Celtic Fans React to Talk Club Will Take No Tickets For Potential Linfield Game

Celtic Fans React to Talk Club Will Take No Tickets For Potential Linfield Game

Celtic fans appear disappointed at talk the club won’t take any tickets for their potential Champions League qualifier against Linfield.

The Hoops have been drawn against the Northern Irish side or San Marino outfit La Fiorita in the second round of UCL qualifying.

And considering La Fiorita have scored just one European goal in their history, it looks most likely that Linfield will face Celtic.

Since the draw, there has been plenty of discussion about safety and the date on which the game would be played.

It was initially earmarked for July 12th, but that looked like non-starter from the beginning as it’s the same day The Twelfth is celebrated.

News emerged yesterday that Friday, July 14th is being considered as an alternative fixture date, but, even at that, it looks like Celtic may not take tickets for the Linfield game in Belfast.

According to this dailyrecord.co.uk article, it’s being considered by the club. And Celtic’s supporters’ liaison officer hinted to that when asked on Twitter last night:

As with every away day in Europe, Celtic would no doubt take a sizeable support to Belfast for the game – even if tensions would be high between both sets of fans.

Fans have been quick to criticise the thought of not taking tickets for the game:

A statement is expected to come from the club today and that should set out full details of what would happen if Linfield were the opponents for the second round qualifier.
