Cappielow – stadium description

Though seems very modest today, this is quite a piece of history for Scottish football. Serving residents from 1879 (!), it hosted the Scotland-Wales international in 1902 and was the sight of domestic supremacy struggles. This was the case in 1922, when Greenock Morton fought Celtic in front of record crowd of 23,500 people (half of today's population of the stadium).

Obviously, it underwent many renovations, getting a new covered main grandstand in 1931, first floodlight in 1958 and a renewed north end in 1978.

In 2012 it was one of the venues holding U17 Euro.
