Rodney Parade

Rodney Road


NP19 0UU


Originally founded in 1912, Newport County reformed in 1989 after going out of business following relegation from the Football League.

The team moved into their home - Rodney Parade - in 2012 and share the stadium with Newport RFC and Dragons RFC. 

The second-oldest football stadium in the country, the ground is a mix of seating and terraced stands, with the Bisley Stand being an all-seater, covered, single-tier stand, where the away fans are located.


There is no parking at the stadium itself, so fans are encouraged to park at the local shopping centre. 

The Kingsway Shopping Centre is just a five-minute walk from the ground and costs £2 for five hours' parking.

Newport High Street is also a five-minute walk across the bridge to Rodney Parade, and costs £5 to park on.


To drink:

There is a Clubhouse situated inside the ground, which admits away supporters. 

Inside the away concourse, there is a FanZone facility that contains a bar serving a variety of draught beers.

The nearest pub is the Victoria Hotel on Corporation Road, but the most popular amongst away fans is the Excelsior Club, which shows televised sports.

There is a Wetherspoons on Chepstow Road called the Godfrey Morgan. The spacious pub is only a 10-minute walk from the away turnstiles.

Newport City Centre has a variety of pubs, including three more Wetherspoons outlets. The Queen’s Hotel in Bridge Street is located close to the railway station.

To eat:

On Chepstow Road, there are a number of foot outlets including fish and chip shops and a Greggs Bakery.

Furthermore, the city centre is a 15-minute walk away, and has a variety of popular fast-food chains for you to enjoy.

The away stand also has a burger van situated just inside the entrance.


By eat:

Take Junction 25A from the M4, and take the first exit off the roundabout onto Heidenheim Way.

Take the first exit off Flyover and take the second exit off the next roundabout.

Continue onto Chepstow Road and take first right onto Cedar Road and then the next right onto Corporation Road.

Take the first left onto Grafton Road, and Rodney Parade will appear on your left.

By train:

The nearest train station to Rodney Parade is Newport, which is a 10-minute walk.

Leave the train station via the exit at Platform 1.

Cross the road and turn left. It will eventually curve left and this will bring you out near the Market Arcade.

Turn left and follow the road to the end - where you will find a staircase.

Go down and head through the underpass, which will bring you out at Clarance Street Bridge, where Rodney Parade will appear.


The club would like to remind supporters the possession or use of pyrotechnics inside a football ground is strictly prohibited. Those found to be carrying or using pyrotechnics will face a long-term ban.

We would like to remind supporters it is a criminal offence to enter the pitch at any time. Anyone who does so without permission can expect to face prosecution.

The club recently outlined its stance on pyrotechnics following an incident during this season's trip to Mansfield Town, in a statement. This can be read HERE

Supporters are also reminded to remain courteous when inside the stadium, with regards to foul and abusive language. If you do hear anything offensive while inside the stadium, please report it to your nearest steward. 


Travelling City supporters can expect a gentle breeze in South Wales, but should prepare for high chance of rain. The snowy conditions in Bradford have not been experienced in South Wales.
