    Celtic to play Slavia Prague in pre-season friendly

    By: Newsroom Staff on 12 Jun, 2017 14:19

  • CELTIC will take on Slavia Prague in a pre-season friendly on Tuesday, July 4 as part of the team’s preparations for the new campaign.

    The match takes place in Slavia’s Eden Arena and will be the third pre-season match for Brendan Rodgers’ side, who also take on BW Linz in Rohrbach on Wednesday, June 28 before facing Rapid Vienna in Amstetten on Saturday, July 1.

    And the game against Slavia Prague, like the other two fixtures, will be broadcast LIVE to ALL Celtic TV subscribers. For more information click HERE

    There are historic links between both clubs, with Johnny Madden, who played in Celtic's first ever game back in May 1888 before going on to make 118 appearances for the club, also going on to coach Slavia Prague in the early 20th century, being acknowledged as the 'father of Czech football'.

    In April, a group of supporters representing the Celtic Graves Society visited Prague to take part in a special ceremony with fans of Slavia Prague at the graveside of Johnny Madden.

    Celtic will also be in action against Shamrock Rovers in Dublin on Saturday, July 8 ahead of their first UEFA Champions League qualifier the following midweek.
