Working most weekends, visiting to watch the County is a rarity, and after a tough few months, we (my wife and I) decided to take the hospitality option and spoil ourselves!

Booking was easy, personal touch with a club rep on site just a few days before the match who was very nice and helpful. We then arrived just after 1pm and were given a lanyard, match tickets and directed to the suite upstairs. Modern, warm and clean we were spoilt to a great view of the players warming up on the pitch (photo 1), a solid carvery (photo 2) and pricey but decent drinks (£14 for a large wine and a pint).

Everyone was genuinely helpful, approachable, and an ambassador for the club.

We were then offered our seats or a space in a box(!?). Not sure how often this comes around, but we snapped up the box (photo 3) and enjoyed what was the only dampener, a nil nil draw!

Considering tickets are a teeth clenching £24 these days for div 2 footy and hospitality/box was £60, the question of "worth it" comes down to, the £36 difference for a carvery, dessert and feeling a bit special. The answer is yes, it's worth it. The experience was great. We missed the atmosphere of the Hazell Stand, but for novelty, the warmth and feeling a bit special, I would recommend doing this once in a while for sure.

Next game, we will be back in the stands, but we will certainly also be back in hospitality one day too.

Rodney parade is in an excellent location, being only a five to ten minute walk from the station and shops. If on foot access it via the beautiful Newport footbridge. The stadium is a mix of old and new and is really a rugby ground, so has a very large “in goal” area at one end. One poor point was the very long queue for food and drink. Still RP is well worth a visit for rugby or football.

This is a small regional stadium, well-attended. Typical with outdoor grassy area, indoor there are some concessions, not a great variety. Game lasts about 2 hours.Best seats are affordable, buy ahead.

At New Years eve rugby, we were sat in the Hazel stand, dry but the image and facilities are of a dated structure.
Better here in the dry than the modern Bisley which can be exposed and wet
Loss of club House is a real shame, club must be loosing revenue before and after. Staff are friendly.

As an away fan here you are very much a second class citizen. Away entrance gate is miles from the rest of the gates and once inside you are squeezed into the end of a stand. Not a pleasant experience.

Rodney Parade is not a ground for the football purist. I watched County play league leaders Doncaster Rovers on a cold Friday night. The ground is shared by the rugby team Gwent Dragons, which does not help the playing surface in any shape or form. It was terrible- the worst I have seen at professional level for over 40 years , making it impossible to play any kind of passing football. As a result the game became a war of nutrition for both sides. Not a great place to watch football. The stadium itself is well placed for the city centre, easily accessed on foot but I would not imagine any visiting team wanting to come and play here. The team itself was well baked by its die hard fans.

I support the Dragons so use the facilities at Rodney Parade on a regular basis. There are rooms to hire for meetings, great bars and a fantastic marquee.
The staff are great and everyone is helpful. Whatever reason you visit, you will enjoy the experience.

Love the place. Just a short walk from the town centre and train station and surrounded by pubs and eateries its a great place to visit to watch either the Dragons or the Exiles. A few tidy bars inside the ground aswell. Cant fault it.

Town centre ground making it easily accessible by public transport (but not easy to park nearby on the street- there is a multi storey nearby but leaving it with everyone else isn't great). Catch the train and walk the five minutes from the station. Great views from the Bisley and Hazell Stands, great atmosphere on the Hazell Terrace, good facilities under the Bisley Stand but not so great in the older Hazell stand. Away fans advised to go for seats as the away terrace isn't covered and looks pretty miserable when it rains! The atmosphere is usually excellent as the stands are so close to the pitch. Plenty of places to eat and drink and many pubs within a few minutes walk.
