York Stadium is an outdoor football, rugby and soccer stadium located at York University in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is the home of the York Lions.[2]


Prior to 1995 the site was a grass field and the then Yeoman football team played home games at Esther Shiner Stadium at Bathurst Street and Finch Avenue.

There is a small bleacher seating 2500 spectators and an enclosed booth for broadcasting/scorekeeping, concessions, washrooms and changerooms.[3]

In 2013, the stadium's grass surface was replaced with FieldTurf.


The stadium was replaced by the Pan Am and Parapan Am Athletics Stadium after 2015 as the main stadium for football at York.
