On Wednesday 10th August I visited the Globe Arena, home of League 2 side Morecambe for the first time.
Morecambe FC played at their original home of Christie Park for 89 years before moving to the newly built Globe Arena at the start of the 2010/11 season, the same season that Chesterfield moved to the B2Net Stadium. I never got the chance to visit Christie Park, which is now occupied by a Sainsburys supermarket.
During a day out in Morecambe, we decided we would visit the new stadium. After a short walk to the ground, we were greeted by an impressive entrance at the back of the main stand. We headed into the reception and were kindly allowed inside the ground and into the home dressing room.
The main stand which is all seated is by far the best area of the ground.Behind each goal there are standing areas which is suprising as most newly built grounds tend to have seating. However it is the area opposite the main stand which again is all standing that looks rather out of place. It makes it look like the ground is unfinished, though I suppose it leaves plenty of room to develop the ground in the future.
Below you can see my photos from the Globe Arena.
