Celtic are set to be backed by a huge support for next Sunday’s Betfred Cup Final against Motherwell.
The Bhoys’ official website has announced that Celtic have sold out their complete allocation of 32,600 tickets for the game.
Celtic were initially awarded 31,000 tickets for the game, but were eventually awarded a small number of extra tickets which were immediately snapped up by supporters.
As the capacity of Hampden is just over 52,000, Celtic will have a huge numerical advantage when it comes to supporters for the game.
Celtic will be looking to defend a trophy that they won last year, defeating Aberdeen 3-0 in the final thanks to goals by Tom Rogic, James Forrest and Moussa Dembele.
The trophy was the first of an eventual domestic treble, the first won by Celtic since 2001.
The Hoops reached the final this season after defeating Hibs 4-2 in a very exciting semi-final, with Celtic’s goals coming from Mikael Lustig and Moussa Dembele, who each scored two goals apiece.
Celtic return to action after the international break with a Saturday lunchtime trip to Ross County, as the Hoops attempt to increase their unbeaten British domestic record of 63 games.
The Hoops then head to Paris to take on PSG in the week leading up to the Betfred Cup Final.
