match at the Hornet's new ground. A beautiful setting and ground facilities to match any at this level, and probably above. Good food and drink on offer and a very friendly welcome. A great place to bring the kids to enjoy football in a safe environment at a reasonable price. A good level of football and I have seen some spectacular goals. Who needs the Premier League?!

History (from Wikipedia)


The club sold their ground at Queen Street, which had been their home since 1904, to property developers and moved out in 2008. A two-season groundshare with Worthing was terminated after one season. The club hoped to return to Horsham and build a new ground in Holbrook, North Horsham, but despite the club having bought the site, planning permission was refused at a council meeting held on 1 July 2008.[6] The club withdrew their appeal against the decision on 15 April 2009, and turned their focus instead to building a new ground at the "Hop Oast" area to the south of Horsham.

The initial proposal, which would have seen the installation of two 3G pitches and a two-storey clubhouse, returned a majority verdict of 13-9 in favour of rejecting the application at a council hearing on 20 Jan 2015, citing issues such as safety concerns and the perceived construction of a 'business in the countryside', despite the site already hosting a golf club and fitness centre. On 21 March 2017 the submission of a revised plan for a reduced capacity of 1,300 spectators and a single-storey clubhouse was overwhelmingly accepted by 19 votes to 1. A separate application to sell off part of The Holbrook Club site for housing to help finance the building of the new ground, as well as securing the long term future of the Sports Club, was also passed.

With Horsham YMCA announcing their intention to end the groundshare arrangement at the end of the 2016-17 season, Horsham FC signed a contract to play their home matches at the headquarters of the Sussex FA at Culver Road, Lancing, an arrangement that lasted for two seasons while the new ground was built. Following its completion in June 2019, a minimum three-year sponsorship deal was agreed with Camping World for naming rights. The first match at The Camping World Community Stadium was played on 13 July 2019, a friendly fixture versus 
Hartley Wintney, with the official opening of the stadium taking place a week later when Crawley Town were the visitors. The first competitive fixture saw Horsham and Leatherhead draw 1-1 in an Isthmian League Premier Division match on 10 August 2019.[7] In March 2020, the stadium was named Best New Non-League Ground by Groundtastic magazine.[8]
