Description:
Tynecastle Stadium is a football stadium situated in the Gorgie area of Edinburgh, Scotland. The stadium currently plays host to the home matches of Scottish Premier League team Heart of Midlothian. In the 2007-08 season and 2008-09 seasons, Tynecastle was voted as having the best atmosphere in Scotland's top division in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League Fans' Survey.

Tynecastle has a seating capacity of 17,420, which makes it the eighth largest stadium in Scotland behind Murrayfield, Celtic Park, Hampden, Ibrox, Pittodrie, Easter Road and Rugby Park.

History

Early years

Hearts moved to the then peripheral Gorgie area from central Edinburgh in 1881. This pitch stood on the site of the present-day Wardlaw Street and Wardlaw Terrace. Five years later, with the city continuing to expand, tenements replaced the old ground and Hearts moved to a New Tynecastle, the present ground, on the other side of Gorgie Road. Hearts staged a challenge match against Bolton Wanderers to inaugurate their new home, the first visitors being defeated 4-1.

In 1892 Tynecastle hosted its first international fixture, against Wales. Scotland won 6–1 but only 1,200 fans watched because a snow storm had crossed the city and many assumed that the game would be postponed. 1892 also saw Tynecastle provide a roof on the original "South" stand.
