Burglars broke into an upstairs office at Sixfields Stadium in Northampton but fled empty-handed after tripping an alarm.
Police have confirmed there was a break-in at the Northampton Town Football Club ground at about 12.40am on Monday morning.
A wooden security door to an upstairs office area was forced open, however nothing was taken from inside.
Communications officer for the Cobblers, Gareth Willsher, said: “There was an attempted break-in. Although alarms were triggered and nothing was stolen.”
Police are appealing for witnesses to the break-in as there may have been late night cinema-goers in the area at the time, who may have seen people acting suspiciously around the stadium.
If you have any information call the force on 101, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
