Mennaye Field is the venue for our trip to Cornwall this Saturday (kick-off 1pm) and in the spirit of #WednesdayWisdom here is everything you need to know about the ground.
The capacity at Mennaye Field is 4000, with 2,200 seats available. Some of these seats are covered in the Truro Penwith College Stand and the Jewson Stand, however many of them are open air seats so don’t forget your rain jacket!
The Penzance end is where the open air seats are predominantly situated and apart from one open air seating area, the Nerwyn end is home to the two terraces named the ‘Naughty Boys Terrace’ and ‘The Cornishmen Covered Terrace.’
Ground tickets will allow access to all uncovered seating and all standing areas of the ground.
Catering and refreshments
A modern, spacious marquee provides a large bar offering a variety of refreshments with efficient service a priority. Catering outlets run by Cornish businesses sourcing local food offer a new eating experience both for formal hospitality guests and fans at pitch side.
No glass or bottles can be brought into the ground, the stands are also a no smoking area.
The main entry gate car park just off Alexandra Road provides limited parking only, but it can accommodate a number of disabled badge holders for a charge of £3.
Isles of Scilly Car Park, £3
