The Falkirk Stadium is a football stadium in Falkirk in central Scotland, which plays host to the home matches of Falkirk. The club moved to the stadium in 2004 after Brockville Park was sold to supermarket chain Morrisons.

Only three sides of the ground, the west, south, and north, have been completed to date. The third stand (south) construction was started in February 2009, and it was completed in time for the 2009-10 season. This brought the capacity of the stadium (without the temporary (East)stand opposite the main) to around 8,000. This stand was officially open on 1 August 2009 in a game versus Royal Antwerp FC after a safety certificate was successfully granted.[1]

The stadium company has sought additional revenues by hosting Scotland rugby union youth level internationals.[2] Former Falkirk manager John Hughes has commented that the pitch has been damaged by playing rugby at the stadium.[2]
