Most FC United home matches are played at Gigg Lane, Bury, BL9 9HR, home of Bury FC. Directions to Gigg Lane and other information about the ground are available here
Some home games are played at other grounds, and in 2011-12 at least two will be played at Bower Fold, home of Stalybridge Celtic. Because FC United are tenants at Gigg Lane, on occasion a match which was originally scheduled for Gigg Lane may be moved to an alternative venue to accommodate a re-arranged Bury match. Please check the fixtures page of this website for the most up to date details.
Turnstiles open at 2pm on Saturday matches and at 7pm on midweek matches. Please arrive in time for the start of the match; our turnstiles are operated by volunteers and arriving early will allow them to finish work as soon as possible after the start of the match. The correct change is also very gratefully received. There is a sign above each turnstile indicating which category of supporter can use each gate and a summary is listed below. Please refer to this information to speed up entry.
For supporters who do arrive late there will be one late turnstile open until at least 3.30 and usually until half time. This will be number 19 in the Manchester Road End. For games when only the Main Stand is open, turnstile 10 will be the late gate. If there is no turnstile open when you arrive, a steward will be able to help you gain access to the ground.
Listed below are the turnstiles which are generally open at FC United matches at Gigg Lane. Bury FC’s ground regulations require segregation and the away supporters section is in part of the Main Stand. Please note it is normal to open only the Main Stand for midweek games and some cup games.
