Stay up for the Champions

December 4, 2020

Ordinarily, as part of our Christmas Appeal, supporters would be gearing up to spend the night under the stars at either Celtic Park or St. Anne’s Primary School in Whitechapel, for our Glasgow and London Sleep Out events.

Unfortunately, like so many other events, these will not be possible this year due to restrictions currently in place.

However, as the crippling effects of the pandemic have added unbearably to the pressures on so many, the assistance provided by Celtic FC Foundation to those who are most vulnerable is now more crucial than ever before.

And that’s why we’re humbly asking supporters to stay up rather than sleep out, by taking part in a brand new initiative, ‘Stay Up for the Champions’.

Participants will take on the challenge of staying up from 11.45pm on Friday, December 4 until 5.45am on Saturday, December 5 and there will be a host of entertainment in store to keep fans engaged throughout the night.

The six hour broadcast will feature plenty of classic Celtic goals from over the years , highlights from the ‘Our Nine, Our Time’ DVD, special messages from the first team, Christmas Appeal beneficiary video pieces, a virtual twilight tour of Celtic Park, input from our Foundation Supporters’ Committee and a quiz, among other interactive elements.

Supporters can take part and enjoy the event from the comfort of their own homes, no matter where they are in the world (government guidance on social distancing and meeting with other households must be followed).

Registration is now open HERE. The non-refundable registration fee is £19 per person and all we ask is that participants commit to raising a minimum of £67 (after entry fee). Please ensure you read the Terms and Conditions before completing the process.

Participants who are under the age of 16 years old on Friday, December 4, 2020, must have consent/approval from their parent or legal guardian.

Upon registration, you will receive your sponsorship pack including a sponsor form and details on how to set up your online fundraising page. Participants will also receive a certificate upon completion.

Proceeds raised will be devoted to the Christmas Appeal phase of our Football for Good Fund, with a particular focus on our charity partners working with those facing homelessness or living in refuge.
