Sport in Scotland
Glasgow and Scotland as a whole is a country that loves sp0rt. We’re a country with some of the most fantastic scenery in the world. We’re also a country that’s also provided the world with several sports stars too. It might be the passion that we have as a culture for sport or the landscape that enables us to be outside (on the good weather days). Whatever the answer may be, it’s true that we’re a country with a love for every sport.
Around the world many think that Scotland invented many sports. The likes of Hockey, Golf and Rugby all started in Scotland. Some even think football was invented in Scotland. Sadly it wasn’t but the first ever English match was refereed by a Scotsman and the first international game played by in Partick, Glasgow. The city of Glasgow is home to one of the biggest football teams in the world, Glasgow Rangers.
