Just to clear this up..

The Celtic Football and Athletic Company Ltd

I think when you have been asked the same question about six times in a few days it’s worth explaining the issue here. If a football club is liquidated it’s finished. Continuity with its history and records ends. This is not the same as a football company changing its name.

Celtic was established as a sporting club at a meeting in a church hall in November 1887, in many ways, no different than a million other football, karate and badminton clubs. It subsequently registered with the SFA in 1888. In April 1897 it incorporated as a private limited company, registering as The Celtic Football and Athletic Company Ltd at Companies House. It was the 3487 th company to register in Scotland and was given the incorporation number SC003487.

In 1994 the company became a public limited company and changed its name to Celtic PLC but, of course, remained the same company, with the same incorporation number and retained the same registration with the SFA. You can check our corporate history, from incorporation in 1879, to name change in 1994 to our most recent annual return, dated 31 December 2011, at Companies House here.

On the same day Celtic changed its name to Celtic PLC, Fergus McCann changed the name of an off the shelf company, securing the old trading name β€˜The Celtic Football and Athletic Company Ltd’, which is fully owned by Celtic PLC, but is not registered as a football club. I assume this was to secure our old name for the club and to protect it from potential abuse.

Great to get some new material here.

This OP is sort of the opposite of a couple of posters on here...it mainly shows up when Celtic lose an OF.

This is hilarious.

Football clubs are different to other institutions in that their survival is based on their fans.

Black Sabbath changed their lead singer yet people still referred to them as Black Sabbath.

Like music, football is a social institution. The band only ever dies when the fans decide it has.

I wonder if someone took all the financial assets from me and stripped away my 2 degrees, if my wife, daughter and friends would stop acknowledging me as the person I am.

Or whether I am who I am, regardless of the assets, titles and finances i have.

I wonder if my friends would stop coming round every Friday night to play poker and drink whisky if my name wasn't the same on my tax receipts.

The day we let a football club be classified as a human entity with a potential to die is the day sport as we know it dies.

Cancel your sky and bt subscriptions, stop going to games. Then the club dies.

This is a past time ffs πŸ˜‚

As a side note, the way we treat corporate institutions in the same way we treat working human beings is ridiculous in itself! People get mad at corporations not paying tax the same way they would at people, which is hilarious!

Unfortunately none of this has any relevance to the way the law treats business entities. They are registered. They are not treated as if they were a person. In no way whatsoever. It’s a legal situation governed by a completely different set of rules and regulations.

That aside; to me they are still the same shower of cwnts they’ve always been, history or not
