LNER Stadium (capacity 10,120)
The LNER Stadium (historically known as Sincil Bank) has been the home of Lincoln City since 1895, with the club having previously played at the John O’Gaunts stadium since their formation in 1884. “Sinny Bank” as it is known amongst locals is actually overlooked by Lincoln Cathedral.
The largest stand at the LNER Stadium is the Lincolnshire Co-operative Stand, which holds around 5,700 supporters. This is a covered single tiered stand that was opened in 1995. Behind one goal is the Stacey West stand, which were named after lifelong Lincoln City supporters Bill Stacey and Jim West, who sadly lost their lives during the Bradford City stadium fire.
Away fans visiting the LNER Stadium are located in the Stacey West Stand, with a typical allocation of around 2,000.
For those that arrive early enough there is limited parking at the stadium itself. Alternatively, the South Common is open on matchdays for parking in addition to street parking.

Exit the station to your left on to St Mary’s Street, then take the left after the Church on to High Street. Go over the level crossing and after around 100m take a left on to Tentercroft Street. Continue along and over the Sincil Dike, then take an immediate right on to Kesteven Street. This will turn into Sincil Bank and after around half a mile you’ll see the stadium approaching on your left.
