I recently visited Mansfield Town's football ground and chose to sit in the family stand. Overall, it was a positive experience. The seating was comfortable, and it was convenient to access food and restroom facilities. The overall environment at the stadium was enjoyable. However, it's worth noting that there was some swearing even in the family area. This could be a concern for families with small children, so it's important to consider this when attending a game. Despite this minor issue, I had no other significant problems during my visit, and I look forward to returning in the future.

Standard Typical old school division 2 style ground traditionally known as Field Mill or now known as The One Call Stadium, has 3 decent size stands with 1 of the old stands now closed off & used for advertising which I believe had future plans to demolish & turn into a new stand / hotel & facilities decent enough atmosphere with the vocal home crowd in the upper main stand nearest to the away end generating chants and songs, tickets generally between £20 - £26 but do tend to have decent offers on throughout the season but ought to lower the prices a bit to entice fans back and increase attendances , standard prices for a coffee / hot chocolate £2 with pies, burgers , sausage rolls , snacks etc on offer , also sells alcoholic drinks throughout the ground , plenty of pubs nearby if you know the area an easy ground to get to if you’re travelling
Great little stadium, very helpful staff and plenty of parking, nice pub with OK food on site.

History (from Wikipedia)

Mansfield Town first started playing matches there in the 1919–20 season, however for the first two years it was also used as a cricket ground by the Mansfield branch of the National Federation of Discharged and Disabled ex-Servicemen's Societies (DDSS). In 1921, the DDSS's lease on the ground ran out, and the ground was sold by its owner, the Duke of Portland, on the condition that it would only ever be used for sporting purposes.

The first 
grandstand was erected in 1922 along the length of the west side of the ground, with the other three sides mounds formed from ash from nearby coal mines, all completed by 1926. In 1929, using the money from the cup run of the previous year, a covered stand was built on the Bishop Street side, occupying a similar position to the Bishop Street Stand of today. The first terracing was built during the 1930s from railway sleepers, and lasted 20 years.

Floodlights were installed and officially switched on by 
Billy Wright on 5 October 1961 before the Football League Cup game against Cardiff City.[11]

Shortly after World War Two, concrete terracing and a PA system were introduced. The club bought land to the West side of the ground in the mid-1950s, just before the supporters' club funded the building of the new North Stand, at a cost of £30,000.

In the 1960s a new grandstand was erected on the west side of the ground after being purchased from 
Hurst Park Racecourse in Surrey. The stand itself cost £30,000, although the final amount spent was considerably more than this once the cost of transportation and reconstruction is taken into account. The stand was first used in 1966, but it was not fully completed until 1971.

Between 1984 and 1986, Field Mill was home to a 
rugby league team called Mansfield Marksman.

After plans to relocate to a new all-seater stadium were scrapped, work began in July 1999 to completely modernise Field Mill. The North Stand, Quarry Lane End and West Stand were completely demolished and new stands built in their place, including a two tier stand on the west side of the ground. The redeveloped all-seater stadium was officially opened by 
John Prescott on 28 July 2001, six months after work had been completed.

In July 2005, safety officials temporarily restricted Field Mill's capacity to 5,000 when fire safety certificates could not be located.
[12] The ground's capacity was again reduced in May 2007, from 9,368 to 4,684, when Nottinghamshire County Council, who enforced the reduction, cited a poor standard of stewarding and a lack of a pro-active approach to safety.[13] In July 2007 the capacity was raised to 6,553 following an inspection from safety officials,[14] but was reduced back to 4,684 in September after visiting Chesterfield supporters were given too many tickets by mistake.[15] Field Mill's capacity was then increased to 5,457, and in January 2008 further increased to 7,300 for the FA Cup tie against Middlesbrough after a problem with the turnstiles and other issues were resolved.[16]

In early 2010, the Mansfield Town announced plans to allow the ground to be used to hold concerts and other events to raise non-matchday income. On 22 August 2010, 
Westlife brought their Where We Are Now Tour to the ground. The event was hailed a success despite not selling out and poor weather conditions affecting uncovered fans.[17] No further concerts were announced.

In December 2010, Mansfield Town were evicted from the ground by their landlord 
Keith Haslam following a dispute over unpaid rent.[18] The club looked for alternative grounds at which to play their home games in the Conference National, including Alfreton Town's Impact Arena and Ilkeston Town's New Manor Ground. However, their first home game after the eviction was postponed in any event due to the freezing weather.[19]

The current owner John Radford confirmed, when announcing the stadium-purchase in 2012, that a clause in the sale precluded any use except for sports events.

Stands[edit]

The Ian Greaves Stand – formerly known as the West Stand, is the largest with upper and lower tiers, and executive seating. The stand has a capacity of 5,417 (2,764 in the upper tier, and 2,509 in the lower tier). The dugouts were moved to the front of this stand in late 2016, following a request from then-new manager Steve Evans, although this impeded the view of the lower-tier seats (Block D & E).[20]

Quarry Lane End – behind the South goal, housing the home fans, with a capacity of 1,968. The players' tunnel is in the corner of this stand adjacent to the old West Stand.

North Stand – behind the opposite goal from the Quarry Lane End, this was traditionally the home terrace although safety issues meant this would swap with the Quarry Lane End and become the away stand. Capacity of 1,910.

Bishop Street Stand – this stand, which runs along the side of the pitch opposite the old West Stand, was condemned prior to 2006 and is boarded up to prevent access.[21] Mansfield District Council gave planning consent for redevelopment in 2002.[22] There are plans to build a new 2,800 capacity stand including new dressing rooms and television facilities, but no developments have occurred.[23]
