Media | About Celtic
Fanzines have been an integral part of football culture since the 1980s when they became the weapon of choice for supports across Britain. Hundreds of genuine fans, fed up with their image being tarnished by the hooligan minority, used the fanzine to fight back against attacks on the game and clubs they loved by the then Conservative Government as well disintrested and freeloading club chairmen and owners.

However, while Celtic fans were also quick to take to the typewriters during this period, the Hoops can boast a fanzine heritage which goes all the way back to the 1960s and The Shamrock (See Below). Indeed The Shamrock could well be the first ever football fanzine.

To find out more about Celtic fanzines check out the links below and take a look at 'The Shamrock - Birth Of The Fanzine' from the 'Soul Of Celtic' series.

Online Collections

Most clubs would be lucky to have one half-decent website dedicated to programmes, fanzines and collectables. But Celtic have not one but two fantastic sites on this very subject -Celtic Programmes Online and the Celtic Collectors Club. These sites are among the very best Celtic sites on the web and both are well worth a very regular visit.
