History and description

The first match played at Tynecastle was between Hearts and Rangers (1-0), with the trophy awarded to the visitors. The main stand, which is still in use, was built in 1906. Tynecastle Stadium opened its doors on April 10th 1886 with a 4-1 victory between Hearts and Bolton Wanderers. It originally stood on land that was destined for housing and industry but Hearts managed to secure rights to it, which is why the stadium exists today. The first match played at Tynecastle was a 1-0 win between Hearts and Rangers. The main stand, which still stands today, was built in 1906. Tynecastle originally consisted of one wooden stand, but it was soon expanded with two further wooden stands, which increased the stadium's capacity to about 10,000.

Over the next three decades, Tynecastle's capacity increased to over 61,000. New concrete stands were built and additional banking created. The highlight was the construction of the brick and steel main stand by Archibald Leitch in 1914.

In 1932, 53,396 people attended a Scottish Cup match between Hearts and Rangers.

After the war, the terraces were concreted and modernized. A new roofed enclosure was built in 1959.

The attendance at the stadium gradually decreased over the following decades, and in order to ensure safety concerns the stadium's capacity was lowered to 3000 spectators.

The stadium was completely rebuilt in a £100 million project that lasted for three years. In the 1980s, various terraces were converted into seating areas and incremental improvements were made to the stadium. However, it took until 1994 for major redevelopment works to begin. The stadium was completely rebuilt in a £100 million project that lasted for three years.

Construction on the Wheatfield Stand began in 1994 and continued until 1997. The final construction of two new stands was completed at both ends of the stadium.

In the early 2000s, Hearts looked into Option B: reconstructing the main stand at Tynecastle.

Various plans failed, but in 2016 plans for a new main stand were presented. Construction began during the 2016/17 season and was completed in November 2017, increasing capacity from 17,400 seats to over 20,000 seats.
