|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.
The Club have outlined plans to double the size of the existing Main Stand, by adding a further 500 seats.
Towards The Loans 2 Go Stand
|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
|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'.

railway station is approximately 2 miles from the ground
and it will take around 35-40 minutes to walk. The
station is served by trains from Birmingham New Street,
Manchester Piccadilly and London Euston. Normally there
are taxis available from either outside Nuneaton station
or from the taxi rank at the bus station in the town
centre, which is a five minute walk away.
Leave the station and turn left along Regent Street and where the road forks keep to the right. At the traffic lights at the bottom turn left into Vicarage Street (A444 sign posted Attleborough/Bulkington). Keep going along this road passing a Police Station on your left. At the next roundabout with a Church on one corner turn left onto Church Street (B4114 towards Attleborough). Proceed along Church Street passing a park on your right and then going under a railway bridge. Go straight on at the mini roundabout into Attleborough Road, passing the Rugger Tavern on your right and then the Attleborough Arms on your left as the road becomes Highfield Road. At the next roundabout take the first exit onto the A4254 towards Hinckley (also signposted Attleborough Fields Industrial Estate). You will next pass the Crows Nest pub on your right and at the next roundabout take the first exit into Townsend Drive, the entrance to Liberty Way is a short distance down on the right.
