Scottish Champion Celtic FC invade America in July

The summer international club matches are starting to line up as two MLS clubs have signed up to play Celtic FC.

DC United has announced that they will play the 2005-06 Scottish Premier League champions on July 12th at 7:30pm et.

United played Chelsea last summer and while Celtic is not on the same level as the blues, they still offer some solid talent. First and foremost is former Man United star Roy Keane who joined the team in December. When Keane pulls himself together, he can still perform magic in the midfield.

Tickets for the match cost between $30-60 for the match or you can get a better deal by getting a 'Celtic FC Four pack" which gives you four tickets to this game and any other home MLS game of the season.

A week later, the New England Revolution will get their shot at the storied Scottish club. This will be interesting as the area has at least five Celtic supporters clubs, including chapters in Boston, Quincy, Allston/Brighton, Nantucket and Connecticut.

Tickets are $25-45 with large discounts given to groups of 20 or more.
