What's Liberty Way Like?
In 2007 Nuneaton Borough moved to the then called Liberty Way stadium, after spending 90 years at their former Manor Park home. The Club went into liquidation in 2008 and were subsequently reformed as Nuneaton Town. The stadium itself although new, is largely open and is rather bland in appearance. Three sides of the stadium are comprised of terracing, whilst the remaining side houses a small UK Flooring Direct Main Stand. This Main Stand was opened for the 2010/11 season. It is covered and all seated and houses 514 supporters. It runs for around a quarter of the length of the pitch and has a floodlight pylon to either side. Oddly this stand does not sit astride the half way line, but on one side towards the Loans 2 Go Stand at one end. This side also houses the team dugouts and towards the Britannia Tyres Stand has a couple of small structures that house a Directors/Corporate hospitality area. Opposite is a open terrace, which has the Rugby Clubhouse situated at the back of it. This terrace is split into separate compartments and has four floodlight pylons situated in front of it. At one end is the Britannia Tyres Stand a covered terrace, which is the home end of the ground. This stand can hold up to 1,800 fans and unusually the terracing is comprised not of concrete steps, but metal ones instead. At the opposite  end, is the Loans 2 Go Stand which is a similar looking covered terrace, but is smaller in size. In one corner of the stadium in-between the Loans 2 Go Stand and South Terrace is a Security Control Box which has a clock mounted next to it. The ground is shared with Nuneaton Rugby Club.

Future Developments

The Club have outlined plans to double the size of the existing Main Stand, by adding a further 500 seats.

What Is It Like For Visiting Supporters?

Away supporters are mostly housed in the Loans 2 Go Stand at one end of the ground. This covered terrace can house up to 1,000 fans and normally a good amount of noise can be generated from this area. In addition around 50 seats are made available in the Main Stand. If ticketing is not available then these are accessed by first paying to go into the terrace and then paying an additional 2 transfer fee to enter the seating area. Refreshments are provided in-house by the Club and include the usual fayre of Beef Burgers (3), Hot Dogs (3), Pies (3), Bacon Baps (3.50) and Chips (2). If you are really hungry you can go for a Bacon Double Cheeseburger (5.50) with Chips and Curry Sauce (2.50). A visit to Nuneaton is normally a relaxed day out.

Where To Drink?

Although the Football Club does have a Supporters Bar, this is only available to away fans when games are not segregated as the bar is located inside the stadium. However the Rugby Club has its own Clubhouse which can be accessed from the Liberty Way car park and welcomes away fans. 

The nearest pubs are the Crows Nest and the Acorn which are both about a ten minute walk away. The Crows Nest, which if coming from the M6 you will pass on your right, has Sky Sports television and also serves food. The Acorn also offers food. To find these pubs then at the entrance to the industrial estate (with it and the stadium behind you) then turn right at the roundabout and the Crows Nest is down on the left, whilst for the Acorn turn left at the roundabout and it is down on the left.

If you are arriving at Nuneaton Railway Station then more or less opposite the station entrance is the Crown pub. This pub is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide and normally has 10 ales on tap. Otherwise in the nearby town centre are two Wetherspoons outlets; the 'William White' and the 'Felix Holt'.
