Staff lovely - particularly stewards and door staff who sorted me out with access after I bought ticket on-line but hadn't time to receive a paper brief in the post. Nice pie & Bovril from a well-run snack bar (cash only) and a great cantilever granstand in an iconic location. It'll never be Boghead but, of course, nowhere ever will be!😁

Really enjoyed my first match here. Brilliant selection of 150 year anniversary shirts, scarfs and caps in particular. Really friendly staff in the club shop and bar. Up the Sons 😀

Only one stand,, lacks any atmosphere & the wind blows in making it pretty cold,, so wrap up warm,, staff were good,, prices were the highest paid in the league for snacks,, advised to eat something prior to entrance 👍

My family and I attended a wedding here yesterday. It really blew my expectations out the window. I assumed it would be okay but the staff, the atmosphere and the overall venue were top notch.

History (from Wikipedia)

The stadium has just one stand, officially opened on Saturday 2 December 2000 prior to the visit of Elgin City; a match which ended 3–0 to the Sons. It is nicknamed The Rock by fans, as it is adjacent to Dumbarton Castle. Open areas ring the three sides without stands.

The Scotland international team have also used the stadium for training purposes before playing home matches.
[4] Celtic have used the stadium for UEFA Youth League home games.

Aside from football the stadium also hosts many other events; wedding receptions, conferences & parties.


The original name of the stadium, Strathclyde Homes Stadium, changed after the stadium sponsor, Strathclyde Homes, went into receivership in September 2011.[5] On 18 February 2012, the stadium was officially renamed Dumbarton Football Stadium, sponsored by DL Cameron.[6] It was renamed again, just five months later on 20 July 2012, The Bet Butler Stadium.[7] On 9 July 2015, the stadium was unveiled as the Cheaper Insurance Direct Stadium, after fan Alex Couper and his company took over the sponsorship.[8] At the end of the 2016–17 season the name reverted to Dumbarton Football Stadium.[9] In July 2017 the club agreed a deal with local radio station Your Radio, which would see the stadium known as 'The YOUR Radio 103FM Stadium' for at least the next two years.[10] That deal was cancelled in May 2018 with Your Radio facing an uncertain future,[11] with C&G Systems agreeing a three-year deal a week later.[12]
