Matchday Pre-Match Pints now available at Celtic Park

Celtic yesterday announced that a licence for the sale of alcohol in the West Stand Concourse has been granted. So for tomorrow’s game against Kilmarnock alcohol will be sold from 11 am till 1 pm to fans looking to enjoy a pre-match pint, as kick-off will take place at 3pm.

Valid ticketholders will be able to enter the area via Gate WS57/58 and buy alcohol from 11 am. However, as kick-off draws closer, the area will be cleared at 1 pm, meaning that fans will have to re-enter the stadium via the turnstiles from 1.30 pm onwards.

Celtic have posted a picture of two Celtic fans showing off their pints in Paradise as this new drinks licence comes into effect starting at 11am tomorrow. The club stated on the official website:

“With kiosks open, seating areas available and live football on screen, we are pleased to further enhance our pre-match offering to supporters with the addition of a licenced area ahead of Saturday’s match. Please be aware that our concourses are cashless facilities, with only contactless payment methods accepted.”

Drink has been banned at Scottish Football grounds – other than in hospitality areas – since the 1980 Scottish Cup Final riot after Celtic beat Rangers 1-0 at Hampden.
