Details of the payment are included in the annual accounts for the council, which have gone on public show.
The loan - which attracted a storm of criticism - came in the spring as Huddersfield Town were in the middle of terrible financial problems.
Exact details were not revealed at the time but it was thought have cost the council £250,000.
Details in the accounts show that the council acted to safeguard the future of Kirklees Stadium Development Ltd (KSDL).
A report says: "The council is participating with Huddersfield Town Association Football Club Ltd and Huddersfield Rugby League Football Club Ltd in the development, construction and running of (the McAlpine Stadium).
"The council originally guaranteed the financing of the construction of the stadium, pending the receipt of funds.
"The loan has been restructured and the council has guaranteed the new loan of £7.4m, to be repaid over 20 years commencing in February 2001.
"The council has also agreed to guarantee English Partnership's investment of £1.7m in the North Stand part of the project.
"Huddersfield Town entered into administration during 2002/03 and was unable to meet in full its rental commitments to KSDL. To prevent KSDL being unable to honour its loan commitments and have the risk of the council guarantee being called, the council has agreed to provide a loan to KSDL until the position of the football club is clear.
"A loan of £200,000 has been advanced as of June 30, 2003."
The accounts also show that the council has contributed £3.9m to the company plus the funds arising from the sale of the club's former ground at Leeds Road.
In the year ending July 31, 2002, KSDL had net assets of £9.2m and a profit for the year of £232,000.
The council pays a rent of £76,000 for office space at the Stadium and operates the swimming pool and dance studio for a peppercorn rent.
