The first non-European visitors to Rugby Park were Bangu (Brazil). Killie won 1-0 in front of an 18,166 crowd. This is the record attendance for a friendly game at Rugby Park.
Rugby Park was further enhanced by the building of a new West Stand, seating 4,200 compared to the old stand which held 1,900. A new enclosure in front of the stand had the standing capacity for over 2,900. New offices, dressing rooms and a treatment room were built within the new stand.
