There are three seated stands in the Showgrounds giving a total seated capacity of 4,000. There is no reserved seating so you can sit in whichever area of the ground you like. The largest of these is the Treacy Avenue stand which is on your left as you come through the entrance.
It has a capacity of 1,800 seats and is where the majority of home fans sit and therefore is normally first to fill up on matchnights.
Opposite that is the Jinks Avenue stand which has 900 seats and like the Treacy Avenue stand is fully covered.
Part of this stand is for away supports while 'Forza Rovers' are also situated here.
The third stand is the Volkswagen Bank End which is behind the goals at the opposite end to the entrance. It has 1,300 seats but is uncovered.
