Celtic season tickets sell out

Celtic fans have snapped up all available season tickets for the 2018-19 Scottish Premiership season.

Thousands of tickets were purchased after Celtic accomplished their double treble when they beat Motherwell in the Scottish Cup final.

The Scottish club announced yesterday (Tuesday) that supporters can no longer purchase season tickets for the new campaign, though match-by-match tickets will still be available for selected games.

Fixtures for the new season are set to be released on Friday, while the European qualifiers start for Celtic on July 10 or 11.

Last month, Celtic entered into a tit-for-tat exchange with Rangers over away allocations.

Rangers announced they were prepared to cut thousands of tickets for their rivals in Steven Gerrard’s first season as manager.

Rangers reported record season-ticket renewals of more than 40,000, leading them to release a statement restricting “all visiting fans” to the corner of the ground situated between the Broomloan and Sandy Jardine stands.

This change means Celtic fans will see a reduction of more than 6,000 tickets when they visit Ibrox as they are usually allocated the entire Broomloan Stand.
