How Easy Was The Ground to Get To (from the station, by car, etc)
Right off the M6 at junction 3, cant miss it.

If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
You need a permit to park at the ground, but there are plenty of other pay car parks nearby and pretty quick for getting out.

Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
Views are good all around. Its very steep, so even high up feels on top of the action.

How Were The Stewards on The Day?
No problem

If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
Never ate. Worth saying though that it seemed to be one of the best organised grounds Ive ever seen.

How Was The Atmosphere At The Ground, From Both Sets of Supporters? Does the Stadium Hold the Noise?
I was surprised, it was pretty good when it got going.

How Are the Pubs and Local Attractions in The Local Area?
Retail park next door and not much else.

Overall Score Out of 10?
Boring location, but I think its probably one of the better new builds.
7/10

I will add a few more things.

There is a casino at the ground which welcomes both home and away fans. Price of a pint not too bad in there.

Food and drink is pretty expensive, especially for a beer.

Train station is all but complete, but is not in use for football or rugby supporters. If you are going by Train, there are shuttle buses every 15 minutes. £4 return.

If you are driving to the stadium, you can purchase a permit from the Ricoh Arena website. Best bet is to buy a permit in car park C as it is only £5 (as opposed to £10 in car parks A and B) for literally an extra 2 minute walk to the away end. https://secure.ricoharenaparking.co.uk/
