Celtic have announced that the upcoming home match against Hearts will be available for supporters to stream on a pay-per-view basis.

Tickets for the 7:45pm Scottish Premiership clash are already sold out, so there’s a good chance some people eager to watch the fixture wouldn’t have otherwise been able to.

The game will be available for £12.99 via this link and will include Celtic TV’s pre-match build-up, half-time and post-match analysis.

Celtic use up PPV quota vs Hearts

This is the fifth time Celtic have made a game available for pay-per-view, meaning they’ve now exhausted their quota as determined by the TV deal with Sky Sports. Scottish clubs are able to show five home games that aren’t selected for television and also don’t take place at 3pm on a Saturday.

Celtic have already played the Jam Tarts twice this season, winning an August home game 2-0 and an epic away fixture 4-3. Hearts’ upcoming visit is part of a doubleheader against the Edinburgh club, with part two coming next Saturday lunchtime in a huge Scottish Cup quarter-final at Tynecastle.

Celtic supporters have been given over 3,000 tickets for that one, guaranteeing a raucous and brilliant atmosphere in the capital for the lunchtime kick-off. That one is live on Viaplay Sports 1.

Robbie Neilson’s team will be coming into the matches with confidence having taken care of St Johnstone by a 3-0 margin at home this afternoon. It was a return to winning ways after losing to Motherwell on 19th February.

They remain the third-placed team in the Scottish Premiership, with arch-rivals Hibernian five points behind. Hibs play away to Rangers at the same time as Wednesday night’s kick-off, making it a high stakes evening for all four clubs.

It’s certainly not a night to miss, whether you are heading to game or taking up the club’s option of a pay-per-view stream!
