New Douglas Park
New Douglas Park, currently known as the SuperSeal Stadium for sponsorship purposes, is a football stadium in Hamilton which serves as the home of Scottish Premiership side Hamilton Academical. It takes its name from Douglas Park, the club's former stadium.
Construction of the stadium was completed by Ballast Nedam in 2001.[dead link] The pitch was converted to artificial FieldTurf in 2004. After Hamilton was promoted to the Scottish Premier League in May 2008, the artificial surface had to be replaced by grass due to league rules. In addition to the turf replacement, a temporary stand was erected in March 2008 to bring the stadium's capacity up to the league requirement of 6,000 all seater.
At the beginning of season 2013–14 Hamilton returned to an artificial playing surface.
In July 2016 it was announced that as part of a £750,000 sponsorship deal, New Douglas Park would be renamed the SuperSeal Stadium after a deal was agreed with Glasgow-based home improvements company SuperSeal.
