Football Without Fans – Tremonia Bhoys CSC

Tremonia Bhoys CSC

Tremonia CSC is based in Dortmund, Germany. There have been many strange explanations and translations for ‘Tremonia’ over the years. It is the Latin name for the city of Dortmund, which is not used too often nowadays.

Their CSC was and still is based on an online Facebook community ( Celtic Supporters Dortmund – Tremonia Bhoys) with almost 600 members. They have a hardcore that travels to games home, away, and abroad regularly. What was originally meant to be a means of communication to exchange travel plans and information between as few as ten Celtic-minded locals in 2003 soon became an international community, with supporters from various countries joining their ranks.

Their community is in no way an organised club or registered in any supporters association. It is strictly informal and unofficial, and therefore often a wee bit chaotic. They have managed to organise a small number of events in aid of local homeless shelters, foodbanks, the Kano Foundation, and other charities since 2018.

In 2018 and 2019, they held the Sommerfhest in Dortmund, and in 2022, they had the Corkfhest in Cork and Ballycotton in cooperation with their friends from Cork No.1 CSC.

Their local watering hole is Zum Zöllner pub in Dortmund. When in Glasgow, they are often in the Anchor Bar on The Gallowgate on matchday and also use several other known localities between Parkhead and The Merchant City.

Their community has a close link to the Borussia Dortmund fan base. Many of their members have been or are still active supporters of the local club as well. For many, the games between Celtic and Borussia in the 1980s and 1990s became the initial spark for their love for Celtic, but that is a story of its own, or a number of different stories, to be more accurate. Some of which can be found in a book titled ‘On the One Road,’ which they knitted together in 2019.
