Horsfall Stadium is a sports stadium located just off Halifax Road in Bradford, West Yorkshire, England, approximately 2.5 mi (4.0 km) south-south-west of the city centre. It is currently the home of Bradford Park Avenue Football Club and Bradford Airedale Athletics Club.

It was originally built as a running track in 1931. It was upgraded for football when Bradford Park Avenue moved to the stadium in 1994. The track was upgraded to a synthetic surface at the same time.

In 2007, there was a number of improvements made to the ground including a new directors' and sponsors' room, a meeting room for the players and management, a new medical room, kit room and toilets. In addition, fully monitored CCTV has been installed to protect the facility and prevent the vandalism that has plagued the ground in previous seasons. The main stand was also recently refurbished, with seats 1,800 coming from Lord's Cricket Ground. These changes were made due to new stringent ground grading requirements of the Football Association.

As Avenue are now ambitious to regain their league status, the club is planning a move away from the Horsfall in the near future, either to share Odsal Stadium with Bradford RLFC, or to move to a new stadium of their own.[1]
