“It is impossible to thrive at this stadium unless you have thick skin.” – Brilliant report places Celtic Park as one of best atmospheres in the world
Every Celtic fan knows this anyway but it is always great to get validation from a publication from outwith your own country.
Sportskeeda is one of the largest sporting publishers in the world and today it ran a piece on the top 5 stadiums in the world for atmosphere.
Celtic Park ranked fourth behind Napoli, Liverpool and Dortmund.
The article said, “The Scottish Premiership is often seen as a two-horse league, with Rangers and Celtic vying for gold more often than not.
“Celtic, in particular, have been wildly successful in the last decade, winning the league title every season between 2011 and 2020.“
“They’ve had some of the best players in their ranks, of course, but they must also tip their hat to Celtic Park for unwavering support.“
“Celtic Park, one of the best stadiums in the world, Every touch is booed, every player is jeered. It is impossible to thrive at this stadium unless you have thick skin.
“So good are their intimidation techniques, they were able to lead their team to a historic 2-1 win over Barcelona in the 2012-13 Champions League.“
There is nothing like Celtic Park on a European night under the lights as many of Europe’s top clubs have found out and to be listed with stadiums like Stadion San Paolo, Anfield and the Westfalenstadion is testament to the passion and commitment to the Celtic supporters.
