The vast majority of Kilmarnock fans are set to follow in the footsteps of St Johnstone most recently and not be able to watch their side in action at Celtic Park.

The reason for that – Celtic are still not offering a pay-perv-view service to their home games. That means that for Celtic fans, only season ticket holders or supporters abroad will be able to watch the game on Sunday.

Available to very few fans

The outcome is even starker for Kilmarnock fans. The only Rugby Park fans that will be able to watch the game live are those that abroad, and international Killie TV subscribers. UK subscribers will get an audio commentary.

It is unfortunate that Celtic have decided not to offer games on pay-per-view this season. Not just for home fans, but for away fans as well. Still, that is what the club have decided to do.


Will pay-per-view continue next season?

Most clubs in the Premiership have offered pay-per-view services to their league games this season, and it will be interesting to see if this practice continues next season.

Hopefully fans will be back in stadiums by that time, but it would not be that much of a surprise if stadiums aren’t completely full.

Still, that is for next season. As for this season, it seems highly unlikely that Celtic will change their policy on pay-per-view now, when the season is almost at the halfway mark.
