The Old Showground was the home of Scunthorpe United for 89 years.
When Scunthorpe United left the Old Showground and moved into their brand new, purpose-built stadium at Glanford Park, they started a trend that other clubs were soon forced to follow.
After the Bradford City fire and the Hillsborough Disaster, clubs were forced to replace wooden seating stands, and bring in all-seater stadiums or lower their capacity to make grounds safer.
The last Scunthorpe United game took place here on 16th May 1988, as Scunthorpe United played out a 1-1 against Torquay United.
The Old Showground was demolished in 1988.
