Video: Stunning Green Brigade display at Celtic Park is going viral
The Green Brigade’s full stadium tifo display at Celtic Park was a wonderful addition to the flag day celebrations today, setting the tone for an entertaining afternoon of football.
The music and noise before the 2-0 win over Aberdeen really raised excitement levels, with Ange Postecoglou describing it as “amazing” in his post-match radio remarks.
The match was being shown live on Sky Sports, and around the world, so it was a great advert for what a Celtic matchday could be. The broadcaster uploaded a clip of the scenes to their social media accounts earlier today and it’s already racked up more than 100,000 views, with many more to follow.
The display was arranged and coordinated by The Green Brigade, with help from North Curve Celtic, and they all deserve credit.
So do the supporters who donated money to their fundraiser earlier this summer, which promised not just one full-stadium display, but more throughout the season.
You’d imagine this will probably be based around the club’s Champions League campaign, and I can’t wait to see what they have up their sleeve after this effort.
With noise, passion, colour and creativity such as this, it really feels like the club can push for even more special moments this season, off the back of last year’s success.
It must be a motivating factor for players. Sometimes you can even see them harnessing the power of the crowd early in matches and punishing opponents.
Well done to everyone involved in today’s event and here’s to many more over the next 12 months!
