Win over HJK worth at least £6m to Celtic


Celtic will receive £1.65m from the Uefa revenue distribution system for participating in the Champions League play-off round against Helsingborgs.  Add to that around £1m gate money and the guarantee of at least three Europa League games, with Uefa distribution money, you can calculate the value of Wednesday’s win over HJK Helsinki as no less than £6m (all figures are net of vat).  Quite a prize for one game.

Compare this to the projected income from newco The Rangers, who claimed to have sold 25,000 season tickets.  If all sales were at full adult prices (£258 in vat), net income would be £5.375m.

Should Celtic overcome Helsingborgs and reach the Champions League group stage, the club will return to a remarkably strong financial footing.

    Can I make a wee request that regardless of performance or result tonight we show a degree of perspective on here and remember that this Real Madrid team humiliated AC Milan last week?



    Thank you kindly :-)




    HT I’m raging that we’re playing this match when we have the 2 Helsingborg games coming up.

    Do you meet any of them, speak to any of them ? Every single one I’ve encountered is angry, hostile and in denial. They are removed from normality. Frothing at the mouth and howling at the moon for a fair number of them is accurate.



    For decades they have been able to cheat others but more tellingly themselves too. How the Hell could they countenance anything but continue the charade, that is their “sporting” idyll ?




    To be fair I don’t talk to that many of them these days. I live and work in a pretty mono-religious area. As I said in the post, it was the way my mind works that made me think that. I was not long in correcting my utterly innacurate opinion. It’s what they should have done, but they don’t know any better do they?



    Mort – I agree, we should not be watching them. I admit to having watched part of the brechin game but I am resolved not to watch them again unless they are playing us in the cup. We should not buy in to their myth, but we should always leave room to rejoice at their calamities.



    Hail Hail, off to enjoy my evening. Hopefully catch a bit of the game and get our viewing figures up!!!!

    I think she supports your theory :-)
