Kenilworth Road (capacity 10,356)
Luton Town have played at Kenilworth Road since 1905, when they left their old stadium, Dunstable Road. The stadium is well known for once having a plastic pitch, which it had between 1985 and 1991. Another famous yet unusual feature of the stadium is the entrance to the away end, which is accessed through a terraced houses.
The stadium itself is looking a little tired and is in need of some redevelopment. However, lack of funding and talk of a new stadium means that little work has been done in recent years. The Main Stand is an old two tiered stand which runs two thirds of the way along the pitch, while the Executive Stand opposite used to be called the Bobbers Stand as entry cost a bob.
Away fans visiting Kenilworth Road are located in the Oak Road Stand, with a typical allocation of around 1,500.
