    Our stadium is currently symmetrical, with the symmetry through the centre of the main stand (not exactly true, with that tiny away section, but what's a small section between friends!).

    I kinda like the stadium as is too, it seems original and being able to see over the main stand for the skyline is cool, but a completed amphitheatre look would be awesome, as would the extra (15k?) fans on a big European night. Ultimately though, do we need to spend a wedge of cash on that? Feels kinda 'pec implant' ego spending to me... I'd rather the money spent elsewhere

    I don't understand the whole UEFA hard on for underground entry for team buses

    Why can't they just drive through the big * gates at the SW corner and be done with it?

    The away team does that on flag days, so it is possible.

    The actual technical term is


    “Lower front than the rest”

    Happy to help.

    :56:..... I agree with you, the older you get the more frequent you need to go:confused:

    I avoid drinking much liquid before I set off so I'm not needing to go until its near KO.

    Nup, I love that our stadium has the lower Main Stand.

    Particularly for shots from high up at the front/drone footage. There’s not many other clubs you can see right into the cauldron from that perspective.

    In regards to underground access/parking can we not just borrow the huns design and shift the pitch onto the roof then have the parking underneath where the current pitch is?

    I never knew that, is the pitch at Ibrox not actually at ground level, do you have to go up to it?

    Isn’t a new trophy room included in the current museum plans anyway?

    Fan zone outside for * to do with the kids and us grown ups.
    Hopefully the big screen outside will show games but I did see they wont make it tok distracting for drivers.


    But a fan zone with a screen showing old games, or even the game that's on the tv that day. Maybe a few bands, wee beer tent.
    Be magic
    They'd make a fortune anaw.
    Folk up there, 12pm, wee games for the kids, bar, food stalls, few bands.
    Be amazing

    Be able to accept card payments at the Main stand stalls or at least stick a few ATMs in the place

    Not in any particular order:
    Raise capacity to approx 70,000
    Add retractable roof once capacity increased.
    Sort out parking for fans
    Sort out view for EVERY fan by removing some of the pillars.- retractable roof would help this.
    Big events being held at Celtic Park more often.
    A free gift to every single Celtic supporter that attends at least 3 matches during the 10IAR season.:biggrin:

    It’s been, what about 15 years? and I still don’t understand the hovering pitch. The casino is underneath? Where do the fans watch the game? :56:
