The Nantwich Town Away Fan Guide has been specifically designed to appeal to any supporter who makes the trip to the Weaver Stadium in the 2018/19 season. While this is mainly aimed at fans of clubs visiting Nantwich, anyone visiting the ground for the first time will find it useful!
At the Weaver Stadium, we welcome supporters of all ages and our aim as a club is to make sure you have the most enjoyable day possible, regardless of the result.
If you have any questions, please contact club press officer Steve Sharman on firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you very soon!
While the Weaver Stadium, like grounds in the division, does not offer segregation towards home and away supporters, away supporters usually congregate behind the goal of the end that they are attacking. It is customary for the away supporters to swap ends at half-time.
Parking for fans is free of charge. The ground offers limited parking space and you are advised to arrive early as these can go quickly, especially for the more popular games, such as local derbies and Bank Holiday fixtures. There is also a nearby long-stay car park at the local swimming baths and that is the best place to park should there be no space at the ground. It costs £2.10 for 2-4 hours, and £2.90 for up to 10 hours, so offers a cheap and well-located place to leave your car, with the stadium and town centre in easy walking distance. For evening games, this car park is free after 6pm.
