The Pirelli Stadium was opened in 2005. The ground was built on the former site of the Pirelli UK Tyres Ltd Sports & Social Club, and having had the land donated to the club by Pirelli, in return for naming rights the ground cost £7.2 million to build.

The ground has seen minor capacity changes since its construction, and the current capacity stands at 6,912, with 2,034 being seated in the South (Main) Stand. The current record attendance for the stadium stands at 6,746 for an EFL Championship match against nearby Derby County.

How to get there

By Car


The Pirelli Stadium is located just off the A38. Exit the A38 at the Clay Mills junction and follow Derby Road (A5121) until you reach the second island. Take a right turn at the island and then right again into the car park.

By Train

Burton Railway Station is around a mile and a half away from the Pirelli Stadium. As you come out of the station turn left and go down the hill. Turn right into Derby Street and from there it is a straight road up to the stadium. It should take about 25 minutes to walk.

The train journey is easy from Exeter and takes around 3 hours 20 mins to four hours with a maximum of one change.

At the Stadium

Head over to the 3G pitch at the Community Football Centre for the Pre-Match Family Zone! Away fans are welcome!

Billy and Bettie Brewer will be waiting to greet you and you can enjoy a kickabout with our two club mascots.
There will be fun and games and music to get you ready for the big game.

The family activities start 90 minutes before kick off at each home game and Brewers first team players make regular appearances.

Food and Drink

Refreshments are available in the away supporters’ concourses at the Pirelli Stadium
There are bar and refreshment facilities within the away areas which offer a range of pies, burgers, hot dogs and the 'famous' Burton Albion faggots, chips and peas. Confectionery and both alcoholic and soft drinks are also available.

All of our food is cooked and served fresh, so there may be queues at peak times - but it's worth the wait! All of our bars also show live Sky Sports football and are open from 13:30 for weekend games.

Cashless payments via card or NFC (such as Apple Pay) are encouraged inside the Pirelli Stadium. The nearest cash machine is located at the Co-op Food Store almost opposite to the car park entrance.
