Nethermoor Park is a football stadium in Guiseley, West Yorkshire and the home ground of Guiseley A.F.C.. Opened in 1909,[2] the stadium has a capacity of 4,000.[1] Following the club's promotion to the National division of the National League in 2015, plans were submitted to ensure the ground passed the ground grading requirements of a 4,000 capacity with 500 seats; the expansion would involve creating new terraces on three sides of the ground and covering all four sides.[3][4] The extension was completed before the 30 March 2016 deadline.[5]

The record attendance at the ground is 2,486 for an FA Vase semi-final against Bridlington Town during the 1989–90 season.[6]
