    Dens Park or its name new name due to a sponsorship deal, The Kilmac Stadium at Dens Park has been the home to Dundee since 1899 following the clubs move from Carolina Port.

    The record attendance at Dens Park occurred in 1953 against Rangers when a massive 43,024 supporters fill the stadium.

    Th main stand was designed by Archibald Leitch and was opened in 1921. Apart from the South Enclosure and the Provost Road end having a roof put over it’s head, the ground had not seen much of an overhaul to it until 1999 when both stands behind the goal were demolished and new modern stands were built.

    The ‘Provie’ Road end was then renamed The Bobby Cox Stand and the TC Keay End, The Bob Shankly Stand. These stands were erected in just 82 days as the club battled to meet the Scottish Premier League’s new seat-capacity guidelines. The club were under pressure to meet the demands of the Premier League or face expulsion from the top-flight but in November 1998, the club were given the green light to procced with the construction early in the new year with the Scottish Sports Council Lottery Sports Fund and the Football Trust fronting half of the £2.6 million needed for the project.

    It had been announced in 2016 that our American owners had purchased land at Camperdown with intent to build a new stadium for the club. This was confirmed by them in early 2017 with the plans for the new layout being released to the public in September later that year.

      Celts beat Dee to close in on title
      Jozo Simunovic and Stuart Armstrong scored as Celtic beat Dundee 2-1 at Dens Park in the SPFL Ladbrokes Premiership to stretch their unbeaten run to 36 matches and move to within one win of their sixth consecutive title.

      Faissal El Bakhtaoui scored a late stunner for the hosts but it wasn’t enough for Paul Hartley’s men, who remain in eighth position.

      Defender Andrew Considine scored a hat-trick as Aberdeen hammered a dismal Dundee side to ensure Celtic must wait to be crowned Premiership champions.
      A win for Dee would have handed the title to Celtic, but their visitors put that prospect to bed in the first half.
      A Considine double and goals from Adam Rooney and Kenny McLean had Derek McInnes' men 4-0 up at the break.
      Ryan Jack hit the fifth before Niall McGinn tapped home and Considine completed his hat-trick.
      Aberdeen are 11 points clear of Rangers in third, while Dundee are eighth.

      Dundee lifted themselves off the bottom off the SPFL Ladbrokes Premiership as Mark O’Hara’s double gave them a confidence-boosting 2-1 win over Rangers at Dens Park. O’Hara’s brace came either side of a Josh Windass equaliser, but Graeme Murty’s men couldn’t avoid slipping to their second consecutive defeat.
