The People’s Pension Stadium (capacity 5,996)
Crawley Town have played at Broadfield Stadium (currently known as The People’s Pension Stadium) since it was opened in 1997. Previously, the club had played at the old Town Mead stadium since the late 1940’s before it was sold to developers. A relatively new club to the football league, it offers a new opportunity for those ‘doing the 92’ to add another stadium to their list.
The West Stand dominates the stadium, and the first row of seats are raised above ground level which gives it a unique look. The North and South Stands are identical covered terraces, while the East Stand was opened in 2012 and is all-seated.
Away fans visiting The People’s Pension Stadium are located in the KR-L Stand, with an allocation of around 1,600.
There is a car park at the stadium, and also two signposted overflow car parks which are handy for an escape on the A23. Otherwise the best option is street parking in the surrounding area of the stadium, although this shouldn’t be required with the parking provision that there is.

If you choose to walk, take a left when you exit the station onto Station Way. When you reach the crossroad, turn left onto Brighton Road. Continue down this road for around a mile all the way to the end and then turn right onto Southgate Avenue. Cross the roundabout and you’ll see the stadium in front of you.
