What's the ground like?

<p>Broadhurst Park is the UK&#39;s newest football ground and the first new ground to be built and funded by a supporter-owned football club.</p> <p>Covered on all sides, with standing and seating in the main stand and with a large and expansive home standing area behind the goal, FC United&#39;s purpose-built 4,400 capacity new ground shows what can be achieved when football fans with a vision work together and make things happen.</p> <p>FC United&#39;s members were involved at every stage during the design and construction process and the result is a stadium and community facility that is the envy of many clubs in higher leagues. Described by FC Business magazine as the best new non-league ground in the country, Broadhurst Park is also set to be one of the greenest.</p> <p>FC United is looking to create the first pollinator-friendly football stadium in the UK after supporters won a &pound;4,000 Grow Wild community project award to develop a landscaping project at the ground.</p> <p>As a community facility, Broadhurst Park will be used every day by local people and will host a range of sporting and recreational activities. A well-appointed function room and meeting spaces are also available for the local community, businesses and other organisations to hire.</p> <p>Funding for the &pound;6.3m facility has come from a variety of sources. FC United fans have raised &pound;2 million from a pioneering Community Share Scheme and close to a further &pound;1 million from other fundraising. Grant funding has also been provided from Sport England (Iconic Facilities Fund), the Football Foundation (FSIF), Football Foundation (Community Facilities Fund), Manchester City Council, Social Investment Business (My Community Rights), Manchester College and Viridor. <img alt="Broadhurst Park Plan" src="/files/images/pix_icons/bp_plan_v3.png" title="Broadhurst Park Plan" /></p>
