    Celtic awarded prestigious Platinum Award

    By: Newsroom Staff on 10 Jun, 2015 14:04

  • CELTIC Football Club is delighted today to announce that it has become the first Scottish football club ever to be awarded the prestigious National Club Licensing Platinum Award by the Scottish Football Association.

    The Scottish FA’s Club Licensing system encompasses a National and UEFA regulatory system, which sets standards and procedures by which clubs will be assessed as a basis for continuous improvement of many aspects of football, including:

    Stadium facilities

    First-team football

    Youth football

    Legal, administration and finance practices 

    Clubs are graded from entry level, Bronze, Silver and Gold and only in exceptional cases will the Platinum Award be granted.

    Celtic Chief Executive Peter Lawwell said:  “We are delighted to be the first Scottish club to receive the Platinum Award.

    “Celtic aims at all times to be a world-class football club in everything we do and this award is recognition of the high standards of governance across many areas, which the club has met for some time.” 

    “I would like to thank and applaud everyone at the club for their efforts in achieving such continuous improvement across these areas and of course for their high standards of professionalism.

    “I know everyone is committed to maintaining these levels and ensuring that Celtic continues to be an example of best practice.”
