Stadium History

Celtic Park, the original home of Celtic FC, was swiftly constructed in just six months by volunteers after the club’s establishment in 1888. However, due to exorbitant rental fees that increased ninefold in three years, the club decided to relocate across the road to its current location.

The new stadium, hailed as a paradise by a journalist, earned its enduring nickname and, though initially consisting only of terracing, boasted an impressive capacity of 40,000 for a club only four years old, all thanks to volunteer efforts.

In 1898, Celtic Park achieved a historic milestone by becoming the first football ground to have a two-tiered stand, elevating its capacity to 63,000. Tragically, in 1927, a fire consumed this section of the ground, leading to the design of a new main stand by the renowned architect Archibald Leitch. The stand, completed in 1929, still stands today despite various renovations, including the change of its red brick facade in 1988. Interestingly, the World’s first two-tiered stand was replaced with a single tier, while other parts of the ground gained two levels.

The 1990s witnessed the largest redevelopment to date, with all three “non-Leitch” stands rebuilt as seating-only sections, pushing the capacity above 60,000 once again. Celtic Park, the largest football-specific venue in Scotland, frequently substitutes for Hampden Park in hosting national cup finals and national team games.
