New stadium effect

Ayresome Park had been Middlesbrough's home for 92 years before Boro moved into the Riverside Stadium in 1995.

The move to the new £16m ground has been an incredibly positive one, both on and off the pitch. The much bigger stadium led to a massive increase in fans through the gate, with the average attendance more than doubling from 14,546 to 30,955 - an increase of some 113%.

Results on the pitch improved dramatically too - the club spent just one of the last 10 years at Ayresome Park in the top flight, compared to 9 out of the first 10 seasons at the Riverside (including two top 10 finishes). Overall, the average league position improved from 30th to 13th.
