Annfield Stadium was a football stadium in Stirling, Scotland. The stadium was home to Stirling Albion F.C. until 1993 when the stadium was closed down due to Stirling Albion moving to Forthbank Stadium. The stadium was sold and demolished to make way for a new housing development.HistoryBefore the Second World War, King's Park was the Scottish Football League club based in Stirling, but their Forthbank Park ground was destroyed by the Luftwaffe during the war. Rather than resurrect King's Park, a group of local businessmen led by coal merchant Tom Fergusson, decided to purchase the Annfield Estate. A new club called Stirling Albion was formed. Oak trees were cleared from the estate to lay a pitch and Albion trucks were used as viewing platforms until a stand was built. Annfield was opened on 1 August 1945 and the first game to be played at Annfield was Stirling Albion's tie with Edinburgh City on 18 August 1945, Stirling Albion won the game 8–3.A main east stand was built in 1946 and rebuilt three years later, while a west stand was built in the early 1950s. The record attendance of 26,400 was set by a 1958–59 Scottish Cup tie against Celtic. Soon after this, a roof was erected over the northern terracing. Floodlights were installed in 1961 and inaugurated with a friendly match against Birmingham City in November. During this period, the Annfield House provided the dressing rooms and club offices. A new block containing these functions was erected behind the east stand in 1974.
