What's The Ground Like?

The ground was opened in 1995, after a period of ground sharing with Hamilton & Partick Thistle, following their leaving of their old Shawfield ground in 1986. The ground has only three sides, the North End being unused. These stands are single tiered, have windshields to either side and are all seated and covered affairs. The size of the stands are roughly of the same height, although the Main Stand at one side of the pitch, is slightly taller than the other two. This stand has some enclosed corporate seating at the back. Broadwood is that it is the highest ground in Scotland (in terms of being above sea level).

Future Ground Developments
The Club have to plans to build a fourth stand at the North End of the stadium. However there are no firm timescales as to when this will take place and it is probably now only likely if the Club achieve promotion to the Premier League.

What Is It Like For Visiting Supporters?
Away supporters are housed in the West Stand at one side of the pitch. The view of the playing action, leg room and the facilities within the stand are both pretty good. The empty North part of the ground, gives some pleasant views of the Campsie Hills, but can also allow a biting cold wind to enter the ground, so make sure you wrap up well. In fact some visiting fans have nicknamed the ground 'Ice Station Broadwood'. Still if you need some central heating then the pies are pretty good. The atmosphere can be a bit flat at times, in an attempt to liven things up, if Clyde score, then 'Dare' by the Gorrilaz, blasts out around the ground.

Where To Drink?
Ronnie Wallace, a visiting Airdrie supporter, informs me; 'There is a Brewers Fayre pub/restaurant near to the ground off the Craiglinn roundabout. There are other pubs in the neighbouring housing estate of Balloch however finding them (or finding your way back!) in the maze of pedestrian walkways can prove quite challenging'. Otherwise in the nearby village of Condorrat there is the Masonic Arms pub. To find this pub from the front of the stadium go up to the roundabout and turn right, then left at the next roundabout. The pub is just on your left as you enter the village.

How To Get There By Car & Where To Park

The ground is situated on the outskirts of Cumbernauld, just off the A80 Stirling Road. The ground is well signposted from the A80 and there is a good sized car park at the ground, which costs 2 (it is free though for season ticket holders). However, it can take sometime after the game to get out of it.

By Train
The nearest station, is Croy station which is about a 20 minute walk away from the ground. This station is served by trains from Glasgow Queens Street. Visit www.the-ice-station.co.uk for detailed directions on how to get to the ground from the station.

Hotel Accommodation
If you require hotel accommodation in the area then first try a hotel booking service provided by Football Hotels who are powered by Activehotels, who specialise in locating accommodation near or within a short travelling distance of the football ground. They also have the added advantage over some other hotel booking services that you pay on departure. Yes this site will earn a small commission if you book through them, but it will go to help with the running costs of keeping the Guide going. To access their Clyde page click here.
