Scotstoun Stadium is an athletics and rugby union stadium in Scotstoun, an area in the West End of Glasgow, Scotland.

Glasgow Warriors have trained at the facility since 2009 and play their home games here from the 2012–13 season onwards.[3] It has a capacity of 9,708 for rugby union.[4]

Between 2012 and 2015, the Stadium hosted the Scotland Sevens[5] – the Scottish leg of the IRB Sevens World Series, but then the leg was moved to a new host country, France in 2016.

History

The facility first opened in 1915 as Scotstoun Showgrounds after the land was developed by the Glasgow Agricultural Society as a venue for agricultural shows. It was soon being used as a venue for sporting events and as a result the Grandstand was erected. The facility underwent a huge renovation in 2008 and on completion was re-opened on 14 January 2010 by the Princess Royal.

Renovation

Renovations involved building new stadium facilities housing new office space, meeting rooms, an indoor 100 metre sprint track, as well as resurfacing the outdoor 400 metre track with a full size rugby pitch in the in-field. The stands were extended creating a north stand and south stand which together can seat up to 5,000.

2010 also saw the introduction of new synthetic pitches and rugby training pitches located at the far end of the stadium. In addition to these, the stadium has a strength and conditioning suite for athletes.

Scotstoun Stadium was used as a training venue for the 2014 Commonwealth Games and is regularly used for premier athletics events attracting world class athletes from all over the UK.

It became the training base for the Glasgow Warriors rugby team in 2009[6] who subsequently started playing home games at the venue in September 2012, moving from their previous home at Firhill.[7] Scotstoun Stadium first hosted the Scottish leg of the IRB World Sevens Series in May 2012, and continued to host the event until it was moved to France in 2016.

Victoria Park City of Glasgow Athletics Club also trains at Scotstoun.[8]

Scotstoun Stadium has their own mascot, ScottieRoo, who regularly makes appearances at special events and children's birthday parties.[citation needed]
