Y Traeth (English: The Beach) is a multi-use stadium in Porthmadog, Wales. It is currently used mostly for football matches as the home ground of Porthmadog F.C.. The stadium has a capacity of 2000 people, with 500 seated.[1] The Traeth saw its largest crowd in recent years during the season 1993/4, when the last game of the season against Bangor City F.C. attracted more than 2,500 spectators.[2]

Planning permission was granted in December 2009 for a new stand at the 'Quarry End'. The additional seating will allow the club to reach the required standard in order to attain the FAW's Domestic Licence - a requirement for all clubs in the Welsh Premier League.
