Dens Park Stadium lies in the Hilltown area of Dundee, about 1.5 miles (2.5 km) from Dundee city centre. Dundee have played at Dens Park since 1899 and following the team’s promotion to the Scottish Premier League in the 1998/1999 season, the ground was upgraded to SPL standards to give an all-seated capacity of just over 12,000. Average attendances nowadays are around 8,000, a far cry from the ground’s record crowd of 43,024 who watched the Dark Blues battle against Glasgow Rangers in a 1953 Scottish Cup tie.

There are four main seating areas at Dens Park Stadium: the original North and South Stands, and the two new stands, the Bob Shankley Stand and the Bobby Cox Stands, which are positioned behind each goal. The new stands are single-tiered and each hold around 3,000. They were built in record time for the start of the 1999/2000 season and named after the 1962 club captain Bobby Cox and manager at that time, Bob Shankly. The facilities within these stands are good and the view of the playing action is excellent.

The Main (North) Stand is unusual in that it is slightly curved in shape, meaning that those sitting near the half way line are furthest away from the playing action. It is two-tiered although the bulk of the seating is in the upper portion of the stand. The South Stand is single tiered but is unusual in that it only runs for about two-thirds of the length of the pitch. Both these stands have a fair few supporting pillars that may restrict views of the playing action.As you visit ‘Dundee Football Club’, you may find interest in following listings . . .
