Might need to reconsider my view that Wembley and the Dallas Cowboys stadiums are the best ones I've been in.

We could fill this one. It would be bouncing just like Wembley and the Dallas Cowboys......  :D             MMM! maybe not but we can try.  :)  Shouldn't upset any neighbours with rousing chorus of Oh when the saints.

STADIUM LAY OUT:
 


e. Fife Police list Bayview Stadium as having an official capacity of 1,974 with 987 seats in each end of the stand. The Stadium is fully wheelchair accessible with allocated areas for fans in wheelchairs at the front of the seating areas at each end.
Bayview Stadium is easily accessible both by car and by public transport. The official address of the ground is: Bayview Stadium, Harbour View, Methil, Leven, Fife KY8 3RW.

BY CAR:

The ground is situated on the sea front. At present you can use the Methil Power Station and it's very visible chimney as a guidance marker, although this may be demolished at some stage in the future.

If heading north or east then follow signs for Kirkcaldy. From Kirkcaldy take the A911 towards Methil and then the A915 towards Leven. Turn right onto the A955 then follow this road through Methil towards Buckhaven. This should take you along the sea front and the stadium should be visible up ahead. Turn left onto South Street (the B932) and then left again onto Harbour View Road. Parking for home fans is straight ahead and parking for visiting supporters will be on your left before you read the stadium itself.

If heading south from Dundee, follow the A92 towards Glenrothes. Once past the Tullis Russell roundabout, take a left onto the A911 towards Leven. At the Durievale Roundabout take the third exit onto the A915 and then follow the directions above.


BY BUS:

Buses from throughout Fife all operate to Leven and a local connecting bus will take you from Leven Bus Station to past the stadium. Buses from Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow also stop at Leven Bus Station.


BY TRAIN:

At present there is no train station in Methil or Leven. The nearest main train stations are at Kirkcaldy and Markinch. Both are around 6-8 miles away and you will need to get a connecting bus to Leven and then follow the directions above.

 

ADMISSION PRICES:
 


The admission prices for regular East Fife matches at Bayview Stadium for the 2008/09 season are as follows:

Adult = £13.00

Child = £7.00

OAP = £7.00

Parent & 1 Child = £17.00

Parent & 2 Children = £20.00

 

FOOD AND DRINK:
 


Sid's Bar is situated at ground level of Bayview Stadium. To enter go inside main entrance and turn left at reception. The bar is a public house and not a social club and can be frequented by all fans, no matter who you support!

For those wanting a drink away from the Stadium, the East Dock Bar at 242 High Street, Methil is a 10-15 minute walk away. The Bayview Bar on Kirkland Road and the Wellesley Inn on Wellesley Road are also popular choices of watering holes for fans for a pre match drink and bite to eat. The former is around a 20 minute walk from the stadium and the latter would require transport to the stadium upon leaving.

Inside the stadium there are pie stalls situated in both ends.

 

CLUB SHOP:
 


The Club Shop can be found in a portacabin outside the main entrance. Don't let the fact that it is a portacabin fool you as they carry a large and varied range of top quality stock. You're bound to find something for all your East Fife needs!

 

 

PROGRAMME:
 


The official matchday programme is currently produced by the East Fife Supporters Trust and is an excellent read. It costs £1.50 and is usually 44 full colour and glossy pages.

And they just beat Livingston. They will probably fancy their chances.

Ticket arrangements should be...

1. Season ticket holders.

2. Pay at the gate punters who keep Saturday's Falkirk game ticket stub.

3. Travel club bus users.

4. Members of SMiSA.

5. Members of the Fan Council.

6. Anyone with a Paisley postcode.

7. Glory hunters who only turn out for cup games.

8. Old Firm fans who adopt us as their 'wee team'.

9. Those in Div's Sin Bin.

Seem to remember a trip to Methil in the cup in the mid 80's maybe, it was a freezing cold day and a goalless draw, won the replay though. I'd take a repeat.

1-1 and 3-1 in the replay , the major cup story between the teams though was in '71 , went to 3 games 2x 1-1 draws then a 3-1 victory at LS with the famous Archie Knox hat trick. Most incredible thing about it was the aggregate crowd for the three games , over 24,000 !

We must have made a few quid in the Cup that season.Next round we were at home to the original rangers  (remember them?) in front of over 32000 fans.

The stadium can accommodate up to 1,980 spectators all of whom are seated in a single stand running along one side of the pitch. There are open areas for future expansion. In 2008 plans were announced to increase capacity with the erection of a covered terrace/stand at the sea end of the stadium. Due to the economic climate in 2009 these plans were put on hold.

The stadium's capacity was temporarily expanded to 4,700 for a Scottish League One match against Rangers in October 2013

 

=============

 

So, would they consider temporary expansion for this tie??
