Stadium


 Map view 

Huddersfield's stadium gained awards for its design after it opened in 1994 near to the town's former Leeds Road ground.

Named the Kirklees Stadium in its planning stages, it has since had name changes to the Alfred McAlpine Stadium, the Galpharm Stadium and more recently the John Smith's Stadium.

It hosts the soccer matches of Huddersfield Town, Yorkshire's only Premier League club in the 2017-8 season, and the rugby league games of Huddersfield Giants.
