Hillsborough Stadium is the home of Sheffield Wednesday Football Club in Sheffield, England. Association Football has been played at the ground since it was opened on 2 September 1899, when Wednesday moved from their original ground at Olive Grove.

Today it is a 39,859 all-seater stadium, with the vast majority of the seats covered. Hillsborough, Grid reference SK332906, is named after the area of Sheffield in which it stands.

Although the ground has received little investment since Euro 1996, it is still regarded as "a beautiful ground oozing character." [1] It has two large separate two tiered stands and two large single tiered stands, all of which are covered. All four stands are of a similar size in terms of capacity, but with the South stand being the largest and the West stand (used for away fans) the smallest. Only one corner of the ground is filled, between the West and North Stands. This area, known as the North West terrace, is uncovered and is only used for visiting supporters when the West stand upper and lower tiers are full. On the other corner of the West stand is an electronic scoreboard.
