Celtic season ticket holders have already had the chance to nab a free ticket to see Celtic FC Women against Hibernian tomorrow, but don’t despair if you haven’t managed.

The Ghirls will, as you’d expect, be broadcast on Celtic’s Pass to Paradise platform for season ticket holders. It’s a massive day for Celtic FC Women, who’ll be playing their second game at Paradise, and their first this season.

Last year, Covid-19 restrictions halted fans from coming to see Celtic FC Women take on Rangers at Celtic Park. Mariah Lee scored the all-important goal, a crucial result in the SWPL season. Celtic would go on to grab a place in Champions League qualifying.

This time, Fran Alonso’s team are SWPL Cup champions, and have a whole host of talents. Thousands of Celtic season ticket holders will be in attendance to see Kelly Clark and co. battle the Hibees at a sunny Celtic Park. The Hoops, though, announced another option earlier this evening.

The club announced [Celtic FC]: “Celtic FC Women are set to run out at Celtic Park for the first time this season in front of thousands of fans.

“For those Season Ticket holders who can’t make Saturday’s match against Hibernian, you can watch it LIVE on Pass to Paradise.

“Tune in from 2:50pm on Saturday, as Celtic TV’s Louise Gould, and Hoops player Natalie Ross will provide live pre-match build-up ahead of the SWPL1 clash.

“Celtic TV’s Daylin Docherty will then take over on commentary alongside former Celtic and Scotland forward, Suzanne Mulvey to take you through all the match action as it happens.”

Tomorrow has a been a day long, long in the planning.

When Celtic season ticket offerings were announced in the summer of 2021, we wondered when Celtic FC Women would play for the Paradise faithful. The Penny Cars stadium isn’t exactly local to a vast swathe of Celtic supporters. Being able to see the Celtic FC Women side in Glasgow being a unique opportunity is a strange situation.

Nonetheless, it’s a big deal. It’s not just significant for the current women’s side, who have been fantastic since turning professional in 2019. But for a whole generation of girls, playing for Celtic at Paradise might’ve seemed unfeasible, impossible even.

Well, now it isn’t. And neither is being broadcast for Celtic season ticket holders. Both of these things are now a reality, and what an inspiration that ought to be.

It’ll be a sunny day in Glasgow tomorrow, and now there are two great ways to see an attacking, entertaining side in action for Celtic season ticket holders.

It should be a great occasion. This team deserves a far bigger audience.
