Appalling for away supporters
Oct 2021
I previously reviewed the stadium having taken one of the diming packages. That protects you from the awful experience it is for away supporters. There are two places - the open end behind the goal, seats on scaffolding with no cover, and a small seated covered area adjacent to it along the touchline. There's a good view from the seats albeit low. The stewards were fine.

How a professional football ground cannot provide cover now for away supporters is beyond me. Those on the terrace simply get soaked, as this day did nothing but pour. All food and drink is ia a courtyard behind the scaffolding, Toilets are essentially portacabins, queue in the rain for the drink and food then stand there to drink it if you wish. This is 2021 not 1921, and the team are in League 1 offering non league facilities to the away support. That is probably unfair on many non league grounds.

Surely a football league grant would be available if the club itself cannot afford four posts and a plastic roof?

Came here to watch a cup game with my mother, father, brother, sister and uncle. Gills lost 5-4 on penalties, but it was a very exciting game. Easy to book tickets and to get into and navigate the stadium. Seats comfy with a good view of the pitch. Wanted a hot dog at half time but they weren't doing them, which was a little disappointing, although that may have been a blessing...
All a bit grotty but that's all part of the experience!

Pretty standard football club with an standard of all different fans with all different characters. The drinks, where top quality a tad bit over price may need to lower the price a tad. The food was nice but fell like it needs to have more on to be value for money for that price. The atmosphere was excellent.

The stadium was clean had good seating options and staff were helpful but they ran out of all hot drinks at half time .... this is pretty basic stuff and really shouldn’t happen especially in these cold months

What a great day! We started with a drink in The Factory which is a great bar with a wide choice of drinks. The hospitality of being in the Boardroom was fantastic, the food was delicious and the staff friendly and welcoming. I'd definitely go back.

A Traditional Ground In A Traditional Setting
Jan 2020
Rather like the Portsmouth ground, the Gillingham stadium is set amongst a traditional housing area rather than on an out of town modern shopping estate and therefore retains plenty of character. I was seated in a small section at the end of one of the main stands, but the majority of the away supporters were limited to an area at the back of an open stand, some distance from the pitch, thereby I guess, reducing the atmosphere for the away team. Stewarding was friendly and efficient although I was directed to the wrong area initially.

Decent Atmosphere But Awful Away Stand...
Jan 2020 • Friends
While it’s an old school ground which is something I miss terribly, the “temporary” away stand is pretty awful. I’m amazed it passes safety control if I’m honest, if you had to exit sharpish you’d struggle along those narrow passageways.

Good atmosphere for our cup match though, I don’t suppose they get to play Premiership teams too often and their fans were up for it.
