The great thing about the Racecourse ground is it is loved far and wide. Even those who go home well beaten love it. Here are Cheltenham FC fans enjoying there day out in 1983.

incredible, memorable, stunning, inspiring, humbling....
what a journey,
The Racecourse ground is officially full to capacity. Petitioners signing the LDP petition are now being asked to stand on the beloved Kop, still closed pending Wrexham Villages' sparkling rennovation promises.
We hear great tidings of joy - the Wrexham supporters trust are close to securing the purchase of the Football Club, the Racecourse ground and colliers park. The community of Wrexham will never be the same and it is they more than any other stakeholder who have sustained the club for so many generations.
We hear news of fans walking up a famous Welsh mountain to secure the club.
Protect The Racecourse feels very proud to be amongst such gallant brethren.
Cae Ras am byth !

We may have achieved our aim to Protect The Racecourse in the LDP, but it would be a shame to give up now!
We still want 10,500 signatures - to match the capacity of the Racecourse - and we're nearly there.
So get your mates, family, associates, acquaintances, random strangers whoever to sign the petition now!
Sign it here.
Well, I'm sure all you Wrexham peeps will be aware now that the Protect The Racecourse petition has succeeded in protecting the world's oldest International football stadium!
A big thank you to everybody who has supported our campaign and who signed our petition. This couldn't have been done without the help and support of a lot of Wrexham supporters, local people and football fans from across the world. Well done!
This is the Daily Post article - and I think we should all recognise the fantastic work the Post has done recently for Wrexham Supporters:
Wrexham FC's Racecourse Ground to be protected
WREXHAM'S historic Racecourse Ground took a major step forward today to being protected from development.
At a special planning committee meeting councillors recommended the stadium should be safeguarded as a site for sport.
The historic Mold Road ground is joined by three other local sports stadia Queensway, North Wales Tennis Centre, and Bangor on Dee Racecourse as protected sites.
The recommendations of the special planning committee will now got to Wrexham's executive board and the full council for rubber stamping before going to the Welsh Assembly Government for final approval.

The petition continues to go from strength to strength, as we now sit proudly at 8,199 names - only 2,301 short of our overall target of 10,500.
Credit for this must go to El Poncho, who has driven this campaign forward with the gritty determination of oxen on amphetamine. Bravo!
That is not to neglect, of course, the support we have had from fellow Town fans and from the wider football world. Astounding. Football may be tribal, and therefore often divisive, yet we see, time and time again, football fans standing shoulder to shoulder on issues which transcend our rivalries. We may have witnessed such solidarity before but it never fails to be humbling.
We must reach our target. Can I ask for anybody who hasn't signed the petition yet to do so now, and if you have - ask your mates, family, neighbours, workmates, random people in the street. Anybody with a name, basically.
The petition is here.
One group of people from whom we've felt support has been lacking has been our elected representatives - our councillors, our Assembly Members, our Members of Parliament. Why they have been reluctant to come out in defense of the real jewel in the crown of our humble little town, we do not know.
There are one or two notable exceptions, and we will give the others a little more time to respond before we let our fellow Fanistas know who has helped and who hasn't, but I will take this opportunity to remind our politicians of this - the football club is, in many people's eyes, the town. Supporters' loyalty to their club is unswerving and paramount; they will remember who has supported this campaign, and who hasn't, come polling day.
Just ask Dr John Marek.
