Broadhurst Park

Broadhurst Park is a sports stadium in Moston, Greater Manchester and the home ground of Football Club United of Manchester.

The stadium has a maximum capacity of 4,400 spectators.

A pioneering football ground in the UK, the ground is a testament to the power of fan-driven initiatives. As the first stadium built and funded by a supporter-owned club, FC United of Manchester, it boasts a capacity of 4,400. The ground features covered stands, a mix of seating and standing areas, with a prominent standing section behind one of the goals. The design and construction of the stadium were heavily influenced by the club’s members, resulting in a facility that not only serves as a football ground but also as a community hub. The stadium hosts a variety of sporting and recreational activities and includes amenities like a function room and meeting spaces for local community use.

In a notable environmental initiative, FC United aims to transform Broadhurst Park into the UK’s first pollinator-friendly football stadium, backed by a £4,000 Grow Wild community project award. This reflects the club’s commitment to ecological sustainability and community engagement.

The funding for this £6.3 million facility was sourced through multiple channels. FC United supporters raised £2 million through a Community Share Scheme and nearly another £1 million through additional fundraising. Grants were also received from several organizations, including Sport England, the Football Foundation, Manchester City Council, Social Investment Business, Manchester College, and Viridor. This collaborative funding effort underscores the strong community support and innovative approach behind Broadhurst Park’s development.
