The deadline to buy the tickets for the game against the Ibrox side is the 15th of August, but you have to image that the tickets will be snapped up by the eligible season ticket holders long before then.
READ CELTIC VERDICT:
There will always be a demand for tickets when Celtic play Rangers, as it still the biggest game that the Hoops will play in the Premiership, and even though the tickets are priced at the very expensive £52, they will be no doubt be sold to those eligible season ticket holders.
It will be interesting to see just how many sell out Premiership games there are at Celtic Park this season. The league opener against Aberdeen was a sell out, and that was always going to happen, as it was flag day and the first league game for the team in over two months.
One wonders if the next league game at home, against Hearts will also be a sell out. That game is set to be moved to a Sunday thanks to Hearts’ European commitments, and that could affect the attendance to an extent.
There will be a big demand to see Celtic this season, and season tickets for 2022/23 did sell out, and you have to imagine that the Champions League group stage fixtures will be massively popular too, as the Hoops return to the competition for the first time in five years.
The prices of the tickets for the Champions League will be worth discussing when they are eventually announced, you have to think that the club will once more implement a three-game package deal like they always have in European group stage competition, and it could be very expensive, but the demand to see Ange Postecoglou’s side will be there as the Hoops play in the Champions League once more.
