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.
