The Glasgow Cup, in its heyday before the Second World War, attracted attendances larger than those for the corresponding League games between the six clubs who competed for the impressive Victorian trophy. Even as late as the 1970s, matches between Rangers and Celtic in the competition drew crowds of between 32,700 and 70,500.
