Directions:

By Car

First thing to remember is that the ground is not actually in Grimsby, but the neighbouring town of Cleethorpes. The ground is on the A180 which runs between Grimsby & Cleethorpes. Cleethorpes is well signposted from Grimsby town centre.

At the end of the M180 continue along the A180 towards Grimsby. After around 14 miles you will near Grimsby town centre. Continue along the A180 following signs for Cleethorpes. On reaching a McDonalds sign on your left and the Blundell Park Hotel on your right, turn left into Imperial Avenue for the Club entrance.

There is no car park at the ground, therefore only street parking. As you drive along the A180 towards the ground, the home end appears first, then after the McDonalds is the away end. From there, continue towards Cleethorpes and try any of the side streets to the left or preferably the right and you should find a parking spot okay.

By Train

Cleethorpes railway station is about a mile from the ground and takes around 15-20 minutes to walk. Exit the station and turn right; then turn left onto Station Road. At the end of Station Road turn right onto the High Street. Follow this road down to the roundabout; where you turn right onto the Grimsby road (A180). Continue straight for approximately half a mile and you will see the floodlights of the ground on your right. Turn right into Neville Street and then left onto Harrington Street; entrance to the Osmond Stand for away fans is on the left. Thanks to Andy Cowling for providing the directions.

Nathan Jackson a visiting Lincoln City fan adds; 'Alternatively you can walk to Blundell Park along the sea front. Cleethorpes train station, is located near the sea front, so on leaving the station, turn so that you are facing the sea, and the proceed left along the front. Just keep straight on until you see the ground on your left. Just before the ground there is a foot bridge that goes over the railway. Proceed over the footbridge, turn right and you will find further down on the left in-between some houses the away fans entrance. The walk should take about 15- 20 minutes and is a bit more interesting for supporters, with a number of arcades, chip shops and pubs located along the way.

General Information:

The ground, which opened in 1898, is the lowest football stadium in the UK, just 2 feet above sea level. On the West side of the ground is the two-tired Carlsberg Stand, which is the tallest stand in the ground.

It was opened in 1981, replacing the old Barrett Stand. The stand only runs half the length of the pitch, straddling the half way line. The upper tier is covered and the lower tier open, with corporate boxes between the two. The stand also houses the club shop and ticket office.

Opposite is the old Main Stand, which is small, covered stand and has a large number of supporting pillars running across the front of it. The central section of this stand dates back to 1901. The Main Stand houses the changing rooms and the players’ tunnel runs from its centre between the two sets of dugouts. Home fans are located in the Pontoon Stand at the North end, behind the goal. Built in 1961 and financed by Grimsby fans, the seats in this stand correspond to the club’s black and white colours.

Away fans are housed at the South end in the Osmond Stand, which was built in 1939. The club is hoping to relocate to a new ground on the western outskirts of Grimsby at Great Coates, adjacent to the A180 dual carriageway. Planning permission has been granted and if all goes to plan the new stadium will be ready for the 2010-11 season.Last Season: 4th, Conference Nation League (Play Off Winners)

Average Attendance: 4,357

A Fans View:

The first thing several away fans have noted at Blundell Park is the biting, cold wind blowing off the North Sea.

The ground is small, but the passionate home fans contribute to a good atmosphere with excellent vocal support for their team. Some fans have been a little disappointed by the view of play from the away section, which is impeded by numerous supporting pillars. The snack bar serves cheap, good quality food and the service is excellent. The stewards reportedly adopt a relaxed approach and the Grimsby fans are very friendly. Overall, fans describe a trip to Blundell Park as a very enjoyable day out.
