Ibrox Stadium is one of the old football grounds in the UK. The fine design you can see on the Bill Struth Main Stand, is by famous stadium architect Archibald Leitch.
Leitch design many famous stadiums in the the UK. Of those stadiums, the Arsenal Stadium (Highbury) is probably one of the most similar to the facade of Rangers Govan based home. Others include famous stadiums like Anfield and iconic grounds such as Craven Cottage, which has maintained it's traditional feel for all these years to the present day.
The original Celtic Park facade was also designed by Archibald Leitch, but this building is no longer standing. In the 90s, the Parkhead club completed the rebuild of their new stadium which is the biggest club stadium in Scotland.
In this illustration, you can see the view that those facing the main stand of Celtic Park would see on the new walkway which was built for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
One of the most legendary arena in global football, Hampden Park is thought to be first integrated in 1903 then restored throughout the 1990's with the South Stand being torn down to the ground and re-built.
One of the really unfamiliar truths is Hampden Bowling Club, in Crosshill, Glasgow, remains on the 1st Hampden Park constructed in 1873. This is the world's initial purposefully built international football ground as well as where the "Scotch Professors" established the modern-day passing game of football and also exported it to the globe. This brand of football is currently played or watched by 3.5 billion people. Our mission is to ensure this unknown fact is screamed from the roofs; Scotland did indeed create the modern-day game and 1st Hampden offered the layout for every single football arena that followed it.
Not long after, the arena came to be also tiny for Queens Park, as well as they set regarding moving somewhere else. Cathkin Park became residence to Third Lanark, a group that completely restored the stadium; changing the name from Hampden Park to New Cathkin-Park (as they had already played at a Cathkin Park not much away). With the reconstruct, the stadium can seat up to 50,000 followers.
In 2018, an offer was produced the SFA to acquire Hampden from Queen's Park upon the expiry of the lease in 2020 for a charge of ₤ 5 million, with the club to enhance Lesser Hampden as well as play their matches there. In November 2019 the club revealed strategies to redevelop Lesser Hampden.
