Bower Fold is a sports stadium in Stalybridge, Greater Manchester, England and is the home ground of Stalybridge Celtic Football Club and Oldham Roughyeds Rugby League Club.
Capacity is currently 6,500 with 1,200 seats. It was announced in December 2015 that Oldham RLFC would play their home games at Bower Fold from 2016 onward, as their previous home was seen as unfit to host Championship rugby competitions.
Having enjoyed their stay at the Fold in their first season of Championship rugby league, Oldham were “delighted” to successfully conclude another agreement with Stalybridge Celtic, said club chairman Chris Hamilton.
Of the 12 games Oldham won in all competitions in 2016, nine of them were at Bower Fold and no doubt they will be looking to build on that home advantage next season. The stadium is notable for being the only active ground in the country where the pitch faces a perfect north alignment.
