Aggborough is a football stadium in Kidderminster, England which serves as the home ground of Kidderminster Harriers. It has a capacity of approximately 6,238, of which 3,140 can be seated. The record attendance at the ground is 9,155, when the Harriers entertained Hereford United in the FA Cup in 1948.

The ground was the first in the country to host a floodlit FA Cup match, when on 14 September 1955 Harriers played Brierley Hill Alliance in a preliminary round replay, which Harriers won 4-2.

When Kidderminster won their first Conference title in 1994, Aggborough was not deemed to be up to Football League standards and as a result Kidderminster did not achieve promotion to Division Three. By the time Kidderminster won their second Conference title six years later, the ground had been upgraded to Football League standards and promotion was awarded, though they were relegated back to the Conference after five years.

The ground is set to be used by the West Bromwich Albion Reserves for select games during the 2008-09 season.
