Global Energy Stadium
Club: Ross County FC | Opening: 1929 | Capacity: 6,541 seats
History and description
Global Energy Stadium, better known as Victoria Park, was built in 1929 at the same time when Ross County got formed out of predecessor Dingwall Victors.
Over its history, Victoria Park remained a very modest ground with a record crowd reported to be 8,000 for a Scottish Cup match against Rangers in 1966.
In 2012, when the club promoted to the SPL, Victoria Park could only hold 2,700, which meant it had to get expanded. As a result a new all-seater stand got built behind the goal and the east stand got extended over the entire side.
At the same time, the stadium got renamed Global Energy Stadium.
