League One's grounds from best to worst - where Bristol Rovers, Shrewsbury Town, Exeter City and others rank

The Memorial Stadium is ranked by the home and away fans who have visited it - and ranked against the other 23 grounds in the division.

League One has a variety of football stadiums with some all enclosed whilst others are grounds that have needed a lot of work done to get to the required standard.

The likes of Bolton Wanderers and Derby County have fairly sizeable stadiums that have hosted Premier League football since the turn of the 2000s, and in Bolton's case they've even had European football played there. If you compare that to the likes of Burton Albion and Cheltenham Town for example where their stadiums are slightly smaller and can't always meet the needs of supporters of big clubs who want to take sizeable away followings, then it shows how weird and wonderful the division is.

Bristol Rovers themselves have had some ground work done this season with their South Stand being completed a few months ago. It was a welcomed boost as for the past few seasons, they've been limited on capacity and now they can welcome more supporters through the turnstiles, both home and away. Hussain AlSaeed has some grand plans for the Memorial Stadium and that is to develop the whole ground, with the ultimate goal of the Gas reaching the Championship in the next few years.

Second tier football is someway off at the moment, with Matt Taylor's side currently 11 points off of the play-offs but there's a hope that in the summer with a clear and obvious plan, they can challenge for promotion.

For the time being, it does beg the question as to which League One stadium is actually the best? Which is the worst? These questions may be subjective but BristolWorld has used Google review ratings to compile a table of stadiums in League One ranked from the best to worst based on the feedback they have received from those who took time out to open up on their experiences. These reviews come from those who have visited the ground and given their opinion on things such as facilities and match-day experience. It could mainly be of supporters who wouldn't otherwise go to the ground regularly.
