Racecourse Ground (capacity 10,771)
The Racecourse Ground has been home to Wrexham since 1864, and is still the world’s oldest international football stadium that still hosts games, having held Wales’ first home game in 1877. The stadium has hosted more Wales games than any other.
The media spotlight is now well and truly on Wrexham, with Hollywood millionaire owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney taking over the club in 2021 and overseeing the return to the football league in 2023. The stadium itself is a classic stadium, though the Macron Stand is very modern looking. The Kop is to have major redevelopment work done in time for the 2024/25 season.
Away fans are housed on one side of the Wrexham Lager stand, with a typical allocation of 1,500.
For those arriving a couple of hours before kick off, it is possible to get street parking near the Racecourse Ground by The Turf pub. In addition there are a few matchday car parks at reasonable prices.
