Parking is available at the Cattle Market (opposite the away end) which costs £3.50 a car or at Nottingham City Council's Eastcroft depot (NG2 3AH) at £4 a car. The depot is a five minute walk from Meadow Lane, located just off London Road (A60), opposite Hooters. The entrance is signposted with banners and is manned by security guards throughout the match. There is some street parking to had in the local area, although this is more limited than it once was, as Nottingham City Council have recently introduced pay and display parking on roads, in close vicinity to the stadium.

General Information:

Meadow Lane has a capacity of 20,300, but at present is restricted to 13,725 due to safety requirements. The more vociferous home fans tend to gather in the Kop End behind the goal whilst the other two stands Derek Pavis (side) and Family (behind the goal) are very similar in terms of being single tiered. The family stand has an added pillar situated right in the middle of the stand which is something worth remembering when purchasing your tickets.
Away Fans

Visiting supporters are situated at the Kop end of the Jimmy Sirrel stand where 1,400 seats are made available. More can be catered for on cup nights. The stand has excellent acoustics and boasts 2 Refreshment Bars serving the usual array of football stadium food at very decent prices.

A Fans View

Travel: Drove, and parked as recommended, parked for free on Incinerator Road behind the Kop. Spot on really, though there didn't seem to be too many spaces so getting there early seems to be advisable. Very ideally placed ground though, as the station in the city centre is only about a 10 minute walk away too.

Refreshments: Nottingham is a brilliant city for football. Both grounds are only separated by the Trent, and there are loads of bars around there, and then the city centre is only a short walk away too, so tons of choice. One of those places that must be fantastic to visit with a big following on a sunny day, …not so much on a freezing snowy day in January!

Impressions: The ground has been redeveloped on all 4 sides, and has mostly flawless views, just a couple of pillars behind the two goals. The ground has a brilliant look about it from the inside, with four separate stands, the huge and imposing Kop which must be awesome full, and the away fans given the entire Jimmy Sirrell Stand along the touchline if required.

Atmosphere: A bit disappointing, though when it did get going, it was excellent acoustically. The game itself seemed to drain atmosphere today though, the early red card prompting anger from the Notts fans who never really got going until their late equaliser, while the Blades fans got a bit irate at the failings of their side to bother doing anything after their early goal, despite playing against 10 men for 65 minutes.

Anything Else: There was a kids 5 a side game on the pitch at half time, that provided some fun, as the Blades fans treated it like the real thing, going mad when the side attacking the away end scored, that must have been some experience for the kids playing, and they all came over and applauded the away end after as well!

Enjoy: Nottingham in itself is such a brilliant city for football, and Meadow Lane certainly lives up to making it a good day even after you've gone through the turnstiles!
