Deeside Stadium is a multi-sport stadium located in Connah's Quay, Deeside. It is the home stadium to Welsh Premier League side Connah's Quay Football Club as well as Deeside Athletics Club.[1]

History[edit]

The stadium was opened in 1998 and became home to Connah's Quay who moved from their previous venue, the Halfway Ground.

In 2006, the Nomads spent time playing at Flint Town's Cae-Y-Castell ground as the pitch at Deeside underwent renovations. Shortly afterwards, they began planning to move into a new purpose built ground, although these plans never came to fruition.[2]

Layout[edit]

The stadium features one raised stand containing 500 seats. Lying next to it is a small disabled shelter. Opposite the stand is a two storey media centre and TV gantry.[3]

Attendances[edit]

Connah's Quay's record attendance at the Deeside Stadium is 904 for a Europa League play off game against Airbus UK Broughton.[4]
