Lewes FC is delighted to welcome you to the Dripping Pan!
Consistently voted the best away day trip for visiting fans, chosen by the Huffington Post as one of the Top 10 stadiums in Europe, and recently chosen as ‘’Britain’s Greatest Football Ground’ in a public vote for the book of the same name, it surely will be a game to remember!

Stands and access
With picturesque chalk hills of the South Downs in the background, you will enter the ground into the Philcox stand. This is a covered standing area behind the goalpost.
There is free seating in the stadium. You can change ends at half time if you want to, just like the players!
We do have a covered seated area behind the dugouts along the east end of the pitch. The seats are available on a first come first served basis.
You are also able to stand along on the bank on the west side of the pitch!
There is a dedicated area on top of the Philcox stand for people with limited mobility to watch the game from. From the 2022-23 season, we have created a pathway along the west side of the pitch enabling all the fans to be able to walk around the pitch easily.
All Children u16 need to have an adult accompanying them to the game.
The ultimate view in the house is from one of our four, themed beach huts that sit in the north-west corner of the group. They can accommodate up to 6 adults. We have 2 themed beach huts - The Lyle & Scott beach hut and the Xero beach hut. Both come with surprise gifts! ONLY 4 beach huts available each game!
