Celtic release ticket info and eligibility conditions for Betis away game
Celtic have released ticket information and eligibility conditions for supporters hoping to see the Bhoys face Real Betis in Seville next week.
Last night, the club announced that a ticket allocation for away supporters had reached Celtic Park [Celtic FC]. This afternoon, the Bhoys’ official ticketing Twitter account released some more information.
Specifically, who was eligible to get a ticket, how to get them, and the pricing.
The Celtic FC Tickets account stated:
“Tickets for away match v. Real Betis are now on sale to eligible [season ticket holders].
“Season ticket holders who have attended 4 or more of the last 16 European away matches can purchase a ticket online.
“You will be required to provide your passport number at the time of purchase.
“All tickets must be purchased in advance online.
“Tickets are priced £17 and tickets will be required to be uplifted in person from a collection point, with photo ID, in Seville. There will no sale of tickets at the collection point.”
Exciting times for Celtic supporters hoping to get a Betis ticket
For the travelling Hoops faithful who get to European away days, this is monumental news.
The last away day for fans was in Copenhagen, back in February 2020. On the night, a strike from Edouard and a Forster penalty save left Celtic with a 1-1 aggregate score to take to Parkhead [BBC].
The venue couldn’t be more fitting, either. A return to Seville on a hot September evening? Fine, it won’t be the Estadio La Cartuja de Sevilla the Hoops faithful descend upon this time. But there’ll be plenty chance to roam the city and relive memories of 2003’s UEFA Cup Final.
80,000 supporters travelled to Seville. Their conduct was so exemplary that FIFA awarded the club with an award [Guardian].
Obviously, due to the times, it won’t be remotely as many Celtic fans who make the trip over.
At least, though, if they’re eligible to do so, fans now know how to bag tickets.
