Pop Keeney Stadium, located in Bothell, Washington, hosts games for several high schools in the region, including Inglemoor, North Creek High School, Woodinville, and Bothell High School. Pop Keeney has also hosted state soccer playoffs for both boys and girls.

The stadium is named after Harold 'Pop' Keeney, Bothell's first football coach, and a member of one of Bothell's pioneer families.[3] In the 2006-2007 season, fans could see great players such as all-decade Wide Receiver Marc "Hands" Mulholland.[4]

In 2008, several Bothell high school alumni began raising money for a new replay-capable scoreboard. Donations arrived from all around the country, raising $160,000 altogether. The scoreboard was installed in 2009 as only the second of its kind in the state.[2]

The Northshore 2010 Capital Projects Bond included a project to renovate the stadium, including updates to lighting, stands, and other facilities.[5]

In 2016, the McMenamins restaurant/hotel/brewery complex opened in the buildings of the W. A. Anderson School next to Pop Keeney Stadium.[6] It is now a common pre-game tailgate location for many fans attending games at the stadium.
