Club: Stevenage FC | Opening: 1961 | Capacity: 6,490 (3,300 standing)
History and description
The Lamex Stadium, also known as Broadhall Way, was built in 1961 and first served as the home of Stevenage Town and next of their successor Stevenage Athletic. Following the bankruptcy of the latter in 1976, the stadium was left unused until in 1980 newly formed Stevenage FC (then still called Stevenage Borough) made the stadium their home.
In 1996, the club was denied promotion to the football league because Broadhall Way did not meet the required capacity of 6,000 places of which 1,000 seats. Subsequently, the club embarked on an expansion program which included the construction of a new main stand.
In 2009, Broadhall Way got renamed The Lamex Stadium following a naming rights sponsorship deal with the Lamex food group.
