The Stadium

  • Name: Highbury Stadium
  • Opened: 1939
  • Capacity: 5,327
  • Address: Park Ave, Fleetwood FY7 6SP


Football had been played in Fleetwood before a more definite picture emerged in the 1880s. Fleetwood Rangers was the first of a number of incarnations. The club reformed as Fleetwood Wanderers in 1997 and became Fleetwood Freeport just after the start of the 1997-98 season.

The Highbury ground had been empty for a couple of years with almost all the facilities vandalised. A number of willing volunteers set about clearing up. After much effort, the club was accepted for membership of the North West Counties League. At the start of the 2002-03 season, it reverted to its former name of Fleetwood Town.

Fleetwood Town now play in Sky Bet League One, with Highbury Stadium’s capacity 5,137 across four stands. These includes the Parkside Stand (2,088 seats), Memorial Stand (1,702 standing), Percy Ronson Stand (731 standing) and Highbury Stand (616 seats).

How to get there

By Car

The postcode for the stadium is FY7 6SP

By Train

The most convenient mainline station is Blackpool North. The station is 7.5 miles from the football ground so you’ll need to grab a cab or bus.

The train from Exeter St Davids takes around 5 hours and involves 2 changes, however the latest train back leaves at 4.50pm so an overnight stay would be required.
