Friday night football is back and we’re hoping for fireworks as Albion Rovers visit Ainslie Park this evening.


Brian Reid’s side inflicted an opening day defeat at Cliftonhill, with goals from Declan Byrne and Kyle Doherty getting us off to the worst possible start. Since then Rovers have found it fairly tough going, with six defeats in the nine matches since that opening day, and they find themselves sitting in seventh place in the table. Like us, they have made their way to the third round of the Scottish Cup, seeing off Brora Rangers of the Highland league in last weekend’s replay by a goal to nil, while their last League 2 outing was nearly two weeks ago, where they defeated Elgin City 2-0 at Cliftonhill.


Our matchday program is available to download here.


City will be in white shirts, shorts and socks while the visitors will be in all black this evening.


Tickets for the game are £14 for adults, with concessions £9. Tickets can be bought via Fanbase online right up to kick off by clicking here.

CONTACTLESS & Cash gates

Since our match with Kelty Hearts on 15th October, we can now accept card payments at the turnstiles too, so a contactless experience is now possible at Ainslie Park. Turnstiles will be in operation which accept both cash and card and we hope this, coupled with the option to secure your ticket in advance via FanBase will make coming to the match as convenient as possible.

We would politely remind those purchasing concessions tickets that proof of identification will be required on the day and our turnstile operators will be required to ask that you show the appropriate ID. We appreciate your cooperation in advance.


In line with the majority of clubs in our division and the wider SPFL, we are no longer streaming our matches. As restrictions have eased, our feedback suggests that fans would much rather be back in the ground than watching on the stream. Our YouTube channel will be showing highlights of all our matches, along with management and player interviews.


We would like to remind those visting Ainslie Park by car that parking within the Leisure Centre car park is extremely pressurised, given the Covid testing facility. Recently there have been various instances of vehicles being illegallly parked and blocking emergency exits and so on, so we would respectfully ask those bringing cars to park considerately and avoid blocking any access routes. It is imperative that emergency service vehicles can safely access the car park in the event of a situation arising either within the Leisure Centre of the Spartans Academy and we thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.

Team or supporter buses and coaches should not enter the leisure centre car park; please contact for drop off information.


Due to unforeseen circumstances our merchandise kiosk will not be open today, apologies however hopefully normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.
