Celtic get Scottish Cup ticket boost

St Johnstone have decided to stand by their decision to allocate three stands of McDiarmid Park to Celtic supporters ahead of the Scottish Cup Quarter Final at the start of March.

Celtic were given the North Stand, East Stand and Ormond Stand ahead of the 3-0 victory at the end of January and the Perth club have decided to continue their trial of maximising profits for Tommy Wright’s side.

The club’s new Head of Football Operations, Kirsten Robertson, has confirmed that the arrangements will remain the same as Celtic will be allocated 7000 briefs for the Sunday 3pm kick-off.

Tickets are priced at £25 for an adult for the clash, that will also be shown on Premier Sports. The decision could lead to increased gate revenue for both clubs.

Celtic beat Partick Thistle and Clyde to make the Quarter-Final and know that a win in Perth stands between them and a Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden. The game comes after the Europa League second-leg with Copenhagen at Celtic Park so will prove to be a tough test for Neil Lennon’s team as the Saints appear to be putting an impressive run of form together.

Earlier, The Celtic Star had discussed whether teams would continue to accept empty seats at their stadiums or take St Johnstone’s lead and maximise their revenue from matches involving Celtic.
