The stadium has seen better days but I wouldn't change a thing. The toilets are basic at best but they have great Christie's pies. You'll also always get a seat. We'll worth a visit.

An enjoyable afternoon at Albion Rovers Football Club in Coatbridge. Some parking in the street adjacent to the ground. A disabled toilet is available. The washrooms have recently been upgraded and were clean and modern. The stands are a bit tired and dated. Excellent snack bar with good products and friendly staff. The pitch was in first class condition. Reasonable entry prices.

We change from the normal today went to celebrate Albion Rovers 140th year in Scottish football, the Wee Rovers from Coatbridge didn't let us down either. For a small club it was a nice gesture to put on their pies & hot drink for £1.40 for all supporters you don't get many premiership clubs doing that for the fans. Both Albion & Stenhousemuir put on a good game ended in a 2- 2 draw but the Ref was a bit harsh with the penalty and sending off 🙄. Smashin wee afternoon watchin football .

History (from Wikipedia)

Rovers moved from Meadow Park to Cliftonhill in 1919, with the new ground opening on 25 December. The Main Stand sits high on a rise above Main Street and was built in the same season as their only Scottish Cup Final appearance. A roof extension over the paddock (a standing area in front of the stand) was added in 1994. Cliftonhill's record attendance was set on 8 February 1936 when 27,381 watched the visit of Rangers. Floodlighting was installed at the ground in October 1968.

During the 1990s it looked likely that Albion Rovers would leave Cliftonhill to share a stadium with local rivals 
Airdrieonians. However opposition from Rovers fans, the local population and others, saw that move fall through. The club considered other options to sell the ground and build a new stadium elsewhere in the town, but these were not taken forward for a variety of reasons, including an unsympathetic local authority, and the club currently has no plans to leave Cliftonhill. The original floodlighting system came from Cardiff Arms Park, when it was demolished to make way for the Millennium Stadium.[1] In 2006 the front entrance and main stand featured in a UK television advert for Flash. Currently, it contains a club shop which opens one hour prior to home first team matches.

In 2007, Cliftonhill was subject to repeated vandalism.

At the start of the 
2016–17 season, Rovers announced a deal with local IT and communications firm Exsel Group that would see the stadium re-branded as the 'Exsel Group Stadium' for at least one season.[3]
