Celtic’s Easter Road allocation revealed, Motherwell latest to cut our ticket numbers

Celtic have received an allocation of 3,591 tickets from Hibs for the Scottish Premiership match at Easter Road on Saturday 28 October, meaning that the Celtic support will have a full stand for the visit to Leith.

One way of looking at it is that it’s over 3000 more tickets than we have been given by Hearts who have reduced the travelling Celtic support to the bare minimum in our next match a week on Sunday at Tynecastle where the Celtic support has been allocated just 576 tickets. That you would imagine will be the maximum offered to Hearts when they visit Celtic Park later in the season.

Meanwhile after the two mini pitch invasions from travelling Celtic support in the recent 2-1 win Fir Park, Motherwell seem set to reduce the allocation to Celtic supporters even further closing sections at the front of their away stand the next time we are there. That’s while they prefer to keep the family section of their main stand empty rather than sell the tickets to Celtic supporters.

The Motherwell manager complained about the Celtic supporters entering the field of play during that dramatic finish to the game but failed to mention, never mind condemn his own supporters for doing the same thing. I suppose we did it twice!

16th December 2018, Easter Road, Edinburgh, Scotland; Ladbrokes Premiership football, Hibernian versus Celtic; the madness of Scottish football. Hibs could have easily doubled their money that day from the Celtic support but choose empty seats. They they moan that they don’t have the budgets to compete.

Incidentally the game at Easter Road is currently showing as a 3pm kick-off which means that unless that time changes the game will NOT be shown live on television, and Hibs will not be able to sell us their PPV.

Back in the day there was much less football on television but you could always go to the game, home or away. Now away tickets are increasing hard to come by and the game isn’t even going to be available to watch (legally) on TV.

  1. 3500 tickets for Easter Road is the full South Stand at Easter Road. Celtic have never been given “half a stand” there.

  2. Another nail in the coffin of Scottish football at a time when the sponsor has pulled the plug !!! I wonder why a company would want supporters in a stadium as part of their advertising and promotion, when empty stadia are a much better atmosphere and exciting to look at ?????

  3. Who writes this absolute nonsense. do some research.

    3,500 is the full stand.

    As for the comment under the picture “could have doubled their money but moan about budgets”

    So you saying another 1,000 fans in that stand would have had us competing for the title? What utter nonsense.

    Also it got more Hibs fans in, good.

    What would Celtic fans say if they turned up at Parkhead and were told “Sorry, you ain;’t getting in, we’ve let more Hibs fans in”

    Yeah, that’s what I thought.

  4. Someone needs to do their research. 3500 is the FULL south stand.

    We’d hope you’d be more thankful, seeing as if it wasn’t for us you’d be bootlicking rangers fans.
