    Save your days in May for green and white celebrations

    By: Newsroom Staff on 18 Jan, 2017 14:20

  • GLASGOW is set to become green and white towards the end of May this year as we plan a host of events to celebrate the 50th anniversary of our greatest ever achievement - when Celtic became the first British Club to win the European Cup.  

    The Club’s triumph in Lisbon on May 25, 1967 is a hugely important part of Celtic’s history and an integral part of the club's identity, defining Celtic as one of Europe’s leading football clubs.    

    Led by the great Jock Stein, 11 men all born within 30 miles of Celtic Park took on European giants, Inter Milan, in the heat of Lisbon. They deservedly won the match and with it the honour of lifting the famous European Cup, the biggest trophy in Club football.   

    It is hard to believe it is half a century since that wonderful day and to mark this every special anniversary, and this most special of achievements, the Club, in due course, will be announcing a number of events to celebrate the Lions and all they have done for the Club. 

    We are sure fans from all over the world will be wanting to make their way to the city to take part in these event. Already the Club has been inundated with calls from fans looking to be part of the celebrations. 

    Together, the Celtic family will paint Glasgow Green and White as we honour the Lions, as we thank our fans and as we Celebrate Celtic. 

    We will be in a position to confirm all events which will run from 24th-28th May 2017, culminating in the previously announced Legends match at Celtic Park, when two other Celtic greats, Henrik Larsson and Lubo Moravcik, will play their own part in these celebrations.
