CELTIC has announced it is to begin selling virtual season tickets to allow fans to watch league matches, closed due to social distancing restrictions.

Following an announcement today, new proposals permit clubs to sell tickets to allow supporters to view games on 'bespoke club platforms' when they re-start.

Celtic said season ticket holders will have exclusive access to every home SPFL league match, 'as we go for 10 in a row.'

The club said it will be announcing more details in the next few days and fans who have already renewed season tickets for the season will also have access.

Celtic Chief Executive, Peter Lawwell, said: “The current crisis has had huge implications for the club and our supporters. Once again, I would like to thank our fans for their patience, understanding and support during these unprecedented times.

“I have already said, our priority has been to look at ways in which can resume football and ultimately get our supporters back safely to Celtic Park as soon as possible.

“Until we can welcome our fans back, we want our fans to stay as close to the Club and be part of everything we do.

“The access will be available while social distancing measures prevent fans from attending matches and will mean that our season ticket holders, exclusively, will be part of every SPFL home game.

“Everyone at Celtic was delighted to deliver 9 in a Row for our fans.

"Clearly, we have another exciting season ahead and the chance to make even more history, and we want our fans with us every step of the way."
