John Ilhan Memorial Reserve, currently known as ABD Stadium for sponsorship reasons, and often referred to as Broadmeadows Valley Park, is an Australian soccer ground in Broadmeadows, a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria.

It is the home of Hume City FC. The venue has a capacity of 5,000 and is the only stadium in the City of Hume that is up to NPL standard. The ground is named in honour of former Crazy John's owner John Ilhan. There are 4 soccer fields, two of which are used for juniors and training purposes, (one being a synthetic field). There is also a turf athletics track for long jump, javelin and discus with an infield soccer field. The main field contains a pavilion with underground state of the art change rooms used for senior training sessions and match days for Hume City FC.
