Eibar to host Celtic friendly

Celtic will travel to Eibar for a pre-season friendly held to mark the Basque club’s 75th anniversary, it has been confirmed.

The Glasgow club will meet the recently relegated Armeros on July 18 at 6pm local time, the game taking place at Eibar’s Ipurua ground.

AS reports Eibar invited Celtic for the game as they are ‘an opponent of renown and prestige’ and they intend to make the occasion a fiesta for the city.

Eibar and Celtic have a long connection, AS note, as Eibar did for two seasons wear a green-and-white kit in tribute to the Bhoys.
