Our Impressions of St Andrews

Within the last couple of years much redevelopment has been undertaken at St Andrew's, with both the Main Stand and the Railway End being redeveloped. These stand now offer modern facilities and refreshments, and are complemented by the linked Kop and Tilton Road stands. The Kop and Tilton Road stands were only opened in 1994, and in their day they won several awards for design and supporters' facilities.

The Railway Stand is now a two-tier, 8,000 all seater stand, and has pushed the overall capacity up to an impressive 30,000. Away fans are also located in this new stand, with the top tier allocated to families, and the bottom tier to the visiting support. The sounds a little odd, but works really well.

Dermot Bolger, a Man Utd Fan has e-mailed us, and says 'Finding the ground and parking is relatively simple and there is even free residential parking in certain places near the ground.

The accommodation inside is a new stand with modern facilities such as bookmakers etc. And the view is good. The atmosphere is a little disjointed and cold (though the fact that Birmingham were incomparably dull could have played a part in that!).

But getting served for food or drink was almost impossible and this is while the game is continuing on the pitch. It took me 20 mins to get served and meant I missed two goals - not impressed!'

Disabled Facilities at St Andrews

For a stadium of this size, the allocation of only six disabled spaces for visiting supporters is somewhat scandalous. These fans are located in Paddock F of the Main Stand, and will be charged £7, with the helper only paying £5 (odd, normally the disabled person goes cheaper!). There is disabled parking available if pre-booked, and it is also recommended that you pre-book your tickets. For the visually impaired, there are seats with a commentary available. Again please book these.
