The massive Ibrox Stadium

The massive Ibrox

Scotland is another country that has some really impressive football venues. You can visit if you want to wager on all matches played on them. One of the most iconic stadiums of this kind is Ibrox Stadium.


Opened in 1899, this facility serves as the home of Rangers F.C. Located in the city of Glasgow, it has a capacity of approximately 50 thousand spectators. This makes it the third largest stadium in the country behind Celtic Park and Hampden Park. The 1xBet website is always available for those who want to wager on great matches played in Scottish football.

Building a new home for Rangers

Rangers is one of the oldest football teams in Scotland. After being established in 1872, during its first years it played its matches in many places throughout the city of Glasgow, without a permanent place. Right now you can watch live matches today on 1xBet, and also watch all matches played by this Scottish team.


Some of the places that Rangers used during that period included:


  • Burnbank;
  • the Clydesdale cricket ground;
  • and Cathkin Park.


Due to the importance of the team, it was clear that it could no longer be using stadiums all across Scotland. For this reason, the first plans to build a new, permanent home for the team began to emerge. At this moment you can watch live matches today on the 1xBet website, and take advantage of its multiple additional features to make fantastic live wagers. Eventually, Ibrox Park was opened in 1899.

A huge redevelopment

Sadly, Ibrox has seen two major disasters during its history. They took place in 1902 and 1971. After the second one, which was largely attributed to problems with its design, the stadium was completely renovated. You can also wager on virtual sports by visiting, where punters can also wager on football matches.


The original design of the Ibrox Stadium was an oval-shaped stand that surrounded the field. However, due to the issues that led to the 1971 disaster, a team of architects decided to completely demolish those stands. A new, rectangular-shaped set of stands was built around the field. The design is similar to the one seen at the Westfalenstadion, which is the home of Borussia Dortmund.

Since then, the Ibrox Stadium has continuously served as the home of Rangers F.C. Also, it has hosted a few matches of the Scottish national team when Hampden Park has been unavailable. All matches of Rangers and the Scottish national side can be wagered on the 1xBet online bookmaker.
