Celtic have confirmed that they have received “a further allocation” for next month’s Betfred Cup semi-final clash against Hibernian at Hampden Park.

The Hoops received their original allocation last month but sold out soon after with fans keen to see the game on Saturday 2nd November. However, extra tickets have become available (at the time of writing) as the club informed supporters on Tuesday morning.

Their ticket website says that further briefs are on sale to season ticket holders on a “first come first served” basis. Adult tickets for the match range from £25-£30 depending where they are in the stadium while concession tickets are available for £10.

Celtic allocation will be vast for Hibernian clash

Celtic’s new batch of tickets are certain to sell out in the coming days and Neil Lennon’s men will be backed by a capacity Hoops support for the evening kick-off. Hampden Park holds around 52,000 and it’s probably fair to assume that the majority of the arena will be filled with Celtic fans.

Last year we took around 30,000 supporters across to Edinburgh for the semi-final clash against Hearts. With a larger allocation available this time around we could see an even bigger Celtic support.

With the game being a 5:30pm kick-off it promises to be a terrific occasion. Hampden will be buzzing with anticipation under the lights and hopefully the team can match the supporters’ backing by taking us to a seventh successive domestic cup final.
