Kick-off time changes for Celtic’s Premiership trips to Pittodrie and Fir Park

Some amendments to kick-off times for a few upcoming Celtic fixtures to report to you this afternoon. Celtic’s trip to Pittodrie to play Aberdeen on Sunday 25 October (previously scheduled for Saturday 24 October) has now been brought forward from a 3pm kick-off time to a noon kick-off to accommodate Sky Sports and there’s a change to kick-off time for the game against Motherwell a few weeks late.

Before heading to Aberdeen, Celtic will play theRangers at Celtic Park on Saturday 17 October (kick-off 12.30pm), then will take on AC Milan on Thursday 22 October (kick-off 8pm).

After the Premiership match at Pittodrie, Celtic make the short trip to northern France to take on Lille in the Europa League on Thursday 29 October, this one has a 5.55pm kick-off. Incidentally these Europa League Group stage matches are all on BT Sport.

Then its a visit to Hampden For Celtic on Sunday 1 November, this time to play Aberdeen in the pandemic delayed Scottish Cup semi-final. This vital match has a 2.30pm kick-off and is shown on Premier Sports.

Sparta Prague are the visitors to Celtic Park on Thursday 5 November, kick-off time 8pm and the game will be shown live on BT Sport.

Then it’s the shorter trip for the Celtic team to Fir Park to play Motherwell, now on Sunday 8 November and this one has also seen the kick-off time change from 3pm to midday, again at the request of the SPFL’s subscription broadcast partner, Sky Sports.

Next up is yet another international break before Celtic return with a visit to Easter Road scheduled for Saturday 21 November with a 3pm kick-off. You’d imagine that this one will be pushed back to suit Sky Sports and is more likely to have a lunchtime kick-off the next day.

On Thursday 26 November we’ll be switching back to BT Sport to watch Celtic take in Sparta Prague in the Czech capital, as in the Lille match this one kicks off at 5.55pm.

Don’t worry, you’ll be able to see all of these games if you have your Paradise Pass or a subscription to Celtic TV, and subscribe to Sky Sports, BT Sport and Premier Sport.
