The Shay lies on the south side of Halifax, and was originally comprised of three completed stands, boasting a maximum capacity of approximately 6,500 spectators.
However, the club have been able to complete the East Stand increasing the capacity to between 10,000 and 10,500 after coming to an agreement with the local council.
The four stands currently at the Shay are the North Stand, the new East Stand, (opened 27th March 2010) the South Stand and the Skircoat Stand.
