What's The Ground Like?

Cappielow is a fair sized ground, full of character, but beginning to show its age. However, with a new Chairman on board, efforts are being made to brighten up and improve the overall state of the ground. The Grandstand on one side of the ground, is a single tiered, all seated stand, which has a number of supporting pillars in front. On its roof are a set of unusual striking floodlights, another set of which are also on the stand opposite. The Cowshed as it is known, is a classic looking stand and is unusual in the respect that it has seating at the front of it and terracing at its rear. Both ends are open to the elements. The Wee Dublin End, is a former terrace, with white benches bolted onto it, which makes it look out of place. This end is normally not used on match days. Beyond can be seen a large crane, which is reminiscent of the ship building days on the Clyde. Opposite is the small Sinclair Street Terrace, that has a small clock behind it.

Future Developments
The Club have bought the Kerr Reid Stand from the St Mirren, who have now left Love Street for a new stadium. It is planned that this will allow the Club to cover the Wee Dublin End of the ground.

What Is It Like For Visiting Supporters?
Fans are housed in one side of the Grandstand, towards the Dublin End of the ground. There are a fair few pillars in this stand that may impede your view and the leg room is on the tight side. For larger games then the Wee Dublin End can also be allocated for away fans to use. A visit to Cappielow is normally a relaxed day out and the Morton fans do their best to get behind their team.

Where To Drink?
The Norseman Bar is right by the ground and is popular with both home and away fans. It can get quite busy on matchdays, but it is still the favoured pre-match venue.

How To Get There By Car & Where To Park
From Glasgow head on the M8 and then A8 towards Greenock (along which you get a fine view of Castle Rock in Dumbarton). Follow the A8 into Greenock and you will reach the ground on your left. It's just after going under a bridge with Picollo's fish & chip shop on the corner. There is a car park opposite the main entrance, which is free, otherwise street parking.

By Train
The nearest station to the ground is Cartsdyke which lies on the Glasgow Central - Gourock line. The journey from Glasgow takes around 40 minutes and then the ground is about a five minute walk from Cartsdyke Station.
