This was an amazing place, I would highly recommend it to all who see fit to visit. The staff are friendly and the service was outstanding. The pictures attached are representative of how I felt after visiting. If you have any questions then drop me a message.
Great place for Luton fans to have a pre season get together. Would like to have seen a few more locals though. Staff all excellent and very courteous. Definitely need to get the tannoy sorted at the away end. Thanks for a great day.

Fantastic. Everyone I've come into contact with the club has been friendly, couldn't do enough for me and has gone above and beyond. It's makes a change to be valued as a supporter. If you're a football fan, no matter what team you support, go and see a game here.

I could be biased, as I am an NTFC fan, but I'll reflect honestly on facilities and experiences. Seats - a decent view from wherever you sit but the first few rows in all stands - wear a raincoat, wrap up warm or wear sunglasses depending on the weather! Toilets - Typical football toilets. They can smell, and get busy really quickly but they're often clean. Food and drink - a few kiosks to choose from. Prices are high (as you expect at grounds) but service is usually quick. Carr's Bar is a good place for a pre and post drink. Shop - good quality stock (can be expensive) and staff are lovely. Really small shop though and gets busy on match day. Hospitality - a lovely experience! Tom and his team are welcoming and make it a great day with entertainment enjoyable. The food is always delicious and well presented. I won't talk about the football!

History (from Wikipedia)

Since 1897, Northampton Town had played their home games at the County Cricket Ground, sharing it with Northamptonshire County Cricket Club. Because of the larger size of a cricket pitch, the football ground only had stands on three sides. Northampton Town chose to construct their own stadium, more suitable for football, in the Sixfields area of Northampton.

The stadium had been scheduled to be opened at the start of the 
1994–95, but was not ready on time and as a result Northampton began the season still at the County Ground. The first game to be played at Sixfields was against Barnet in Division Three on 15 October 1994. The match ended in a 1–1 draw, with striker Martin Aldridge scoring the first goal at the new stadium.[2]

Because of a rent dispute between the owners of 
Coventry City and the landlords of their home ground, the Ricoh Arena, Coventry started a groundshare with Northampton in the 2013–14 season.[3] This arrangement was due to continue for three seasons,[4] but in September 2014 Coventry returned to playing at the Ricoh Arena.[5]


West Stand

The largest of the stands, seating just under 4,000 home supporters on a match day. The West Stand also accommodates the Cave & Sons Boardroom, the Able Print Players Lounge, the Grosvenor Casino 1897 Suite, Carrs Bar, and changing rooms.

Sheinman Opticians (North) Stand[edit]

Previously named the Dave Bowen Stand after ex-Northampton Town player and manager Dave Bowen, who helped take the club from Division Four to the First Division during the 1960s, the North Stand is behind the goal nearest to the hill. It seats approximately 900.

East Stand[edit]

The East Stand is the location of the Mick George Family Enclosure and faces the West Stand. It can seat approximately 1,974 fans and is usually reserved for home supporters, although if the opposition sell their allocation in Moulton College Stand, they are usually sent an extra 450 tickets for the south end of this stand. The stand was commended for its facilities for disabled supporters by The Football Ground Guide.

Imperial Cars (South) Stand[edit]

Standing opposite and identical to The Sheinman Opticians Stand, this end is reserved for away fans. Until the 2015/2016 season the only occasion on which this stand has held Northampton Town supporters was against Chester City on 29 April 2006 when the stand was split and supporters segregated to allow the maximum number of home supporters to witness the club's promotion to League One.

During the 2015–16 season, the stand was split between home and away fans numerous times because of high demand from Northampton Town fans.

This stand holds 900 fans.
