The Stadium

  • Name: The Completely-Suzuki Stadium
  • Opened: 1927
  • Capacity: 7,066
  • Address: Whaddon Rd, Cheltenham GL52 5NA


The stadium, on the site of what was the Berkeley Hunt kennels, was built by the Cheltenham Original Brewery in 1927 and has been the home of Cheltenham Town since 1932, although it did not host senior football for 67 years. Cheltenham marked their 70th anniversary at the stadium by winning promotion to the Football League Second Division, the third tier of English football, for the first time. The record attendance is 8,326, at a game versus Reading, FA Cup 1st Round, 17 November 1956.

Away fans are located in the Hazlewoods Stand, which has a capacity 1,100, with additional away supporters accomodated in the end blocks of the Colin Farmer Stand. 

How to get there

The Completely-Suzuki Stadium is located in the centre of Cheltenham, and is easily accessible by car!

To find Cheltenham on Google Maps then put in ‘Cheltenham Town Football Club’. If you are using a Sat-Nav then the postcode is GL52 5NA.

By Train

Cheltenham can easily be done on the train in just 1hr 45 from Exeter St Davids. There are hourly departures at .27 past the hour, arriving into Cheltenham at .13 past the hour. 

For example, the 11.27am from St Davids will get you to Cheltenham at 1.13pm.

Cheltenham Spa Station is around 2 miles away from the stadium, so many away fans choose to take a taxi rather than walk. Alternatively, The Stagecoach D bus will take you into the town centre which is much closer. 


There are a limited number of spaces available in the Club car park at the ground which cost £5. However, these can be pre-booked by calling the Club on 01242 573 558. The Parklands Social Club does allow some parking at £8 per car and cash only.

If you're arriving a couple of hours before kick off then there is street parking available on streets running off Whaddon Road itself.

All away supporters are seated in the Hazlewoods Stand, which is an all seater stand located behind the goal and accessed via Whaddon Road.

New Fan Zone

There are currently no bars or alcohol served in the ground for away supporters, but there is a fan zone right next to the away entrance in a car park, with toilets, a bar and music!
The zone opens from 12pm.

Inside the Ground


Food and Drink

Once you are inside the away end, there is one facility to purchase food and there will be no alcohol available to purchase. 

You will find a catering van just inside the car park for all fans and a fish and chip shop on Whaddon Road. The Club bar also serves food.

Away fans are welcome to use The Robins Nest, the club bar, but it does have a maximum capacity and is accessed on a first come first served basis so there may be times when this is not accessible due to crowd numbers. There is an overflow open air bar in the car park too, weather permitting.

There are a variety of pubs in the town centre only a short 15 minute walk away.

Pubs for Away Fans

There is a club bar at the ground called the Robins Nest which allows in small numbers of away fans for a £1 admittance fee. Around a ten minute walk away are the ‘Sudeley Arms’ and ‘The Conservatory’ on Prestbury Road on the outskirts of the town centre. Otherwise very near to the ground is the Parklands Social Club.
