SCUNTHORPE UNITED

Glanford Park (capacity 9,088)

Glanford Park has been home to Scunthorpe United since 1988, when the club left the Old Show Ground, making it the first new football league stadium to be built since the Second World War. The stadium is actually based in Glanford, so when the local council of Glanford provided a small amount of funding, the club named the stadium Glanford Park.

The stadium itself is quite a simple design, with all four stands being equal in height and of similar appearance. The corners are filled in although they are not used for supporters. The Britcon Stand behind one of the goals is the only terraced stand, with the others being all seated.

Away fans visiting Glanford Park are located in the South Stand, behind the goal, with a typical allocation of 1,700.

Scunthorpe Railway Station is just over two miles away from Glanford Park, so the majority of away fans opt to take a taxi to the stadium.

However, if you are feeling more energetic, it is walkable within about 40 minutes. Upon exiting the station, turn left on to Station Road and continue until you reach the crossroads. Turn right on to Oswald Road, going past a set of traffic lights as well as the Honest Lawyer and Blue Bell pubs. At the next set of traffic lights, turn right on to Doncaster Road.
