Love how the ground is randomly at one end of retail park behind a "Hollywood Bowl." The ground itself is a decent little ground, and when we visited the home end Vs Wrexham it had some good atmosphere. We ended up turning up late, but the ground staff were great and helped us out. Food and drink cost exactly what you'd expect and taste alright. Travel there is about 15 minutes in a car from the city centre or the number 9 bus goes from the city centre to the retail park. I liked the place. I'd go back.

Knocking off 2 stars for two reasons. Firstly the decision not to allow us to support our team in the away end. Instead we were shoved into 2 end blocks of the East Stand. And secondly I was told I couldn’t display my Slough Town flag because I didn’t have a Fire Safety Certificate. 🤷‍♂️😩🤯🤬 Bewildering. I asked a steward if I could display my flag on some netting which helped segregate the supporters, which he agreed to. As soon as I got it out my bag, another steward came flying up the stairs to ask for a Fire Safety Certificate. Why would I need a FSC? They don’t even allow smoking in the stands! How is it going to catch fire? The problem here is that ex-Football League clubs have these big grounds that they don’t fill in the hope they can get promoted. The ground is just not suited to non-league football. To me it was just 4 separate stands. You can’t move between them, so basically you’re stuck where you are. And because it’s stuck in the middle of a shopping/leisure complex you are competing for car park spaces, some of which are only 2 hour maximum stays. You have to pay for the park & ride car park which is £5. The ground is modern and looks good but is not my cup of tea. Sorry.

History (from Wikipedia)

The stadium is projected to have an all-seated capacity of 8,005.[36] It will comprise four stands; the East Stand (Main Stand), the West Stand, the North Stand and the South Stand.[36] The three-floored East Stand is to accommodate hospitality guests, players, officials and the media, and will be connected to the adjacent retail and community facilities.[36] The stands will stretch the length of the playing field, and each corner will host stadium facilities, including matchday emergency services, stewarding, groundsman accommodation, plant space and a fan zone.[36] The seats will be coloured red, white and blue, a combination of the colours of both teams.[36]

The pitch will use 
reinforced natural grass, with provision to counter frost.[36] The dimensions for football matches will be 105 by 68 metres (115 by 74 yd), with 3-metre-wide run-offs on the sides and 6.5- metre-wide run-offs behind the goals, which will meet FIFA recommendations.[36] The dimensions for rugby league matches will be 100 by 68 metres (109 by 74 yd), with 6-metre in-goal areas, and 3-metre-wide run-offs on the sides and after the dead ball lines.[36]

Adjoining the stadium will be the leisure complex, which will include a 25-metre, six-lane swimming pool, a sports hall for 
netballbadminton and basketball, a gym with dance and spinning studios, an adventure sports zone and three 3G five-a-side pitches.[20] A community hub will house health and well-being services for York residents and visitors, including clinical services, an independent living assessment centre and a library.[20]
