Archibald Leitch


Category B Listed

The magnificent south stand includes the oppulent main entrance to Ibrox with its offices, board room, trophy room and reception spaces. Leitch was the greatest stadium designer of his day and this stand, which originally had 10,000 seats, was the largest and most lavish ever built. The massive red brick frontage proclaims the club’s name. Internally the wood panelling is beautifully detailed and the decor is elegant rather than palatial. This stand, one of the great buildings in UK football, indicates the aspirations of a club which wanted to create the biggest and best stadium ever seen, without being vulgar.
