I only go on this forum on my phone and can't seem to find a thread on this! There probably is, but I'm lazy. So how many grounds have you been to?

I've been to 108 grounds in total, but have only seen a match at 106 of them. My latest grounds are Arena II Philip (Macedonia National stadium) FK Cukaricki (Cukaricki - Serbia), Red Star Stadium and Stadion Gradski (NK Osijek - Croatia).

Going to Oxford City in a couple of weeks and hope to be at 110+ by the end of the season.

Here's my full list - www.thefleetadventures.blogspot.co.uk (Grounds I've visited section).

Going through mine and I feel a bit emasculated, just 24 not including grounds I've not seen a match at.

What sort of levels are we looking at here though? Just down to conference or absolutely every ground you've ever been too?!

Estimate 25 - 30 but can't be bothered to think back and check exactly!
Majority of mine are the Yorkshire/Derbyshire/Notts clubs, but a few others too

Probably around 50 or so, i'd be here forever trying to remember them all

Just counted those I can remember and came out at 47, so pretty good guess of 50.

Been inside 2 other grounds without seeing a game, St Pauli and Bayern Munich.

Every ground you've been to mate. Most of mine are non-league anyhow. Only done between 20 and 30 league grounds, and 6 abroad.

Quick count through got me 88, mostly from the last ~10 years with Macc; probably missed/forgotten a couple and a couple are old grounds moved out from.

I never used to. Mate of mine was wondering how many grounds we'd been to, so counted up and kept count since.

Once you've been to all the away games with your team it's harder to get to new grounds unless you have the money to get elsewhere, so one season I just looked out for special offers on tickets and ticked a few off! Did about 25 games outside of Fleet one season.

Braintree was my most recent new ground which was ground number 161 for me, only 5 of which I haven't seen a Grimsby game at.

I find this website is brilliant for keeping track of grounds visited.

I only count a ground if I've seen a game there.

More or less 100.

Some I'm not sure of because I've been taken to Bury since before I can remember. Some days I've been to Brentford, or Millwall, or Bolton Wanderers with my father, other days he'll deny it. It also depends what you count as a visit. On a cycle ride to Land's End we passed Malvern Town where we wandered in, Tiverton Town where we wandered around looking to sneak in, and Truro City where we perched over the ground thanks to a few barrels left by the perimeter fence. Then there's say, Penrith Town's old ground, which I visited a year too late via a break in the fence.

I only count a ground when I have been to a game.

115 in total.

Chesterfield's new ground is one of the 5 I've been to but not seen a Grimsby match. I have a couple of mates who are Exeter fans and went to Chesterfield v Exeter a few seasons ago on the last day of the season, as it was the day before we were away at Newport in the play-off semi-finals.

I think it was Jack Lester's last game and Chesterfield won 4-0.

I've done a count and have got to 44 to actually see a game, but I'm sure I've missed a few. It includes 7 I haven't seen Harriers play at.

I'll have a look in the morning at the ones where I haven't seen Fleet playing. Will be a fair few I imagine!

85 so far. Done 2 new already this season; Southport and Borehamwood, hoping to add a few more new ones in the coming months.

Speaking of doing a ground not with Fleet, I went to Tranmere v MK once. Not 100% of the score but I know it was a Tuesday night and Jabo Ibehre(sp) scored. Ian Goodison was solid!

Living in the south east means there's loads that are easily accessible. Starting to run out of options now though!

I'm probably around the 80-100 mark, but I can't say I've kept count.

Low end estimate from a quick scan through is about 130, high end maybe 150. Highest division I haven't visited a ground in is at step 4.

Partially so many due to having followed a team in 7 different divisions so far (including the u18s year). Could get a good accurate count going year by year through fixtures but I can't be bothered.

I wonder how many others who have broken 100 have done so following their club? I've got a few neutrals on top of course (not a ground-hopper, just with friends teams etc)
