If you’re reading this section, there’s a good chance you haven’t visited Victoria Road to watch Port Talbot Town in action. Well here’s a few things you might want to know for your first visit, we hope it’s a good one!
Who are we?
Founded in 1901, Port Talbot Town are a semi-professional football club based in South Wales, UK. We’re a ten minute drive away from Swansea, and about half an hour away from Cardiff.
We play in the second-tier of Welsh football, after being relegated from the top-flight in 2016/17.
Where do you play?
We play at the Victoria Road Stadium, Sandfields, Port Talbot. We’re a short bus ride away (or a 15 minute walk) from the train station and we have a bus stop directly in front of the front turnstiles. For more details on how to find us, have a read of this.
We don’t believe in making supporters pay small fortunes to watch football at any level. In fact, we pride ourselves on providing an affordable way of watching good quality football, with an excellent atmosphere – just two minutes walk from the beach!
Admission for the 2016/2017 season is:
- Adults – £4.00
- Concessions – £2.00
- Under-16s – £1.00
Do I need a ticket to gain entry?
We’re not ones for turning people away. You can just pay to get in on the gates, located at the front of the stadium (just off Sandown Road) or through the car park at the back of the stadium.
Do you have parking?
Yes, and we don’t charge! There’s a car park for all available at the back of the stadium and is open at least an hour and half before kick off normally.
It can get quite busy in the car park sometimes, but there is never a shortage of non-restricted parking available in the nearby streets. We just ask you park sensibly and not across anyone’s drives.
Can I sit or stand where I like?
Of course, you can sit or stand wherever you like. If you’re in a vocal mood, you can always go stand with our vocal supporters the ‘1901 Ultras’ in the A Block, located on the left side of the far stand as you walk in.
The only restrictions we have in place are at UEFA matches, like Europa League qualifying – where all supporters must be seated (any seat you like, we’re not picky).
What’s the atmosphere like?
Port Talbot fans, nicknamed the ‘Burns Road End Blues’ or the ‘1901 Ultras’ are renowned throughout Wales for being the most vocal supporters across the Welsh leagues. You can read more about the Blues fanbase in our Fanzone section!
Food and Drink?
We have a fully fledged bar in the clubhouse, complete with a main bar area, a serving hatch for hot food, a separate room in the back with seats, separate bar and a telly. There’s also a function room which is sometimes used for events like charity days, special guest dinners etc.
