Scottish Champions Glasgow City have announced their return to Glasgow and to their former home of Petershill Park.
The ten in a row SWPL winners have played for the past 3 years at the Excelsior Stadium in Airdrie, but took the recent decision to return to Petershill Park and will play their remaining SWPL fixtures at the north of Glasgow venue along with their Champions League upcoming tie against Kazakhstan Champions BIIK-Kazygurt.
Commenting, Club Manager Laura Montgomery said, “To be honest, we never really wanted to leave Petershill, but at the time, the pitch no longer conformed to UEFA standards and we saw little benefit in playing Champions League games at one venue and our domestic games at another. The Excelsior is a terrific stadium, but as a Glasgow club, our preference is to be playing in our home City and Petershill now not only has a fantastic newly installed pitch surface it also has good transport links which helps fans attend matches. The smaller venue also helps build some of the best atmosphere the team has ever played in front of.”
Montgomery will be hoping the club can return some memorable European nights at Petershill Park when they take on BIIK-Kazygurt in the last 32 of the Champions League on Thursday 12th October. Previous European matches at Petershill Park have sold out and the team have responded with some great performances.
