About Ibrox Stadium
Ibrox Stadium has a capacity of 50,817, making it the third-largest football stadium in Scotland behind Celtic Park and Hampden Park. There’s been a stadium on this site since 1899, formerly known as Ibrox Park. It was almost entirely rebuilt after the Ibrox disaster of 1971, in which 66 football fans died, and the new stadium was opened on 19th September 1981 with an Old Firm game between Rangers and Celtic. It continued to be renovated and updated over the years and was renamed Ibrox Stadium in 1997.
