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 😀

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.

Good atmosphere at this ground with 1 seating stand along the long side of the pitch. Decent onsite clubhouse for refreshments before the game. The stadium is in the shadow of Dumbarton Castle, which is well worth a look if you are in the area. The stadium is a short walk from Dumbarton East train and tge Town centre.

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.

Names[edit]

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]
