YOUR DERBY DAY ADVENTURE IN 2020/2021

In Glasgow, the historic and bitter rivalry between Celtic and Rangers is quite possibly the perfect embodiment of footballing hatred. Over the course of some 125 years, Scottish football has been largely conceptualized by the deep-seated hatred shared by Celtic and Rangers. The Glasgow derby commonly referred to as the Old Firm derby is one of the oldest and most complex rivalries in world football. When these two meet in the Old Firm, it’s not just about football. It’s about politics, religion, and differing social attitudes.

To call this one a mere disagreement between two religious divides would be to massively under-sell the British’ biggest derby: Old Firm between Celtic v Rangers is something else. The Old Firm may not have boast superstar names in the same manner as El Clásico in Spain, and may not quite match up to the illustrious spectacle of a Manchester derby, but its a rivalry every bit as fierce and exhilarating and deserves to be appreciated in the wider sphere of city rivalries. A match that should be on your football bucket list. Always wanted to travel to Glasgow with your group to experience the atmosphere during the Old Firm at Celtic Park? Experience the biggest game of the season between Celtic & Rangers FC.
