Checkatrade.com Stadium – stadium description
After 49 seasons at the old Town Mead, Crawley FC in 1997 moved from the north to southern part of town. The purpose-build Broadfield Stadium served as a long-term solution after Taylor Report, eventually being opened with three grandstands.
The main one and only part to have seats was built in the west, along with all crucial club facilities. Both ends received covered terracing while the east side, along Brighton Road, was initially left open.
Following amazing success and promotion to League Two in 2011, the east side was filled with temporary seating, which in 2012 received a canopy.
In 2013 the ground became subject to its first ever naming rights contract, with Checkatrade.com.
