Looking Ahead to the Weekend Trip to Mansfield

26 September 2019

THE all-seated One Call Stadium is the home of Mansfield Town, which holds up to 9,186 supporters. The 534-mile round trip from Home Park takes just over four hours each way by car.

On the West side of the ground, the Ian Greaves Stand is named after a former manager of the club and is a two-tiered stand, with a capacity of 5,500. The opposite side of the ground on the Bishop Street side is unused. This side runs the entire length and holds a number of large advertising boards.

The other two ends, the North Stand and the Quarry Lane End are almost identical single-tiered stands, which can both accommodate just under 2,000 supporters. The away supporters are housed in the North Stand.

Previously known as Field Mill, the stadium changed its name to One Call Stadium as part of a corporate sponsorship deal.

The Stags, which is the club’s nickname, finished in the play-offs in the 2018-19 season but were unable to bag their place in League One after losing to Newport, 5-3 on penalties.

Mansfield has two mascots, technically, with one being a stag and the other being a doe. This comes hand in hand with the nickname, the Stags.

The club colours are orange and blue. The first time the Stags had those club colours was in 1919 but since then they have had light blue, black and white and even brown and blue.

There is a bar at the ground called the Sandy Pate, which is free to enter, welcomes away fans and shows Sky Sports. Otherwise, about 10 minutes away from the stadium, there is the Railway Inn on Station Street. This pub has a mixture of home and away fans and offers local real ales and food.

There is limited parking at the ground, which costs £5 and there is also the station car park, costing £4 for the day. This car park is located behind the adjacent Portland Retail Park, which means it is well placed for the away end.
