That's probably corporate hospitality box prices - "category 1 seating" 
makes it sound like that - either that or some fuckwit is paying 300 quid 
for a seat in the stands ... here's the *real* pricing ...


Just in case you need to register to see that celticfc.net page, SPL game 
ticket prices for Celtic games are £25 for adults, £14 for under 16s and 
over 65s.  I paid £20 walking up to the park for a Celtic SPL home game last 
season (got it from a guy outside selling his ticket, no, not a tout!) and 
about £35 from the ticket office for a Celtic UEFA cup match at home.

Oh, for a season ticket ...

btw, apparently corporate hospitality isn't all that it's cracked up to be, 
not at Parkhead anyway - no colours to be worn, no shouting, no swearing ... 
I mean I know you get nosh and booze but the best part of going to see a 
Scottish football match is screaming at the referee / opposing team / player 
on your team who's just fucked up that he's a fecking this and a fooking 
that at the top of your lungs, hoops scarf around your neck, mince pie in 
one hand and plastic cup of bovril in the other ... :)
