    Celtic kick off City of Glasgow Cup with game against Clyde

    By: Newsroom Staff on 20 Aug, 2019 10:37

  • CELTIC kick off their City of Glasgow Cup campaign with a game against Clyde at Broadwood Stadium tonight (Tuesday), with an 8.15pm kick-off.

    The Hoops are the current holders of the trophy, having beaten Rangers 3-2 in last season’s final courtesy of a last-minute goal from Robbie Deas at Celtic Park. And Tommy McIntyre’s side will be looking to start with a win tonight against a Clyde side who have returned to the competition for this season.

    While Celtic and Rangers will both field ‘Colts’ teams in the City of Glasgow Cup, Clyde, Partick Thistle and Queen’s Park will field their first-teams.

    The format of the competition will be on a league basis, with each team facing each other home and away for a total of eight games. A final tie will then be contested by the top two teams in the ‘league’ to determine the winner.

    Earlier this year, the Glasgow FA was delighted to announce that it had agreed a new three-year sponsorship deal with City Refrigeration Holdings to support the activities of the Glasgow FA in the continuing development of Youth Football in the city.

    The new partnership will mean the relationship between Willie Haughey’s City Refrigeration and the Glasgow FA will now extend to 12 years, a fantastically generous and sustained level of support to the community.

     A spokesperson for the Glasgow Football Association said: “We are delighted to announce this exciting new format to the City of Glasgow Cup which we are sure will prove very popular for players and supporters. The cup is always keenly-contested and is a great environment for the development of young players.

    “We are also delighted to be supported again in our activities by Willie Haughey and City Refrigeration Holdings. Willie shares our vision of making a positive impact to young people at local level through football, and the support he has given the Glasgow FA will allow us to continue our important work in this area. We thank Willie and everyone at City for their continued support.”
