Absolutely brilliant experience at Harrogate Town and their stadium. Fantastic family feel to the place, great facilities and service. They also have Stoma toilet facilities, which is absolutely amazing for those with such needs. Superb!!

A tidy little ground that's clearly seen some improvement in recent years. If they can improve the one end, which currently serves no purpose, they'll be in business.

I thought Harrogate Town coped very well with the power problem at last night's match with Portsmouth. The ground is compact but has really good facilities. The cafe we queued at had plenty of stock, including vegan and vegetarian options. The surface looks good and played very well considering the icy rain and wind.

History (from Wikipedia)

While Harrogate Town formed in 1914, their original ground was on Starbeck Lane with the club later moving to Wetherby Road. The club constructed the Main Stand in 1990; with the most recent development being the Hospital End stand being built in 2014. Since September 2020, the ground is sponsored by local ventilator manufacturers EnviroVent.[5]

The record crowd was for the 1949–50 Whitworth Cup Final against 
Harrogate Railway (4,280), while the record league gate was for the 3–0 win over Brackley Town in the National League North playoff final in May 2018 (3,000).[6]

Due to 
English Football League regulations requiring natural turf, Harrogate played their first home games after their 2020 promotion at the Keepmoat Stadium in Doncaster. On 17 October, they returned to Wetherby Road and won 1–0 against Barrow in the first EFL game at the ground.[7]


The pitch is aligned on a north–south alignment. To the East side is the all-seated Main Stand, to the West side is the turnstiles and a smaller all seated stand with facilities for sponsors and the directors. Until 2014 there were no structures to the northern (hospital) side of the ground, however, spectators could stand alongside the pitch. In 2014 a covered stand with standing facilities was added. To the south side is the clubhouse.[8]

I have to say, I've spent quite a few evenings in the Old Bell Tavern. The food, IMHO, is top-notch. Maybe not the level of the Queen's Head Inn, but very... Read More
