St Johnstone will hand over three stands to travelling supporters in the Scottish Cup quarter finals when they host Celtic at McDiarmid Park.

The Perthshire Saints have already confirmed that for Premiership games this term, both Celtic and Rangers will be given the majority of seats in Perth. This is only on a trial basis for this season.

After a 2-1 win over Ayr United in the last 16 of the Scottish Cup though, Tommy Wright’s side were pitted against Celtic in the last eight. It’s left the club with a decision to make with regards to tickets.

 

It has been decided that as many as 7,000 tickets will be offered to travelling supporters. The same happened recently when Celtic travelled to McDiarmid Park, a game which St Johnstone lost 3-0.

This game will take place on Sunday 1st of March. Whilst some fans were supportive of this move for league fixtures, it is likely that opinion will be split over this incentive for a knockout Scottish Cup match.
