Stark’s Park is the home of Raith Rovers, and is situated in the south of Kirkcaldy.
There are four stands at Stark’s Park:
- The Turnbull Hutton (Main) Stand is the oldest, and sits in the southeast corner of the site. The main stand houses the administration offices and player facilities.
- The Penman Family (South) Stand is one of the two larger stands, and houses the home support.
- The McDermid (North) Stand is directly opposite, and is normally used to house away support.
- The Railway Stand/SM Lighting Stand runs down the length of the pitch, with some seating available towards the north end.
Access to all stands is via Pratt Street. The McDermid and Railway Stands is accessible through the North entrance. The Turnbull Hutton and Penman Family Stands can be accessed via the south entrance (up the ramp).
Travelling to Stark’s Park
By Train: Kirkcaldy Railway Station is situated to the north of the stadium and within easy walking distance (approximately 1/2 mile) of the stadium. On leaving platform 2, walk onto Whyte Melville Road towards the Railway Bridge then turn right and continue towards Beveridge Park Roundabout. Thereafter continue onto Abbotshall Road to Pratt Street.
By Car: From A92, leave dual carriageway at Kirkcaldy West, take the 3rd exit signposted A910 Town Centre and continue on that route to Kirkcaldy Railway Station. The train station car park is available for use and can be accessed from exit 2. There is additional but limited parking at Beveridge Park Car Park. To the south of the stadium, there is significant public and on street parking in and around the esplanade. If parking on local streets, patrons are asked to park responsibly and be aware of some local restrictions. Depending on the anticipated crowd, Pratt Street may be closed to traffic at least 30 minutes prior to kick off.
By Coach: Supporters coaches can be accommodated in the Beveridge Park car park (40 spaces) and on the esplanade. There is no general drop off facility at the stadium due to restricted access. Patrons using public transport can exit Kirkcaldy Bus Station and make their way via High Street to Links Street and thereafter arrive at Pratt Street South.
Ticket pricing varies depending on the type of game. You can view a general list of prices here, which applies to league games, but ticket information and prices is usually published as an article on the website the day before the game.
Entering the Ground
For most games, adults can proceed directly to the turnstiles and pay with cash. Concession tickets must be purchased at the ticket office before proceeding to the turnstiles. For the South and Main stands, the ticket office is on the side of the Main Stand. For the North and Railway Stands, there is a standalone ticket office sitting behind the North Stand.
If you use a wheelchair, please purchase your ticket at the ticket office, then proceed to one of the gates for disabled supporters. These are at the sides of the stands, to the left of the turnstiles on both the North and South Stands. On the North Stand, it is by the main road. On the South Stand, go past the other turnstiles and you’ll find the gate at the far side.
There are a few blue badge spaces available at the rear of the North (Val McDermid) Stand which are offered on a first-come-first-served basis. Any special drop off arrangements should be made directly to the club prior to match day (01592 263 514)
There are toilets within the stand – there is a door on the side of the stand, next to the gate you entered from.
Inside the Ground
All four stands have catering and toilet facilities.
The Main Stand has male toilets at the foot of the staircases, next to the entrance doors. There is a female toilet outside the Raith Suite – at the south end of the stand.
There are two shops at Stark’s Park. One is within the South Stand, available on match days. The other is next to the ticket office, on the corner of the Main Stand – open office hours (usually Mon-Fri 9am-4pm) and on match days.
