Prenton Park – Tranmere Rovers

Posted on Updated on

Ground number 135

First Visit = 2-1-16 Tranmere 1-2 Macclesfield (Vanarama National League) 6/10

A huge ground (it holds over 16,000!) for a fifth division side and it really makes you want to get back into the league to go to more clubs of this size.

Prenton Park has a lot of history and has been the home of Tranmere for over 100 years.

It is dominated by the imposing Kop behind one of the goals and is a tidy modern stadium that not so long ago was hosting second tier football.
