Kingfield Stadium is the home of Woking F.C.. It is situated in the Kingfield area of Woking, Surrey. The stadium has a capacity of 6,036 of which 2,500 are seated. The main stand, called the Leslie Gosden Stand, is much higher than the rest of the ground and towers above the other stands. The stand is entirely covered seating. Opposite this stand is the Kingfield Road End, which is a covered terrace. One side of the ground has two small seated stands and a small open terrace known as "moaners' corner". The other side is a long open terrace, called The Chris Lane Terrace, which is reserved for away fans when a match requires crowd segregation but can be used by anybody when there is no segregation in place. Above the Chris Lane Terrace there is a camera tower where the highlights are filmed from.

As well as hosting Woking F.C. games, matches have also been played at Kingfield by the English National Game XI and the England women's U17 team.[1]

The record official attendance at the ground is 7,020 for the FA Amateur Cup match between Woking and Finchley in the 1957-58 season. Unofficial reports suggest as many as 8,100 were present when Woking played Charlton Athletic in the FA Cup 1st Round on November 27, 1926 but the official attendance that day is recorded as 5,593.[2]

Hayes & Yeading shared the use of the stadium for both the 2011-12 and 2012-13 season and will continue to do so for at least the first part of the 2013-14 season.
