Ferencvaros have today contacted Celtic to inform them that there will be no tickets made available for Hoops supporters for their upcoming Europa League clash in Hungary.

Celtic will welcome their Euro foes to Parkhead on October 19th before the return game two weeks later. Both games will be pivotal for Celtic’s qualifying chances given both sides have yet to pick up a point after two games.

UEFA lifted the ban on away supporters attending matches in their competitions ahead of the group stages getting underway. However, despite that, Celtic have been snubbed from getting an away allocation for Ferencvaros just as they did for Real Betis on matchday one.

Celtic have stated this is due to UK vaccination certificates not being deemed valid for access to the stadium.

Celtic have also confirmed that they are awaiting information from Bayer Leverkusen on details regarding a potential allocation for our matchday 6 trip to Germany.

As of right now, Celtic are advising supporters not to arrange travel.

Celtic fans left disappointed as Ferencvaros provide 2nd consecutive shutout

Celtic were left disappointed when the Andalusian authorities halted them from attending the game against Betis. This was said to be down to Covid laws in the region.

However, as for the trip to Hungary? This just appears to be a flat-out refusal to accept the UK vaccination certificates. We never get political on 67HailHail, but you’re certainly left scratching your head at this one. Or maybe you aren’t.

Regardless, the game away to Ferencvaros is looking like our most important. Celtic will be expected to get the job done at Parkhead in front of their own supporters. But it’s whether we can get a result at the Groupama Arena that will determine whether we’re left battling for a spot in the last-32 or not.

Celtic fans were right to get excited about UEFA lifting its ban on away fans this season. It finally looked like a return to normality on the European stage. But so far our fans have been met with disappointment after disappointment.

The Hoops have had 3 big away trips so far in Europe this season. The supporters haven’t been able to attend any of them.

Fingers crossed then that something can be arranged for Germany. The last time Celtic supporters experienced an away-day on the continent came against Copenhagen in early 2020. It’s time the Celtic fans were allowed to start crossing borders once again and showing their world-famous support.
