Our Impressions of New Douglas Park

At the start of this season (2001 - 02) Hamilton moved back home to their new home of Ballast Stadium (although fans still call it New Douglas Park). It only has two stands at the moment but there plans to build the other stands within the next few years. The current capacity is 5300

Directions to New Douglas Park

By Road

Whether approaching Hamilton from North or South, leave the M74 at junction 5, normally signed for East Kilbride. This will take you onto the Raith Interchange, which can get a bit hairy at rush hour but should be OK for footie traffic. (If you're coming down from East Kilbride or using the Bellshill bypass to arrive from the East then you should also use the same roundabout). From there, follow the signs for Hamilton, which should take you onto Bothwell Road, with the Sewage Works, Cat & Dog Home and Racecourse on your left and the Fire Brigade HQ on your right. At the first set of traffic lights, just beside the Fiat car showroom, turn right into Caird Street towards the Retail Park. The car park which can be used by visitors belongs to South Lanarkshire Council and is about 200 yards along the road on your left. The stadium should be visible on your right behind the Bingo Hall and is only about 100 yards away.

By Rail

The stadium is right beside Hamilton West station. If travelling from Glasgow Central, take a train from the low level platform to 'Motherwell, via Blantyre'. The trains normally leave at 8 and 38 minutes past the hour and the journey time is just under 25 minutes. If necessary, you can get the train via Bellshill as well, although this takes about 10 minutes longer. Don't use Hamilton Central station as it's nowhere near the stadium!
