The Moss Rose is a small, compact little ground that whilst having undergone significant recent developments, is reflective of the club's days as a non-league club prior to 1997. Despite thse changes, the ground has maintained it's intimate feel and is full of character with the Main Stand on the London Road side of the ground most notable.
Seating accommodation is available on three sides of the ground with the away fans located in the Alfred McAlpine Stand (seating) and standing on the Silkmen Terrace.
