Queensland Government lures "the Celts" to Brisbane

Premier Anna Bligh has announced that the Queensland Government has secured football giants Celtic to play Brisbane Roar in a "friendly" match at Suncorp Stadium
on Sunday 12 July. Ms Bligh said attracting the famous 'Celts' was not only a coup for Queensland football fans but for followers of the game throughout Australia and the Asia Pacific region.
"Celtic was bombarded with offers from other countries, most notably Japan and the United States, to play pre-season games there," Premier Bligh said.
"Given the enormous fan base Celtic has throughout the world, we are expecting their game against the Roar to be a sell out. The Premier said the Celtic game would constitute the annual "Queensland Roars Against Racism" game.
"The 'world game' is surely the best vehicle to send the important message that racism will not be tolerated in Queensland," she said. Celtic Chief Executive Peter Lawwell the club was delighted to accept the invitation to play in Australia.
"Celtic is fortunate to enjoy the support of millions of people worldwide and it will be a great privilege to ensure that many of our Australian supporters have the chance to see the team play in their own country," he said.
Brisbane Roar general manager Peter McLennan said the match would provide the Queensland public with a small taste of the fierce rivalry shared between Scottish giants Celtic and Rangers.
"Brisbane captain Craig Moore and Hyundai A-League Foreign Player of the Year Charlie Miller both had distinguished careers at Glasgow Rangers and know what it means to face Celtic," he said.
TransLink CEO Peter Strachan said TransLink, who are one of the sponsors of the game, would provide free public transport to and from the match for ticket holders.
Suncorp Stadium General Manager, Paul Sergeant said tickets would go on sale through Ticketek to the general public on Tuesday 2 June (TBC).
Tickets are expected to range in price from $26 to $90 (TBC) and kick-off time is planned for 3pm, taking into account that children were returning to school the following day after their mid-year holiday break.

Seems a shame that this game will sell out when Roar's competitive games dont.

Why not offer free PT to members all season, for example.

Frustrates me that the business community and media jumps on the bandwagon when a 'name' team comes out (see channel 10 the other year for Syd v LA) but when it counts - during the actual season - you dont see hide nor hair of them....

hopefully, over time, this will change...

Will the Dhims be wearing their shirts that commemorate the end of the Famine like they did yesterday against the hibees ? they were the 1st team to be born from Irish immigrants not the other lot from the west coast...sooner they realise they play in Scotland the better if no gtf back to Ireland and send Rangers down to the English Conference while your there !!
