Celtic’s allocation for January’s Premier Sports semi-final cup tie against fellow Scottish Premiership side Kilmarnock has been confirmed today.

Last week, the Bhoys secured their return to Hampden Park, emphatically defeating Motherwell 4-0 at Fir Park.

Following on from that result, Ange Postecoglou’s side was drawn to take on Derek McInnes and Kilmarnock, who also booked their place in the last four with a win over Dundee United.

After the conclusion of the draw, the question that quickly comes on to everyone’s lips is what sort of allocation each club involved will receive.

This morning, ticket details and prices have been confirmed by the SPFL for the Hoops trip to the national stadium on the 14th of January.

Celtic supporters will receive a larger portion of Hampden Park, taking up their usual sections in the North, East and South stands.

However, there will also be an extra section of the Parkhead faithful in the West stand, with Kilmarnock taking the rest of the South and West sections in the ground.

Tickets will cost fans purchasing adult tickets between £38-£33. More details on ticketing for the Saturday 5:30 PM kick-off can be found within the SPFL statement here.

The Celtic supporters are likely to travel to Mount Florida in their numbers to cheer on Ange Postecoglou’s side, with the club’s ticket office expected to release further allocation news in due course.

Of course, Celtic are the current holders of the competition, and last season’s cup success proved to be a huge catalyst for the rest of the campaign.

So, you would imagine Ange Postecoglou and his side are extremely determined to achieve yet more cup success at Hampden Park next year.

Before our attentions turn to the Premier Sports Cup last four, though, there are still plenty of other domestic and European fixtures for the Bhoys to turn their attention to.
