Recreation Way, the home of Mildenhall Town FC, has recently undergone £30,000 worth of improvements to comply with Step 4 facility requirements. The improvements continue to directly benefit the local community and other venue users.
It should be noted that the Club currently have a long-term lease for the use of the Recreation Way facility for the purposes of Association Football.
The ground is covered by legislation governing sports grounds and is licensed under the Football Spectators Act 1989. The award of this licence demonstrates that fans can have confidence that they can attend matches at the stadium in safety.
The Ground currently complies with Step 4 of the National League requirements (Category C of the FA National Ground Grading criteria, up to National League Step 3). In addition, the newly built stand at the ground is regulated with a general safety certificate issued under the Fire Safety and Safety of Places of Sport Act 1987, the Safety of Sports Ground Act 1975 and all other enabling legislation.
As well as adhering to the statutory and compulsory guidelines, we take pride in operating a safe, clean and pleasant facility, run by volunteers and employees, in order to provide a great place to watch football.,
We will act robustly to protect those employees and volunteers from any harassment they may suffer, and to protect the good name of the Club from any behaviour by our supporters or by visitors which contravenes the generally accepted standards for a modern football environment, particularly with regard to discriminatory or hate speech.
If the Club becomes aware of any person having been convicted of or involved directly in a football related offence, whether at the Club's ground or elsewhere, or having been in serious breach of any Club's ground regulations, it will, in consultation with the relevant police authority and representatives of the Club, make a decision as to whether that person should become subject to a Club ban. Each case will be judged on its own merits. The length of any ban will depend on the severity of the offence and/or the breach of the Club's ground regulations. We seek to be as good a neighbour as we can, so we urge all our fans and visitors to respect those who live and work near the stadium, and to remember that - especially on match days - our fans are ambassadors of the Club, and all fans, home and away, are ambassadors for our sport.
