Athlone Town Stadium (often referred to as Lissywollen) is the home stadium of Athlone Town. It has a seating capacity of 2,024 and an overall capacity of 5,000. The stadium was built in 2007, replacing St Mel's Park as the home of the club.

In November 2011, it was reported that Athlone Town had received a donation of €500,000 to wipe out debts incurred through the construction of the stadium.[1]

The stadium is highly regarded as one of the top League of Ireland grounds and has received a Premier Division licence every year since it opened in 2007
