For any away supporters that may struggle to stand for the whole game, please buy an away ticket (North Stand) as normal and then speak to a steward when you have entered the ground. The Stewards will allow supporters with reasonable requests to transfer to a segregated seating block in our main East Stand. Please note that there is a limited capacity of seats in this area.
FGR have a limited number of wheelchair accessible seating in our main East stand, for any supporters with Blue Badges. These are booked over the phone via the FGR Reception (01453 834 860). Please note that these are limited, so we recommend all supporters book in advance to avoid disappointment.
There are over 450 parking spaces available onsite at £4 (cash only), with very limited parking in the local area. It can get very busy on a Matchday, so we would recommend supporters to travel down in plenty of time. For any supporters that choose to park in the local residential area, we would request you please park with consideration for our neighbours and adhere to local parking enforcement.
They do have a limited number of wheelchair parking spaces, which can be booked by contacting the FGR Reception directly (01453 834 860). Please note that these are booked on a first come first serve basis, so we recommend all supporters book in advance to avoid disappointment.
In terms of catering, the Green Man pub will be open to both home and away fans from 12pm, serving a great range of hot food, with a fully stocked bar (real ale, cider, larger) and hot drinks to boot. The North Stand also has a catering outlet serving a good range of hot food and cold & hot drinks.
How to get there.
Don’t forget to look up Nailsworth, south of Stroud in Gloucestershire.
The best way to approach is from the M5 and exit at junction 13 and head for Stroud on the A419. At Stroud turn onto the A46 towards Nailsworth. This will bring you into the centre of the town, when you reach the Information Centre take the first right at the mini roundabout which goes up a steep hill sign posted Forest Green. The Lawn is at the top of this hill. Turn left at the roundabout at the 'summit' into the Club car park, which holds 250 cars.
The cost of parking is £3 per car. Please note though that this car park is often full an hour before kick off.
There is no railway station in Nailsworth itself. The nearest is in Stroud which is three miles away.
