PUBS AND GRUB…
If it’s a pub that you’re after, then Doctor Browns isn’t far from the stadium. It has a friendly atmosphere and serves both food and drink with Sky TV on show as well.
The pub is on Corporation Road and it is only a 13-minute walk to the stadium. Around this bar, there is an array of fast-food restaurants, restaurant chains and if it’s a café that you’re after then Mason’s café comes highly-rated.
The café serves sandwiches, hot drinks and is a 13-minute walk from the stadium. Food and drinks are also available inside the ground with Sky Sports provided as well.
WHAT TO EXPECT…
The Riverside Stadium has a current capacity to host 34,000 people and was only opened in 1995, making it a fairly modern stadium.
The four stands are often referred to as North, East, West and South and the corners have been called the North-East, North-West, South-East and South-West corners.
Away supporters will now find themselves in one side of the East Stand. The turnstiles are electric and so you have to place your ticket into a reader to gain entry.
If you look over to the South Stand then you will probably see the ‘Red Faction’ who aim to sing throughout the whole game and include a drummer, colourful flags and banners.
