The Green Brigade announce brilliant new season Celtic plans

The Green Brigade have announced that there will be a full stadium display for Celtic’s opening game of the Scottish Premiership season.

In a statement on social media, the fan group announced that they will be raising money to fund a tifo that will involve the entire stadium on flag day.

Celtic Park will be paying tribute to Ange Postecoglou and his side off the back of an incredible first season under the 56-year old.

There are further plans for the season ahead too, with the group stating that the display on the opening day wouldn’t be the final full-stadium tifo.

More regular displays are also on the horizon, with the magical Champions League nights set to return to Celtic Park this year.

The fan group have asked for the support of the Celtic fan base to help fund and create special occasions which will remain a part of the club’s history for years to come.

To this day, we continue to see pictures of previous full-stadium Green Brigade displays shared, including the celebration of the Lisbon Lions European Cup victory, in 2016, and the incredible effort prior to Barcelona in 2012.

And the group are keen to create more of these.

In the statement on Twitter, they said: “On the opening day of the season, we will produce a tifo to celebrate the success of last season while laying a marker for the season ahead: WE DON’T STOP.

“Ange has united our entire club, so we will prepare a tifo that will involve the entire stadium. To achieve this, we need your support.

“We won’t stop at one tifo; we will keep the find running to support all tifo initiatives throughout the season. This will include bigger, better, more regular tifos as well as at least two full stadium tifos for the season.”

You only need to look as far as last season for some of the brilliant tifos produced by fan groups, such as the tribute to Bertie Auld at Hampden Park last November.

From next season, we could be about to see these large scale projects on a regular basis, which can only be a good thing for the atmosphere within Celtic Park.

The roar that will return to the East End of Glasgow on that first home game in the Champions League will be a moment to behold, and I cannot wait to see what the group have up their sleeve in-stadium over the next 12 months.
