Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) has completed a specialist services project at Celtic Park, home to Celtic Football Club.
Also referred to as Glasgow Celtic, the club plays in the Scottish Premiership. Celtic is one of only five clubs in the world to have won over 100 trophies in their history. The club has won the Scottish league championship 52 times, most recently in 2021–22, the Scottish Cup 40 times and the Scottish League Cup 20 times. The club’s greatest season was 1966–67, when Celtic became the first British team to win the European Cup, also winning the Scottish league championship, the Scottish Cup, the League Cup and the Glasgow Cup. Celtic also reached the 1970 European Cup Final and the 2003 UEFA Cup Final, losing in both.
Celtic Park, which is in the Parkhead area of Glasgow is an all-seater stadium with a capacity of 60,411. It is the largest football stadium in Scotland and the eighth-largest stadium in the United Kingdom.
Following on from a successful 2021 project on the West Stand at Celtic Park, PTSG Building Access Specialists Ltd returned during the off-season break (before the start of the 2022/23 season) to carry out the structural inspections and painting of the steel support purlins to the underside of the East stand. Using bespoke techniques, its engineers carried out the works within the timescale of the closed season to the delight of the club.
