They were formed by cricketers and play at Rugby Park but it is football tickets you will need to see Kilmarnock FC play in the Scottish Premier League.

Despite a history dating back to 1869 – making them the oldest professional team in Scotland – Ayrshire-based Killie were not invited to join the country's top league until 30 years later. However they soon made their mark and won the Scottish Cup in 1920 and then again in 1929, when 114,708 spectators saw them defeat Rangers 2-0.
After a spell in the doldrums they finished runners-up in the Scottish league four times in the early 1960s before achieving a remarkable success in 1965 under the management of Rangers legend Willie Waddell. On the last day of the season they travelled to Edinburgh and beat league leaders Hearts 2-0 at Tynecastle to clinch the title on goal average – by just 0.042 of a goal.
Kilmarnock reached the semi-final of the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in 1967, but lost 4-2 over two legs to Leeds United. The club's last major prize came in 1997 when a Paul Wright goal was enough to beat Falkirk 1-0 in the Scottish Cup Final in front of 50,000 fans.
Famous players to have worn Kilmarnock's blue and white stripes include Willie Culley, Frank Beattie, Tommy McLean, Jackie McInally and Tommy Burns.
Their current squad for Scottish Premier League matches includes players from Finland (Alexei Eremenko), Italy (Manuel Pascali), France (Mohamadou Sissoko), Moroccoo (Mehdi Taouil) and Portugal (David Silva).
The record attendance for a match at Rugby Park was set in 1962 when 35,995 spectators saw the club lose 4-2 to Rangers in a Scottish Cup replay.
Currently the capacity of the modern all-seater stadium is 18,128.
