Celtic fans have been left frustrated and disappointed by the club’s latest ticket announcement.

Despite being given an allocation believed to be in excess of 30,000 for the Betfred Cup semi-final with Hibs a ballot has been held among season ticket holders on the Home Cup Ticket Scheme.

Celtic have had two home ties to reach the semi-final stage with 27,318 attending the 2-1 win over Dunfermline with 25,008 watching the win over Partick Thistle. Taking away visiting supporters and single match ticket sales it’s fair to suggest that around 20,000 fans on the HCTS attended both matches.

That should ensure a semi-final ticket for the fans that attended but with a ballot held some of those fans will miss out.

Celtic have already expressed their displeasure with the 5.30pm Saturday kick off but it seems that some regular supporters are going to miss out on the match.

Hibs have been allocated half of the South Stand with additional sales for the West Stand beginning at the South corner which could release additional tickets for Celtic fans in the West Stand.
