The Dens Park is a Scottish football stadium in Dundee. It has a capacity of 12,085 spectators. The Dens Park was opened in 1899 and is one of the oldest stadiums in Scotland. It is the home stadium of FC Dundee.


The Dundee FC moved in 1899 from its previous venue Carolina port in the Dens Park. The stadium is located just 300 meters from Tannadice Park, home of city rivals Dundee United away at the Sandeman Street. Over the years, several renovations were carried out at the stadium. After climbing in the Scottish Football League in 1998, the stadium had to be adapted to the requirements of the League regarding the seating capacity. It was snatched up the two standing ranks from behind the gates and replaced it with grandstands, each with 3,000 plastic seats. The new ranks have been named after the former coach of the club, Bob Shankly (1959-1965), and former player Bobby Cox ( 1956-1968 ). The names of the tribunes were elected by the fans. In 2005, the court received a soil heating.
