The Evening Times has teamed up with Ford to offer lucky young fans the chance to be on the pitch for the pre-match ceremony at the UEFA Champions League at Celtic Park as the players line up.

Ford is offering a once-in-a-lifetime chance for 11 youngsters to attend the Celtic FC v Juventus game at Celtic Park on Tuesday, February 12.

Back in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 for the first time in five seasons, once again Celtic FC will look to capitalise on their strong home form when they welcome Juventus to Glasgow.

Celtic FC take on the Italian champions, who qualified first in Group E, 11 years after contesting two of the competition's outstanding group stage fixtures – the Hoops winning 4-3 at Celtic Park having lost 3-2 in Turin.

The winners (aged 14-16) will carry the UEFA Starball Banner on to the pitch in the pre-match ceremony before kick-off.

This prize also includes one match ticket each for the children, plus transport to and from Celtic Park.

If you are between 14 and 16 and want to win this unforgettable experience, simply answer the question on the right and get your parent / guardian (over 18) to sign the permission form.

The UEFA Champions League features the best of the best on the ultimate stage, which is why Ford is proud to have been the competition's official vehicle supplier for the last 20 years.

To enter, see the form in today's paper.
