Welcome to The Ballymena Showgrounds
Ballymena Borough Council working in partnership with Ballymena United Football Club and Sport NI has developed one of the best sports facilities in Northern Ireland. The Showgrounds oozes the excitement and energy of a major sporting venue.
Spread across 32 acres, the Showgrounds is the perfect venue for major events and is already home to the annual County Antrim Agricultural Show, the NI Milk Cup, the Ulster Traction Engine Rally, Ballymena Raceway, Skysports Victory Shield and the Association of Old Vehicles Clubs for NI.
Famous for our outstanding welcome and experience for international visitors, we are also home to a multitude of local sports clubs and organisations. Steeped in sporting history, we continue to develop both our facilities and our partnerships - come and see for yourself what we have to offer.
