Holker Street (capacity 5,045)
Having spent almost 50 years in non-league football, Barrow returned to the Football League in 2020. The club have been playing at their Holker Street stadium since 1909. The club have won the FA Trophy twice in their history. Firstly in 1990 and then again in 2010.
The stadium itself is a traditional stadium which has benefited recently from the addition of roofing over another of the stands, which just leaves the Crossbar Terrace as the only completely uncovered stand. The ground previously hosted speedway meetings during the 1970’s before they had to remove the track to comply with league regulations.
Away fans visiting Holker Street are primarily located in the Holker Street Terrace, with an allocation of around 650.
There is car parking at the stadium itself, although there is limited spaces. There is also plenty street parking in the surrounding area, as well as pay and display car parks in the Town centre.
