Fox’s Biscuits Stadium (historically known as Mount Pleasant) is a rugby league stadium in Batley, West Yorkshire, England. It is the home of Batley Bulldogs.
Renowned for its famous slope, Fox’s Biscuits Stadium is situated at the top of the hill that overlooks the town of Batley. The end of the ground at the top of the hill is surrounded by three grandstands. Behind the rugby posts is a relatively new terraced stand, which houses the players changing rooms and also executive boxes.
At the opposite end at the bottom of the hill is an open terraced stand. As you go back up the pitch down one of the sides, the terrace is closed off due to safety reasons. The bottom corner of the pitch sees quite a large dip, which the home side use to their advantage.
In the diagonally opposite corner is the players entrance, which is situated between the new terraced stand, and a small all seater stand that runs down half of one side of the pitch. The stadium’s current capacity is 7,500.
The record attendance was set at 23,989 for the visit of Leeds for a third round Challenge Cup match on 14 March 1925. On 19 December 2014, the Batley announced a two-year sponsorship with Fox’s Biscuits, including the renaming of Mount Pleasant to Fox’s Biscuits Stadium.
