What's Field Mill Like?
During the late 1990's and into the early part of this decade, Field Mill was largely transformed into a modern stadium, with the building of three new stands. Both ends, the North Stand & Quarry Lane End plus the Ian Greaves Stand on one side of the pitch were re-developed. The ends are almost identical single tiered stands, each accommodating just under 2,000 supporters. The last addition to the ground was the West Stand, which was opened in February 2001. This is a cantilevered two tiered stand, with a capacity of 5,500. In 2010 this stand was renamed the Ian Greaves Stand, after a former manager of the club. On the other side of the ground is the rather small Bishop Street Stand, a covered seated stand that only runs half the length of the pitch. This now looks rather dowdy alongside its new shiny neighbours and due to safety concerns, it has been closed for some time. It has boards placed in front of it to prevent access to the stand, which gives the impression that it is a building site, which does little to enhance the overall feel of the ground. Adam Hodson adds; 'I did notice that there was a sizeable hole in the roof of the Ian Bishop Stand. Unfortunately, the ball didn't go down the hole during the game!' The team dugouts are located in front of this stand.

In April 2012, Field Mill was renamed the 'One Call Stadium' in a corporate sponsorship deal.

Future Developments
There are plans to re-develop the small remaining Bishop Street Stand, with a new 2,800 all seated stand, but as yet no formal time scales have been announced as to when this is likely to take place.

What Is It Like For Away Supporters?
Away fans are housed in the North Stand, which is unpopular with a number of home fans, as the North End of the ground has been the traditional home end for many years. As you would expect from a relatively new stand the views of the playing action and facilities are pretty good. Around 1,800 supporters can be accommodated.  I had a fairly uneventful trip to Mansfield and did not encounter any problems. It seemed to be a friendly place that was quite relaxed. However Alistair Wright a visiting Bristol City supporter adds; 'I found the standard of stewarding at Field Mill to be particularly poor and at times they seemed almost hostile towards the away support'.
 
Rob Ferguson adds' for those away fans arriving by coach, please note that buses should drop off at Portland Street and pick up at Portland Street at the end of the match.'

Where To Drink?
There is a bar at the ground called the Sandy Pate (underneath the Ian Greaves Stand), which welcomes away fans and is free to enter. However, as you would expect it gets quite busy on matchdays. Pete Smith recommends 'The Talbot' on the Nottingham Road (A60) near to the Sainsburys Supermarket. This pub which also serves food, has big screens showing televised football and is about a ten minute walk away from the ground (just go along the Nottingham Road in the opposite direction to the town centre). Jeff Beastall adds; 'Opposite the Talbot is the 'Il Rosso' is an upmarket wine bar and a little on the pricey side, albeit with a good selection of beers and lagers and Big Screen TV. It is popular with visiting fans'.

Chris Patrick recommends; 'The Sir John Cockle pub is on the A38 going into Mansfield from the M1 and again serves good food'. Whilst Gordon Cleugh adds; 'About a quarter of a mile past the John Cockle on the A38 there is The Bold Forester which has about 10 real ales and also serves good value food' and is  listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide.

Whilst Terry Gospel, advises that away fans should avoid the Victoria Hotel and Red Lion Pubs. Generally it advised to also steer clear of pubs in the town centre. However there is a Wetherspoons outlet called the Court House, situated in Market Place, which is also listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide.

How To Get There By Car & Where To Park
From The North:
Leave the  M1 at Junction 29, take A617 to Mansfield . After 6 miles turn right into Rosemary Street. Follow road for 1 mile and turn right into Quarry Lane.

From The South:
Leave the M1 at Junction 28, take A38 to Mansfield and after 6.5 miles turn right at the crossroads into Belvedere St, then turn right into Quarry Lane.

There is no parking for supporters at the ground itself, but there is a nearby private car park which charges £5. Otherwise it is a case of finding some street parking. Malcolm Dawson a visiting Sunderland supporter adds; 'I parked in the retail park (PC World, Currys, B&Q) behind the North Stand. I assumed that there would be unlimited free parking, but when I got back after the match I had a parking ticket for £50. Be warned!'

By Train
The ground can be seen from Mansfield railway station which is no more than ten minutes walk away. The station is on a local line and is served with trains from Nottingham. To get to the ground from the station; Leave the station and turn left along the dual carriageway, (away from the town centre), you should see a retail park on the right. Go straight ahead at the first set of traffic lights, along Portland Street and then right at the next lights and into Quarry Lane. The ground is a short distance down this road on the right hand side.

Martin Monk adds; 'for away fans using the trains take note that for mid-week matches the last train leaves from Mansfield - Nottingham at 9.45 PM and the last train leaves from Mansfield - Worksop at 9.38 PM, please check with your train operators as both of these times fall before a 7.45 KO match finishes. Away fans have been known to have been left stranded in Mansfield, and have struggled to get home'.

** Mansfield Town took over the Field Mill ground in 1919. The ground had previously been used for football since 1861 by various teams and is the second oldest football ground in continual use after Sandy Lane in Sheffield, which is older by a few months.
