Pirelli Stadium (capacity 6,912)
Burton Albion have played at the Pirelli Stadium since 2005, after moving from their Eton Park home which is also located on Princess Way. The move was a necessity to match the ambitions both on and off the pitch for Burton.
The Stadium is divided into four single tier stands. The South (Main) Stand is the only all-seater stand, while the other three stands are terraced. Other features of the stadium include the scoreboard located on the roof of the East Terrace, and the Police Control Box located in the corner between the South and East stands.
Away fans visiting the Pirelli Stadium are predominantly located in the East Terrace, with a typical allocation of around 1,400, with an additional 400 seats made available to visiting supporters in the Main Stand.
There are a number of parking options when visiting the Pirelli Stadium, including a car park at the stadium itself, as well as an overflow car park, and street parking.

The Pirelli Stadium is around one mile away from Burton Railway Station, which is served by trains from Derby and Nottingham to the North, and Birmingham to the South. It should only take around 25 minutes to walk, or there are a couple of options for buses (V1 and V2) which will drop you right outside the stadium.
If you’re walking, exit the station and turn left and go down the hill. Take a right on to Derby Street, and continue along this road for around a mile until you reach a roundabout, where you should continue straight across. Keep going until you reach another roundabout, and take a left into Princess Way where you should see the stadium in front of you.
