Celtic have confirmed the date and time for the upcoming annual general meeting (AGM) for shareholders.

In an announcement to the London Stock Exchange, Celtic plc said: “Celtic plc confirms that its Annual General Meeting will be held at Celtic Park at 11.30 am on Wednesday 17 November 2021.

“Formal notice of the meeting will be issued to shareholders shortly, along with the Company’s annual report and accounts which will also be available on the Company’s website at https://www.celticfc.com/club/celtic-plc-investor-relations.”

The AGM can be a newsworthy occasion, as shareholders get the opportunity to ask questions directly of the chief executive and other board members. The manager also usually attends.

It’s been a tumultuous 12 months at the club, with many supporters finding themselves at odds with the board, their actions and poor communication.

The shambolic 2020/21 season is no doubt in the forefront of some shareholders’ minds, so there could well be a few testing questions for those in charge. No doubt some will also want to ask what went on with the ill-fated CEO reign of Dominic McKay.

Two resolutions have been put forward by The Celtic Trust, which have received enough support to be included on the agenda. One relates to the governance of Celtic and the independence of non-executive directors, while the other is a note of concern regarding the club’s handling of the ‘Resolution 12’ issue.

Last year’s AGM was held remotely, with questions pre-selected and filtered by the club. So this is the first real chance for off the floor, direct questions since before the pandemic.
