Celtic have announced that they will receive an allocation of tickets for their Europa League match in Seville against Real Betis.

The Euro clash is set to take place on Thursday September 16 with a kick-off time of 5:45pm UK time.

A Celtic statement read: "Due to the short turn-around time which we must deal with and the local Covid protocol requirements, we are presently establishing the most appropriate process for allocating tickets to those fans intending to attend the match.  

"Further information will follow through the club website. Given the ongoing travel logistics, the club will not be providing any fan charters for this match and naturally encourage any supporters wishing to attend the match that they comply with all UK and Spanish Covid-19 requirements. The club will provide further information as soon as possible."

UEFA did have a ban in place on away supporters attending matches in all of their competitions, however this is set to be lifted on September 10.

As a result Celtic fans will now have the chance of an emotional return to Seville where they famously took an estimated 80,000 for the UEFA Cup Final against Porto in 2003.

The last time Hoops fans were able to watch their team compete away from home in Europe was 19 months ago when the club picked up a point against Copenhagen in the Europa League.

The news comes as the Parkhead outfit announced a home sell out for their Scottish Premiership clash with Ross County this weekend.
