Nantporth Stadium Location Map
|What's The Nantporth Stadium Like?|
Bangor's new stadium is located around
1.5 miles to the West of Bangor town centre. The
ground is set in pleasant sloping woodlands
alongside Holyhead Road, around about halfway
between Upper Bangor and the famous Menai Suspension
Bridge. Entering from the Georges Roundabout on
Holyhead Road the new approach road slopes downhill
with the vast Menai Straits and distant shoreline of
Anglesey dominating the horizon, with the Suspension
Bridge visible on the far left. Continuing down the
approach road there are two car parks set into the
landscape on the right hand side with a floodlit all
weather training pitch in the background. The road
leads down to the rear of the Main Stand with its
club offices and reception flanked by turnstile and

|Future Ground Developments|
|The Club has plans
to increase the seating capacity to meet future UEFA
requirements, with 300 additional seats likely to be
installed for the start of the 2012-2013 season. This
will be in the form of additional pre-fabricated
seated stands on the Menai Straits side of the
at some stage the Club may extend the Main Stand by
adding a further 200 seats on each side and extending
the roof to cover them.
Barry Jones informs me; 'Planning applications have been submitted to add covered terraces behind both goals. With a larger one to be constructed behind the Menai End. This is to be named the Citizens Terrace, due to the fact that the supporters association is raising a large sum of money to help pay for it.'
|Visiting supporters have been
allocated the City End which is a shallow open
concrete terrace behind the goal. It is not known at
this stage if part of the prefabricated seated stand
on the Menai Straits side nearest to the away end
will also be allocated to away fans.
For visiting supporters
walking down to the stadium, then please note that the
away turnstile entrance is on the near right corner of
|Where To Drink?|
There is a club house at
the stadium that welcomes away fans. Otherwise
there are no pubs, or eating establishments in the
immediate vicinity of the ground. The nearest pub
is the Antelope Inn, situated next to the Menai
Bridge Suspension Bridge. This is around a ten
minute walk from the stadium along Holyhead Road,
heading further away from the town centre. If
arriving by train, then there are plenty of the
pubs in the town centre, which is around a 20
minute walk away. On the High Street is a
Wetherspoons outlet called the Black Bull Inn as
well as the Fat Cat Cafe Bar, which is listed in
the CAMRA Good Beer Guide.
|How To Get There And Where To Park|
|From The East:
Take the A55 towards Holyhead. Exit at Junction 9 just before the Britannia Bridge, and follow signposts for A487/A5 towards Bangor Town. Continue along the A487 and on reaching the roundabout with the Antelope Inn and the Menai Bridge on the left, continue straight on along the A5 towards Bangor. This road becomes Holyhead Road and after passing the University Of Wales Campus, you will reach the stadium entrance at the Georges Roundabout on your left.
From The West:
Take the A55 from Holyhead over Britannia Bridge, then exit at Junction 9 and follow signposts for A5 towards Bangor. Then as East above.
There are two small car parks behind the Main Stand, which hold around 150 cars between them. It is unclear at the moment whether the nearby college will also offer parking on matchdays.
