30/9/23 First ever visit to the Ray Mac Stadium for an Emirates FA Cup 3QR match. Salisbury FC 0-0 Slough Town Adult entry £14 (up by £1 from League admission) Car Park £1, if you want a seat it’s another £1, Programme £3, Badge £3, Chips £3. I’ve docked a star purely on the club putting prices up for a ticket, charging extra for a seat and charging for the car park which I completely disagree with. If you want people to come to your club then don’t milk them for money. Other than that the stadium was a bit weird but excellent. Strange decision to keep half of it shut until kick off when all I wanted to do was walk around it to take some photos. At one end you have a big covered terrace, whilst at the other it’s open to the elements and only 3 steps high. Opposite the main stand you have some terracing but also two separate covered seated stands. The main stand is pretty much all seats with a couple of small spaces for standing. The bar is upstairs and has everything you would expect. The volunteers were very friendly and welcoming as were some of the supporters I spoke to. Some of the stewards did take their jobs a bit too seriously enforcing daft rules. Not allowing drums was a big mistake. I can understand not allowing them for an evening game but for one in the after is just wrong. I did enjoy my visit (apart from the result as we were hanging on most of the second half) and would recommend you come here if you’ve never been.

The ground was really good. The bar staff extremely helpful. The cheese burger was very tasty. We had a very entertaining afternoon despite being called a "Moronic Gosport Gypsy" by a Salisbury Supporter, which we ignored. Thanks for a great afternoon.

Friendly environment. Main bar well equipped but the outisd bar was slow service, due to the lady being on her own. Ground is clean and pitch in great condition.

What a great local, friendly football club. The staff behind the scenes are great and always willing to help to make sure you have the best matchday experience. A big shoutout to Ian aswell the way he has handled the Sponsorship/Advertisement for us here at JCS Air Conditioning Services Ltd has been exceptional since day one and we look forward to having a long working relationship with Salisbury FC not only a Sponsor but a Fan since 2006. COME ON YOU WHITES!

History (from Wikipedia)

The Raymond McEnhill Stadium is a purpose-built 5,000 capacity football stadium in SalisburyWiltshire, England. It is the home of Salisbury Football Club.

History[edit]

In 1997, Salisbury City moved to the stadium which was built at Old Sarum and was named after the then chairman, Raymond McEnhill. The stadium capacity is officially 4,000, although it is technically able to hold 5,000 with covered accommodation for 2,247 fans. The stadium has achieved the ground 'B' grade standard.[1]

A then record crowd of 2,570 saw the 
FA Cup first round 2–0 defeat by Hull City in 1998.[2] This figure was beaten twice in the 2006–07 FA Cup. On 11 November 2006 a crowd of 2,684 saw Salisbury beat Fleetwood Town 3–0 in the first round proper. Then in the second round proper a crowd of 3,100 saw Salisbury draw 1–1 with Football League One club, Nottingham Forest.[2]

The record league attendance at the stadium was set on 28 December 2009 when a crowd of 2,677 saw Salisbury draw 1–1 with 
Oxford United in a Conference Premier match.

On 12 May 2013, a new record attendance at the stadium was set when 3,408 spectators turned up to watch Salisbury beat 
Dover Athletic 3–2 in the Conference South play-off final. This win earned them promotion back to the Conference Premier, after two seasons in the Conference South.

With Salisbury City F.C. folding in 2014 following a failure to pay debts, a new phoenix club 
Salisbury F.C. took over the lease at the stadium in early 2015, after overcoming a proposal by the estate of Raymond McEnhill to sell the land for development. The record attendance for the stadium was superseded by the new club on 19 March 2016, when a crowd of 3,450 saw Salisbury lose 2–1 to Hereford in the semi-final of the FA Vase competition.
