History and description

Celtic Park has been the home of Celtic Football Club since 1892. The club moved away from a nearby ground that was also called Celtic Park after a dispute over the rent. The official opening of Celtic Park took place on the 13th of August 1892, with the club's annual sports day. The first match was played a week later and saw Celtic beat Renton 4-3.

The stadium was originally oval-shaped with a cycling track, pavilion, and one wooden stand on the Janefield Street side. Four years later, in 1898, a new grandstand was built on the other side. This was the first ever double-decker stand at a football ground and increased capacity to over 50,000.

In 1904, the covered terrace that would be called "The Hayshed?" burned down and was replaced by a wooden Janefield Street Stand.

In 1927, the double-decker Grand Stand burned down. In 1929, a new Main Stand designed by Archibald Leitch was completed and replaced it. While the construction of the new Main Stand was still in progress, another fire encompassed the pavilion.

No further changes were made in the following decades and Celtic Park set its unofficial record attendance in 1938 when 92,000 spectators came to see the Old Firm. Official attendances have never been higher than 80,000, Celtic Park's maximum capacity.

In 1957, the Celtic End received partial cover and almost a decade later, in 1966, the Hayshed terrace received a new roof. At that time, the terrace was commonly referred to as "The Jungle?", because of its poor state and fanatic fans.

In the late 1960s, the Rangers End received cover, and shortly after, the Main Stand received an extensive refurbishment including a new roof. As a result of this work, capacity was reduced to 60,000 due to safety measures following the Ibrox disaster.

As the Celtic Football Club's financial situation became more precarious in the 1980s and early 1990s, no further changes were made to Celtic Park until Fergus McCann took over as president in 1994.

A share issue was conducted in order to raise funds, and a large redevelopment project began involving the demolition of both ends and the Jungle. Celtic was forced to play its 1994/95 home matches at Hampden Park as a result.

The South Stand was not completed until 2002. The North Stand of Celtic Park reopened in 1995 and the works continued on both ends which were completed in August 1998. The South Stand was not completed until 2002.

Celtic fans have used both Parkhead and Paradise as nicknames for Celtic Park.

How to get to Celtic Park

The Celtic Park is located in the Parkhead area of Glasgow, about two miles east of the city center. The stadium is on London Road. Leaving the M74 at Tollcross, and then following London Road west for almost 2 miles will bring you to the stadium. Continuing on London Road further west will bring you to Glasgow's city centre.

If coming from the M8, exit at junction 14 and drive south on Alexandra Park Street until reaching London Road. Turn left onto London Road, and follow until you reach the stadium on your left.

The buses 43 and 64 bring you from the city centre to the ground. To take the bus, get on Ingram Street at the bus stop and get off on London Road. The buses run about every half an hour, and the journey takes about 30 minutes.

Two buses pass the stadium on Gallowgate Road, just slightly further away. Both buses leave from Glasgow's Central Rail station.

One can take a train from Glasgow Central to either Dalmarnock or Bridgeton rail stations (a 5-minute journey). Both stations are about 10 to 15 minutes walking from Celtic Park.

Regular trains depart from Glasgow Queen Street for Bellgrove and Carntyne. The journey takes 5 minutes, but the walk to the stadium can take 20 to 30 minutes.

Address: Celtic Park, Glasgow, G40 3RE

Eat, drink, and sleep near Celtic Park

Celtic Park is located in a rather sparsely populated area which is a mix of some old industrial buildings and residential housing. There are a few pubs, most around Gallowgate north of the stadium, but eating and drinking in Glasgow's city center is likely a better option. The Merchant City area situated to the east of the central business district is well-located for drinking. This can be done by taking a bus, train or walking to the Argyle Street stop, or to other nightlife areas around Sauchiehall Street and Bath Street in the city centre, or in the West End.

There are no hotels close to Celtic Park, but several in the Merchant City area. The Brunswick Merchant City Hotel, Mercure Hotel, Rab Ha?s, and Holiday Inn Express are all affordable options that get good reviews. Click here for all hotels in the Merchant City area, and here for all hotels in central Glasgow.

If you arrive by car, the Premier Inn at the exit off the M74 may be a suitable option. It can even (just) be walked from to the stadium.

Celtic Tickets

Tickets for Celtic FC matches can be purchased online, by phone, at the Celtic Ticket Office at the stadium, or at one of the selected retail outlets. On the day of the match, the Celtic Ticket Office is open until kick-off. In recent years, attendances at Celtic matches have slightly dropped, and tickets will be easily available for most regular league matches.

Ticket prices for all stands except the Main Stand range from £26 to £31. Seats with restricted view can be found for a little less.

The seating plan can be found here. For more information, please call +44 (0) 871 226 1888 or email [email protected]

Dear agnes McCrann, I went for a tour of Celtic park on 24/3/2015 with two residents from the care home I work in. We enjoyed it so much that we also got to meet Bertie Auld and John Clark. Both men were very nice which was great for the residents. They came away very happy, and when we got back to the home they couldn't stop talking about it. I would like to thank everyone at Celtic park for a great day, especially the lady who gave us the tour. She was very nice and friendly, so once again, thank you! Keep up the good work.

I believe that the Stadium is great with a pleasurable atmosphere. Celtic fans are very loud. Tickets are available online and at the gate. I am pleased with my visit there.

I vowed never to return, but unfortunately Scotland are playing some games there this year. It's a question of going to the games and ignoring the venue. Perhaps by now the powers that be won't have the brass neck to sell tickets for seats that don't exist.

We weren't allowed to take our own drinks, and we were also given a player to speak with the kids. After all, children are our future of the next football generation. Just think about how much thought could've gone into the tour if Celtic supporters were given more time to participate in it.

Oh, how I remember watching Babe kick the fannies of the English on that glorious day, how the fire of the crowd burned in my heart for the rest of my youth. Those were good times, they know.

This is a paraphrase of a paragraph in formal tone. When I was but a wee lad, I went to Paradise with my mother. We had nary a penny between us, so we had to peek through the gates to watch. Oh, how I remember watching the great Babe kicking the fannies of the English that fine day, how the fire of the crowd burned in my heart for the rest of my youth.

Twas good times, they wot.

I went to Ibrox yesterday and found the atmosphere to be outstanding. There were the Mad Men below me.

I am a big fan of Ajax, but if it is necessary to lose this battle, I rather do so against Celtic. I will visit Celtic on short notice with my son. I am looking forward to it.
