Broadfield Stadium (known as the Checkatrade.com Stadium for sponsorship purposes) is a multi-purpose stadium in Crawley, England. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of Crawley Town F.C. The stadium has a capacity of 5,996 people, and is owned by Crawley Borough Council. From 1 September 2013, the stadium has been known as The Checkatrade.com Stadium as a result of a 5-year sponsorship deal.

Stands

West Stand

The West Stand is the main stand, running two thirds of the length of the pitch. It contains club offices, merchandise shop, changing rooms and hospitality. It is raised above pitch level meaning that fans have to climb a small flight of stairs at the front to enter the seated area. Prior to the building of the East Stand, it was the only stand in the stadium to contain seats and a small section at the north end of the stand was available to away supporters. It is now entirely for home support.

North and South Stands

Two identical small roofed terraces. The south stand contains the most vocal home support and the north stand is allocated to away fans. Both stands curve around the corners of the pitch to meet up with the west stand.

East Stand

The East stand is an all seated roofed stand with a capacity of 2,154. It is mainly for home fans although some seats at the north end of the stand are available to away supporters. The stand opened for the first time on Good Friday 2012 for the League Two home game against Crewe Alexandra.

The stand was planned following promotion to the football league in May 2011, to comply with Football League regulations. Work on the East Stand of the stadium started in early February 2012. It replaced the uncovered East terrace which was a standing area.

Alongside the stadium renaming in September 2013, the East stand was renamed as The Checkatrade.com Stand.

Location

The Stadium is located next to a roundabout about a mile from Crawley railway station and two miles from Three Bridges railway station, which is on the Brighton Main Line. The roundabout has a large white and red football in the centre and is at the end of the Brighton Road, which is easy to find from junction eleven on the M23 motorway.
