It has been revealed that plans for a new events venue beside Celtic Park are to be taken forward by a developer [reGlasgow].

The new venture had been halted by Covid as planning permission was originally given the green light back in 2020 but it looks as though things are starting to get moving again.

It would see a two-storey venue that could host up to 700 people, along with covered external seating as well as five container units for food outlets.

Some of the land which the venue would have to be built on belongs to Glasgow City Council meaning that they would have to agree to the sale as the site would be on the ground next to 1257 London Road which is currently lying empty.

On paper, something like this makes a lot of sense as there are very little options around the periphery of Celtic Park at present that cannot cope with the amount of fans on a regular matchday.

Within the stadium, the club have made some inroads in trying to make it a bit more accessible to fans pre-match as the club opened a new bar facility this season and were also most recently granted a license to sell alcohol within the ground from 11am until 1pm in the West Stand concourse.

This would also be a boost to the local area which is something the architect James Aitchison of the project also shares, “With the major development works following on from both the Commonwealth Games and the redevelopment of Celtic Park, the opportunity to continue the improvement momentum is illustrated by this application and its place in providing another piece of the Glasgow East End jigsaw.”
