Supporter information for Hearts' away fixture vs Celtic on Thursday, December 2nd.


Tickets can be purchased from the Hearts Ticket Office which is open until 5pm this evening for sales and collections.

No away tickets will be available to purchase on the day of the game so Hearts fans without tickets should not travel to Glasgow.


Vaccine certificate checks

As per Scottish Government legislation, spot checks will be carried out at all entry points to the stadium and proof of COVID-19 vaccination must be shown unless one is exempt. Both digitial and paper vaccine passports will be accepted. 

The following groups of supporters are exempt:

participants in vaccine trials
under 18s
those who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons 
Under 18’s will be able to use their season ticket or match ticket as proof of age, as these have been checked at the point of purchase and are clearly marked with age categories.

Fans who are medically exempt or are participating in vaccine trials should carry proof of this. CLICK HERE to view Scottish Government information regarding what will be accepted as Proof of Exemption.

Supporters attending from the rest of the UK and the broader Common Travel Area (including Republic of Ireland) will be able to use their existing Covid Status apps with QR Codes or paper-based certificates. Visitors from outside the UK can use proof of vaccination from the country they were vaccinated in.

Hearts would like to once again emphasise that we are obliged to follow Scottish Government legislation and we thank supporters for their understanding and cooperation.



Supporters are encouraged to plan their journey accordingly and arrive early at Celtic Park so as to avoid queuing to enter the stadium.

Parking restrictions around the stadium will be rigidly enforced.

Searching is a condition of entry so please cooperate with Police Scotland and match stewards as a refusal to be searched will result in entry being refused. Anyone deemed to have consumed excessive amounts of alcohol will be refused entry, and supporters are reminded not to attempt to bring any prohibited items into the stadium, including pyrotechnics, which are inherently unstable and dangerous to the user and those in proximity.


Safety Protocols

All supporters should be aware that the wearing of face coverings indoors is still mandatory. You must wear a face covering on entry, whilst on the concourses (including at kiosks and in toilets) and when leaving the stadium. They do not need to be worn when seated in the stadium bowl.

Do not attend the match if you have any of the general symptoms of COVID-19

It is recommended that you should complete and return two negative lateral flow tests throughout the week.

Hand sanitising is available on entry and throughout the stadium. Use frequently.

Although social distancing is no longer a legal requirement, in the interests of everyone’s safety please continue to practice social distancing wherever possible.

Please adhere to the advice of the stewards and staff and stadium public address messages.

Though it is not anticipated that visiting fan will be held back at full time, please listen for updates over the public address system.
