Celtic Football Club
The Celtic Football Club, based in Glasgow, was founded in 1887 and plays in the Scottish Premier League, their first game being in 1888. Their main, long-standing rivalry is between them and the Glasgow Rangers, who were established some 15 years earlier. The two rivaling clubs are known collectively as the 'Old Firm'.
The Celtic Football Club are definite winners, being Scottish League Champions 44 different times, most recently in the 2012-14 season. They are also 35 time winners of the Scottish Cup and have claimed the Scottish Leauge Cup 14 times. Not to mention their 5-part winning glory in 1967, when not only did they win the Scottish League Championship, the Scottish Cup, the Scottish League Cup, and the Glasgow Cup, but also became the first British team to win the European Cup! This impressive team also got through to the 1970 European Cup Final and the 2003 UEFA Cup Final.
The Celtic F.C colours today stand as simple, yet famous green and white hooded tops, though originally, for their first season, they wore white tops, black shorts and black & green socks. This changed in the next season to green and white vertically striped tops, which they stuck to for 14 years, before changing to the colours we know and love today.
The Celtic Football Club is not all just about football - they are also a very charitable team and club. They were initially founded to raise money for the poor in the East End of Glasgow and the club still retain strong charitable traditions today - raising £300,000 for the humanitarian crisis in East Africa in 2011, as well as holding charity events for Breast Cancer care and the Yorkhill Hospital.
