The ABAX Stadium
Officially the ABAX Stadium, but traditionally London Road, originally opened in 1913 however, how it looks now does not bear any resemblance to how it did over a century ago. The ground has seen seven periods of redevelopment during it’s lifetime.
The ABAX Stadium has a capacity of 15,314 - with a record attendance of 14,110.
City supporters will be seated in the ‘Lower B’ section of the Main North Stand.

Disabled fans will pay the age related amounts from this list. They will be entitled to a free carer if in receipt of DLA or PIP. Headsets for visually impaired fans are provided from Peterborough's reception.
