History and description

Fir Park opened in 1895 with a match against Celtic (8-1) in front of 6,000 spectators. The stadium initially consisted of one small wooden grandstand and terraces on earth banks. The first major expansion took place in 1909 when a second grandstand and roof were added, along with changing rooms, toilets, and a refreshment stand. In 1913 the original ground was given a hardstand on either end and floodlights were installed. In 1921 the Railway End was built, which increased the capacity to over 30,000 spectators. A new main stand was completed in 1923 and a training ground was established adjacent to the stadium. In order to meet the increasing demand for tickets in the 1990s, the Park increased its capacity by constructing a new stand. The most recent redevelopment has seen the construction of 3 new grandstands which have increased capacity to over 53,000.

The record attendance for a Scottish Cup match was set in 1952 when 35,632 fans attended a match against Rangers FC.

A new Main Stand was constructed in 1960 but never completed over the full length of the pitch. As a result, local residents objected to the lack of light and resulting declining property value.

In the early 1990s, Fir Park got converted into an all-seater. Seats were installed at the East Stand terrace and in 1993 the club opened a new two-tier South Stand. Two years later a new single-tier North Stand (Davie Cooper Stand) opened.
