From the M25 take the M23 Southbound towards Gatwick Airport and Brighton. At the end of the M23 (before it becomes the A23) leave the motorway at the last exit, Junction 11 (sign posted A264 Horsham, Pease Pottage Services). At the roundabout at the end of the motorway slip road turn right onto the A23 going towards Crawley. The ground is down on the left just before the next roundabout. It is a little obscured by trees, so look for the large red and white football on the roundabout itself and you will see the stadium entrance. Turn left at the roundabout and then left again for the stadium car park, which costs £2. Peter Bellamy adds; 'There is an overflow car park in the offices at Broadfield Park, accessible from the A23 as you come down the hill from the motorway'. Otherwise street parking.
Please note that after the end of the game it can take quite a while to exit the stadium car park. So if you are looking for a quick getaway after the game, then it may be an idea to street park instead.
Crawley station is just over a mile away from the stadium. You
can either take a taxi (about £6), or from the bus station across the road, you
can take a Fastway number 10 bus to the ground (this runs every ten minutes).
Otherwise it is about a twenty minute walk.
As you come out of the station turn left and walk down to the T-junction. At the junction turn left into Brighton Road. Keep walking straight down Brighton Road for just under a mile and at its end turn right. You should now be able to see the stadium in the distance behind the traffic island. Use the underpass to cross the A23 to the ground.
The West Stand is the main stand, running two
thirds of the length of the pitch. It contains club offices, merchandise shop,
changing rooms and hospitality. It is raised above pitch level meaning that fans
have to climb a small flight of stairs at the front to enter the seated area.
Prior to the building of the East Stand, it was the only stand in the stadium to
contain seats and a small section at the north end of the stand was available to
away supporters. It is now entirely for home support.
North and South Stands
Two identical small roofed terraces. The south stand contains the most vocal home support and the north stand is allocated to away fans. Both stands curve around the corners of the pitch to meet up with the west stand.
The East stand is an all seated roofed stand with a capacity of 2,154. It is mainly for home fans although some seats at the north end of the stand are available to away supporters. The stand opened for the first time on Good Friday 2012 for the League Two home game against Crewe Alexandra.
The stand was planned following promotion to the football league in May 2011, to comply with Football League regulations. Work on the East Stand of the stadium started in early February 2012. It replaced the uncovered East terrace which was a standing area.
Alongside the stadium renaming in September 2013, the East stand was renamed as The Checkatrade.com Stand.

A Fans View:
Away fans are primarily housed in the KR-L Stand
at one end of the ground. This mostly covered terrace can accommodate up to
1,600 fans. A small number of seats are also available to away supporters in the
West Stand. The segregation of the terrace can be adjusted depending on the size
of the away following. For example clubs will a small following will be given
only the North West corner up to the corner flag, whilst the largest will be
allocated that corner plus the whole of that end. The facilities at the stadium
are pretty good and it is normally a relaxed and enjoyable day out.
