Gayfield Park, know as Gayfield is located in Arbroath, Angus, Scotland and is the home ground of Arbroath FC since 1880 although the ground has only been on its current alignment since the ground was redeveloped in 1925. The original site was very cramped, with no room for spectators on the Dundee Road side. The club’s plans to construct a “Greater Gayfield” led to the pitch being moved 60 yards, so that the original halfway line became the goal line and a stand could be constructed along Dundee Road. Upgrades to the stadium exterior (main front wall, club shop, turnstiles and main entrance) were carried out in 2022, replacing structures which had been largely unchanged since 1925. Gayfield is situated on the sea front, to the west of Arbroath harbour, on the southern edge of the town. Due to its position next to the North Sea, in winter spectators can be exposed to severe cold and winds. It is the closest football stadium in Europe to the sea.
