Postby jimbob » Tue Nov 18, 2008 8:43 pm


CELTIC travel to Denmark next week to take on Aalborg in the UEFA Champions League and the following information has been collated to help those supporters who are making the trip.

However, first up is a welcoming message from the city’s Mayor, Henning G Jensen who extends a warm handshake to the visiting supporters who have been praised throughout Europe for their behaviour, sportsmanship and support of their team.


[I:e5d49e87]In Aalborg we have a motto “seize the world”. A call to welcome the world with arms wide open and a call to embrace life as it unfolds in the world around us.

Aalborg prides itself in being a very internationally orientated city that loves to celebrate and to have visitors.

It’s also a very sporting city. Therefore it is a great pleasure to welcome Celtic Football Club, the Scottish Champions and their supporters to Aalborg.

I hope that you will enjoy your stay here and take the opportunity to experience some of the many things the city has too offer.

We look forward to an exciting match with great sportsmanship.
