Ibrox Stadium is an all-seater football stadium, located in the southern area of the River Clyde at Ibrox in Glasgow, built in 1997. It is one of the largest football stadiums in the UK, and the third largest footballstadium in Scotland. It mainly hosts Scottish Domestic Cup,and serves as a stamping ground of Rangers FC and temporarily used by Scotland National Football Team when their home ground Hampden Park went under renovation for a passage of time. The stadium was formerly termed as Ibrox Park, but after the disaster of 1902 and 1971, it was reconstructed in a better way and renamed as Ibrox Stadium. The original vast bowl-shaped terracing was replaced with three-level rectangular stands that are known as Sandy Jardine (north), Copland Road Stands (East), Bill Struth Main (south) and Broomloan Road (west). A bronze statue of John Greig MBE (who is regarded as the “Greatest Ranger”) has been established outside. It has also hosted the mesmerizing performances of artists such as Frank Sinatra, Simple Minds,Billy Joel, Elton John and Rod Stewart.
The stadium hosted the 1980 World Championship's boxing match between Howard Davis and Jim Watt.
In 1983, the venue hosted the Centenary Celebrations of the interdenominational Christian youth organization "The Boys' Brigade" (BB).
It is the home ground of Rangers FC since 1899.
In 1917, King George V came to the stadium to thank "Rangers" for their sincere efforts in World War I.
The Rugby Sevens event of 2014 Commonwealth Games was held at the stadium for the fifth time since it has started.
