John Smith’s Stadium

Stadium Way



Huddersfield moved in to their new stadium in the summer of 1994 after 86 years at their old Leeds Road base.

The 24,000 all-seater stadium was built in the early 1990s by a partnership including Kirklees Metropolitan Council, Huddersfield Rugby League Club, now Huddersfield Giants, and The Terriers and opened as the Alfred McAlpine Stadium.

It was named The John Smith’s Stadium as part of a sponsorship deal in 2012.

There are four separate stands at the ground and away supporters are housed in the end behind one goal currently called the John Smith’s Stand.

That stand has room for more than 4,000 visiting supporters if required.

How to get there

The John Smith’s Stadium is approximately 193 miles from Griffin Park and is just off the A62, which runs through the centre of the town.

Supporters heading to Huddersfield would normally travel via the M1 and drivers can either leave at junction 42 to take the M62 and then the A62, junction 25, or leave at junction 38 and take the A637 and B6118 to meet the A62.

There is a large car park at the ground and other car parks near to the stadium where supporters can pay to leave their vehicles.

The nearest station is Huddersfield, which is just under a mile from the stadium with a walk through the town centre.

Huddersfield is served by Northern and First TransPennine Express services. Travelling by train to Huddersfield involves changing but there are lots of options as services run from Manchester, Piccadilly and Victoria, Leeds, Wakefield, both Westgate and Kirkgate, and Sheffield.

As such to get there from London could involve Virgin Trains, from London Euston, or East Midlands Trains, from London St Pancras and take just over three hours.
