    Larsson v Lubo was £12 last year and sold out weeks in advance. Why they decided to double it to £24 I don't know.

    Testimonials often have the current squad playing about 45 minutes each with some old faces. Hayes is not fit yet, would have been good to have him play a half for both sides.

    In regards to the price, while it has not sold out it has sold very well when charging £24.

    Aye the price shocked me a bit as well, I was £51 for 2 tickets after charges. I wouldn't miss Broonys testimonial over a few quid but I did find it a bit steep.

    Fanzone for Sunday

    Open top bus would've crowned this. Saturday evening is a cop out

    http://www.celticfc.net/news/14418

    CELTIC Football Club are proud to announce that OUR FIRST EVER FANZONE at Paradise will take place this weekend as part of our celebrations to honour our captain Scott Brown, before his highly-anticipated testimonial match.

    Thousands of supporters have already snapped up their tickets for this unique fixture, as Martin O’Neill and his Republic of Ireland XI take on Scott Brown and his Celtic squad which includes the one and only Henrik Larsson who will once again grace the Paradise pitch on Sunday, May 20 (KO: 2pm).

    Opening at 12noon, the Fanzone (located at the North West side of the stadium) is the perfect place for supporters of all ages to meet up early, as they soak up the party atmosphere before kick-off. And for those wanting to continue the celebrations post-match, the Fanzone will be open for a further two hours after the final whistle.

    Entry to the Fanzone will be FREE OF CHARGE FOR ALL FANS WITH A TESTIMONIAL TICKET, with live entertainment, music, free face painting, competitions and exclusive interviews with ex-players, as well as food and drinks stalls selling a variety of tasty treats and beverages to set you up before the match!

    There will also be a kids' football fun activity area costing just £2 an hour per child, where young footballers can hone their own skills before watching the Bhoys in action!

    Looking like just the first team with Henrik, McCourt & Maloney added. Sure any other big names would've been announced by now.

    Aye seems like it’s just the first team with a few extras, henriks a weird one as they weren’t teammates but I suppose they needed a big name to justify the ticket price.

    As long as it’s footballers that are involved I’m not all that fussed.

    Nothing against the same old celeb faces personally, but watching them run about a football pitch is pretty tragic viewing. Even worse when you have no idea who they are.

    That's why you're paying £24 a ticket :56:

    Aye I agree with that would much rather watch old players than celebrities, some of them seem to struggle with the absolute basics of kicking a ball around.

    Yeh they should of 100% tried to get some of the old boys back together, players Brown has played with. Everyone would love to see players like Nakamura & Samaras back in the hoops.
