The Scottish Premiership
The Scottish Premiership is the top-tier professional football league in Scotland, and Celtic FC is one of its most successful teams. The 2021/22 season is scheduled to start in early August, with Celtic facing Hearts in their opening match. Other notable fixtures in the early weeks of the season include Celtic taking on fierce rivals Rangers at Ibrox Stadium in the Old Firm Derby on August 28th.
One of the highlights of the Scottish Premiership season is the festive period, with a packed schedule of matches between Christmas and New Year's Day. This year, Celtic will take on Dundee United on Boxing Day, followed by a match against St. Johnstone on December 29th.
The Scottish Cup
The Scottish Cup is the oldest national football trophy in the world and is highly coveted by Scottish clubs. Celtic has won the Scottish Cup a record 40 times, and fans will be hoping for another successful run this season. However, the fixtures for the Scottish Cup are yet to be announced, so fans will have to wait and see who Celtic will face in the early rounds.
Celtic FC is a regular participant in European competitions, having won the European Cup (now known as the Champions League) in 1967. This year, Celtic will compete in the Europa League after finishing second in their Europa League group last season. The Europa League fixtures will kick off in September, with Celtic drawn in a tough group alongside Bayer Leverkusen, Real Betis, and Ferencváros.
One of the most exciting fixtures in the Europa League group stage for Celtic fans will be the match against Real Betis, which will see former Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou take on his former assistant coach, Manuel Pellegrini. The match is sure to be a hotly-contested affair, with both managers keen to prove their worth.
Overall, the 2021/22 season is shaping up to be an exciting one for Celtic FC fans. With a packed schedule of Scottish Premiership matches, the Scottish Cup on the horizon, and the Europa League group stages to look forward to, fans of the club will have plenty of opportunities to see their team in action.
