History and description

Celtic Park has been the home of Celtic since 1892. It is their only home ground and they have played there ever since they moved away from a nearby ground that was also called Celtic Park following a dispute over the rent. The new ground had a capacity of 8,000 and was situated on the site of the 1870’s Old Celtic Park.

The stadium was originally oval-shaped with a cycling track, pavilion, and one wooden stand at 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 Hayshed (a covered terrace) replaced the wooden Janefield Street Stand.

This time, the Main Stand was totally destroyed and had to be rebuilt in a new location.

No 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 never exceeded 80,000 at Celtic Park's maximum capacity.

In 1957, the Celtic End received partial cover and 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 also received cover and shortly after, the Main Stand got extensively refurbished, including a new roof. This reduced the capacity to 60,000 people due to safety measures following the Ibrox disaster.

Due to the precarious financial situation of Celtic in the 1980s and early 1990s, no further changes were made to Celtic Park until Fergus McCann took over in 1994.

Funds were raised through a share issue, and a large redevelopment project was started in which Celtic had to play its 1994/95 home matches at Hampden Park.

The North Stand at Celtic Park reopened in 1995 and construction continued on both ends until 1998 when it was completed.

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

How to get to Celtic Park

Celtic Park is located approximately two miles east of Glasgow's city center in the Parkhead area. If coming from the M8, exit at junction 14 and drive down south on Alexandra Park Street. 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. Take the bus on Ingram Street, and get off on London Road. Buses 43 and 64 run about every half an hour, and the journey takes 30 minutes.

The buses 61 and 62 pass the stadium on Gallowgate Road. Both buses leave from Glasgow's Central Rail station.

Alternatively, one can take a train from Glasgow Central to Dalmarnock or Bridgeton rail stations. Both stations are about a 10-15 minute walk from Celtic Park.

From Glasgow Queen Street, trains regularly depart for Bellgrove or Carntyne. The journey takes 5 minutes, but the walk to the stadium slightly longer (20 to 30 minutes).

Address: Celtic Park, Glasgow, G40 3RE

Eat, drink, and sleep near Celtic Park

The Celtic Park stadium is located in an industrial area with some residential housing. There are a few pubs around the stadium, but it's likely better to eat and drink in the city center of Glasgow. The Merchant City area in the east of Glasgow is conveniently located for drinking. From there, you can catch a bus or train (Argyle Street), or even walk to the stadium. Other nightlife areas are around Sauchiehall Street and Bath Street in the city centre, or in the West End.

There are no hotels near Celtic Park, but a few 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.

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

We enjoyed it so much that we also got to meet Bertie and John Clark, who were both very nice. This was great for the residents, who came away very happy. When we got back to the home, they couldn't stop talking about it. So I want to thank everyone at Celtic Park—particularly the lady who gave us the tour—for a great day. Keep up the good work.

I think the Stadium is great with a nice atmosphere. Celtic fans are very loud. Tickets are available online and at the gate. I'm pleased with my visit there.

I vowed never to return, but regrettably due to Hampden's injury Scotland are playing some games there this year. It is 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.

Unless the venue clears out its seats, it's going to be difficult to go to the games and ignore how they're being played in person. The powers that be may have realized by now that they can't sell tickets for fake seats, so the games will take place in an uncomfortable environment for many spectators.

We weren't allowed to take our own drinks on the tour, and maybe a player could speak a few words of wisdom to the kids. After all, children are our future of football generation. Just think about how much thought can go into the tour, when we supporters of Celtic spend so much money on merchandise.

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. Those were good times, they know.

I really enjoy going to Ajax, but if I have to lose this battle, I would rather do so to Celtic. I'm excited for the opportunity to visit Celtic soon; with my son.

I will be visiting Celtic very soon with my son. I am excited about it.
