Huish Park is a football stadium in Yeovil, Somerset, England home ground of Yeovil Town F.C.. The current stadium is in the suburbs of Yeovil and was built as a replacement for the club's previous ground, The Huish, in 1990.[2][3]

About the ground

Both sides of the ground are similar looking stands and are of the same height. They are both cantilevered, covered single tiered stands that are all seated. Each stand has windshields to either side. The only differences between these stands, is that the AgustaWestland Community Stand has some executive boxes running across the back of it, plus the dug outs and players tunnel and a small simple looking electric scoreboard, whilst the Cowlin Stand has a press box suspended from beneath its roof. At one end is the medium sized Blackthorn Terrace, which is covered and for home supporters and again has windshields to either side. Opposite is the Copse Road Terrace, which is given to away fans. This is smaller and uncovered. Oddly the steel work is in place at the back of this stand to incorporate more terrace space, but the concrete rows have so far not been added. Perched above the rear of this stand is a large electric scoreboard. The ground is completed with a set of four modern floodlight pylons, one in each corner of the ground.

The ground has two seated stands (the Cowlin Stand and the AgustaWestland Community Stand) and two standing ones (the Blackthorn Stand and Copse Road Terrace, the latter being the away stand). The record attendance at this ground, as of January 2010, is 9,527 v Leeds United on 25 April, 2008 in League One.

Huish Park has also played host to an England U18 match, versus The Netherlands U18 team and an U16's match against Wales.
