Jonny-Rocks Stadium (capacity 7,066)
The Jonny-Rocks Stadium has been home to Cheltenham Town since 1932, though it did not host league football until 1999 when Cheltenham were promoted as Conference Champions. The stadium has a fairly modern feel about it, with two of the stands opening in the 2000’s, though it still has a lot of character.
The Colin Farmer Stand and the Hazlewoods Stand are the most recent additions to the stadium, opened in 2001 and 2005 respectively. The stadium is enclosed between these two new stands, although it isn’t used for supporters. The Main Stand, opened in 1963 is a combination of seating and terraces, but doesn’t stretch the full length of the pitch.
Away fans visiting the Jonny-Rocks Stadium are located in the Hazlewoods Stand, with a typical allocation of around 1,100.
There is limited parking at the stadium itself, but the nearby social club does offer parking as well. There is also the option to park and ride at Cheltenham Racecourse.

Cheltenham Railway Station is around 2 miles away from the stadium, so many away fans choose to take a taxi rather than walk. Alternatively, The Stagecoach D bus will take you into the town centre which is much closer.
However, for those that wish to walk, exit the station and turn right onto Gloucester Road. Continue until you reach St George’s Road and take a right. Follow St George’s Road before taking a left onto Royal Well Road which becomes Clarence Parade. Turn right on to Clarence Street and then follow this all the way up until you can turn right onto Fairview Road. You will eventually turn left on to Winchcombe Street which then becomes Prestbury Road. Follow this around and over the roundabout, and then turn right onto Whaddon Road. You’ll then see the stadium approaching in front of you.
