Following a comprehensive survey to their fans across all age groups, Ticketmaster Sport client Celtic FC have revealed the fan anticipation for returning to stadiums and the results are pretty conclusive.

99.5% want to return to Celtic Park

It’s fantastic to see that nearly all the fanbase have expressed they would like to return and an even more impressive stat is that 87% of fans stated they were either excited or optimistic about returning to Paradise.

As we’ve seen since the beginning of the pandemic there are a few requirements that fans expect to see when returning like the inclusion of :

  • Hand sanitising stations
  • Face masks worn by fans
  • Socially distanced seating
  • One way systems

But, it’s great to see the demand from fans is bursting at the seams and we’ll be working with the club to make sure fans feel as comfortable in their return as when they were last at Celtic Park.

So, what’s happening next?

Celtic FC season ticket holders this week will be given the opportunity to let the club know their current household / extended household bubble. From this the club will be able to assess using our system the current landscape to seat people effectively and successfully run ballots for future games.

It’s a great way to continue engagement with the fans and to build the ticketing strategy based on the requirements of your loyal customer base.

We look forward to helping Celtic through the process and getting to see fans through the turnstiles and back in the stands.
