The Forthbank Stadium was opened in 1993, after the Club moved from their original Annfield home. The modern stadium comprises two seated stands, on either side of the pitch and a small terrace at either end. The largest of these stands is the West Stand, which is a covered, single tier, all seated stand, that has some executive boxes running across the back of it. Opposite is the similar looking East Stand, which is smaller that the West Stand, not so much in height but in its overall length. This is also covered, all seated and has Police Control Box situated at its rear. Away fans are allocated this stand. The terraces at each end of the stadium are almost identical. They are small and uncovered box like affairs, which are situated well back from the pitch. These terraces are only opened for the bigger games. Looking out beyond the North Terrace there are some wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. Outside of the stadium there are a number of artificial pitches behind the West Stand.

Away fans are located in the East Stand at one side of the pitch, where up to 1,000 fans can be seated. This covered stand, has good facilities and provides a good view of the playing action. If demand requires it then a further 500 terrace spaces can be provided in the South Terrace.

At the Forthbank Stadium itself there is 'Binos Bar' which operates in one of the hospitality suites in the Main Stand. Normally away fans are welcomed, however for high profile games then it may not do so. Otherwise as the stadium is on the very outskirts of town, there is not much around. However there is one pub called the Kerse Inn on the nearby Retail Park, which you will pass on your right as you drive down to the stadium.

Leave the M80 at Junction 9 and take the A91 towards Alloa. At the 4th roundabout turn left and the ground is just down this road on the right. There is a large car park at the ground which is free.

Stirling Railway Station is a about a mile and half away from the ground, so either a 20 minute or so walk or jump in a taxi.

Come out of the front exit at Stirling railway station and turn left. You will see a modern looking foot bridge not too far in front of you as you walk down the road. Use this bridge to cross over the railway tracks. When you come down the stairs at the other side walk straight ahead then go diagonally across the grassed area to Forthside Way. This road will bend round to the left and take you over a mini roundabout straight towards the stadium which will become visible on your left hand side. Thanks to Iain Badger for providing these walking directions from the railway station to the stadium.
