Celtic announced today that season ticket sales are now entirely sold out for this season, with any seats remaining beyond the first sales period being distributed to fans on the waiting list.

These have already been scooped up by eager hands as Celtic break the previous season’s record for season ticket holders.

An email letter from both the new manager, Ange Postecoglou, and the club’s new CEO, Dom McKay, was sent out to all season ticket holders today; for those who did not get it, here’s what they had to say…

It is really pleasing for everyone at the Club that we announce today that our Season Tickets have sold out for the season ahead and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you directly for the part you have played in achieving this.

Your support is crucial to us, we are delighted that you will be joining us for the season ahead and it is something everyone at the Club truly appreciates.

In Celtic Park, we have a beautiful football arena, one of the biggest and best in football and to know that our Season Ticket holders will be with us again in such huge numbers is truly humbling and exciting.

We will use your support to drive us forward, on and off the field.

Our job, as ever will be to do all we can to give you a team you want to come and watch, one which plays the kind of football we all love and a team which brings you success.

Being named Celtic Manager is a huge honour and to be able to work in a theatre such as Celtic Park is a real privilege. I am delighted that you will be by our side and I promise that we will be doing all we can to give you a team you can be proud of.

On behalf of my team and staff I sincerely thank you for such brilliant support.

Ange Postecoglou

I would like to reiterate Ange’s words and thank each and every supporter who has bought a Season Ticket for the campaign ahead. Your support and commitment has been incredible once again.

By you supporting the Club in these outstanding numbers it allows us a strong platform to build from, with your backing crucial in everything we do as we work to deliver an entertaining, exciting and successful season.

We’re very much looking forward to welcoming you home to Celtic Park tonight for the first time in a long time, for what looks set to be an emotionally charged occasion.

Together, as One Club, we can achieve great things, as we have done over the many years of our proud history and it is fantastic that you can join us in person once again as the season unfolds.

On behalf of everyone at the Club, thank you once again for your incredible support.

Dom McKay
