Post Office Road

Post Office Road, currently styled as the Bigfellas Stadium for sponsorship purposes (and previously The Chris Moyles Stadium named after the Radio 1 DJ and celebrity Chris Moyles and before that the Lionheart Stadium after sponsorship from UK Coal), is a rugby league ground in Featherstone, near Pontefract, West Yorkshire, England. It is the home of rugby league club Featherstone Rovers. The ground's current capacity is 6,750.

The ground opened in 1904 and has been used by the club since their formation in 1908. The record attendance is 17,000 from a 1957 game against St Helens.

From 2007, it was announced that ground would be renamed the Chris Moyles stadium after the Radio 1 Disc Jockey.

From 2009, the ground sponsorship was taken up by Bigfellas Nightclub following a two year sponsorship deal.

Structure

The old shed was replaced by a family stand. Featherstone also had a clubhouse in the car park but it was destroyed by fire.
