Celtic fans could find themselves locked out another stadium in numbers next season if St Mirren’s consultation ends in an allocation cut for the bhoys. [Record Sport]
The Hoops fans currently get two stands at St Mirren Park and always sell out their allocation. But like many supporters in the SPFL, they can’t stand away fans coming in and taking over, even if it’s to the detriment of the club’s finances.
St Mirren could follow the likes of Hearts, Hibs and Livingston by pulling the plug on a sizeable away allocation and leave the Hoops supporters scrambling for briefs.
It’s a tremendous act of self harm on the clubs part when the home fans complain about the away support taking over but then don’t fill the seats themselves.
Football is all about entertainment and supporters being able to watch their team play, if there are seats going empty, why wouldn’t you sell them to people who want to buy the tickets.
It was easier to get a pack of toilet roll during the height of the pandemic than it is to get away tickets for Celtic games at present, this will only hurt it further.
