Celtic fans get AZ Alkmaar telly boost

Image for Celtic fans get AZ Alkmaar telly boost

The second leg of Celtic’s Europa League Play Off away to AZ Alkmaar will be shown live by Premier Sports.

As things stand there is no live broadcast of tomorrow’s first leg in Glasgow but the return leg in the Netherlands will be shown by the channel that has exclusive rights to their own competition, The Premier Sports Cup and the Scottish Cup.

Showing the return leg on August 26 is a cute move by the broadcaster with many Celtic fans taking out a monthly subscription ahead of the home tie against Midtjylland on July 20.

Another monthly subscription will cover the Premier Sports Cup tie against Raith Rovers although a date hasn’t yet been confirmed for that match.

Next week’s 6.45pm kick off will allow Celtic to make a quick flight home from the Netherland as they gear up for the Glasgow derby at Ibrox three days later.

No away fans are allowed to travel to UEFA qualifiers but there are likely to be some Dutch based Celtic supporters in Alkmaar next Thursday.
