Outnumbered at home

Just in the process of getting my ticket for Brisbane Roar vs Celtic, a pre-season match over here in July. Now by all accounts every exiled Celtic fan and Irishman in Australia is heading to Brisbane for this game and despite being at home Roar fans (such as myself) will be seriously outnumbered. There will be 52,000 in a sell out crowd and I'd say over 35,000 will be there to see Celtic.

Now I can't recall this ever happening at Roots Hall during my time but has anyone else ever been to a game where the home fans are in such a big minority compared to the away fans?
