Enjoyed an excellent day out at Stirling Albion v Elgin! I was fortunate enough to be a guest at their Matchday Hospitality - the catering was top class with truly wonderful cuisine and generous drinks, served in a friendly and welcoming manner. Fully recommended!!

A nice stadium comprising two seated stands with good facilities over all it was a nice day out on my last visit .The club previously played at Annfield Park which has caused many a confusion on a quiz night when the question is asked apart from Liverpool who else played at a ground called Anfield?

History (from Wikipedia)

Concept of Forthbank[edit]

Forthbank was constructed by Central Regional Council to replace the town's older football stadium Annfield. The council had decided that Annfield was beyond repair and decided to build Forthbank on the outskirts of the town. Forthbank has been the home of Stirling Albion since 1993.[2] Forthbank was named after Forthbank Park, the first football ground in Stirling.

Construction and expansion[edit]

Forthbank was constructed in 1992, at the time it was designed to be an all seater stadium with plans to expand the capacity by constructing two terraces behind each goal. These terraces were constructed in the mid-1990s and host space for an extra 300 people in each terrace.

  • The West stand is the main stand of the ground and is home to the home support. Within the main stand are the hospitality suites and the club offices.
  • The East stand is designated for visiting support and includes the press room, police control room and detention facilities.
  • The South terrace is designated for use by the home support.
  • The North terrace is designated for away support.

Temporary Re-branding
[edit]

In 2010 as part of a three-year sponsorship deal Forthbank stadium was officially renamed the Doubletree Dunblane Stadium.[3] However the deal was not renewed and the stadium returned to its original name of Forthbank which it has kept since.

Current plans and development[edit]

Stirling Council have started to develop around Forthbank constructing new sports and leisure facilities. The council have also constructed the new St Modan's High School close to the stadium.
