Celtic Fans Warned Not to Use Word ‘Ultra’ On Visit to Valencia

Celtic fans have been warned not to use the word ‘Ultra’ on their visit to Valencia next week.

The Hoops are in the Spanish city on Thursday, February 21st for the second leg of their Europa League last 32 tie.

Thousands of fans should make the trip over to Valencia for the game – and they’ve been warned about what they can and can’t do as is usually the case ahead of an away European trip.

As part of Spanish regulations, the supporters are not permitted to use the word ‘Ultra’ under any circumstances, including on banners unfurled in the away end at the Mestalla.

Per celticfc.net, the supporters have been warned:

The word ULTRA is prohibited inside the stadium. In general, all means of communication of racist, hatred or violence will be prohibited.

Banners with symbols or words that make reference to ULTRA fan groups or fan groups with a violent history will not be allowed, following Spanish regulations.

We get the impression the Green Brigade won’t be too happy with this rule.

Not that it should stop the supporters enjoying what is an appealing away trip.

Valencia is a beautiful city with plenty to do around the game, but it’s also a winnable tie for Brendan Rodgers’ men.

The first leg will take place at Celtic Park next Thursday.
