Description: Moor Lane

The ground lies 4km north of Manchester city center but belongs to a different city. Moor Lane owes its name to the road running along its northern side. The main stand currently lies in the south, though, along Nevile Road, along with makeshift player facilities.

Interestingly, the stand and its roof (raised in 1980) are built with reinforced concrete, a rare material in the United Kingdom, where most stadia have stands built primarily with steel. Since 1989 the stadium also offers floodlighting, though only for match purposes, not enough for TV broadcast.

Majority of the 2,000 people able to use the ground are placed in the uncovered grassed terracing rather than under cover. With attendances reaching limits after takeover in 2014, a brand new stadium is planned in the same location, with over 5,000 covered capacity.
