Celtic Park Could Open To Fans In September
Scottish football fans have been given hope that they could be back at matches next month.

Scottish football fans have been given hope that they could be back at matches next month.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon today said that stadia may reopen to supporters from September 14.

Fans have been unable to attend games since March, with football suspended until last month due to the shutdown. 

She said: "Given the volatility we face in transmission of the virus, there is a very real possibility that some or all of these plans could change.

"However, with that significant caveat, we hope that from September 14 sports stadia will be able to reopen only for limited numbers of spectators and with strict physical distancing in place.

"We also hope that from September 14 indoor contact sports activities can resume for people aged 12 and over, and we hope that entertainment sites and cultural venues such as theatres and live music venues will be able to reopen from that date too, but with strict physical distancing in place.

"To facilitate that, these venues can reopen for preparation and rehearsal from the 24th of August."

The last match to be played in front of a crowd was Rangers v Bayer Leverkusen in March. The 2020/21 Premiership campaign began this month, with Celtic and Rangers scheduled to meet at Celtic Park on October 17.
