Before I book my ticket, what stand should I sit in?
There are three options if you are supporting Motherwell. The East Stand is the smallest stand in the ground. However, it’s always packed week-in-and-week-out because it’s got the most vociferous atmosphere. The front row is only three feet away from the pitch so you are literally within touching distance of the players.
The Davie Cooper Stand at the North end (behind the goal) is our newest of the four stands at Fir Park and is suitable for families and young children. As well as an embargo on bad language, there’s plenty for the young ones to do including face painting in the concourse as well as visits from our mascots Claret and Amber.
Alternatively, the best view of the pitch can be found in our Phil O’Donnell (Main) Stand. Located in the West side of the ground, you can get yourself within feet of the home and away dugout to really get a flavour of what the managers are doing.
Our STADIUM PLAN will give you an idea of where you can sit depending on your preference.
Alternatively, you can take the 360′ virtual tour from the centre circle ,giving you a clear idea of what you can expect from Fir Park and some history on the ground itself: 360′ VIRTUAL TOUR
