    Celtic supporters ready to return to Celtic Park when possible

    By: Newsroom Staff on 14 Oct, 2020 16:05

  • THE Club’s recent fan sentiment survey has delivered important results.

    99.5% of Celtic supporters have expressed their overwhelming readiness to get back to Celtic Park, as soon as we are able to do so, through the results of an extensive fan survey completed by the Club.    

    In the supporter survey, completed by 17,000 season ticket holders, we asked fans to tell us how they felt about potentially returning to Celtic Park to watch matches and to let us know their thoughts on the processes and procedures that we may have to implement in order to ensure supporter safety, in line with Government recommendations.

    Celtic has been at the forefront of establishing effective protocols for the safe return of supporters.  While understanding that any supporter return will be led by Government, the responses and opinions provided by our season ticket holders will be hugely important in further informing these protocols as we look to work with the relevant authorities to welcome fans safely back to Celtic Park as soon as possible.

    A spokesperson for Celtic said: “We would like to sincerely thank our season ticket holders for their fantastic level of engagement in this survey.

    “The information will be crucial to us as we look ahead to a safe supporter return to Celtic Park. The survey demonstrates an over-riding willingness of fans to get back to Celtic Park when safe and to adhere to a wide range of safety measures as part of any return.

    “Celtic has already worked tirelessly on establishing protocols for the safe return of supporters to Celtic Park. We have submitted detailed proposals to Government in terms of firstly establishing test events and we will continue to work with football’s Joint Response Group and all other relevant authorities as we move forward.

    “We fully appreciate a return will be led by wider considerations, however when we are given the green light, then we are ready to go.

    “We are grateful for the wonderful support and involvement from our fans. We also understand that many of our fans and indeed all our communities continue to face major challenges against the backdrop of the pandemic - something we do not underestimate.”

    Amongst numerous findings, the main Survey highlights are as follows:

    -  99.5% of supporters ready to return but would expect restrictions at the stadium
    -  99% of fans would complete a COVID-19 health questionnaire prior to entering the stadium
    -  86% of supporters would still attend even if not allocated their regular seat
    -  80% of supporters would still attend even if another family member with a season ticket could not
    -  83% have access to a printer to print their own ticket
    -  75% would travel by private car to the stadium
    -  87% expressed excitement and optimism at returning to attend live matches

    Supporters would feel most reassured by Hand Sanitising Stations, one way systems, Face Masks and Temperature Checks.

    Through analysis of all survey results, the Club, along with engagement specialists Velocity Worldwide, have established the following conclusions on sentiment and “supporter journey”.
