Home of the not so Mighty Whites. Nice to get back for the football though. It's had a lick of paint during the close season, and it's a perfunctory stadium. The burger at £5 was pretty nice and the programme was still good value for money at £3.50. A good place to bring the kids as it is very much a local football club.

I went to a womens lfc match, not a tranmere match. Parking was free, if you there early enough. Easy enough to get in, quick bag search then go through turnstiles. Loads of friendly stewards to tell you where to sit. Only problem was massive queue for food/drinks as service was very slow. Missed some of the 2nd half and started queuing before 1st ended.

Decent old fashioned ground. The newer stands have good, unobstructed views. Prices for food and drink a bit steep and the same stall can have two prices for the same item. Expect it to be the higher price! The fan park in the car park is a good place for a drink before the game

Enjoyed visiting Prenton Park for their game against Leicester in the cup.
Great small football ground. Easy access, you can get right onto the pitch side so fab for the kids. We went to watch Newcastle play Tranmere in the carabao cup and was excellent. Helped that Newcastle eventually won! 😉 Look how close we were to the players warming up!

History (from Wikipedia)

Tranmere Rovers F.C. were formed in 1884;[1][2] they played their first matches at Steeles Field in Birkenhead but, in 1887, they bought a new site from Tranmere Rugby Club.[1] The ground was variously referred to as the "Borough Road Enclosure", "Ravenshaw's Field" and "South Road".[3] The name "Prenton Park" was adopted in 1895 as a result of a suggestion in the letters page of the Football Echo.[3] Not strictly within Prenton, it is likely that the name was chosen as the area was regarded as more upmarket than nearby Tranmere.[3]

Because the land was required for housing and a school, Tranmere were forced to move and the name went with them. The present Prenton Park was opened by the Mayor of Birkenhead, Councillor George Proudman, on 9 March 1912.
[3] Their first match was played against Lancaster Town in the Lancashire Combination.[4] There were stands (also known as bleachers) on both sides of the pitch, a paddock and three open terraces, the general format which remained until 1994.[4]

Floodlights were installed in the ground in September 1958. The supporters' association raised the £15,000 cost of the new lights.[5] When manager Dave Russell joined the club in 1961, one of his many influential changes was to take advantage of the lights, playing regular home games on Friday nights rather than the usual Saturday afternoon. This allowed supporters to watch Tranmere on Fridays and First Division sides Everton or Liverpool on Saturdays.[6] The idea was successful and continued until the 1990s.[7]

Over the years, various upgrades and repairs have been made to the stadium. By 1968, the old wooden Main Stand was in poor condition and in need of replacement.
[4] At a cost of £80,000, today's Main Stand was erected and opened by Minister for Sport and former referee Denis Howell.[5] In 1979, the terracing on the Cowshed and Paddock was concreted.[4] The Tranmere suite was added to the Main Stand in 1988, with further bars and executive suites added soon after.[4]

Many improvements to the ground were driven by changes in 
legislation. In 1985, the Safety of Sports Grounds Act led to a reduction in capacity from 18,000 to 8,000.[5][8] The Kop End was closed, and the Main Stand capacity was reduced by 3,000, because there were insufficient access points.[5] £50,000 was spent on safety work to maintain a capacity of 8,000, and the club were unable to afford any further refurbishment.[5] But the biggest change of all took place during 1994 and 1995. The Taylor Report suggested that all stadia in the top two divisions of English football should no longer permit standing. The club's response was to redevelop three sides of the ground with entirely new all-seater stands created – the Borough Road Stand, the Cowshed and the new Kop.[4] Capacity in the ground thus increased from 14,200[3] to the 16,587 of today.[9]

In 2009, 
Liverpool F.C. Reserves moved from the Racecourse Ground[10] to Prenton Park.[11] In 2018, Liverpool F.C. Women moved here as well.[12]
