Visit the epic Celtic Park

Celtic Park is the largest stadium of Scotland. This wasn’t the first stadium where Celtic played in; they first played on another location. It probably won’t startle you, but the record attendance at the stadium was measured during the legendary Old Firm, which is played between Celtic and Rangers FC. Many important and big matches were hosted at Celtic Park and not solely football matches. Hurling matches and track cycling matches also took place at the stadium. Great artists like The Who and U2 gave concerts at the stadium, as well.

Celtic Park’s history

The new ground where Celtic would play after 1892 was a great spectacle. A journalist stated that Celtic departed a graveyard and entered a paradise. That’s where the nickname Paradise comes from. Another journalist said this was the best ground of Great-Britain. Celtic received a lot of fans because of this, and, from the beginning, every match was packed. An arson destroyed a great part of the north stand. A grand renovation took place in 1829 and the club had to move temporarily. The stadium was renovated several other times and turned into the stadium we know today.
