St James Park (capacity 8,541)
Exeter City started to play their home games at St James Park in 1904, when the club was formed, and have remained there ever since. The stadium is currently undergoing significant development, with the old Grandstand replaced, and the St James Road Terrace also due to be replaced.
The new Grandstand (Stagecoach Stand) is an all-seater single tiered stand with a capacity of around 2,800. Whilst it isn’t much bigger than the old Grandstand, it doesn’t have any supporting pillars so fans have a much better view of the match. The St James Road Terrace will also have a new covered Terrace which was purchased from Barnet FC.
Away fans visiting St James Park are currently located in just one block of the Main Stand while all of the construction work takes place, with a modest allocation of just 350.
There is no parking on matchday at the stadium and very limited street parking due to a number of residents only schemes. There are, however, a few council owned car parks within walking distance.

The closest station is actually St James Park which is adjacent to the stadium. However, because this is situated on a local line, fans are more likely to arrive into Exeter St David’s or Exeter Central, which is just under a mile away.
Exit the station and turn left onto Queen Street. Continue along until the road meets the High Street and turn left onto Sidwell Street. Continue all the way up this road to the crossroads, and then turn left onto York Road and cross the road. Then take a right onto Oxford Road, where you will see the stadium approaching in front of you.
