A HUGE Celtic support will roar our team on today at Hampden as they go for glory by beating Motherwell in the Scottish Cup Final to secure an historic double treble.
Demand for tickets among the Celtic support has been enormous and even the supporters associations have been restricted in the number of tickets that they have been allocated. Spare tickets are thin on the ground to say the least, ‘they’re like gold-dust,’ a committee member of the Affiliation of Registered Celtic Supporters Clubs told The Celtic Star this morning.
Yet Motherwell, who have acted sensibly throughout to ensure that there are no empty spaces in the National Stadium for today’s showcase final, will have a sizeable and vocal support behind the goals at the Mount Florida end of the stadium – although even in there you will notice a few sections of Celtic supporters.
Celtic opened up the ticket sale for the Cup Final to season ticket holders on the home ticket scheme who had attended the earlier rounds of the cup. This year, rather unusually in recent times Celtic had a series of home games as they made their way to Hampden for the semi final against Rangers.
Brechin, Partick Thistle and Morton were all taken care of with relative ease – poor old Brechin didn’t manage to win a game all season long so their day out at Paradise would have been a highlight in an otherwise miserable campaign.
It’s going to be a green and white Hampden in the Sun today and everyone of us fortunate enough to have secured a ticket – you know what you have to do – make as much noise for the Bhoys as you possibly can.
See you at Hampden…fingers crossed. COYBIG!
Have you got one of these? Beautiful Sunday should be celebrated all summer long…
The latest podcast is out today- it’s part 2 of the brilliant interview with Celtic’s SLO John Paul Taylor where he selects the games and the soundtracks of his own personal Celtic journey.
