The Celtic FC Youth Academy
Celtic FC was established in 1887, and played its first game in 1888. Celtic has won the Scottish League Championship on 42 occasions, most recently in the 2007/08 season, the Scottish Cup 35 times and the Scottish League Cup 14 times. Celtic's home stadium is Celtic Park, the biggest soccer stadium in Scotland, with a capacity of 60,832. In 1967, Celtic became the first British team, and only Scottish team, to win the European Cup: the players, subsequently known as the Lisbon Lions, were all born within a 30-mile radius of Parkhead highlighting the clubs commitment to developing their own players.
