The Old Showground was the original stadium Scunthorpe United and had been built in 1867. The club moved to its new home Glanford Park in 1988. The site was sold to Safeway who built a store on the site. The store was subsequently sold to Sainsbury's. The site of the centre-spot was highlighted by a plaque in front of the delicatessen counter (however this was later removed and all that remains of the site's former use is a plaque by the entrance)

From the White City Stadium, once home of Queens Park Rangers, to Bristol Rovers ground Eastville, each of these grounds is illustrated with an historic shot recording the ground as it once looked.
