Useful Information for Your Visit to Celtic Park
Located close to Glasgow city centre, Celtic Park is one of the most popular stadiums in the United Kingdom, and the second busiest in term of attendance per match. You need not worry, though — here are some useful tips.
Located outside of Glasgow, Celtic Park is served directly by several bus lines, and is within 10 to 15 minutes’ walk of Glasgow's central rail station.
Is it your first time at Parkhead? Make sure to learn some of the terminology used by Celtic supporters. The stadium's east stand is named Lisbon Lions, after the 1967’s Celtic team that won the European Cup. The west stand is called Jock Stein, dedicated to the legendary former coach who trained the Lisbon Lions and won nine consecutive Scottish League Championships.
3. A range of events
Celtic Park, the Scotland national football team's home venue, has hosted various UEFA Euro games. The venue can also be converted for other athletic events, such as the Commonwealth Games and rugby matches. Music concerts are regularly held there, too.
