    I believe they've got a new (ish) ground.

    Would I be right in thinking it's one of those shit, lego type out of town places with zero pubs anywhere near?

        It’s a great day out on the booze the whole place is a haven for real ale fans. The ground is in the town 1.5 miles from the centre.
        In the centre.
        Real ale pubs are the Rutland , the market , white swan, spa lane Royal Oak chesterfield arms and more.mostly on the camra guide.

        There is plenty of free car parking near the ground on side streets. I think pottery lane is free to park.
        On sheffield road in the Whittington moor area near the stadium are, the beer parlour. The Derby tup (camra pub) travellers rest, red lion and Victoria club. They are all 5minutes walk from the ground, inside the stadium a friend tells me a local brewery has a stand selling a barrel of local ale.
        I’ve been told it’s a bit of a day out with a football match in the middle.

          You sure about that? From the Derbyshire Times, October 2016...

          Chesterfield CEO Chris Turner used his programme notes on Saturday to warn that people might be ‘surprised and alarmed’ by the club’s annual accounts – and he was right. And the reaction of Spireites supporters on social media to last night’s news that the club had posted a profit of £42k after recouping £2million in transfer fees was largely as Mr Turner predicted.

          Many fans expressed dismay at the fact that without player sales, the club would have posted a significant loss for the financial year. Company secretary Ashley Carson admitted disappointment with elements of the club’s financial performance but is hopeful of a better 2016/17 period. The news has prompted talk of protests among supporters on an online message board.Mark Jones tweeted: “Misprint surely. Got to be £420k, they missed off a zero.”Dave Garratt added: “Crikey! That’s after selling the whole squad. Administration within the next couple of years I think.”Mark Hill simply tweeted: “What a shambles.”

                    Correct on all counts.

                    We ve not played there before. It s 20 - 30 mins out of town, next to a tesco extra. Make sure you are in the right queue.

                    Not sure about pubs nearby. A few pubs in town centre nog too far from station.

                      It is one of the shit lego type stadiums and it's about a mile and a half out of the town centre. Sounds like the pub situation might be better than most of those types though:

                      http://www.footballgroundguide.com/leagues/proact-stadium-chesterfield.html#apubs-for-away-fans

                      "Just across Sheffield Road from the Proact Stadium is the Spireite Pub. This pub has been recently refurbished and has up to six real ales on tap. It welcomes both home and way supporters. Further up Sheffield Road (a five minute walk, passing a handy Chinese/Fish & Chip shop on the way) is the Derby Tup. This pub normally has ten real ales available. Although the pub does not sell food, the landlord allows customers to bring in food from outside. Further on up Sheffield Road on the right is the well placed North Sea Fish and Chip shop, which was doing a brisk trade on my last visit. Whilst up on the left is the Red Lion pub, which is serves beers from the Old Mill Brewery and shows Sky Sports."

                        See below - good news in bold, bad news in italics.


                        WHAT IS IT LIKE FOR VISITING FANS? 



                        Away supporters are normally housed in the Rubicon Print Stand at the north end of the stadium, where up to 2,112 supporters can be seated. If demand requires it then additional seating can also be made available in the Spencers Solicitors Community Stand. Conversely if your team has a small following then only part of the East Stand is allocated and not the North end. Unlike most new stadiums the fans are housed pretty close to the pitch, ensuring good views of the playing action. The leg room is good too. The concourses are built to a high standard, with large flat screen televisions (showing Sky Sports, plus the game going on inside with commentary) to keep the fans entertained. Food on offer from the concourse includes the locally produced Jacksons Pies. The Peppered Steak and Brampton Ale Pie (£3) sounds particularly mouth watering! There are also Large Steak & Mushy Peas Pies (£3.50), Sausage Rolls (£3), Cheeseburgers (£3.20), Burgers (£3), Rollover Hot Dogs (£3) and Chicken Burgers (£3.20). Plus for the vegetarians Mexican Chilli Bean Pies (£3). Pleasingly, the refreshment areas stay open throughout the match (although no alcohol is allowed to be served after 9pm for evening games).

                        The roof of the away end is quite low, which ensures that a relatively small number of away supporters can really make some noise. I noted that the stewards allowed standing at the back of the stand but not at the front. When one away fan queried with one of the staff as to why this was, whilst pointing at some Chesterfield fans standing at the front of one of their stands, he was met with the response; 'That's football' with a shrug of the shoulders. In effort to further boost the atmosphere there is a drummer in the home end and on my visit a drum was also allowed into the away stand. If Chesterfield score then the tune 'Tom Hark' echoes around the stadium.

                        Please note that cash is not accepted at the turnstiles, entrance is by ticket only. Away fans can purchase their tickets from the small portakabin located outside the Rubicon Print (North) Stand.





                        PUBS FOR AWAY FANS 



                        Just across Sheffield Road from the Proact Stadium is the Spireite Pub. This pub has been recently refurbished and has up to six real ales on tap. It welcomes both home and way supporters. Further up Sheffield Road (a five minute walk, passing a handy Chinese/Fish & Chip shop on the way) is the Derby Tup. This pub normally has ten real ales available. Although the pub does not sell food, the landlord allows customers to bring in food from outside. Further on up Sheffield Road on the right is the well placed North Sea Fish and Chip shop, which was doing a brisk trade on my last visit. Whilst up on the left is the Red Lion pub, which is serves beers from the Old Mill Brewery and shows Sky Sports.

                        Other pubs located near to the stadium such as the Stonegravels, do not admit away fans. Whilst the nearby Donkey Derby Pub which also offers food, is very busy on matchdays and is predominantly for home supporters.

                        Whilst in the centre of town is the Rutland Arms, which is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. As Sarah Greenan explains; 'A pub I would recommend for away supporters is the Rutland Arms on Stephenson Place in Chesterfield. If you arrive by train and walk towards the town centre it's just upon on your left - the pub is next to the huge church with the Crooked Spire - you can't miss it! The Rutland is a very old pub and in recent years has operated as a traditional ale house with a huge range of well-kept real ales and good food as well. It welcomes home and away supporters and is a pleasure to visit. In warm weather customers spill out into the adjcent churchyard'. On St Marys Gate is a Wetherspoons outlet called the Spa Lane Vaults. If walking up to the stadium from Chesterfield Railway Station and you like good ale, then you may wish to make a small detour to the Chesterfield Arms. The pub which is situated on Newbold Road, is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide and has normally ten ales and six ciders available.

                        Otherwise alcohol is served inside the ground in the form of; draught Carling (£3.60), Worthington (£3.50), Magners Cider (£3.60) plus bottles of Budweiser (£3.60), Wine (£3.60), Jack Daniels and Coke (£3.60), Smirnoff and Coke (£3.60) and cans of Guinness (£3.60). The latter are first placed on a vibrating platform to give the stout a head.

                              Urgh, those stadiums are awful.

                              It could be Colchester's, Shrewsbury's or anyone's.

                              And it's probably exactly what we would have ended up with from Mike Watson-Challis or Jayten.

                                    Having lived in the area for 9 years. This isn't an out if town development as such.

                                    The ground is next to Tescos just off the dual carriageway to Sheffield. If taking train then town is 5 minutes on left. Ground 10 minutes on right.

                                    Tescos will monitor parking. However there is a Sainsbury's the other side of round about which is 10 minute walk.

                                    I won't give my parking spot away.

                                        DIRECTIONS AND CAR PARKING 



                                        Leave the M1 at Junction 29 and take the A617 towards Chesterfield. At the end of the dual carriageway at the edge of the town centre, turn right onto the A61 towards Sheffield. At the first roundabout turn left and the stadium is down on the right. For the main entrance turn right into Sheffield Road and then right again into the Club car park. However the club car park is for permit holders only. There is nearby street parking available on side roads off the Sheffield road, if you arrive early enough. Don't think about parking in the nearby Tesco store, as the car park is patrolled on matchdays and you may end up having your car towed away.

                                          WSC did a feature on a Chesterfield game recently.

                                          They said that the club had at least tried to give the new ground some character. There is a memorial garden for lost fans and players for instance.

                                          Unfortunately, Chesterfield's big tourist attraction of 2017, the Diana tribute, is now presumably withered away....(insert tasteless remark of your own choice!)

                                            Mate of mine works for the club and they do a lot of good stuff in the Community there.

                                            Wonder if the man with 2 names Martin King will be there working the room tomorrow?
