Celtic Fan Groups Set To Delay Season Ticket Renewals As Discussions Take Place For “Joined-up Approach”

Season ticket renewals were sent out this week and there was considerable backlash as supporters learnt that prices remain frozen for the new campaign, whilst the much anticipated “added value” takes the form of a £50 retail voucher, which is to be redeemed in the Celtic Superstore.

The sale of season tickets was always going to be tough after supporters paid hundreds of pounds to watch home matches on a stream throughout 2020/21. Combined with that Covid enforced frustration, the disappointment of finishing 25 points behind our rivals in the league, and the ongoing wait for the announcement of a new manager, has left many fans feeling dejected.

In contrast to the above, the club released a news story on their website today, thanking “thousands of season ticket renewers”. How many will join the renewers remains to be seen, but the Green Brigade don’t appear to be among them yet.

The Ultras group posted a Tweet this afternoon urging members of the North Curve (standing section) to hold off on renewals, whilst discussions take place among other supporter organisations to plan a united way forward.

Two groups closely aligned with the Green Brigade are Celtic Shared and The Celtic Trust. Both have had their say on social media, describing the club’s rejection of the share proposal as “extremely disappointing.”

We hope that a satisfactory accommodation can be reached between the club and supporters, so that fans can get back to enjoying themselves at the football soon. Any developments will be updated on this site and you can have your say on matters by becoming involved with democratic organisations such as those mentioned above, or by contacting the club’s Supporter Liaison Officer online.
