Arbroath F.C. were recently awarded funding from The SFP to assist with a project to replace seating within the Main Stand at Gayfield Park. The Main Stand, which has a capacity of 876, was last renovated in 2002 and after it became apparent that some of the seating had deteriorated to such an extent that it was becoming a safety concern for spectators, the club agreed to replace a section of these seats.
Mike Caird, the Club Chairman thanked the SFP for its support and commented “Arbroath Football Club are once again extremely grateful for the financial assistance that The Scottish Football Partnership has been able to provide towards ground improvements at Gayfield Park. This summer has seen the replacement of a large number of seats in the main stand which was part funded by a Facilities Award Grant. Arbroath Football Club have been supported for many years by The Scottish Football Partnership with assistance for several projects and greatly appreciate the fantastic relationship we have been able to build up with them.”
