Cash windfall for Celtic fans

998

Readers of Celtic Quick News will know that our club has not been out of debt since Fergus gathered up our cash in 1994 and set about building the new stadium.  19 years later, with the mad arms race which consumed Scottish football over, we stand on the verge of coming out of debt.

The full consequences of this will not be known for years to come but the first material benefit is the £100 discount per season ticket Celtic announced today.  We’re no longer in debt, we can team-build in a measured and sustainable manner, and with Champions League money in the bank, Celtic have cut prices.

I know season ticket holders who missed out on the Barcelona, Spartak and Benfica games as, on top of everything else, they could not afford Champions League tickets.  If we get back to the group stage next season, supporters will be able to buy their season tickets and Champions League group tickets for less money than they paid for SPL tickets this season.

The return of the £50 under-13 ticket is also very welcome, along with a tiered level for older children.  With so many competing distractions, it is important that we bring as many young people into our community as possible.

Peter Lawwell’s comments underline the importance of bums on seats to everything that happens at Celtic, “The backing of our fans has, as ever, been crucial.  Domestically and in Europe they have once again been right with us and we felt it important that we rewarded their commitment by making this gesture”.

More welcome good news for the Champions.

    Which outlet will be first with, ” Celtic struggle to sell season tickets without their Old Firm rivals”.

     

     

    I will say the good old impartial BBC

  6. Well done Celtic………….

    Well done the ole board.

  8. Paul

     

     

    Great news indeed and shows our club really has the financial clout to do this and to repay the loyalty of the fans…..and with macaroni pies on sale too…what more could a bhoy ask for!

  10. Bravo! Dermot,Peter and the board.

     

     

    A great gesture for the fans..very much appreciated.

  11. TTT.

     

     

    I think Johann Murdoch is over there just now,Playing in an invitational PRO-AM I think.you’ll be at the golf hopefully.

  12. From Garngad to Croy I am Neil Lennon. on

    Thank you Celtic . You have renewed my faith in Scottish Football.

  13. Good timely, and requisite inititative from Celtic to reduce season ticket prices for next season.

     

     

    This was hinted at some time ago, and loyalty takes into account what Celtic fans have ‘suffered’ at the hands of the Rangers, Sevco 5088, SFA, SPL, LNS, OBB and MSM, and probably will endure from the existence of Sevco 5089. Whether it will be enough to halt undertsandable dwindling sales, remains to be seen but the chorum will be there.

     

     

    It’s a step in the right direction, because the ole ‘here we go ten in a row’ will still be a pricey business.

  14. Top 40 pop pickers? Not half!

     

     

    Great gesture from the board, just a shame I live so far away as I can’t take advantage of it! Subsidised travel on the agenda next!? :)

  15. Glendalystonsils likes a mr whippy with his lime green jelly on

    SB prices……..a great bums on seats initiative by the board. Once we win the CL next season they can bump them up again >)

  16. celt for life

     

     

    Maybe the BBC can start by asking Sevco why the remaining 15,000 or so Orcs didn’t take their seats after coming through the turnstiles?

    43,000 ma erse…..and at a fraction of our ticket price, they are the ones struggling, not us
