Directions:

By Car
Leave the A1 (M) at Junction 7 and take the A602 towards Stevenage. Go straight across the first roundabout and as you approach the next roundabout you can see the floodlights of the ground over on the right. However, if you go straight across the roundabout then you will see the entrance on the left to the large official car park which is free. The car park though has only one entrance/exit, so this can lead to bit of a bottleneck after the game has finished.

By Train
Stevenage Railway Station is about one mile away from the ground. Leave the station booking hall and turn left towards the town. Take the stairs on the right before the bridge over the dual carriage way and head along the A602, Lytton Way. At the roundabout which has the police station on the right, take the second exit into Six Hills Way. At the next roundabout take the third exit (South) continuing along the A602, Monkswood Way, passing a large Asda store on your right. After about 3/4 mile (McDonalds/Burger King etc will be on your right) you will arrive at a roundabout and the ground will be opposite you on the other side of the A602.

You can also get the Arriva No.5 Bus to the ground, from Stop E at the nearby bus station. The ten minute journey costs 1.50 single, or 2.30 return. As the ground is not easily spotted in the distance, ask the driver to drop you off on Monkswood Way, opposite the entrance to the retail park.


 

General Information:

The Lamex Stadium has been the home ground of the recently renamed Stevenage FC since 1980. The ground has a capacity of 7,100, with seating for 3,142. Formerly known as Broadhall Way (and still referred to as such by many fans) the stadium was renamed because of a lucrative sponsorship deal signed with the Lamex Food Group in early 2009.

Although generally modern, the ground retains plenty of character. On the west side is the all-seater, single tier, covered Main Stand. Opposite is the sizeable, covered East Terrace, which is quite steep in nature. Although, in keeping with the remainder of the ground which is relatively new, a gabled roof with a clock opposite the halfway line maintains some historic character. Behind the goal, at the north end of the ground, is a small terrace that is predominantly covered, although there is an open area to one side. At the opposite end of the ground is the Buildbase South Stand, an all-seater, single tier, fully covered stand. Opened in 2001, this stand is allocated to away fans. It has an electronic scoreboard on its roof. With Stevenage securing promotion to Football League Two as Conference champions in 2009-10, the Lamex Stadium hosted League football for the first time in the 2010-11 season.

A Fans View:

To be honest, the ground doesn't look much from the roads running past it, as most of the stadium is obscured behind trees. Inside though, you will find a nice tidy stadium that although generally modern, still has a bit of character about it. Also those trees give the ground a pleasant green 'leafy' surround.

On one side is the all seated covered Main Stand that looks quite impressive and is single tiered. It is unusual in so much that at the back of the stand on either side of it, there are large gaps between the back of the roof and the stand below. Whilst in the middle of the stand at the back, there are a number of glass fronted areas to various Club offices. Opposite is the fair sized East Terrace, which is covered and quite steep. Even though like the rest ground, the stand is relatively new, it does have a gable with a clock sitting on its roof above the half way line, which gives it a touch of character. Oddly though it has a sizeable service tunnel located towards the centre of the stand with the terracing extending around it.

At one end is the South Stand, which is another single tiered, all seated, covered stand. This stand which was opened in 2001 is given to away supporters. There is an electric scoreboard on the roof of this stand. Opposite at the North End of the ground, is a small covered terrace. This terrace is mostly covered (around 3/4's) with a portion of open terrace to one side. A set of four new floodlights (one pylon in each corner) were installed for the start of the 2007/08 season.

On promotion to the Football League, the Club changed its name from Stevenage Borough FC, to Stevenage FC, which was its original name when founded in 1976.
