Leeds Road was the home ground of Huddersfield Town FC from 1908 until 1994. In January 1990, the Taylor Reportrequired all clubs in the top two divisions of English football to have an all-seater stadium by the 1994-95. Huddersfield were in the Third Division at this stage, but were aiming for promotion – finally achieving it in 1995. The club’s board decided to replace Leeds Road with a new all-seater stadium at a different location, and quickly settled on a new site opposite the original stadium. The ground was demolished in 1994 and the site was redeveloped as a retail park.
