Celtic have honoured one of their best Season Ticket proposals; access to Celtic FC Women matches via the Pass to Paradise.

The club have just announced that fans will be able to watch Fran Alonso’s side take on Rangers this Sunday in the SWPL.

Celtic could top the league with a win over Rangers, provided Glasgow City drop points in their game against Hibernian [Flash Score].

The club announced [Celtic FC]:

“The Club are delighted to be following through on that commitment with the first LIVE Celtic FC Women’s match broadcast to Season Ticket holders this weekend.

“Fran Alonso’s side face Rangers at the Penny Cars Stadium in Airdrie this Sunday, November 7 in the second of a double-header against their city rivals.

“The Hoops go into the game full of confidence, having secured a 1-0 victory over Rangers in the SWPL League Cup last weekend, and they will look to maintain their impressive derby form when they go head-to-head once more on Sunday, with an important three SWPL points up for grabs.

“Your Pass to Paradise login details remain the same, simply click below during the build up to kick-off at 4:10pm on Sunday to tune in.”

Celtic deliver on season ticket promise; great news for Celtic FC Women

If Celtic FC Women are going to grow in stature within the general Hoops support, opportunities like these need to be taken.

While it would’ve been even better to watch the game live, maybe even at Celtic Park, that’s something that could still happen.

In the meantime though, getting access to a game of this stature through club channels is undoubtedly a good thing.

For Fran Alonso’s side, the opportunity not just to best Rangers twice in two weeks, but to attract new followers. The Women’s team shouldn’t need to advertise itself, with high-quality players, an attractive, winning style of football and a charismatic manager. But only two years after going professional, every little helps.

Undoubtedly, it’s a huge game for Fran Alonso. The lovable Spanish manager has had the best of Rangers in every game he’s managed against them. To beat them yet again could have exciting long-term ramifications.

On Sunday, Celtic season ticket holders will get to see what all the fuss is about, if they haven’t already.

It should be an absolute cracker.
