AFTER four year of endless headlines about record breaking attendances in the lower leagues of Scottish football the mainstream media has strangely fallen silent on this subject over the last week or so.
On Saturday, as @AgentScotland reported this morning on Twitter, Celtic’s attendance for the 4-1 victory over Aberdeen at Celtic Park was the fourth highest in European football.
Celtic’s crowd of 57,785 was only bettered in Dortmund, Munich and Madrid.
With a sky high demand for Champions League packages, Celtic are assured three 60,000 sell-outs for these glamour matches in the autumn.
The next visitors to Celtic Park will be the latest Ibrox club and there will not be a free seat in the house that day.
With well over 50,000 season tickets, more than the capacity of any other team in the league, Celtic are going to have the biggest crowds in Scotland for every league match.
As the only Scottish side in Europe – again – Celtic will rack up a huge advantage through ticket sales over any other side.
But don’t expect to seem any puff pieces in the papers about this, with wee advertorials at the end giving out the hotline number to secure your ticket.
And don’t expect any more world record stories about attendances.
Here are the numbers outlined by @AgentScotland….
