Celtic have released details of the allocations given to the club by Ross County and Dundee United for upcoming matches this month, with the barrier remaining very high to attend.

Ross County have given 2,957 tickets to the club to sell for the Premier Sports second round, with the criteria for purchase being season ticket holders (STH) who have attended 31 or more away games over seasons 21/22, 19/20 and 18/19.

Meanwhile, the club have received an allocation of 2,905 tickets for the Scottish Premiership away match vs Dundee United. This involves the sale of tickets in the Jerry Kerr and Shed ends.

In order to purchase, you must be a STH who has attended 37 or more games over seasons 21/22, 19/20 and 18/19.

There are additional criteria points for both games, with a list of prior matches excluded from these totals available on the Celtic FC tickets Twitter account.

Both allocations are likely to sell out even with these restrictive criteria, demonstrating how much demand there is to follow Ange Postecoglou’s Bhoys at the moment. The away support are snapping briefs up very quickly at the moment and fair play to them.

It does feel harder than ever for others to officially buy tickets and lodge it against their client code, though spare tickets for the County game, in particular, should be available to most who want to travel to the Highlands mid-week.

More frustratingly, there will likely be plenty of empty seats in the home end at both fixtures. Obviously segregation can be difficult to manage but in the case of a match like the weekend’s one against Kilmarnock, it felt like many more Celtic fans could have attended.

Regardless, I’m sure those able to get tickets for these games will enjoy the occasion and back Celtic from whistle to whistle as always.
