U2 may cause cancellation of major Celtic game

Glasgow police say they can't host two major events at once

The date of Glasgow Celtic’s fourth round Champions League qualifying draw with Arsenal is in jeopardy due to the fact that U2 will be playing a show at Scotland’s Hampden Park on the same night.

Police in the area say they do not have the resources or manpower to host two major events in Glasgow at the same time.

U2’s stadium 360 Tour attracts thousands of concert goers, while the Celtic-Arsenal play-off game is expected to be a wild event, given that it involves two British football clubs.

Celtic, however, remains hopeful that the game will take place as planned on Tuesday, August 18, but are still cautioning fans to hold off on making travel plans to Glasgow until the conflict is resolved.
