Celtic did not publish a match programme until 1946. Older programmes exist but these were the work of private companies. The first official programme publish by the Club was for a 2-2 draw against Clyde at Celtic Park on the 14th of December 1946.
Tom McGouran is a Celtic supporter, collector and the author of two books related to collecting Celtic matchday programmes that were an absolute must for collectors in the days before the Internet. Yes the world did exist before the WWW.

Celtic Football Club have a long history of playing football in the North American continent. Not surprising when you realise that they have thousands of supporters there that deserve to see their heroes in the flesh every few years.
From the first ever tour of the USA taken during the Great Depression of the 1930's through to their latest visit to Philadelphia to play Real Madrid in 2012, Celtic have played over 100 games in the vast continent producing many programmes,some of them very rare indeed and very valuable.
