Celtic FC is a professional football club in the East End of Glasgow, Scotland. It is one of the oldest brands in the world. Founded in 1887 by Irish immigrant, Brother Walfrid to help alleviate the poverty and desperation of 19th Century East End of Glasgow – Celtic has always been a symbol of “community, identity, pride and confidence”.
Fast forward to 2016, and that same sense of pride still lies at the heart of the club’s identity.
The Celtic Park stadium is proudly referred to as “Paradise” by Celtic’s vast legion of fans and is an enduring landmark in Glasgow’s history.
With a capacity of 60,411, it is the largest football club stadium in Scotland and the second largest in the UK (to Manchester United’s Old Trafford).
For most of our history, our traditional matchday uniform has consisted of a green and white horizontally striped shirt – affectionately known to all our supporters as “The Hoops” – white shorts and white socks.
Celtic FC have won the Scottish Premier League on 46 occasions, most recently in the 2014/15 season, the Scottish Cup 36 times and the Scottish League Cup 15 times. Our greatest season was 1966-67, when we became the first British team to win the European Cup, also winning the Scottish League Championship, the Scottish Cup, the Scottish League Cup and the Glasgow Cup.
Celtic FC also reached the 1970 European Cup Final and the 2003 UEFA Cup Final.
Celtic Football Club truly is a Club Like No Other.
