Description: Alexandra Stadium
Among fans it’s known as Gresty Road due to the habit of calling stadiums by the name of the streets they were located on. Officially, though, it’s Alexandra Stadium. It exists since 1906, but obviously has not much to do with the stands from the past.
Especially that due to revamps taking place since 1990’s it obtained a unique shape. Almost 7,000 out of the total 10,000 seats are located in just one stand, leaving pretty much a thousand for each of the three remaining parts of the stadium. Such a disproportion is not something one sees too often…

He’s neither an away-going supporter, nor a groundhopper. It’s also not a sports discipline, what he’s doing. Steven simply decided to visit 116 venues in England and Wales using his bike, scoot and feet. This is how Football Ground Tour was born.
