My 16 year old grandson has just signed for AFC Fylde as goal keeper, the stadium and training facilities are really brilliant. The onsite college is also an added benefit for these youngsters. Congratulations to the owner and those who help these stars of the future to achieve the best. This stadium is only a few years old and has got a lot going for it. Well worth a look if your passing!

History (from Wikipedia)

On 19 January 2008, AFC Fylde announced plans to move from their current ground at Kellamergh Park in the village of Warton to a then unnamed location, and in February 2010 unveiled plans for a new Community Sports Complex in Wrea Green; however, the planning application was rejected by Fylde Council in April 2012.[1]

On 3 September 2013, the club announced that new plans had been drawn up for a £18 million multi-sport development, Mill Farm Sports Village, on the outskirts of 
Wesham.[2] As well as a 6,000-capacity Football League standard football stadium with supporters' facilities, the development would include community sports pitches, sports science facilities, and commercial opportunities including a supermarket.[3] The planning application for the stadium and associated facilities was accepted by Fylde Borough Council on 4 June 2014.[4]

Preston architecture company the Frank Whittle Partnership Limited (the FWP group), who have been involved in the successful design and delivery of a number of other football stadiums in Lancashire [5] was chosen to design the sporting village. The prime developer chosen was Warden Construction Limited, also of Preston. Construction began in March 2015 [6] and was completed by the middle of 2016 . The ground opened on 13 August 2016 [7] for the club's first National League North match of the season against Brackley Town. The final cost of the sports village was approximately £25 million.

Design and Facilities[edit]

The main structure within Mill Farm Sports Village is the football stadium.

The stadium is designed to hold up to 6,000 spectators in three stands. The main grandstand offers 2,000 seats and hospitality areas, and the east and south stands provide covered terracing. The stadium is described as "simple yet elegant"; it is decorated almost solely in black and white colours for its outer/inner cladding and combines a smooth, curved roof.

Customer facilities include:

  • 290-seat sports bar ("Bradley's") featuring over 20 large-screen TVs
  • 80-seat restaurant with roof terrace
  • 40-seat cafe
  • conference and event facilities across 9 rooms
