Larne F.C.

Inver Park is a football stadium in Larne, County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It is the home ground of Larne F.C.. The land was acquired by Larne in 1918 and has been in continuous use as a stadium ever since. In 2010 the official capacity was set for safety reasons at 1,100 with seating for 656 in the main stand.

In 2010 the club struck an agreement with property developers GML who agreed to build a new stadium on the site that would meet the Irish League's domestic licence criteria to enable Larne to play senior football should they win the Championship One in the future in return for Larne's agreement to give up an acre of land adjacent to a development site next to the ground. The deal, however, has been delayed due to the falling value of the property market, which has led GML to halve their initial bid of £6 million for the land. An agreement is expected in 2011 that will see the project commence by 2012, but it was delayed again, so it has not started until 2016.
