Celtic planning £4m worth of stadium upgrades

Scottish Premiership football club Celtic is reportedly set to invest £4m in enhancing the fan experience at Celtic Park through a slate of work that will include a state-of-the-art new light and sound system.

Scottish newspaper the Daily Record said that the Glasgow-based club is spending £2.3m on an entertainment system, with £1.3m to be spent on the installation of a new hybrid pitch.

The report added that further investment will be made in the stadium’s lounges, external areas and stadium roofing.

A Celtic source told the Record: “The club is in great shape and only going in one direction. The new investment and stadium additions continues progression and will make Celtic Park the country’s best sporting venue and one of the best in Europe.

“We aim to be world class in everything we do. Our fans are everything to us and we want to continue to give them the highest quality experience we can.”

The new light and sound system at the 60,000-seat stadium is said to be similar to those installed at Ajax’s Amsterdam ArenA and Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena.
