WHERE TO PARK:
If you follow the signs for 'away coaches' this leads you onto the A158 South Park Avenue, where there is plenty of street parking to be found (although it is a ten minute walk around to the ground). Otherwise the signs lead you to the ground, where if you arrive early then you can park behind the Stacey West Stand (cost £4), otherwise, street parking. On match days the South Common is open for parking. This can be found at the beginning of South Park Avenue when coming in from either the A46 or from the High Street. It's free to park and only about 5/10 mins from the ground.
OVERVIEW OF GROUND:
The CO-OP Community Stand, which was opened in 1995 and seats 5,700, is along one side. Opposite is the Lincolnshire Echo Stand, built in 1987, which only runs half the length of the pitch, straddling the half way line and hence there are gaps at either side. One gap has now been partly filled by a tiny covered Family Stand.
Both ends have small covered stands. The IMPS Stand is all seated and has a row of executive boxes running across the back. The other end is the 'Stacey West' again all seated,. It was named in memory of the two Lincoln supporters who lost their lives in the Bradford City Fire at Valley Parade in 1985.
WHERE THE VALIANTS WILL BE SEATED:
Away fans are now housed behind the goal in the Stacey West stand where up to 2,000 can be seated. The facilities and view of the pitch are quite good.
WHERE TO GET A DRINK:
Away supporters have been admitted to the Supporters Club (called the Centre Spot) behind the South Park Stand. The Mansfield Smooth beer and the hot pork rolls were reported to be excellent. There are plenty of good pubs to be found if you head along the High St towards the town centre. The Golden Eagle on the High Street is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. Wetherspoon's pub 'Ritz' is on the High St, serves reasonably priced food and ales.
WHERE TO EAT:
If you can gain entrance to the Supporters’ Club the hot pork rolls are highly recommended. Other wise food outlets can be found on the main road. Alternatively there is plenty of choice at the ground kiosks, including the delicious 'Football's Famous Chicken Balti Pie', burgers, Lincolnshire sausage and bacon rolls.
