  • Visitor Information

Home of Conference South team Sutton United FC, the Borough Sports Ground has a capacity of just over 5,000 - although only 765 seats. Also known as Gander Green Lane (or simply GGL), the venue was originally used as a racing track - hence the crowd being slightly set back from the pitch. The main stand was built in 1951 and contains blue seats donated by Chelsea FC. In 2010/11, Sutton United were crowned the Ryman League Premier Division Champions and were duly promoted to the Conference South. The record attendance for Gander Green Lane is 14,000 and was set when Sutton United played Leeds United in the FA Cup in the 1969/1970 season.
