New Douglas Park is the previous stadium name, it is currently known as the Hope CBD Stadium for sponsorship purposes, is a football stadium in Hamilton which serves as the home of Scottish Premiership side Hamilton Academical.
The stadium was opened at the start of 2001/02 season and is not far from the site of their former Douglas Park ground from which they left in 1994 (the club ground shared in the intervening years).
Alas, nothing remains of the old ground to be seen, because the site is now occupied by a Sainsbury’s supermarket.
The ground is largely comprised of two fair sized stands at one side and at one end of the ground.
Both are covered and all seated. They are unusual, in terms of modern stands, in that they are both raised above pitch level.
This means that spectators have to climb a set of stairs, to reach the seated area.
Leave the M74 at Junction 5, and follow the signs for Hamilton.
You will pass the racecourse on your left and a large fire station on your right.
At the first set of traffic lights, turn right onto Caird Street. Continue along Caird Street. You turn right, just before the traffic lights (and bingo hall) into New Park Street.
Left after Morrisons will take you down to a small mini roundabout and the stadium in into the left.
