Celtic have major Hampden semi-final decision to make

Celtic Park
Glasgow, Scotland - July 27, 2014: The Main Stand at Celtic Park home of Glasgow Celtic Football Club in Scotland. The football stadium is the largest in Scotland.

Celtic have a tough decision to make in regards for ticket allocation for the Scottish Cup semi-finals that will take place at Hampden Stadium in April.

Celtic has played the last three Scottish Cup matches away from Celtic Park. While it has been disappointing for Hoops fans to not see their club play at home during this historic run, many diehards have travelled to support the club.

As Celts Are Here has pointed out, all three matches, while away from Paradise, have also come in seemingly extreme conditions. Partick Thistle was in the middle of winter, Cyde was windy, and the match against St. Johnstone had some of the worst pitch we have seen in a while.

With the Scottish Cup semi-finals coming up on April 11th, and being held at Hampden Stadium, the Celtic board will have to determine whether or not they will allocate tickets to the HCTS lottery with right of first refusal or if they will reward those fans who showed up in the harshest conditions to support their club.

Until now, there has been no decision on how they will proceed. Stay tuned.
