Celtic released a statement this afternoon stating their plans for further development at the club.
On their official website they announced they will today make a Proposal of Application Notice to Glasgow City Council in relation to possible further development of the Celtic Park area, including the potential creation of a new hotel, retail store, ticketing facility and museum.
The application is part of Celtic’s long-standing masterplan for the area, a vision which aims to deliver benefit to the Club and our supporters and allow further re-generation of the East End of the city, something to which we are totally committed.
This application represents only the first stage in this process. It is important to emphasise that considerable work and investment over a number of years would be required to bring this project to fruition. There would be a number of challenges to overcome to complete a development of this scale.
Celtic aims to be a world-class football club in everything it does. We are pleased to have made significant investment in recent years to develop the stadium and public realm area for the benefit of our supporters.
Any further development of this kind would be a hugely positive step for the Club, for our supporters and for the local community.
This news comes at a great time for the club, with a treble very much on for the first time since the Martin O’ Neill era and players being valued in the millions Celtic look to capitalise on it all. If pictures above of the possible design of the new Celtic Park development are anything to go by Celtic fans should be delighted with how things are going not just on the park but off it too.
