Almost un-commented on over the weekend, Celtic fans produced another demonstration in favour of a £20 price limit on away match tickets in the SPFL.
On Saturday it cost £31 to watch the 1-1 draw with Hibs at Easter Road, on Sunday Celtic visit Livingston with away days at Motherwell, Hamilton and Ibrox accounting for over £160 for the dedicated fan just eight matches into the season.
Unilateral solidarity & mass action… Fans can collectively lobby change, point scoring will achieve hee haw!

A similar protest at Hamilton drew criticism from the home club with other fans quick to highlight the fact that at Celtic Park they are given seats with restricted views. Missing the point of the campaign which is aimed at ALL supporters and not just the travelling Celtic support.
In England there is a £30 cap on ticket prices for away supporters.
At Livingston on Sunday Celtic are likely to have 7,500 fans filling up more than three sides of the stadium for a 12 noon kick-off.
There are no rules currently in place over ticket prices with club’s at liberty to charge whatever they feel is suitable for home and away supporters.
Celtic season ticket holders buying the three match package for the Europa League are being charged £72 with the non season ticket package costing £84.
