When Celtic will find out new 2022/23 SPFL fixtures as Scottish football year ends
So another crazy year in the world of Scottish football has come to an end with Celtic reigning supreme with 2 trophy wins.
Nobody expected Ange Postecoglou to sweep Celtic to league and league cup success. But that’s exactly what he did as Celtic went from a disaster to a delight during the 2021/22 season.
As football fans, we naturally can’t wait to see what’s next. If we could have that UEFA Champions League draw tomorrow, for example, then we would. If we could find out who we were playing on opening day? Same again.
Thankfully, for the latter, we already know when the fixture list for 2022/23 will be released. The SPFL have already announced that they’ll deliver the fixtures on June 17th at 9am. That’s only 25 days away, or just over 3-and-a-half weeks.
Last year, Celtic were sent to Tynecastle to face Hearts in a game we would lose 2-1. However, flag day at Celtic Park promises to be a more memorable occasion.
Celtic will head to Austria for a pre-season training camp in July with fixture details still to be announced.
Celtic supporters will already be looking forward to SPFL fixtures release
Excitement ahead of next season is already cranking up. The Hoops already appear to be working on new recruits too if recent transfer stories are anything to go by. No doubt Ange will have his priority targets in mind.
The Celtic boss has already done his best to whip up those excitement levels too. He’s promised supporters that the Hoops will come back next season bigger and better [Daily Record]. An ominous message to our domestic rivals for sure.
Celtic fans have seen a sweeping brand of attacking football inject itself into Parkhead this season. So much so that, even though the Premiership was one, there was certainly a sadness on trophy day that the campaign was over.
Thankfully, we don’t have too long to wait until we can start building up to the new season once again. Once the upcoming international camps come and go, it’ll just about be time to return to pre-season action.
There’s something brewing already ahead of next year that supporters can’t wait for. The return to UCL football is undoubtedly a big part of that. But even domestically, how we combat new challenges and ways of stopping us will be absolutely intriguing.
At least we don’t have too long to wait before we know who we’ll be kicking the season off against.
