Stoke is a very cold ground - my mate is a Potter and we went there to watch them play Chelsea about half a dozen times whilst they were in the top flight. The wind blows a right hoolie through the gap.Thinking of stadiums I have been to.
I remember the coldest I have ever been at a football match in the UK was at Stoke's Britannia Ground.
For those that haven't been there, the stadium is perched up on a hill and the away end is next to one of the corners which is open to the elements.
Jeebus effin wept.. The wind just whips in from the gap and one game I remember in particular it was so bloody cold that my hot coffee froze.
The away end at St James Park is so far up in the gods that you had better not have a heart condition before you embark on the never ending stairs to get to your seat.
St James Park is one of our favourites with the almost aerial views. Friendly fans too.
Our coldest ever match was at Burnley vs Chelsea a couple of seasons back in Feb 2017 when light snow was falling - knees and feet were aching like crazy by half time. And they had run out of hot pies by the time we worked our way to the front of the crush at the interval. All the players looked miserable as sin too. Miserable journey home as we as we played much better than the 1-1 result suggested but Burnley were in full hack them down mode all game.
