Ibrox Stadium (Glasgow)

Ibrox Stadium

Ibrox Stadium has been the home of Rangers F.C. since it opened in 1899. With a capacity of just over 50,000 the venue is the third largest football stadium in Scotland.

Rangers played their first match at the new Ibrox on the 30th December 1899, defeating Hearts 3-1. Known as Ibrox Park until 1997, the venue hosted numerous Scottish Cup Finals and Scotland international matches in the early half of the 20th century. Capacity reached its peak in 1939 when a British record crowd of 118,567 attended a league match with Celtic.

The 1971 Ibrox disaster, in which 66 people unfortunately died led to a huge redevelopment of Ibrox.

Although the majority of Scotland internationals and Scottish Cup Finals are now played at Hampden Park, Ibrox did take over hosting these events whilst Hampden was redeveloped in the 1990s.

Ibrox also hosted the Rugby Sevens event at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, with South Africa defeating New Zealand in the Final to win Gold.
