Sarajevo v Celtic – “We won’t be showing this game on Thursday,” Premier Sports as Scottish Cup Final date confirmed

Celtic’s Scottish Cup semi-final match against Aberdeen will take place on Sunday 1 November at Hampden Park with a 2.30pm kick-off. This match will be shown live on Premier Sports.

The other semi-final, the Edinburgh derby between Hibs and Hearts will take place the day before, with that game kicking off at 5pm, to allow for live broadcasting of the match.

Meanwhile Premier Sports, who last week enjoyed a huge surge in Celtic subscriptions ahead of the Europa League qualifier against Riga FC, have today confirmed that they will NOT be showing the Play-off match against Sarajevo on Thursday evening.

Montrose CSC asked the subscription broadcaster if they were going to be showing the Sarajevo v Celtic match and received a very disappointing reply.

Perhaps BT Sport are going to awake from their Scottish football slumber to show this match. If not many Celtic supporters will be asking themselves why they are still subscribing.

AND IF ALL ELSE FAILS CELTIC CAN ALWAYS SHOW IT AS PART OF THEIR ADDED VALUE PROMISE TO SEASON TICKET HOLDERS!
