With Celtic’s opponents in the Europa League confirmed, the inevitable chat surrounding ticketing and what kind of package the club would be offering to see the likes of Bayer Leverkusen and Real Betis at Paradise, not to mention a revenge match against Ferencvaros as well, were now well under way.
With the club being slammed by the fans earlier this season for not giving thems a better deal in the earlier rounds of the European qualification stages, much hype surrounded the announcement and the value the fans would be getting.
And Celtic didn’t disappoint. Yesterday afternoon the club tweeted, “ @EuropaLeague price freeze for Season Ticket holders. Thank you once again for your incredible continued support. #UEL | #COYBIG ”

With a package price of £72 for season ticket holders, that’s £24 per game.
And it is fair to say, if you check the thread, the announcement was met with real positivity.
Former Celtic Trust member, David Low, was not impressed however when a few hours later he took to twitter to show his opinion on the boards pricing of the upcoming matches.
Low tweeted, “Price freeze? What a bunch of chancers!”

It seems, the tweet was misguided as he was met with a very high degree of criticism from the Hoops fans but he then tried to quantify his tweet in a reply to a fan, “Yeh, boasting about a price freeze having fleeced the season ticket holder for last season’s non performance with a £50 limited life kensitas club coupon! #chancers“

The Celtic support where, by in large, not having any of it and one even referenced that the price of a ticket now, is comparable to the price of a European ticket more than 20 years ago.
To see the supporters reaction to a normally well respected person amongst the fans, click on the original tweet as some of the replies are too tasty to put into a public news piece.
