In a new Soccer Down Here 1v1, Jason Longshore talks to Chris Smith who is the head of the Soccer Academy for Celtic Football Club.
They talk about the importance of having partners in North America, like Tucker Youth Soccer Association here in Georgia, as well as other clubs in the United States and internationally. There is a huge Celtic fanbase all over the world, and these partnerships help the club reach them and connect with them.
Celtic is also a huge reason as to why we have Giorgos Giakoumakis at Atlanta United. A big theme with Celtic F.C. and the academy is to help develop players and give back to the game of soccer.
Women's soccer is growing all over the world, and Celtic is making itself known in that space as well. The women's team for Celtic has seen a large increase in attendance recently. The team played at Celtic Park for one of the last games of last season in front of 15,000 fans.
