A FAMILY CLUB
At Bangor City we pride ourselves on being a family and community orientated Football Club where everyone is made to feel welcome. We ask our fans to be respectful and help us so that anyone coming to Nantporth has a positive experience. We support an Inclusion and Anti Discrimination Code of Practice. Our staff and stewards are here to help but will take action if it is felt that language and behaviour are abusive or discriminatory. Throughout the season we have designated games for Show Racism the Red Card and Stonewall Cymru's Rainbow Laces campaigns as well as supporting various events and initiatives aimed at families and communities being more involved with the Citizens.
STADIWM VSM BANGOR STADIUM
Protracted negotiations between the club, councils and developers led to Bangor City leaving the much-loved Farrar Road ground in the city centre in late 2011 and moving to a new purpose-built stadium at Nantporth, on the banks of the Menai Straits. Immediately popular due to its excellent playing surface and facilities, the Stadium has become the venue of choice for representative matches in North West Wales. To date, Nantporth has staged several UEFA Europa League matches, two Welsh Cup Finals and numerous intermediate international matches featuring the Wales national teams.
The Stadium has seated capacity for 1,189 spectators.
