Premier Sports have confirmed their broadcasting details for this month’s UCL second qualifying round tie between Celtic and Midtjylland.

The TV broadcaster announced today that they would be screening both matches live. The first leg will take place on Tuesday, July 20th, with the second being a week later on Wednesday, July 28th.

Tuesday’s clash has a kick-off time of 7:45pm Celtic Park Time. However, with the second leg being in Denmark, kickoff will come at 6:45pm

In addition to the UCL ties, Celtic fans will also be able to watch this month’s friendly clashes with Preston North End and West Ham United respectively. Both matches will take place at Celtic Park, with the first coming against the Championship side on Saturday at 5:30pm. The game against David Moyes’ Hammers takes place in between the two UCL matches on Saturday, July 24th at 3pm.

This is a fine boost for Celtic supporters without a Pass to Paradise subscription. All matches mentioned outside of the away game in Denmark are being screened for season-ticket holders.

Celtic’s final match of the month, meanwhile, will come at Tynecastle against Hearts. This will be the Premiership curtain-raiser for the Hoops, and will take place on Saturday 31st July at 8pm. That one will be live on Sky Sports.

Meaning that for all five games between now and the end of the month, there will be a viable way for Celtic fans to watch them all live.

Ange Postecoglou will be looking to get off to a fast start in what will be a hectic introduction to life as Celtic manager.

Here’s hoping we can get off to the best possible start and get some early momentum under the new manager’s belt.
