Completely-Suzuki Stadium – stadium description

Although since the beginning in 1927 it had been officially named Victory Sports Ground, most frequently used name became Whaddon Road, along with the tradition of calling stadiums by their address. In fact, until 2009 many people were unaware of the name and only found out that it was Victory Sports Ground when naming rights deal with local company came into force. A 5-year deal changed the name to Abbey Business Stadium for 2009-2014.

The ground was a gift from local brewery back in 1927 and was inhabited by Chaltenham Town in 1932. The club remains here to this day, now having ownership and since 2010 sharing it with Gloucester City, whose venue was destroyed by flood.
