Directions:

By Road

Follow A449 north to M5 northbound which leads onto M42 and continue until you reach A46 northbound and follow the A46 into Lincoln (which leads onto the High St) and the ground is indicated from there. If you follow the signs for 'away coaches' then this leads you onto the A158 South Park Avenue, where there is plenty of street parking to be found (although it is a ten minute walk around to the ground). Otherwise the signs lead you to the ground, where if you arrive early then you can park behind the Stacey West Stand (cost £4), otherwise, street parking.

Ian Gibson adds; 'On matchdays the South Common is open for parking, this can be found at the beginning of South Park Avenue when coming in from either the A46 or from the High Street. It's free to park and only about 5/10 mins from the ground'.

By Train
Lincoln Central Railway Station is around a 15 minute away from Sincil Bank. Turn 'left out of the train station and walk up to the traffic lights next to St. Mary's church. Turn left at these traffic lights onto the High Street, walking over the railway level crossing. Walk along the High Street (passing many good pubs) for approx 10 minutes before turning left into Scorer Street. Walk along Scorer Street until you come to a bridge across the Sincil Drain river. Turn right immediately after crossing the bridge onto Sincil Bank, the ground is straight ahead. Thanks to John Smalley for providing the directions.

Alternatively there is a shorter route (but you miss those fine pubs!): 'Come out of the station and turn right to go down the road. About 30 yards ahead on your right you will see some steps and a bridge over the railway. Go over the bridge and once on the other side follow the road down to the ground'. Thanks to Ben Schofield for providing these directions.

General Information:

On one side is the large all seater Co-op Community Stand. This large single tiered covered stand opened in 1995 and has a capacity of 5,700. Opposite is the Lincolnshire Echo Stand, a small old looking covered stand (although in fact it is comparatively modern being built in 1987). It is seated, but only runs half the length of the pitch, straddling the half way line and hence there are gaps at either side. One gap has now been partly filled by a tiny covered Family Stand. Both ends are small covered affairs. The Bridge McFarland Stand is all seated and has a row of executive boxes running across the back. This stand has a couple of supporting pillars at the front. The other end is the 'Stacey West' all seated, covered stand, for home supporters. It was named in memory of the two Lincoln supporters who lost their lives in the Bradford City Fire at Valley Parade in 1985. Unfortunately this stand is normally only open for games where a larger than normal attendance is expected.

A Fans View:

Most visiting fans report having an enjoyable day at Sincil Bank, with the home supporters noted as particularly friendly. The atmosphere within the ground is excellent, aided by the chants of the passionate Lincoln fans, often aided by the LCFC band. The facilities and view of play in the Lincolnshire Co-Operative Community Stand are pretty good and there is a good range of quality food available, including pies, burgers and Lincolnshire sausage rolls.

The “Centre Spot” Supporters’ Club, behind the South Park Stand, admits away fans. The beer and hot pork rolls are reported excellent. Otherwise, there are numerous good pubs along High Street. Those particularly recommended include the CAMRA-listed Golden Eagle, the Ritz, which serves reasonably priced food, and the nearby Anchor.
