Past ground-sharing agreements have also seen Firhill Stadium act as a temporary home for two more football clubs, Clyde and Hamilton Academicals.

Firhill was also a venue for the 2000 Rugby League World Cup.

This traditional Scottish football ground was previously known as Firhill Park.

The current capacity of the stadium includes 10,887 seats comprising of three seated stands, with no standa st the south end of the ground.

On the west side The Main Stand was the first to be constructed at Firhill in 1927 was built with an original capacity of 6,000, but now holds somewhere closer in the region of 2,900 seats on the rare occasion it is open.

On the east side the cantilevered Jackie Husband Stand was constructed in 1994 with a capacity of 6,263 and is named after former Thistle player Jackie Husband. This is now the main stand for home fans.

On the north side is the newest stand, the North Stand, built in 2002 (extended in 2003) to meet the Scottish Premier League criteria on stadium capacity, which stated at the time that member clubs must have 10,000 seats in their ground; this criteria was changed at a later date to only 6,000 seats.

On the south side the City End awaits redevelopment. Planning for a new development is ongoing. The grassy bank at the City End has come to be known by the fans as “The Bing”.

The record attendance for a football game at Firhill was the 1926 Scotland v Ireland international: 55,000 people.

The record attendance for a Partick Thistle game at Firhill was set against Rangers in 1922: 49,838 people.
