The Swansway Stadium was opened in 2007 at a cost of £4m. It replaced the club’s old stadium, Jackson Avenue, and has been the club’s home since.

The first match at the Swansway Stadium took place on 7 August 2007, a friendly against League One side Port Vale that ended 6–3 to the League side. Port Vale’s Ross Davidson scored the first goal at the ground after three minutes; Glyn Blackhurst became the first Nantwich Town player to score. The ground was officially opened before Nantwich’s match on 10 October 2007 by Sir Trevor Brooking. Moving to the new stadium coupled with success on the pitch helped increase Nantwich’s attendances from an average of 118 in 2005–06 to averaging 664 in 2008–09
