The Sir Matt Busby Sports Complex is a public leisure centre located in Bellshill, North Lanarkshire, Scotland. It is named in honour of Sir Matt Busby, the football manager who was born in Bellshill in 1909, managed Manchester United from 1945 to 1969 and died in 1994.

It opened in 1995, the year after Busby's death.[1]

An image of Sir Matt's face adorns the centre's reception area.

Bellshill Athletic F.C.Edit

The local football team Bellshill Athletic played their home games on one of the astro-turf pitches after their original home New Brandon Park, in the Hattonrigg area of Bellshill, was shut down to cut costs. That arrangement ended in Summer 2011, when they would move to Fullarton Park in Tollcross, Glasgow.
