groundshare (plural not attested)

  1. (rare) The sharing of a sports ground between two or more teams.
    • 1997, Peterjon Cresswell, Simon Evans, Dan Goldstein, European football: a fans' handbook: the rough guide
      The groundshare between the two teams began in 1975.
    • 2010, Silke Steets, Stadium Worlds: Football, Space and the Built Environment (page 169)
      The groundshare has been far from unproblematic and has been extremely costly to the new club, although it has fulfilled the basic requirement of competing in English football (and indeed most sport) of having a 'home' ground.
