Elland Road is a football stadium in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, which has been the home of Leeds United F.C. since the club's foundation in 1919. The stadium is the 13th largest football stadium in England, and the fourth largest outside the Premier League.

The ground has hosted FA Cup semi-final matches as a neutral venue, and England international fixtures, and was selected as one of eight Euro 96 venues. Elland Road was used by rugby league club Hunslet Hawks in the mid-1980s and hosted two matches of the 2015 Rugby World Cup. The stadium has hosted concerts, including performances by rock bands Queen, U2, Happy Mondays and the Kaiser Chiefs.

Elland Road has four stands – the Revie Stand, the East Stand, the South Stand and the John Charles Stand– and a capacity of 37,890. The record attendance of 57,892 was set on 15 March 1967 in an FA Cup 5th round replay against Sunderland. This was before the stadium became an all-seater venue as stipulated by the Taylor Report and the modern record is 40,287 for a Premiership match against Newcastle United on 22 December 2001.
