Report: Celtic to receive 7,400 tickets for Livingston away day
Celtic will receive as many as 7,400 tickets for their away day against Livingston later this month, the Scottish Sun reports.
Livingston confirmed earlier this week that they had been granted permission to host a full house against the Hoops in West Lothian. They then confirmed that they had sent Celtic an allocation figure.
And the Sun believe that figure to be in the region of 7,400. That would ensure Celtic fans are given three stands as normal for the Premiership clash.
It will be the first time Bhoys supporters will have visited a domestic away ground since March 2020. That clash was also against Livingston in a dramatic 2-2 draw.
The news comes after UEFA also announced their decision to lift the ban on away fans for European matches. All of a sudden, Celtic look like having some big away days on their plate.
The game against Livingston will take place on September 19th. Celtic have matches against Ross County at Parkhead and a trip to Real Betis before then.

Celtic given fine ticket allocation for Livingston clash; football returning to normal
The return of Celtic fans to away grounds will be yet another sign that football is returning to normal. The pandemic had a crippling affect on many industries, and football itself was no different.
Celtic supporters have been longing for away days to return so that they can vocally back their side in some of their trickiest matches of the season. It’s no wonder we struggled so badly without them last term.
Credit to Livingston for going all out to ensure a large capacity for Celtic fans too. Yes, they’ve done it out of financial motivation more than a bid to do the Hoops a favour. But even so, their move will ensure Celtic fans get to back their side away from home for the first time domestically in 18 months.
It will be interesting to see how Ange Postecoglou’s Celtic side react. The return of home fans to Celtic Park has clearly had a major affect on performances. Our two league games at Parkhead have seen us net six goals on either occasion. Not to mention our impressive 2-0 win over AZ Alkmaar too.
Considering Celtic need a major pick-me-up in the coming weeks, the return of away fans will hopefully lead to us picking up some form at a key stage.
