Owner description: Glasgow Tigers Speedway is Glasgow's only true motorsport venue. Glasgow Tigers compete in the Premier League of UK speedway and race every Saturday at 19:00 from March to October. There are also occasional midweek races. Speedway is a fast and exhilarating sport and involves motorbikes, with no brakes, whizzing around an oval circuit at speeds of up to 70 mph. Speedway is also a family sport where kids can get involved with the 'Growlers' Club' and get to meet Roary, our Tiger Mascot. Glasgow Tigers' facility is one of the best in UK speedway and has fantastic catering facilities, a bar and some great viewing areas. The stadium is also fully wheelchair accessible.

Have been going for a few years now but once you've caught the Speedway bug you will find it hard to stop going. Great family day out.

“Football? nah.. go to Speedway instead”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

Glasgow has been known for a long time as a footballing city, but over 60 years ago, Glasgow Tigers came into being and are still racing in Glasgow at Ashfield Stadium. Most weeks the action is between two clubs, Glasgow and a visiting team. Each team has 7 riders, 2 from each team ride against each other in each of the 15 heats. The acceleration on the bikes is faster than that of a formula one car. You get very close to the action being only a few feet away from the track when the riders are going round. Average meeting time is about 2 hours, so much better value than any football match. Lots of action, excitement and thrills fill every Sunday afternoon. If you haven't been along, why not? get your backside trackside. Facilities are all being modernised at the present and the new promotion have done an excellent job in what they describe as a work in progress. Cold food, hot food, souveniers, friendly crowd, riders are always willing to stop and talk to fans, sign autographs and pose for photos. Can't remember the last time police were needed at a speedway meeting. Great family entertainment. See you there soon.

“Great family sport”
Reviewed 22 January 2013 via mobile

Speedway racing is a fantastic sport for all the family. 15 races a meeting on bikes with no brakes at speeds of up 70mph. Car parking is available adjacent to the track for a small fee. The track at Glasgow is probably one of the most competitive racing strips in the Premier League.

If you like televised Speedway you will love live Premier League action.

“A good day out”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

First ever visiting this place and i thought it was a really good day out. Used a voucher from Groupon (to be honest i don't think i would have paid £16 each for an adult if i didn't have a voucher). The best place to stand is under the roofed stand cos you get to hear all the supporters shouting. That was just brilliant. Tried the takeaway food and it was quite nice althought he chips had a funny smell to them but the burger was tasty. Plus it was very reasonable priced. Only downfall i had was I WISH IT WAS ON LONGER. .

“Great Track, rubbish toilets”
Reviewed 9 June 2012

The track is great, so is the racing. It's well worth the money if you like Motorsport. Even if you don't it's worth a look.
