Celtic will give supporters a final chance to test their virtual season ticket tonight – as they show an iconic recent Hoops victory.

The club are holding another “test event” for season ticket holders to try out their ‘Pass to Paradise’ ahead of the system’s first competitive outing against Hamilton Accies this weekend.

Tens of thousands of supporters are likely to log on to the system on Sunday afternoon, despite the game being live on Sky, and the club want to make sure everything is running smoothly.

And after trialling the system for friendly games on both Sunday and Monday, a historic match will be shown tonight as a final chance for season ticket holders to sort any problems.

The match in question, as revealed by Celtic FC SLO John Paul Taylor on Twitter, is our famous 2-1 win away to Lazio.

The club are doing their best to make this work

While there were clearly some big issues with the ‘Pass to Paradise’ for Sunday’s friendly against Ross County, you can’t really criticise the club for not doing enough to get things right.

They’ll know how crucial it is that no supporter suffers technical difficulties at any game this season.

Thankfully, this Sunday’s game is also on Sky Sports. That means that fans should still be able to see the match, should there be any issues with the club’s official service.

Hopefully things run smoothly. But in the mean time, why not enjoy a bit of our win in Rome. Any excuse eh?
