Celtic will take over Glasgow’s SEC once again next summer after the club announced that the ‘Celtic FC Festival’ would take place again.
The three-day event will be held in the height of summer from Friday 24th-Sunday 26th July 2020. Tickets for the event are already on sale from the official festival website where they say that it “promises to be even better again.”
Last year’s edition was deemed a success by many supporters, and those same fans seem keen to attend next year too. Judging by the replies to the club’s announcement on Twitter at least.
Can’t wait HH 🍀🍀

So lots of very pleased Celtic fans. However, there were some out there asking for a little bit more at the festival, including a couple of permanent signings.
Elyounussi better be there

The Celtic Festival can only be viewed as a positive
In all seriousness, the club continuing the ‘Celtic Festival’ tradition is great to see. There are literally no negatives to it. It gives the support their Celtic fix at a time when there isn’t a great deal of football being played. They can all go along and mingle together – basking in the joy of the club.
The event is also likely to make the club a healthy sum of cash. Tickets are priced at £20 for adults so a modest sale of 10,000 tickets will net the club around £200,000. Then you’ve got the addition of the club shop inside the venue selling merchandise for healthy fees.
The event clearly works for the club. They wouldn’t have commissioned it again otherwise. It also works for the fans and gives everyone a little bit more Celtic in their life. That can’t be a bad thing can it?
