Belson Stadium is a soccer-specific stadium located along Utopia Parkway in Queens, New York City, New York on the Queens campus of St. John's University.

An interesting feature of the stadium is that it is built on top of a parking garage to save space in a crowded urban environment. The official capacity is listed as 2,600 but it has seated as many as 5,000 for local rivalry matches.
