Ticket arrangements announced for Celtic’s match at Ayr United

Ayr United this morning confirmed the ticketing arrangements for the visit of the Scottish Champions and Scottish Cup winners to Somerset Park on Friday 5th July. Celtic will take on Scott Brown’s Ayr United as the Championship side officially opens its new North Stand.

Via their official website the Somerset Park club provided a detailed update on ticketing for the pre-season friendly, which will be Celtic’s next match after the 1-0 victory in the Scottish Cup Final at Hampden Park on Saturday afternoon.

The Ayr Utd update reads as follows: In preparation for the Opening Game of the North Stand on Friday 5th July against Celtic – Ayr United would like to confirm the following arrangements:

Ticket Prices Adult: £20. Concession: £15 (Over 65’s, Disabled,Ambulant and Students). Juvenile: £15 (13-17-years-old) and Child: £8 (Under 13’s)

Tuesday 28th May @ 4pm – North Stand tickets go on sale to North Stand season tickets holders only – this will allow supporters who have bought north stand seats to be the first to experience a match-day in their allocated seat. These supporters will receive an email before 4pm with a link to buy.

Wednesday 29th May @ 10am – All other season ticket holders are given the opportunity to purchase tickets as a thank you to all those who have committed for the next season.

Thursday 30th May @ 10am – General sale for Ayr supporters starts (including any unsold season ticket seats).

The Club wishes this match to be enjoyed by as many Ayr United supporters as possible given the importance of the North Stand in the history of the club. In planning for the match, it is difficult to predict how popular either section will be given the date at the start of the traditional summer holiday period.

In discussions with Celtic, we can confirm that the away support will initially be housed in the Railway End terracing and the West Stand & Enclosure, with ticketing arrangements via Celtic FC only.

Home fans will be housed in the Centre Stand, East Stand. Family Stand and 2/3 of the North Stand & Terracing.

The remaining 1/3 of the North Stand & Terrace located near the Railway End and the Somerset Road End will remain unsold in the first phase of ticket sales, with further discussions to take place on Friday 7th June about how to allocate the remaining areas.

Clearly the Club wish to ensure all Ayr United supporters who wish to attend have the opportunity to buy a ticket, and this is the club’s priority. The match also presents an excellent opportunity for the club to generate significant revenues to put towards the playing budget in what is the most open Championship for many years. We hope the people of Ayr will come out in great numbers to support their local team and enjoy all the events we have planned for the North Stand’s grand opening!

Home supporters who have purchased tickets for other areas of the ground will be able to relocate to the SRE should that area be sold.

Further information will be communicated in due course.
