Ground Profile

Ewood Park is a relatively impressive ground - built by Jack Walker's millions in the 1990's. The main stand and both those behind the goals feature state of the art grandstands that are of similar height and of roughly the same design, being two tiered, having a row of executive boxes and similar roofs. The ends are particularly impressive, both having large lower tiers. The only downside to the new stands is that the corners are open, although there is a superb Sony Jumbotron screen at one corner by the away end, which shows an excellent pre-match programme and the teams emerging from dressing rooms and onto the pitch. There is also an electric scoreboard at the Darwen End of the ground. The only stand that has not been re-developed is the C.I.S (Riverside) Stand that runs down one side of the pitch. This stand is a smaller single tiered stand and is not as pleasing to the eye as its modern counterparts. It also contains a fair number of supporting pillars and is partly covered (to the rear). Just to highlight how much the ground has changed, this was at one time the 'best' stand at Ewood Park. One other interesting feature of the ground, is the fact that the pitch is raised. This means that players have to run up a small incline, whilst taking throw-ins and corners.
