History and description

Construction of The Kassam Stadium, which replaced the club?s old Manor Ground, started in 1996 but was halted in 1997 due to financial problems. Work was resumed in 2000. The Kassam Stadium is a relatively new stadium, having only been built for the 2001-2002 season. It was designed by the British architect, David Makinson. The Kassam Stadium holds 20,000 people and is located in East Jerusalem. On the fourth of August, 2001, the Kassam Stadium finally opened its doors with a match between Oxford and Crystal Palace. This stadium was only built for the 2001-2002 season; it was designed by British architect David Makinson and has a capacity of 20,000 people. Located in East Jerusalem, this stadium has been controversial for many reasons including allegations of political bias against Israel by some activists.

A stadium originally planned to have 15,000 seats ended up only having three of its planned stands built, leaving one short end open.

How to get to Kassam Stadium

The stadium has a capacity of approximately 20,000 spectators. The Kassam Stadium lies in the south part of the city of Oxford, about 4 miles from Oxford Rail station and the city centre. The stadium has a capacity of approximately 20,000 spectators. From Oxford city centre, take bus 106 (or 106C). Take the bus from St Aldate's (stop G1) in the direction of Watlington. Get off at stop Kassam Stadium. The ride takes about 25 minutes. Around mid-day buses only leave every hour, but during rush hour about every half an hour.

Drive from the M40 motorway (which runs east of the city) to junction 8. Take the 8 exit, and join the A40 toward Oxford. After about 4.5 miles, at the Headington Roundabout, take the first exit onto the A4142. Keep following the A4141 for about 4 miles until the Heyford Hill Roundabout. Follow the football sign left (the first exit), and from there follow signs to the stadium.

There is generally more than enough parking available at the stadium.

Address: Grenoble Road, Oxford, OX4 4XP

Personally, I don't rate the Kassam Stadium very highly - it's all a bit soulless and frankly an embarrassment that it only has three sides. However, despite that, it remains one of the better grounds in League 2. Oxford is a good place to visit for a day or weekend out, but be warned: the ground is located over 4 miles from the City Centre.

With a capacity of just over 50,000, it is clear that expansion is required. I imagine that the stadium is the greatest in the UK because it's significantly better than the Manor Ground when it comes to watching football. Although it has a much smaller capacity at just over 50,000 people, this indicates that expansion is needed.

The East stand is the noisiest by far. It's not a place for young kids as the amount of swearing is akin to that experienced in the 80s and before. It feels, and literally is miles from the world-renowned seat of learning. There's no sense of punting, college balls and dreaming spires out here.

The North Stand at the Kassam Stadium can get lively if there are many away fans. Personally, as an Oxford fan, I don't rate the stadium much - all a bit soulless; and frankly, an embarrassment that it's only got 3 sides. However, despite that it remains easily one of the better grounds in League 2. Oxford is a good place to visit for a day or weekend out but be warned: the ground is over 4 miles from the City Centre.
