Glanford Park: All you need to know - Tickets, Direction, Weather (2022)

Glanford Park was built in the 1980s to replace Scunthorpe's Old Show Ground. It was the first new English Football League stadium to be built in over 50 years, and the first new stadium to be built in England since Southend's Roots Hall in 1955. First plans called for incorporating the Old Show Ground's cantilever stand, the first cantilever stand to be built in England. However, a move of the old stand turned out to be not feasible, so a new stand was instead constructed on top of the old ground.

History and description

In the 1980s, Glanford Park was built to replace Scunthorpe's Old Show Ground. It was the first new English Football League stadium to be built in over fifty years. The first plans called for incorporating the Old Show Ground's cantilever stand, which was the first cantilever stand to be built in England. However, it was found that a move of the old stand would not be feasible.

The official attendance for the first game was 8,000. The Glanford Park Stadium officially opened on August 14th, 1988 with a friendly match between a Scunthorpe XI and a Football League XI. The stadium was named after Glanford Borough Council who financed it. The stadium cost £2.5 million and the official attendance for the first game was 8,000.

In 2014, the Scunthorpe football team began investigating the feasibility of moving to a new stadium. However, in 2017 they abandoned plans to move and are now looking to redevelop Glanford Park.

How to get to Glanford Park

Glanford Park is located on a retail park on the western edge of the town of Scunthorpe, which is about 2 miles from Scunthorpe?s town centre and a similar distance from Scunthorpe?s rail station, which is located south of the centre. The stadium can be reached by bus from the bus station in the town centre. There are buses that include the 31, 32, 35, 90, and 361.
