Celtic to be given entire stand in 3,000 Copenhagen allocation

The Celtic fans will receive an entire stand when they visit Copenhagen – a club figure has said.

Neil Lennon takes his team to the Parken Stadium for their Europa League last 32, first leg in Denmark next month.

As always the Hoops will be backed by a large and vocal travelling support – although the spectacle may be greater than some fans could have imagined.

Earlier this week, the club’s SLO John Paul Taylor revealed that we would be receiving an allocation of around 3,000 for the match on February 20th.

That number is a pretty healthy allocation in the 38,000 (footballtripper.com) arena. Although the Celtic support will still be heavily outnumbered, they will at least cover one full side of the stadium as Taylor gave an update to a supporter on Friday morning.

Celtic fans will be very visible in Copenhagen

The Celtic support will be housed in the entirety of one of the end stands at the Parken Stadium.

The “D Stand” is much smaller than the other three, seating wise at least, and is mainly made up of what looks like hospitality boxes.

But the fact remains that the Celtic support will be packed behind one of the goals in their thousands, hopefully roaring the team on to success.

So often in Europe we are packed away into a corner or high in an upper tier.

The fact that the support will be so visible and audible this time can only be seen as a real positive for the team.

Hopefully the players will do them justice as we aim to put ourselves in a good place for the return leg at Celtic Park a week later.
