The Scot Foam Stadium is located on Dens Road in Dundee, Scotland. The stadium is the home of Dundee F.C. and has a capacity of 11,850.
Uniquely, the stadium shares part of the same road (Sandeman Street) as Tannadice Park, which is the home of city rivals Dundee United F.C. Dundee moved to Dens Park from Carolina Port in 1899. The most recent major development was in 1999, when the 2 new stands were built behind each goal. Fans later voted for these to be named The Bobby Cox Stand & The Bob Shankly Stand after our Legendary Club Captain & Manager from our League Championship Winning team of 1962. The stands were built in a record time of 18 weeks from start to finish for the start of the 1999/2000 season.
Dens Park was the first stadium in Dundee to have its floodlights upgraded in the twenty-first century. Undersoil heating was installed in 2005. The record attendance at Dens Park is 43,024, which was set in 1953 when Dundee played host to Rangers F.C. in the Scottish Cup. Home supporters usually watch the game from The South Enclosure, The Bobby Cox Stand, and The Main Stand, with visitors being housed in The Bob Shankly Stand.
Dens Park has also hosted full Scotland internationals as well as major and minor cup finals in its illustrious history.
