Ibrox Stadium
Scotland

Home to Glasgow Rangers Football Club, who are current Scottish Premier League Champions and extended their world record to 54 national titles, in the process.

It is one of only a few stadia that have been awarded a 5-star status by UEFA, with an all seated capacity of 51,082.

The statue in front of the stadium is a tribute to the 93 supporters who have perished in three disasters that happened at the 'old' stadium, which was a steep banked, oval, standing terracing.

This stadium was built between the late 1970's, in various stages, till it was  finally completed in 1991, with the addition of the top tier on the Main Stand.

Ibrox stadium still holds the British record attendance for a league game, when 118,567 supporters watched Rangers beat their arch-rivals Celtic 2-1, on January 2nd 1939.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
