First Time Visitor To Gresty Road?
All the essential information you need for your visit to the Alexandra Stadium.
Crewe Alexandra would like to welcome all supporters to the Alexandra Stadium, home of the Railwaymen.
Formed in 1877, Crewe Alexandra is one of the oldest Football League clubs in Britain and has experienced many highs and lows during its history. From the trauma of re-election to promotion to the Championship in 1997, Crewe Alexandra has an established and proud history as a club that often ‘punches above its weight’.
The appointment of the visionary Dario Gradi in 1983 and the security of a united and long-serving board of directors helped Crewe Alexandra develop into one of the most friendly and respected clubs in the country. Crewe Alexandra was honoured with the Football League’s Most Respected Club Award in 2005 – an accolade that takes pride of place at the Alexandra Stadium.
Under Dario, the Football Club has developed a well renowned and respected youth Academy that has produced a number of full internationals and generated over £25 million in transfer revenue.
Crewe Alexandra continues to nurture young talent and provide them with an opportunity to play first-team football. Our objective is to produce talented, skilful footballers, as well as disciplined and respectful men both on-and-off the pitch. The club is often awarded the PFA and FA Fair Play Awards for our excellent discipline.
Despite having to sell playing assets to survive, Crewe Alexandra reached the Championship for a period of eight seasons and always strives to play at the highest level possible. 2012 saw the club promoted back to League One via the play-offs and then sell Nick Powell to Manchester United.
The club’s Soccer in the Community scheme is also award winning and holds sessions for children of all ages, as well for those with disabilities and learning difficulties.
We also pride ourselves on the work our dedicated staff members embrace with local schools, colleges and local universities, as well as our own in-house schools’ project ‘The Alex Zone’, where sport and education unite to provide a motivation for learning.
Crewe Alexandra has received the proud accolade of the Family Excellence award on four occasions due to our family friendly atmosphere at the Alexandra Stadium.
During these tough economic times, The Football Club is also keen to assist our supporters by offering real value for money in relation to ticketing and season tickets. We continue to offer some of the cheapest seats in the Football League, especially for our younger supporters. Our free season ticket offer for our Under-11s has once again proved very popular with families.
Club Inclusion & Anti-Discrimination Code of Practice
In October 2015 Crewe Alexandra was one of nine clubs successful in completing a ground-breaking pilot that sets standards for equality in professional football, meeting the Code of Practice foundation level, and setting the benchmark for others to follow.
The Football League’s Code of Practice was introduced as part of a commitment to English football’s Inclusion & Anti-Discrimination Action Plan which ensures clubs are inclusive across all sections of their business. This incorporates match day operations, general operations, community trust, youth development, fans and the first team.
The club successfully passed an independent assessment across 12 areas of operation ensuring good practice extends to all employees, spectators and other people engaged with the club.
The Code of Practice embeds inclusion and equality throughout the whole club, setting accountability at the highest level.
