Glanford Park has been home to Scunthorpe United since the Club moved from the Old Showground in 1988. A fairly modest, compact ground, it has four covered, single-tier, equal-height stands – three with seating, one with terracing (for home fans). Originally named North, East, South and West, the stands are rebranded as new sponsors come on board. Currently they are called the ArcelorMittal, Grove Wharf, AMS and Scunthorpe Telegraph Stands.
Away fans are housed in the AMS (South) Stand– capacity 1,678. If necessary, extra seats are allocated in the south corner of the Scunthorpe Telegraph (West) Stand.
The stands are linked, keeping the winds out. Views throughout the ground are restricted by a myriad of supporting pillars. The Away Men’s (AMS Stand) toilet is located next to the refreshment hut (causes much congestion at half time) and is a struggle to enter/exit (some urinals are positioned along the corridor).
The Police usually provide a vehicle escort for Away fans’ coaches leaving the ground!
