Description: Princes Park
This modest ground built on the site of what was previously a golf course was erected in 2006. Already then it was described as one of the most ‘green’ and sustainable venues in England, having earned several commendations. Its cover is made mostly of wood, covered with sedum roof blanket and solar panels that cover part of energy needs. Most installations are designed to be as efficient as possible and rainwater is recycled within the venue. Implementation of this design by Alexander Sedgley cost app. Ł7m.
There are just over 4,000 places provided for fans, of which only 642 are seated. Week-to-week tenants are Dartford FC and Millwall reserves.
England: Ticket prices breaking new records
And not the kind of records supporters would wish to see. First time ever average price for the cheapest seats in top four leagues (!) exceeded £20. That means ticket prices in England are rising at 4 times the speed of inflation – BBC Sport alarms.
England: Visiting 116 stadiums on a bike, scoot or on feet
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.
