    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.

      The Celtic Football Club is a professional football club based in Glasgow, Scotland, which plays in the Scottish Premiership. The club was founded in 1887 with the purpose of alleviating poverty in the immigrant Irish population in the East End of Glasgow. They played their first match in May 1888, a friendly match against Rangers which Celtic won 5–2. Celtic established itself within Scottish football, winning six successive league titles during the first decade of the 20th century. The club enjoyed their greatest successes during the 1960s and 70s under Jock Stein when they won nine consecutive league titles and the 1967 European Cup.
      Celtic have won the Scottish league championship 49 times, most recently in 2017–18, which was their seventh consecutive championship. They have won the Scottish Cup 38 times and the Scottish League Cup 17 times. The club's greatest season was 1966–67, when Celtic became the first British team to win the European Cup, also winning the Scottish league championship, the Scottish Cup, the League Cup and the Glasgow Cup. Celtic also reached the 1970 European Cup Final and the 2003 UEFA Cup Final, losing in both.
      Celtic have a long-standing fierce rivalry with Rangers, and the clubs are known as the Old Firm, seen by some as the world's biggest football derby. The club's fan base was estimated in 2003 as being around nine million worldwide, and there are more than 160 Celtic supporters clubs in over 20 countries. An estimated 80,000 fans travelled to Seville for the 2003 UEFA Cup Final.
