Revealed: Celtic’s Place in Europe’s Top 10 Elite

CELTIC are one of the top ten supported clubs in European football according to a new UEFA report which is out today. It reveals that Celtic have recorded the ninth highest level of attendances across all clubs in Europe and the Scottish Champions are included on a list of just 15 clubs that have achieved home attendances of over 1 million.

Celtic’s average attendance for season 2017/18 was 57,523 and our aggregate attendance was an incredible 1,092,937 putting Celtic in the same bracket as the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United and Inter Milan.

“The report highlights a cultural change in European football finance over the past decade, with football regulation, led by UEFA and supported by national associations; a stable media landscape; supporter loyalty; and a club-wide focus on managing costs allowing European football to end these ten years far stronger than when it started,” the UEFA website states.
