Pirelli Stadium is a multi-use stadium in Burton upon Trent, England. It is currently used mostly for football matches and is the home ground of Burton Albion F.C.. The stadium holds 6,500 and opened in 2005. The record crowd for the stadium stands at 6,191 when Manchester United visited the ground in an FA Cup tie in 2006. But after discussions the official capacity was raised to 6,500, with 2,000 seated and the rest terracing.

The Pirelli Stadium was built because the previous stadium Eton Park had become run down and was limited in the ways it could generate income for the club outside of matchdays. It was built on the site of the Pirelli UK Tyres Ltd Sports & Social Club.Fact|date=March 2007. The new Pirelli Stadium offers potential for generating income seven days of the week, including conference rooms throughout the main stand with the largest holding 300 people. On match days there are nine directors boxes available for supporters wanting a more relaxed view of the game. There are four bars, one on each side of the ground, which are all open before and during games.

One side of the ground "The Main Stand", is the only seated stand at the club and can hold just over 2000 supporters. The other three stands are terraced and are the favourites for most supporters.
