Boothferry Park Halt railway station was a British railway station which opened in 1951 on an embankment of the former Hull and Barnsley Railway to serve the Boothferry Park football stadium in Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, that had been built five years earlier. It is one of a number of stadia in English football to have had such a facility, including Manchester United FC Halt (still open), Watford Stadium, and Ramsline Halt in Derby, also previously the first Wembley Stadium station.

The station was first used for a match against Everton when six trains ran the football service between Paragon Station, Hull's central railway station and Boothferry Park. The station closed in 1986 for safety reasons.

The platform was finally removed in October 2007 by Network Rail during engineering work.
