DUNDEE’S proposal to play Celtic in the States this season has been vetoed – but the Dens Park outfit will try again to arrange the historic fixture some time in the future.
The club’s second home game against the champions in this campaign has been switched to Sunday March 19 for live TV coverage.

A statement from the Tayside club read: “With today’s fixture amendments release including the upcoming home match against Celtic, we would like to address the situation regarding discussions which have been ongoing with the possibility of playing a fixture in the United States of America.

“A lot of positive conversations have taken place regarding this over the period since the initial discussions took place about playing this fixture in America, but, unfortunately, it will not go ahead at this time.

“Some of those conversations which have taken place over the past few months have branched off to other areas of discussion which the club are actively pursuing for the future.

“We will continue to look into any and every avenue which we feel can benefit Dundee Football Club.

“As with a number of projects like this, for various reasons, we are unable to give all the information and we appreciate our supporters patience around this subject.

“The club are always looking at new initiative ways to take the club forward and we have been heartened by the support we received from our fans about this potential project.”
