CELTIC FANS CHARGED £15m FOR HIBS
Celtic fans will have to part with some money if they want to watch their beloved team face Hibernian on pay-per-view (PPV) in what's their next game in the Scottish Premier League. The week 15 clash between hosts Hibernian and defending champions Celtic is scheduled to take place at Easter Road on Saturday, November 21, 2020. It is the first match in the Scottish top flight after the November international break.
Earlier on Thursday, Hibs confirmed on their PPV website that fans will have to pay £15 for the game with Europa League campaigners Celtic. This is the third time that Celtic fans will have to pay to watch their team away from home. They had earlier being charged for the away games at St. Mirren and Ross County.Celtic won both matches and Neil Lennon's men would be targeting a hattrick of wins against Hibs.
On Matchday 3 of this season's Scottish Premier League, Celtic came from a goal down to beat St. Mirren 2-1 courtesy the duo of Shane Duffy and James Forrest who both scored in the first half of the encounter. Shane Duffy was also amongst the goals as the Scottish champions thrashed Ross County 5-0 on Matchday 7.
The £15 charged by Hibs for the game is the same as what Ross County charged for pay-per-view on Matchday 7 and it could have been more since the away trip toHibernian is a more glamorous match. St. Mirren charged £12.5 for their pay-per-view on Matchday 3.
Celtic would be determined to secure victory against Hibs at Easter Road in their quest to close the gap on arch rivals Rangers at the top of the table. Rangers have a nine-point lead over Celtic at the top of the Scottish Premier League having played two games more than the champions.
