The SPFL have made an announcement that Celtic supporter are going to love, having already given fans a kind kick-off time for a Saturday party.

For the Premier Sports Cup semi-final against St Johnstone, ticket prices have been frozen [SPFL].

The priciest seats are £35, for adults in the South Stand lower section J1. Elsewhere, it’s £30 in other sections of the South Stand, £25 in North Stand sections C and D, and as low as £10 for wheelchair users in the East Stand.

With Celtic facing St Johnstone, in Ange Postecoglou’s first trip to Hampden, there’s so much at stake. Facing last year’s League Cup winners represents the kind of challenge Postecoglou and his team will embrace.

Neil Doncaster, the SPFL Chief Executive, said: “We are thrilled to finally be welcoming fans back to Hampden for this season’s Premier Sports Cup semi-finals and delighted to confirm that ticket prices remain frozen since 2017/18.

“We wish the four remaining clubs the very best of luck. We are all looking forward to two fantastic matches live on Premier Sports.”

Ticket boost from SPFL for Celtic supporters

The Bhoys face St Johnstone on the 20th of November, knowing that it’s a first chance of silverware for Ange Postecoglou’s new-look team.

Hoops fans were already buoyed by a late kick-off time, in anticipation of a Saturday night party following their beloved Celts.

But to know that this crucial cup game will be the same price as years prior? That’s a fantastic move from the SPFL. It’s unlikely they’ll struggle to sell Celtic’s allocation for this one.

Celtic’s Hampden record over recent seasons has been outstanding. While 20-21 was a write-off, it still featured a Hampden cup win, albeit a delayed one.

Mount Florida has been a happy hunting ground over the last half-decade or so. And it’s incumbent on a fresh Celtic side to maintain that winning tradition in the South side of Glasgow.

There’ll be plenty fans there backing them, you can guarantee that.
