Dundee United have announced that they’ve cancelled “a number of” tickets for the home end ahead of their game against Celtic on Wednesday night.

The club has stated via their official website that this follows “a thorough investigation of all purchases of the Dundee United sections of Tannadice”.

The cancelled tickets will not work in the turnstiles and supporters attempting to use voided tickets won’t be allowed into the ground. Instead, a refund will be allocated to those who purchased them.

United have also stated that they will be conducting an outer perimeter security zone. Only those with valid matchday tickets will be allowed entry. This comes with all of Celtic’s allocation for the ground having already sold out.

The statement confirms that any individual identified in the wrong end will be ejected from the ground. Online sales for all areas of the stadium have now been suspended.

It comes with Celtic having the opportunity to win the league at Tannadice this week. The Hoops will win back the championship should they gain at least a point on Wednesday.

Tannadice set to be rocking as Celtic look to get the job done

The move from United has clearly been done to avoid Celtic supporters gaining access to the home end of the stadium. With tickets going fast, as many Celtic fans as possible will be itching to be a part of the title-winning celebrations should we get the result.

It remains to be seen just how many tickets have indeed been voided however. United didn’t give an exact figure in their statement, but the Daily Record believes it to be over 100.

Celtic supporters have been given the Shed End for the game on Wednesday after it was previously taken from them for the Scottish Cup quarter-final in April. But even so, the Hoops support would’ve sold out Tannadice if it had the chance.

It’s going to be a fantastic occasion should we get the point we’re after. Ange will be going for the win of course, and the support will be ready to soak it all in come full-time.

The atmosphere on Wednesday night will most likely feel as though Celtic are at home in any case. The level of backing Ange and the Bhoys have received all season has been imperative when it comes to on-field success.

Hopefully, that’s the case once again in the City of Discovery.
