Celtic Park  

Celtic Park is the second largest club stadium in the United Kingdom.

Attracting 57-58,000 fans to every home game. Over the past decade Celtic are second only to Manchester United in terms of average attendance records in British football. The stadium is also occasionally used for concerts, and in the past even for large Catholic masses or Evangelical get-togethers (Billy Graham).

The figures for the highest attendance at Celtic Park are somewhat in dispute. There are newspaper records which give the attendance at the Celtic -Rangers game of January 1st 1918 as 92,000 but this is given as 52,000 elsewhere. The highest confirmed figure is 83,500 for the Celtic-Rangers Ne’erday game of 1938. Records of early attendances are incomplete and later attendance figures were variously inflated or deflated for other reasons.

Located in Glasgow’s east end Celtic Park is sometimes referred to by commentators as Parkhead, after the district of the city the stadium is located. The stadium has been situated on its current site since 1892.

Recent Developments

North Stand

More recently major reconstruction of the stadium began in 1994. Aside from the main stand, the entire old stadium was razed to the ground. A new North Stand was built while Celtic played for one season at Hampden Park. The East Stand (later renamed the Lisbon Lions Stand) followed in the 1996/97 season, and the Jock Stein Stand was completed for the beginning of the 1998/99 season.
