How to watch every Celtic pre-season fixture

Celtic have confirmed that fans will be able to watch all of the club’s pre-season fixtures.

The Celtic pre-season programme will be run largely from the “world-class” facilities in Wales. The Bhoys face some testing English competition, before hosting FC Midtjylland in Champions League qualifying on Tuesday, 20th July.

And subscribers to Celtic TV can watch all of the Celtic pre-season matches. In an announcement from the club earlier today, the club said [Celtic FC]:

“The Bhoys are continuing their pre-season preparations when they head to Wales next week.

“They’ll be looking to hit the ground running under new manager Ange Postecoglou, and you can see every kick of the ball when you subscribe to Celtic TV.

An exciting seven days for Celtic fans is about to get underway

“As well as all the match action, you can follow Ange behind the scenes as he moulds his first Celtic squad on the pre-season camp. Exclusive interviews, features and live link-ups will keep you informed as the Hoops get themselves ready for the campaign ahead.”

With Covid-19 still effecting match-day attendance, as well as the majority of the games being either behind closed doors or limited access, broadcasting is as important as it’s ever been. There was great annoyance at last season’s ticket book essentially working as a TV subscription. However, there’s hope that Paradise can host supporters as early as next month.

Who are the opponents in Celtic pre-season schedule?

We couldn’t have a juicier tie to open up our pre-season. Liam Shaw and Osaze Urhoghide will surely feature when Celtic face their old team, Sheffield Wednesday, on the 7th of July.

Then, it’s Charlton Athletic in Wales, and a visit to Bristol City, before a return to Celtic Park to meet Preston. The remaining summer friendly sees David Moyes visit his old stomping ground, sandwiched between two vital Champions League qualifiers.

Celtic’s pre-season fixture list

It feels very strange that we’re close to watching Celtic again. But instead of dread, like there was late last season, there’s change in the air. Some genuine optimism, new players, and fringe squad members ready to take chances. Some of those players, who spent last season on loan, will make for enticing viewing.

With Ange Postecoglou ready to make some big decisions ahead of the 21-22 campaign, we’ll be watching to see how the Bhoys get on.

Wednesday (against Wednesday) can’t come soon enough.
