Groundshare with Spartans.

in the last week
A nice, small and modern stadium with great facilities. Enjoyed the Edinburgh City v Stranraer match with plenty of goals. The ground felt like if I was watching a Bostik league game back in England.

History (from Wikipedia)

In March 2017, Edinburgh City reached an agreement with Spartans to use Ainslie Park for three seasons while Meadowbank Stadium is being redeveloped.[2]

Facilities[edit]

Ainslie Park on Pilton Drive in north Edinburgh is the home ground of Spartans, part of their Community Football Academy. The new facility incorporates a fully enclosed stadium which meets SFA and SFL criteria, with an artificial pitch, floodlights, seating for 504 spectators and an overall capacity of 3,000. Another full size, floodlit artificial pitch sits adjacent to the main playing area and the accommodation incorporates six changing rooms, a club room, committee room and a physio room. The Club ground holds a PA system and a bar for spectators.

Transport[edit]

Waverley and Haymarket, the main railway stations in Edinburgh, are both approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) from the stadium.

The nearby 
Ferry Road is served by Lothian Buses route numbers 21 and 27.[3] Services 19, 29, 37 & 47 also run within 0.5 miles (0.8 km) of the stadium.[3]
