Parking: If traveling by car we advise supporters to park using the Brook Road pay & display car park adjacent to the ground, which has plenty of parking (143 spaces & 7 disabled spaces). Use postcode WD6 5HJ. It costs £1 for 1-2 hours and £1.50 for 2-3 hours, however its free after 6pm on weekdays and at weekends. You can then access the ground via the Brook Road turnstiles at the back of the ground (next to the Boreham Wood Bowls Club)
The Stands: The capacity at Boreham Wood FC is roughly 4’500. The main East stand has seating for 500 supporters and is the ideal spot for families as it is parallel to the pitch and closest to the dug out! You will also find the Press Box and Club Official’s seats here.
Behind both goals there is ‘Standing Only’ and the ground is accessible for wheelchairs. There is also a brand new 1'200 seated stand that opened in the 2014 Summer which is opposite the main stand.
When to arrive: Our normal match times are from 2pm on Sunday afternoons or 7.45pm on Thursday evenings, however we strongly advise you check our fixtures list before traveling as matches are subject to change and kick off times can vary.
If you want to soak up the atmosphere, enjoy the warm ups and grab something to eat and drink we recommend arriving 45-60 minutes before kick-off. We regularly run pre-match festivals or other events for children so please check the latest news section on our website for up-to-date information.
Buying a programme & Merchandise: Our matchday programme is your guide to the day’s match and costs just £2 and can be purchased on the turnstile or inside the ground from a programme seller. It features messages from the Manager as well as previous match reports, exclusive interviews, general club news and even competitions!
We also have a club shop that sells many pocket money items for children, ranging from ALFC stickers (£1), bags (£1), keyrings (£3), beanie hats (£3) to signed AWFC shirts. The club shop is located in the corner of the ground, left of the main east stand.
Food & Drink: There are three places to purchase food or drinks on match days. There are two kiosks inside the ground, one behind the goal, near the Brook Road Car Park turnstile in the south stand, and other is in the opposite corner of the ground next to the new stand.
