The A. O. Shirley Recreation Ground is a multi-use stadium in Road Town, British Virgin Islands.[1] It is currently used mostly for football matches and usually hosts the British Virgin Islands national football team's games. The stadium holds 3,000 people.

The ground has also been used as a venue for cricket matches, with the first recorded cricket match played there in 1988 between a Combined Virgin Islands and Nevis.[2] Three years later, the British Virgin Islands cricket team first played there against Anguilla in the 1991 Leeward Islands Tournament.[2] Just over a decade later, the Leeward Islands played a first-class match there against the Windward Islands in the 2001/02 Busta Cup.[3] This is the only first-class match to be played at the ground. The last recorded cricket match played there was in 2005.[2] The grounds end names are the Police Station End and the Super Value End.[4]
