Estadio Jalisco in Guadalajara, the former home of Club Deportivo Guadalajara a.k.a. Chivas. There's no parking space or any near by metro station.

Highbury was a strange case. Their owner ran down the club to limit opposition to moving well away from the club's supporters, and the deliberately chose to place them in a densely populated area.

He then ...err... "persuaded" the football league to move them from Division 2 into the top division when football resumed after WWI.

It'd be a scandal if it happened today, but it's largely forgotten now.


Two good ones for being cramped are Grimsby and Swansea's old Vetch Field.

Im surprised no one has mentioned Luton Town yet. The entrance to the away end (to the right) is through the houses behind the stand.

The stadium of my local team was originally built on the edge of town, but subsequent growth around the 1930's meant it became completely enclosed by terraced houses.



Infact the houses are so close to our stadium that Gordon Road Dissects at a weird angle, meaning one of our stands has one end taller than the other as you can see here.

Bobby Dorr

During the 1930s, Chicago Cubs groundskeeper Bobby Dorr lived in a 6 room apartment at Wrigley Field! The building still exists and is located adjacent to the LF gate.

I would've said practically every older stadium in the UK was built right in the middle of terraced housing areas.

Wouldn't be a traditional British stadium without it to be honest.

Same with the BayArena of Bayer 04 Leverkusen, which is located in the middle of the city, fortunately with a lot of trees.

our club has a lot of problems, because german laws are very strict with noise parkings and crowds, so that most teams of the Bundesliga have moved their stadias out of the city in the middle of nowhere.

I am quite happy with the culture we have kept here, going into a pub before a game and than just across the street in the terrace.

They'd have most likely been built on green field sites. The houses would have come afterwards

I thought that the 'cottage' at Craven Cottage is a part of the ground, rather than a private residence that happens to overlook the stadium? Isn't it the club house / changing rooms of the stadium or something like that?

In a similar vein, however, the old Lansdowne Road had the clubhouses of Lansdowne RFC and Wanderers RFC on either side of the old West Stand. Can't find a picture of the Lansdowne clubhouse but here are two of the Wanderers' clubhouse:

It's the changing rooms/offices, in the same tradition of cricket pavillions.

It is in a residential area, with houses just across a street from the ground, but that applies to probably around two thirds of the grounds in England.


One different one is Goodison Park. It's not so obvious now, since they re-roofed the stadium, but one corner of the ground has a church in it.

Is my memory playing tricks on me when I believe there used to be houses in the corner between stands at White Hart Lane? A recent stand at Anfield was built on the site of demolished terraced houses; a process that continues today if you look at the difference between satellite and streetview maps. Swansea's Vetch Field was remarkable for the odd angles of the surrounding roads compared to the ground. And finally, one end of Gillingham's Gordon Road stand used to be an open terrace, with various legends about the ball being kicked out of play and through the front windows of houses.
