Ochilview Park, home of Stenhousemuir Football Club

Located in the middle of Stenhousemuir in Falkirk Council Area, Ochilview Park lies immediately to the north of Main Street (the B905) and has been home to Stenhousemuir Football Club since 1890, with a capacity of 2645.

In 1928 the wooden grandstand was lost to fire and a replacement was built. A new 626-seat stand was built in 1996 and the old stand was demolished three years later. The ground was shared with Falkirk Football Club in 2003-04 before they took occupation of the new Falkirk Stadium. A synthetic pitch was installed at Ochilview in 2006. New seven-a-side pitches with similar synthetic playing surfaces followed, together with new changing facilities and showers. New floodlighting was installed in 2006.

The club formed in 1884 and are known as The Warriors. Early success gave way to extended periods in the Third Division, with occasional but unsustainable promotion to the Second Division. Stenhousemuir did beat Glasgow Rangers 2-1 at Ibrox Stadium in a League Cup tie in 1972 and reached the League Challenge Cup Final in 1996.

On 7th November 1951, the club made history by playing in the first floodlit match in Scotland.
