Club: Hull City AFC | Opening: 2002 | Capacity: 25,586 seats
History and description
The KC Stadium replaced Hull’s old stadium Boothferry Park. First plans for the stadium were made in the late 1990s and construction started in 2001. The stadium officially opened on the 18th of December 2002 with a match between Hull City and Sunderland (1-0).
Construction of the KC Stadium cost £44 million and was financed by the city of Hull, that therefore also owns the stadium. The stadium is easily expandable to a capacity of about 30,000.
The KC Stadium is located about a mile west of Hull’s city centre and main rail station. The walk to the stadium should take no more than 20 minutes. Alternatively there are buses that run over Anlaby Road.
By car, approaching the city from the M64 motorway, follow the A63 into the city. Exit the A63 just before the fly-over following the signs for Local Traffic/Infirmary. From there follow the signs to the KC Stadium.
Address: Walton Street, Hull, HU3 6HU
