Rice Road has been used as the home ground of Ammanford AFC for many years, even when the club were known as Betws FC & Ammanford Town.

In 1963 the clubhouse was built on the grounds of Rice Road.

In 1964 the club built a 450 seater stand which at the time cost an astonishing £4,000.

Unfortunately in April 2003 there was a fire at the stand and it was burned down.

In the 2006/07 season following the closing of the clubhouse and changing rooms all Welsh League games were moved to the Rec to follow the ground criteria required to play at this standard.

The Recreation Ground

The Welsh League pitch is the newest in the Ammanford AFC setup, having been built after Ammanford RFC moved its pitch to play vertically rather than horizontally in front of the clubhouse as before. The football field runs in parallel to the rugby pitch and is surrounded by fencing.

The first ever game  on the ground was in 2006. It was an U17’s game v Lonlas which the Ammanford won 2-1 having won the League and Cup Double the previous season.

For the 2006/07 season all Welsh League games were moved to the new ground to follow ground requirements.

Railings, fencing, dugouts and a stand were introduced in 2007 whilst concrete was added around the ground in 2010 before being added behind the nearest goal (Changing room side) in 2011. Railings were addedd behind the nearest goal in 2012.

However, the ground was improved significantly in the summer of 2018 as the club ensured that they maintained the required criteria to maintain their position within Tier 2 of the Welsh League structure.

As part of the developments, perimeter fencing, floodlights and a 250 seater stand were added to modernise the Recreation Ground.
