Celtic Park is the home to Celtic Football Club and is the biggest stadium in Scotland.
Known to their fans as either Parkhead or Paradise, the stadium opened its doors on 20th August 1892 when Celtic took on the now defunct side Renton in a 4-3 victory. The club had originally played at another venue also named Celtic Park from 1888 to 1892 but left after the landlord increased the rent.
The stadium has went through may facelifts in its time and at one point in the early 1990s, there was plans in place to move out and build a new 52,000 seated stadium.
The arrival of new owner Fergus McCann put a stop to any move and he quickly put plans in place to instead upgrade Celtic Park in three phases which started in 1995 and ended in 1998.
This redevelopment cost £40 million and with a capacity of 60,411, meant it was the biggest club stadium in Britain at that time.
The club has hosted international matches as well as numerous cup finals and uniquely, it was also the first football stadium to have a press box.
