Stadium MK is big and pretty new (MK Dons moved in in 2007). The capacity is over 30,000 (with potential to take this up to 45,000, hence the high roof). It can feel a little empty because of its size – the Dons average gate this season is about 8,500 (this is slightly down on their League 1 gates).
However, the stadium is a really good stadium to watch football. It is very well appointed and the seats are padded!! There is loads of legroom and you can continue to watch the game from the concourse as you queue for food or drink. Facilities for supporters with disabilities are probably the best in this league. One fan’s description – ‘the seating is marvellous both for comfort and leg room, the concourses very impressive and the sight lines fantastic. The food was the standard football ground offering but at least the serving areas were plentiful and well organised; there wasn’t a bad atmosphere either from a crowd of 6,500 (though the PA system is deafening) and I can’t end without a tribute to the bogs – separate, wide entrances and exits, plenty of space, soap and hot running water – luxury! A cut above almost all of the modern football stadiums’.
Pubs in the local area are few but there are quite a number of food outlets close by. The stadium is about 4 miles from the centre of Milton Keynes.
Ticket prices are Adults £22 Over 65’s £17 Under 18’s £7.
Away fans are in the North Stand behind one of the goals and there is plenty of space. Views of the pitch are very good.
