London Road, currently known as the ABAX Stadium for sponsorship reasons, is a multi-purpose stadium in Peterborough, England. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of Peterborough United. The stadium holds 14,084 and was built in 1913, although the original ground bears little resemblance to the one seen today.
The stadium was built and opened in the early 1890s, consisting of a single wooden stand with a capacity of just 250, this was replaced in 1923 with a 650 seater. It was owned by the city council and taken over by 'The Posh' following their formation in 1934. The council built brick dressing rooms and a committee room at the back of the wooden stand to support the club. These survived until the 1950s, when the North Stand was constructed.
