Description: Glanford Park

It’s famous for one single reason. In 1988 Scunthorpe United were the very first club in over 30 years to have a new ground in England. No wonder some call it the beginning of a revolution in English football that was struggling with serious safety regulation issues in late 1980’s.

The name given to this simple, single-tiered venue comes from Glanford Borough that used to exist there, but has been dissolved later. Since United aren’t playing above third tier in league system, they’re allowed to have a portion of terracing inside the stadium.

Despite announcements from 2006, the ground hasn’t been redeveloped yet. First phase was supposed to be a second tier to one of the stands.
