    Cappielow Park, commonly known as Cappielow, is a football stadium in Greenock, Inverclyde, Scotland. It is the home ground of Scottish Professional Football League club Greenock Morton, who have played there since 1879. It has a capacity of 11,589, including 5,741 seats. The ground was formerly also shared by Clydebank F.C. between 1999 and 2002. Cappielow has staged one full international match, Scotland against Wales in 1902.

    Morton's stadium is Cappielow Park in Greenock, a ground the club has occupied since 1879. Cappielow's etymology is allegedly of Scandinavian origin, although details are sketchy. The current capacity is 11,589, with 5,741 of these being seated. In December 2008, Morton purchased the Reid Kerr sponsored east stand from local rivals St Mirren for £50,000, to improve the away end at Cappielow.

    The area currently behind the western goal (upon which the new stand will be built) is known as the Wee Dublin End, which contains non-backed bench seating, converted from the old terracing that once stood there. The main stand contains plastic bucket seating to replace the old wooden benches that were a fixture of the ground until the late 1990s. The "Cowshed" lies to the north of the pitch; formerly a fully terraced arena for both home and away supporters (complete with segregation fence down the middle), it is now for home supporters only, with much of the frontal terracing removed, and plastic bucket seats occupying its place.

    The segregation fence no longer exists, and the whole area is used by home supporters. Behind the eastern goal is the "Sinclair Street" end, with uncovered terracing.

    Flood Lights were first used at Cappielow for a league match against Third Lanark in 1958.

    From North

    From the M8 at Langbank follow the A8 into Greenock and into the 30mph zone of dual carriageway until you reach the the second set of traffic lights, then turn first left onto Sinclair Street. The Matchday Car Park entrance is directly on your left as you turn the corner. Parking charge on Matchday is £3.00. Please note that Sinclair Street is closed on matchday to vehicular traffic beyond the car park entrance. Proceed up Sinclair Street and the main entrance to Cappielow Park is on the righthand side before the railway bridge.

    From South

    Head north on the A78 towards Greenock. Follow the road past IBM and continue until the second set of traffic lights. Turn right onto Dunlop Street. Follow this road until it turns sharp left and goes downhill. Follow the road through the junction until you reach the traffic lights. You should now be facing the river. Turn right. Follow the main road through two roundabouts, and continue until you reach the Cappielow Industrial Estate. Cappielow Park is on the right hand side of the road.

    By Train

    From Glasgow Central alight the Gourock bound train service at Cartsdyke station. Not all trains stop at Cartsdyke, it is advised that you check the boards at Glasgow Central before boarding. Exit Cartsdyke Station onto Bawhirley Road, walk to the junction of Carwood Street and turn left following the road all the way down the hill until you reach a T-junction, turn left at the T-Junction under the railway bridge, the turnstiles for Cappielow Park are situated here.

    By Bus

    There are several buses from the Greenock Town Centre, with a frequency of approximately every 5 minutes. Services from Glasgow stop just outside the ground.

    And just in case you have to travel from a little further afield, Cappielow Park is only twenty minutes by car from Glasgow Airport!
