On one side of the ground is an old looking wooden Main Stand. This single tiered covered stand, is all seated and runs for around half the length of the pitch. This stand has a fair number of supporting pillars running along the front of it, although the seating is raised above pitch level. There is also a tiny terrace in front of this stand. Entrance to the seated Main Stand is gained within the ground, on payment of a transfer fee (£2 per adult, £1 per concession). Opposite is a fair sized terrace, which has a simple rusty looking roof which covers the middle portion of it. One end is known as the Club House End. This is a partly covered terrace (to the rear), which looks quite picturesque with a wooded hill just beyond it. The other end, known as the Swanscombe End, is an open terrace that is dominated by a huge electricity pylon which sits directly behind it. This end is given to away supporters.
The Club was formed in 1946, following the merger of Northfleet United and Gravesend United. It was renamed Ebbsfleet United in 2007.
Inside the ground is a comfortable Club House which is popular with both home and away fans alike. Otherwise, next to the ground is 'The Plough' pub. There is not much else in terms of eating or drinking establishments near to the stadium.
