Newport Stadium is a football and athletics stadium in Newport. It is currently the home of Newport County A.F.C., Llanwern F.C. and Newport Harriers Athletic Club. Albion Rovers F.C. had also previously called it home.
The Stadium, which is owned and managed by Newport City Council, has been upgraded to Nationwide Conference standard in recent years and has a crowd capacity of 4,300. The Stadium is part of the developing City of Newport International Sports Village, which includes the Wales National Velodrome. The grandstand seats 1,100 spectators and there is large covered terrace on the opposite side of the pitch and a small-uncovered terrace behind the one goal.
The grandstand side also includes a licensed bar, that also serves hot food and features and large-screen projection TV, the club shop, a toilet block and a refreshments stall. A food stand and toilets are planned to be built over the terrace side later this year. The record attendance at the ground (without temporary stands) is 4,300 against Manchester United.
The stadium can accommodate international-standard track and field athletic events and is of Class 1 standard. The stadium floodlighting can achieve up to an average of 500 Lux.
With the Newport RFC building a new stadium scheduled for 2010, in line with the Ryder Cup coming to the Celtic Manor Resort, Newport Stadium is expected to be used by the rugby union teams that currently play at Rodney Parade.
In 2004, Newport Stadium was upgraded to Football Conference National standard. The upgrading included a new main terrace built on the old one at the Traston Road side of the ground, commonly referred to within the club as 'The Shed'. A new terrace was also built at the Spytty Road End. When Newport County played Blackpool in the 2001 FA Cup, a temporary stand was erected right behind the goal at the Spytty Road End, (at that time there was only the Grandstand and a very small terrace). When Newport County played Swansea City in the 2006 FA Cup, a temporary stand was erected behind the goal at the Cricket Ground End.
