North Curve announce plans for Copenhagen tifo

You know it’s a big Celtic game when the North Curve are firing out instructions to fans about a pre-match tifo.

But it’s not often the case that the details are being posted prior to an away game.

However, that’s the situation today as Neil Lennon’s men prepare to take on FC Copenhagen in their Europa League last 32, first leg clash this evening.

Not only will the Hoops support pack their allocation at the Parken Stadium, but they will also hold up a display as the teams walk out in the Danish capital.

The North Curve – the section of Celtic Park containing the Green Brigade – posted the update on social media early on Thursday as they gave travelling supporters all the information they need to know.

They told fans in Denmark that they would be travelling to the game from the city centre by train – leaving the main square at 5pm local time. That’s just under two hours before kick-off.

They also announced a surprising tifo saying: “Please make efforts to get into the stadium early and raise the material found at your seat for the team entering the park.”

Tifo should set the tone for a strong Celtic performance

As we told you earlier this year, the Hoops support will occupy the entirety of one of the stands at the vast Parken Stadium.

That means that they will be behind one of the nets, trying to suck the ball into the net in one of the halves.

They will have a hard job making themselves heard due to being heavily outnumbered. But the 3,000 odd supporters will do their best as Lennon’s men try to extend their terrific recent Europa League run.

And the fact the team will walk out to a sea of colour as well as noise can only be positive as we aim to make an impact on the knockout stages of the Europa League for the first time in a while.
