Despite everything, football is still the main driver of this rivalry. Because for all their differences, Celtic and Rangers have one thing in common – an endless obsession with being the best.

This trip lets you see the Old Firm Derby through the eyes of a Celtic fan. Your weekend in Glasgow will be led by a lifelong Celtic supporter and one of our longest-serving local guides.

You will get the inside track on Glasgow’s rich football culture. Taking you to the best of the city and letting you experience the Old Firm the local way.

Your tour includes accommodation at the 4*  Maldron hotel, local activities organised by the host,  and match tickets. Your local host will also have plenty of ideas for your spare time.

FAQs

Do I have to pay the full amount when I book?

You can do it if you wish.

You can also secure your spot with a deposit, and then pay the balance in up to two instalments no later than 60 days before you travel. In this way you can organise yourself and plan ahead with time!

What does a trip include?

A trip on the Homefans marketplace is a carefully hand-picked experience curated by Homefans and the local hosts in the destination to offer a unique sports experience through local eyes.

It usually includes the following:

  • Match Ticket
  • Local Host
  • Pre-Match Experience with local fans
  • Pre-arranged activities

In some cases more activities will be added or some will be omitted (and mentioned in the inclusions)

Where in the stadium will we be sitting?

If we know where you will be sitting, we always mention this is in the inclusions section.

Unfortunately, we are not always able to tell you that at the time of booking. However, our destination managers and local hosts work tirelessly to make sure you get the best seats.

We always aim for the long side of the home supporters section.

Can I upgrade my seat location?

We can always upgrade the seat location based on availability, at an extra cost. We do recommend that the group  stays together in the same area to get the most out of this experience, but if you would like to enquire about an upgrade, feel free to get in touch.

How many people will be on the tour?

The maximum number of people the host will allow is stated above.

However,  this number may not always be met and it may even be possible that your party is on the tour on your own.

Higher numbers make for a more sociable experience, lower numbers make for more personalised attention from your host. Look at it as a win/win!

How do you plan and execute your trips seamlessly?

The trips and activities on the Homefans marketplace are designed and executed by fully-vetted locals, and supervised and monitored by Homefans.

All bookings made on Homefans are backed by our Buyer Guarantee so you have a peace on mind when booking.

With more than 10,000+ customers , Homefans is one of the biggest specialised sports marketplaces in the world.

Can children / young adults join the tour?

Homefans is for everyone!

If we can accept children, there will be an option to do so in the booking flow. However, for some trips, our local hosts take the decision to open this up to adults only, based on the content of the tour. If you are looking to travel with under 18’s, please feel free to contact us and we can discuss your options.

Will I have to share a room?

In order to keep competitive prices,  the trips on the Homefans marketplace always offer prices based on 2 people sharing.

If you wish to stay on your own in a single room, you may pay a supplement for a guaranteed single room. This can be found on the extras section at checkout and you can add it to the booking. You can also get in touch with us to arrange this.

Can I extend my stay / upgrade my hotel?

Yes, you can extend your stay by clicking on the EXTRAS section at checkout, choosing the number of extra nights you wish to extend your stay.

For a hotel upgrade, please get in touch with Homefans and we will assist you in this matter.

Can I cancel my trip if I cannot travel?

If you foresee that you cannot longer attend this trip, we appreciate if you let us know with time in advance.

According to our Terms & Conditions , if you tell us 45 days before the trip starts, we can keep your deposit and transfer it to another future trip or use it as credit.  The deposit payment is non-refundable and non-transferrable.

Why are there local hosts on the trips?

Homefans was created to address a pain point we experienced quite often. You travel abroad to watch a sporting event, yet once you arrive, you still feel like an outsider, with a lack of knowledge around the destination and the event.

The local hosts on the Homefans marketplace address this issue by becoming the local link to your trip. They enhance the experience completely, and create that necessary human connection – and will surely become friends in the future!

Mr

What a brilliant trip with Homefans. The whole experience was absolutely amazing and well organised. This is a game you need to experience in your lifetime if you are fanatical about footy. I have used Homefans in the past for this fixture before, what makes the trip 10 times better is the local host Lindsay she is a brilliant host who is friendly, funny and has vast knowledge of the Scottish game. The trip also allows you to meet new people as well, myself and my father met up with old friends met through HomeFans previously and made new friends on this trip. The group we had for the trip was amazing and I could not of asked for a better bunch of folk to spend it with. Folks if you want a footy experience to never forget get an old firm booked asap. Trip made even better with the hoops scoring in the last minute. 🍀

What an incredible trip - amazing seats at Celtic Park for 2-1 derby win, three nights at convenient and comfortable downtown hotel, and most importantly our brilliant host Lindsay! She made the matchday logistics so smooth and easy, and had loads of background to share about her city, club, and experiences as a supporter. Total rock star :)

Snowy Old Firm Derby

Lindsay was a super great host. She guided us through a snowstorm to some supporters pubs and to the stadium before the game. She offered plenty support and recommendations for after. The game is absolutely mind blowing, worth every penny. Hotel was very nice too. Can’t want to book another trip with Homefans.

Old Firm December 2023

Lindsay was a great host who helped a group of 20 navigate our way to Celtic Park for a beer beforehand and into the game. The atmosphere was everything it’s cracked up to be and the homefans team and Lindsay were excellent through and through. Thanks again!

Top class trip

Great hotel, great host (Lindsay) and great experience watching the Glasgow derby at Celtic Park. We have also seen Partick Thistle vs. Queens Park FC and did a tour at Hampden Park We had three great days in Glasgow. Lindsay is a great host and she dealt with some issues very well. And she is very good company before and after the match.

Wow. What a weekend. Celtic battered Rangers 4-0 and scored three times at our end. Paradise indeed!! Lindsay was a top host, she KNOWS everything that matters about the Bhoys in green & white. Lindsay organised getting us on the stadium tour on Sunday morning. Another wow! Hotel was excellent and perfectly located (near Central Station so we saw Pollock v Leith on Friday night). We wpuld recommend this intense experience to any real football fan.

Brilliant Trip

I couldn't recommend enough! The host Lindsay was superb and had a great knowledge of the club and Scottish football. On day 1, we were took to the 'non-league' Celtic to see the St Roch's play. It was a great experience and there was a brilliant atmosphere and community feel. Following that, we were took for food round the west end then a scoot round the underground to city centre to see some of the local celtic bars. That was a great night! The matchday experience was unbelievable. While Celtic could only draw, the atmosphere of derby day was something to behold. We were also gifted a scarf and a hat which was a nice touch. Would definitely recommend and would definitely go again!

Glasgow Derby Semi Final Celtic vs Rangers

What a phenomenal trip (except the result). Our host Lindsay was brilliant she was friendly and really knowledgeable about the Scottish game. The Maldron was a brilliant hotel very central couldn’t complain good breakfast which was included in the deal. First night we all went to a pub near the hotel the two other lads and Lindsay what a laugh we had couldn’t of ask for a better bunch. The atmosphere at the game was amazing, you have to experience a Celtic vs Rangers game nothing like it. Shame about the result but Lindsay and the two lads we met made the weekend for us. This was our second trip with HomeFans definitely will be booking another trip soon plus the whole package was value for money. Thanks for the Scarfs and Hats Homefans

Celtic v Rangers - Scottish Cup Semi @Hampden

Had an amazing trip. Everything (apart from the result) was just about perfect. Our local guide - Lindsay - was an absolute star. Went above and beyond, even taking me to the Partick game on the Saturday (not included in the original itinerary). Super knowledgeable and friendly. There were 3 other people in the group and I could not have wished for a better bunch to watch my first Glasgow derby with. We just clicked immediately and all had a great time. Hotel (Maldron) was spot on. When you add up all the various components of the weekend it is really good value. It was my first trip with Homefans and will definitely be using them again for season 2022/23.

Glasgow Derby - Celtic v Rangers - Scottish Cup Semi Final

First time booking with Home Fans and the only negative was the result of the game. Our local host Lindsay was super friendly and took the group of 4 to a nice pub on the Saturday where we all had a great craic, as we say here in Dublin. The Maldron Hotel was perfectly situated too and was good accommodation. Breakfast was included too. On arrival to the hotel I received my match ticket and a Celtic Hat and Scarf which was cool. Match Day we went to a hardcore Celtic pub then off to the game. A bucket list match, incredible atmosphere, the best I've experienced. I found the trip great value. The social aspect of it is something you can't put a price on. I got very lucky with the three guys I met on the trip and of course our wonderful host Lindsay. 5 stars. Will be booking again for sure.

Great experience with a friendly local!

This was my first time booking through Homefans and I will definitely book there again next time. We were supposed to go during the new years eve, but because of COVID-19 the match was postponed. We have been kept very well informed during the certain days. Once in Glasgow, we also visited another match on the advice of Homefans (Patrick Thistle against Ayr). A very nice old stadium with only room for 10.000 people. On matchday we had an awesome local that also took us to the pubs. She knew so much about the history of Celtic. And then the derby... Celtic won with 3-0 against Rangers, it was a madhouse! What an experience and what a great trip. I'll definitely go back to Scotland one day.

One of the best trips so far!

Our weekend to Glasgow was really great! The Old Firm was a game that we really wanted to visit. And the atmosphere was amazing. But also the city of Glasgow is really nice and thanks to our Homefans guide we had a fantastic weekend!
