Celtic’s Record Breaking Day – “Last Friday saw the most season tickets ever sold by the Club in one day, in our entire history,” Dom McKay

On his first official day as Celtic CEO Dom McKay has sent out a message to the Celtic support thanking them for the great welcome he has received and for the backing the club has received via overwhelming season ticket renewals as the rebuild under McKay and new Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou gets underway.

And that rebuild is going to be strengthened by the support shown by the season ticket holders. “I also want to take this opportunity to personally thank so many supporters for joining us again for the coming year by renewing Season Tickets for 2021/22. The response has been incredible and provides an excellent foundation upon which Ange and I can build,” McKay stated.

His formal assumption of the CEO role vacated yesterday by the outgoing Chief Executive Peter Lawwell after 17 years in charge was acknowledged by McKay.

“Today I formally take up my role as Chief Executive of Celtic Football Club and I want to thank all our supporters for the very warm welcome I have received so far,” McKay stated on the official Celtic website this morning.

“I want once again to thank Peter Lawwell for all he has done for the Club over such a long period of service and for the great support he has given myself in recent weeks.

“Last Friday saw the most season tickets ever sold by the Club in one day, in our entire history. We have recorded a fantastic level of interest in our season ticket renewals, and yet again we have the highest number of season ticket holders in the country backing the team for the season ahead, a phenomenal figure which is quickly approaching sell-out.

“We are all very much looking forward to welcoming our supporters back to Celtic Park very soon, and I’m encouraged by the recent Government guidance that indicates a possible return of fans to football in the coming few weeks. We will, of course, keep all our supporters updated as we get information from the Government and relevant authorities.

“The positive impact of having our supporters back at Celtic Park cannot be underestimated as we look to a new era, with our focus firmly set on a return to winning ways.

“We are about to embark on a new campaign both domestically and in Europe, and I’m really excited about the opportunities that lie ahead as we look to deliver the success that your incredible support so greatly deserves.

“I truly believe that in the appointment of Ange Postecoglou as manager, we can all look forward to entertaining and, more importantly, winning football in the seasons ahead and I look forward to sharing these moments with you all at Celtic Park.

“Once again I thank each and every supporter for such a warm welcome, for your unwavering support and for your continued commitment to Celtic Football Club.”
