The John Smith’s Stadium, more commonly known as the Kirklees Stadium, is a multipurpose sports site in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. In 1995, the Stadium won the RIBA Building of the Year award for its modern structure, one of the first modern-era Stadiums to be built in England and to be included in the Premier League. When it first opened as a sports venue in 1994, only the Riverside (Revell Ward) and the Kilner Bank (Britannia Rescue) stands were in place. The South Stand (Chadwick Lawrence) soon came after in December 1994 and the North Stand (Fantastic Media) in 1998.
The stadium has been the home ground of Huddersfield Town Association Football Club and Huddersfield Giants of the Rugby League after both teams moved from Leeds Road. Since then, the Stadium has hosted 4 Rugby League World Cup Matches in 1995, 2000 and 2013, and had witnessed Huddersfield Town wins their greatest matches against Reading and Wakefield Wildcats.
