Falkirk Grounds

Part Six - The Falkirk Stadium

Falkirk moved into The Falkirk Stadium at the start of season 2004-05. At this time the Stadium had only one stand at the west side of the pitch - The Main Stand.

The club started the season well and it soon became apparent that the promotion to the Scottish Premier League was a distinct possibility. A second stand was quickly erected at the north end of the pitch in order to increase the ground's capacity to over 6000. The North Stand was used for the first time in April 2005 for the match versus Ross County in which Falkirk would clinch the Scottish League First Division Championship.

The record attendance for a match at this stadium currently stands at 7,851 and occurred when playing Hibernian on Saturday 14th May 2016 in the Scottish Professional League Premiership Play-Offs.

In 2009 a third stand at the South end of the ground was constructed and was officially opened on August 1st 2009 for the friendly match versus Royal Antwerp. The stand was funded by local businessman and supporter Sandy Alexander. The current capacity of the stadium is 7,979.
