SIXFIELDS STADIUM…
The club moved to Sixfields Stadium in October 1994. Located on the outskirts of Northampton, the stadium has three small covered single tier stands and another larger single tier with a capacity of around 4,000 on one side of the pitch.

The away fans are situated in the South stand, with the club receiving awards for the facilities provided for supporters. There is space for 1,250 visiting fans.

On one side of the pitch is the new East Stand, which opened in March 2016, when they were granted with a safety certificate. This took the capacity up to 7,798.
