CELTIC FOOTBALL CLUB
One of the world’s most famous soccer clubs, Celtic Football Club has won over 100 trophies in its history. In 1967 the club became the first British team to win the European Cup, coming from behind to beat Inter Milan 2-1 on a famous night in Lisbon. Formed in 1887 to help the local Irish population living in poverty in Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city, Celtic has always had community at its heart and a significant and important connection with its fans.
Celtic’s internationally recognizable brand shines through on enormous Champions League nights, during huge games in the Scottish Premiership, and through the famously vocal devotion of its fans. With 60,000 passionate supporters in the stadium on any given matchday, and far greater numbers in the community beyond, it makes Eleven a perfect fit as a partner.
Our partnership is two-pronged: We ensure a richer and more immersive fan experience in the stadium and across social media by utilizing our award-winning technology, and we help the club form meaningful relationships with local businesses through our community-driven partnership program.
We deliver highly engaging data-driven and stat-led content throughout the club’s home stadium, Celtic Park, via StatTV, and across the globe via the club’s official social media platforms with bespoke StatZone content. StadiumTV also hosts live matchday broadcasts, the latest club news, integrated social media streams, and much more. We deliver reach, engagement, brand impact, commercial value and fan interaction, exclusively through our technology platforms.
Our community partner program connects Celtic with regional brands as part of the club’s proud record of working with the local community. These brands gain powerful exposure to a huge audience at Celtic Park and beyond digitally, with Eleven and Celtic working hand-in-hand to set them up with the tools they need to secure new business and achieve meaningful growth in Glasgow and beyond.
We are also honoured to have our own brand proudly worn both by Celtic FC Women and Celtic B.
WHAT WE SAY
Matt Cairns, CEO & Founder: “It was a really proud moment when we first partnered with Celtic. Although we’ve worked with a number of top Premier League clubs, Celtic have won more trophies than any other British club and have legend status among football’s elite. They’ve certainly got true global support, and we’re proud to engage and speak to those fans on the club’s behalf. To be given the responsibility and trust to deliver on Celtic’s fan engagement objectives was a tremendous moment in our growth as a business and we cannot wait to continue our partnership with the club into a new era.”
WHAT THEY SAY
Adrian Filby, Commercial Director, Celtic: “Eleven is all about enabling local and community-led businesses to be integrated into the club in a way that we couldn’t do ourselves because of the amount of staffing it would require. The number of partnerships that Eleven brings to the table is unique, and therefore it’s been a great fit for us. To give us that level of access and reach, and to give us this kind of support and relationship-building with local businesses, is so strong. It’s critical for us.”
