Celtic fans won’t be allowed into the Mestalla Stadium if they have any clothing with the world Ultra!
Security seems exceptionally tight in Valencia for the match but on past experience there are likely to be Celtic supporters in every area of the stadium with a large number of Scottish and Irish ex-pats resident in Spain.
Ultra culture started off in Spain and Italy and is now used by fan groups across Europe to illustrate their support and dedication to their clubs.
Valencia: here’s what you need to know:
Don’t go to Stadium if No Ticket??
Be there at least 1 hr pre KO if you have ticket?
There will be cordons and searches????
No Large Bags????????
No Banners or Clothing with word ULTRA on????????
Enjoy yirsel????????????@CelticFC pic.twitter.com/ZX3RTQiQ2g
Pyro displays and fireworks have been a regular display at UEFA fixtures in recent years with some attracting fines and others being ignored. Dutch and Polish fans have managed to put together displays that look close to a whole stand being on fire with only minimal sanctions.
Around 10,000 Celtic fans are expected in Valencia but less than 3,000 have got tickets for the designated visitors section with no plans in pace to accommodate Celtic fans who have bought tickets for the home areas of the stadium.
