Here’s a page about our beloved home - The Borough Sports Ground in Gander Green Lane. On this page you’ll find information about the ground and a selection of links that will be useful for away supporters or those U’s fans planning an away trip.
The Borough Sports Ground,
Gander Green Lane,
Sutton, Surrey, SM1 2EY.
Sutton United play their home games at The Borough Sports Ground although fans more commonly refer to the ground as Gander Green Lane, the road in which it resides. The ground has a capacity of 5,013. In 1970, before ground and safety improvements, 14,000 spectators crammed into the ground for The U’s FA Cup Fourth Round Match against Leeds United. The main stand, pictured below during 2013/14's pre-season friendly with Chelsea, has 765 seats.
See aerial photographs of the ground and surrounding area at multimap.com or streetmap.co.uk.
The ground houses a number of facilities including the clubhouse, which is open everyday, and five function rooms, the largest of which, the MBA Lounge, seats 180 and has a dance floor and stage. All these rooms are available for hire by contacting the club on 020 8644 4440.
This season, admission prices are £15 for adults, £8 for O.A.Ps and students and £3 for under 16s. Transfer to the stand is an additional £2. Programmes are £3. The club shop is open on every home match day and stocks a large variety of souvenirs including replica kits, metal badges and programmes. The ground has two Tea Bars, one at the end of the Main Stand and Rose’s Tea Hut, which is located on the Collingwood Rec. side of the ground.
