Celebrating 15 years of Pride Park, your memories.

Pride Park Stadium was officially opened on 18th July 1997 by the Queen. Since that day the stadium has held many good memories for fans, here are supporters who contacted me today’s favourite memory at Pride Park.

Her Majesty The Queen, Prince Phillip, Jim Smith and Lionel Pickering tour the new Pride Park Stadium. Empics

Her Majesty opens the stadium back in 1997.

The main entrance at night.

The ground has a capacity of 33,597 but is reduced due to segregation.

Your memories-
