All home matches shown live by Sky Sports WILL be included on Celtic’s virtual Season Ticket.
The fine details over the virtual Season Ticket have been sketchy so far other than they won’t be available on a match by match basis.
Celtic fans have raised a number of concerns about the Virtual tickets with little prospect of Celtic Park being able to host crowds of 50,000 before the turn of the year.
Deciding which fans will be allowed in for restricted attendance matches is one issue but the SPFL deal with Sky Sports is also a major concern.
The deal for Virtual Season Tickets was brokered between the SPFL and Sky but it was assumed that matches shown live and ‘exclusive’ on Sky wouldn’t be included on the virtual ticket.
John Paul Taylor has been the on the front line for every issue during the last four months and was able to reassure Season Ticket holders that they’ll have access to the opening Glasgow derby without having to subscribe to Sky.
This the case? @CelticFCSLO
Would imagine it’d just be flag day and Rangers but for us that don’t have Sky it’s an even bigger kick in the teeth. https://t.co/l8MHE4sgyc

The SPFL are expected to publish their fixtures in the next week with Celtic likely to be at home for the opening round of fixtures. Last season’s 7-0 win over St Johnstone wasn’t shown live but with a new Television contract and a five month gap since the last televised game it is expected that Sky Sports will provide live coverage of flag day.
