Many Celtic supporters are of Irish Catholic origin and the club itself was formed in 1888 to provide funds for Irish immigrants in the late 19th century. This is why the team's colours are green and white.
Celtic fans have an excellent reputation throughout the world for good sporting behavior and were awarded the FIFA and UEFA Fair Play Awards in 2003 for their excellent conduct at the UEFA Cup Final in Seville.
Celtic form one half of the "Old Firm", the other half being Glasgow Rangers (a club which excluded all Catholics for 116 years before being threatened with expulsion from European competition if they did not end their sectarian signing policy).
