Confirmed: How much fans have to pay to watch Celtic vs Aberdeen on PPV
Celtic have confirmed how much supporters will have to fork out in order to watch the game against Aberdeen on Sunday via PPV.
The Hoops are making the game available to supporters based both in the UK and Republic of Ireland. The match will still be available via the Pass to Paradise for season-ticket holders. However, it’s also now accessible for fans without one.
Ange Postecoglou’s side take on the Dons in another crucial Premiership encounter this weekend. A victory will continue the piling of the pressure on Rangers amid serious questions over their character.
And Celtic have confirmed that fans will now need to fork out £12.99 in order to watch the game live via their PPV stream.
The Hoops support have already become accustomed to the PPV service after several big away games were snubbed by Sky Sports this season. From Livingston’s ridiculous £20 fee to the more reasonable £12 price set by Motherwell, fans have certainly had to spend some extra cash this term
The Celtic PPV stream will be the only way for non-season-ticket holders in the UK and Ireland to watch the game legally.

Celtic vs Aberdeen on PPV – value for money?
It’s difficult to have a pop at this particular fee to be honest. As poor as Aberdeen have been this season, it’s always one of the meatier fixtures in Scottish football. Splashing out £12.99 to watch it is hardly a disaster.
We’ve certainly been ripped off worse by other clubs this season. Livingston’s £20 charge was ludicrous considering the product was never going to be of a decent standard on the astroturf surface.
More frustrating however has been the fact that we’ve had major away games snubbed by the sole TV broadcaster in Sky. Massive games away to Livi, Motherwell, and Hibernian to name but a few have been totally ignored.
The same will happen for our trips to Dingwall and Paisley next month. It’s an unacceptable situation and one that we’re quite rightly frustrated about as supporters.
Of course, Celtic vs Aberdeen at home was never one of the fixtures we would’ve expected to have been picked up by Sky. So it’s pleasing to have the option for non-season ticket holders based at home to purchase the match for a reasonable enough fee.
Our next game on Sky Sports will be at home to Hearts on Thursday December 2nd.
