dbo:abstract
  • The Excelsior Stadium, known as the Penny Cars Stadium for sponsorship reasons, is a football stadium in Airdrie, North Lanarkshire, Scotland. It is the home ground of Airdrieonians F.C. of the Scottish Professional Football League. It is an all-seater stadium with a capacity of 10,101. The stadium was opened in 1998 by the original Airdrieonians F.C., who were returning to Airdrie four years after leaving their previous ground, Broomfield Park. The name of the stadium derives from Airdrieonians' original name, the club having been founded as Excelsior F.C. in 1878. Originally known as the Shyberry Excelsior Stadium for sponsorship reasons, the stadium is also sometimes unofficially referred to New Broomfield, after the former Airdrie ground. Following the liquidation of the original Airdrieonians in 2002, the Excelsior Stadium became home to the new Airdrie United F.C.; they subsequently revived the Airdrieonians name. In addition to Airdrie, the Excelsior Stadium has hosted a number of other teams. Glasgow City of the Scottish Women's Premier League used it as their main home ground from between 2014 and 2017. Queen's Park temporarily shared the ground from 2013 to 2014. Glasgow City played home games at the ground on a regular basis from 2014 to 2017, and previous to that for matches in European competition. Both Queen of the South (in 2008) and Motherwell (in 2009) have used the ground for European fixtures. It has also hosted the final of the Scottish Challenge Cup twice. (en)
