meh… very meh. went to see the accies as we love to support the local clubs but defos a weird ground. steak and gravy pie is the worst pie i’ve had in a while and it has vegetables in it for some reason? for some reason the stand are about 20 feet off the ground and there’s 2 with a hut at the bottom. atmosphere is poor with no noise apart from big games. off to airdrie next to see the excelsior stadium in a goal to get to as much stadiums as possible

Unusual looking ground for an unusual club. Two stands and a gazebo. Other two sides bounded by the back of supermarkets. It’s exposed location means games often affected by the wind. Often cold there- wrap up warm!Catering below par. Good parking and close proximity to Hamilton West railway station 🚉

Not the prettiest ground in Scottish football, a very functional place rather than architecturally pleasing but I suppose it does the job. The Accies are a well run club, their business model of bringing on young players and supplementing that with solid professionals is keeping them in the top flight of Scottish Football. The ground has only 2 stands and an AstroTurf pitch so not ideal for Football or atmosphere and considering their reasonably good position in Scottish football the people of Hamilton seem oblivious to them.

Nice modern ground. Easy access & parking. All seated. Plastic pitch. Steak pie & Bovril were great.

Nice wee boozer, friendly bar staff and the locals aren't too hostile.

History (from Wikipedia)

In 1990, Clyde had secured an agreement to move into a stadium in the new town of Cumbernauld, which due to shifting population patterns was by now one of the larger settlements in Scotland without a senior football team. The new all-seater Broadwood Stadium would not be ready until 1994.

Clyde moved into the venue midway through the 
1994–95 season. Broadwood has hosted Scotland U21 matches and four Scottish Challenge Cup finals in the past. Broadwood was also home to Airdrieonians for four seasons from 1994 to 1998 and Rangers reserves for a while.

On 9 December 2010, Clyde had informed their landlords at North Lanarkshire Council (NL Leisure) of their intention to relinquish their lease on Broadwood and move elsewhere.
[53] Furthermore, on 19 October 2011, Clyde revealed that they were investigating the possibility of a move to East Kilbride, the largest town in Scotland without a senior football team.[54] Another option was to move back to Rutherglen and develop the Clyde Gateway Stadium in a ground-sharing agreement. This had received approval from current tenants Rutherglen Glencairn.[55]

In April 2022, the club announced they would be leaving Broadwood at the end of the 
2021–22 season, ending their 28-year stay in Cumbernauld. They will be ground-sharing with Hamilton Academical at New Douglas Park from the start of the 2022–23 season, with a view of relocating to a new home back in Glasgow in the near future.[56]
