This September, Celtic fan and actor James McAvoy is trading the glitz and glamour of the silver screen for the turf of East End Park, as he becomes the latest addition to the Celtic Legends’ squad for the Jock Stein 30th Anniversary Charity Match, sponsored by Direct Slating Supplies.
A lifelong Celtic fan, the Glaswegian actor also spoke passionately about the legendary Jock Stein and the importance of honouring the club’s charitable beginnings and identity.
He said: “Jock Stein and everything he achieved, it’s part of what has made Celtic a special club, and not just a club that happens to be in a huge city with a vocal support.
“What makes this club something else, it’s not just that night in Lisbon, it’s the entire journey towards that night.
“It’s also that star on the strip that very few teams get to wear that puts Celtic in a different place.
The Jock Stein 30th Anniversary Charity Match takes place on Sunday, September 6 at East End Park (KO 2pm).
Tickets for the match, priced at £12 for adults and £6 for concessions, are available ONLINE, by calling 0871 226 1888* or by visiting the Celtic Ticket Office.
