Guide to Sixfields

The home fans have three other sides to choose from. There is the new East Stand, which was first opened in 2016, with 1,900 seats available under cover. With works still to be completed, it is hoped that it will accommodate the Executive Boxes and all the other corporate facilities.

On the other side of the PTS Academy Stadium is the Main Stand, a two-tiered affair, which have the dugouts located directly in front. Either end of the ground both look the same, both being smaller, all-seated and covered.

Northampton Town have a nickname of “The Cobblers” in reference to the town’s history with shoe-making industries. They also have a club mascot called Clarence the Dragon.

Their club colours are traditionally claret and white, and they have local rivalries with fellow League Two team MK Dons and League One side Peterborough.

The PTS Academy Stadium is built on a leisure complex on the outskirts of Northampton, so visiting fans on arrival are pretty much confined to the complex in terms of places to eat and drink. Towards the top end there is a Flaming Grill pub, which offers real ale, serves food and shows televised sport. Behind this is a Tenpin Bowling Alley which also has a bar. Nearer to the stadium there is a Frankie & Benny's restaurant, and there are also a variety of other eating places nearby, including a KFC, McDonalds and a Pizza Hut. Northampton have a supporters bar called “The Carrs Bar “ which away fans are welcome to go in but there will also be a bar in the away end from 1pm on Saturday.

Please do not park in the nearby restaurant and cinema car park. It is not permitted and you could get a £60 parking ticket.

There is another car park for supporters, which is a five-minute walk away and situated at the top of the road opposite a pub called Walter Tull - this is also £4 to park.
