Extra stadium info – Ibrox Stadium

In 1902, a disaster occured at the stadium during a match between the national football teams of Scotland and England. Various people died after a terrace collapsed. Hundreds of people were injured because of the disaster. Despite the collapse, the match was resumed after a break. The stand was designed by Archibald Leitch. He was concerned about the maximum capacity of the stadium before the football match started. Rangers Football Club have been tenants of the Ibrox Stadium since 1899. They are among the major sports clubs in Scotland. The Rangers won their 50th Scottish top-flight league title in 2003. Their arch-rivals Celtic had 38 league titles at that moment. In 1939, the stadium’s record attendance of 118,000 was set in a football match between the Rangers and their arch-rivals Celtic.
