PostSubject: Uefa bans Celtic anthem   Thu Oct 05, 2006 6:40 pm

Quote :
CELTIC have been forced to ditch fans' favourite You'll Never Walk Alone before Champions League games at Parkhead.
Furious supporters contacted the club after the football anthem was red-carded from their recent game against Danish team FC Copenhagen.
The Gerry and the Pacemakers hit has been played over the Celtic Park Tannoy for the past 30 years before kick-off. But now Uefa officials have said Celtic must play only the Champions League anthem and advertisers' slogans prior to kick-off.
Last night Celtic match compere Tony Hamilton told The Celtic View that Uefa rules meant the club had been forced to bin the fans' usual pre-match ritual.
He said: "Uefa has a document which counts down what should happen across each Champions League venue up to 7.45pm before the games kick off.
"This document tells us that at 7.42pm hours we should play a 40-second version of
the Champions League theme as the last player falls into line. We're then told to play nothing else or make any further announcements."
Last night, outraged fans criticised what they see as a snub to one of the club's traditions.
A spokesman for the Celtic Supporters' Association said: "You'll Never Walk Alone is part of the whole experience of going to the big games at Celtic Park. Celtic should speak to Uefa about this and we'll be bringing it up at our next meeting with Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell."
Last night a Uefa spokesman said: "Every club in the Champions League is issued with instructions regarding the organisation of events before the start of matches.
"All clubs taking part must adhere to these instructions, which include the playing of the Champions League anthem prior to kick-off."

what a load of f*cking rubbish.

Can anyone else see Liverpool fans not signing You'll Never walk Alone before a match? I don't think so because they'd tell officials where to go.

The fans make the atmosphere before matches ans should be allowed to continue.

Was pretty disappointed to hear this but I think it's common practice for UEFA. The singing of YNWA really glamourises the match. Hopefully the fans can start it themselves.

Has Alex McLeish been appointed head of Uefa yet or is he just telling everyone what to do?

Yea and you can't just stop both clubs from singing it as it's a Tradition for both of them and it's part of the reason people look forward to the matches.

Yea it creates the atmosphere and when the players are walking out onto the pitch it lifts their spirits and it will be kind of dull if some dodgy CL music is getting played plus the CL anthem is shit

You don't see Uefa doing anything while Rangers are singing The Billy Boys and Were Up To Our Knees In Fenian Blood but of course that's Rangers and they can sing whatever they want.

The fans can sing it as loud as they wish. Its down to cash, UEFA control everything and make sure that the sponsors get their moneys worth.
They take over the running of the Champions League and decide the format.
All the advertising boards are covered but they are not banned. Lets not panic about this, its not banned just not played publicly because of MONEY

YNWA has not been played on Champions League night for a few seasons. Its not been noticed until the Rags get hysterical

No harm lads but this is sensationalist nonsense blown all out of proportion by Scottish journalist hacks on a quiet news day!! The fact is that UEFA have a directive, plainly stating no music except the official CL music, should be played in the 3 mins before and immediately after KO. This is to be enforced at ALL CL games!!

It is typical of the Scottish Gutter Press to turn this into a story that looks like Celtic have been banned from playing YNWA. They Haven't!!! It can still be played up until 19:42. they also cannot stop the fans from singing it!!

The gutter press in Scotland use every opportunity to stick the boot in at Celtic, whilst ignoring the fact that over at Mordor, the revolution is floundering, Murray is skint, major players are injured and Rangers are now part of the biggest fraud investigation to hit British football!!!( the bung scandals)

This type of reporting looks for a hysterical reaction, don't give it to them!!! We will not be stopped from singing our song, we have not been banned from playing our song and we have not been fined for singing any songs. So let the Scottish Gutter Press, GO TO FCUK!!!

Yeah, it's not banned at all, it just will not be played before the KO, that doesnt mean we can't sing it.

Here's the latest on it from the official site http://www.celticfc.net/newsroom/news.aspx?id='2006-10-05_1445JS'


You'll Never Walk Alone


CELTIC Football Club would like to point out that, contrary to reports in today’s press, You’ll Never Walk Alone as not been ‘banned’ by UEFA.
The simple fact is that every single UCL venue across the length and breadth of the continent is subject to UEFA guidelines on the day of each match and every single team is contracted, as part of the competition rules, to abide by all UCL matchday practice.
As Handel’s Zadok The Priest boomed out over the loudspeaker system at Celtic Park last Tuesday at precisely 19:42, it was simultaneously broadcast at every other UCL venue throughout Europe at exactly the same time…
And at every other ground there was also two minutes and 20 seconds of ‘dead-air time’ following the UEFA hymn – that has always been the case at each of the UEFA Champions League games played at Celtic Park since the club first took part in the newly-formatted competition back in season 2000/01.
You’ll Never Walk Alone has never been played just prior to kick-off at any of these games and the same rule stands at Anfield when Liverpool play UCL games there.
In answer to an enquiry following Celtic’s 1-0 UEFA Champions League win over FC Copenhagen when the traditional club anthem wasn’t played prior to the kick-off, Celtic’s Multi-Media Manager, Tony Hamilton said in this week’s Celtic View:
“UEFA have a document which countdowns what should happen across each UCL venue in uniformity to 19:45 hours (or 20:45 in Central Europe).
“It includes when partners’ adverts are played out, when the UEFA welcomes (in both languages) are read and when the teams emerge from the tunnel and enter the field etc etc.
“So, this document tells us that at 19:42 hours we should play a 40-second version of the UCL theme as the last player falls into line and play nothing else or make any further announcements (in the time we would normally play YNWA) for the remaining two minutes and 20 seconds before the match starts.
“If we played it before this time it would need to be much earlier, when there are very few people in the stadium.
“Technically the stadium is ‘handed over’ to UEFA and their marketing company the day before each match and we need to ask permission for everything we do.”
