This stadium really is worth a day out!!! It was recently voted 'Best Stadium in England' by Total football magazine, and you can see why. The ground has obviously been designed with the supporters in mind, and the facilities are good, and above all respected by the fans. This makes for a clean, tidy, and modern stadium.
The stadium has a quarter of a mile of bars around the concourse, but you wouldn't think so when you're trying to get a pint at half time! A half time trip to the toilet isn't too much fun either!
The capacity is currently 48,000, but preliminary planning permission has been granted to extend the south stand, raising the capacity to approx. 54,000, with the boards finally goal being a stadium that will host approx. 63,000.
The ground also hosts a sports theme restaurants, bars, and carvery's, so there really is no need to stop and eat on the way. Like many other premier clubs, ground tours are offered on non-match days, and you can obviously find the customary superstore (0191-551-5050)
We can not really say any more about this stadium... If you have not already been, then GO!
