Following a significant period of consultation with the supporters and the numerous stakeholders, the Scottish professional football club Rangers F.C. has announced new seating arrangements within their residence – the Ibrox Stadium in Glasgow, Scotland (UK) – effective from season 2024-2025.

‘RANGERS FOOTBALL CLUB’ stated that as has been the club’s long-term ambition, a number of new accessible viewing positions is to be added to the rear of the Copland Front (stand), increasing the overall wheelchair-accessible spaces to 153 – the highest of any stadium in the Scottish Premiership.

The Rangers Football Club is a Scottish professional football club based in the Govan district of Glasgow (Scotland, UK) which plays in the Scottish Premiership (the top division of the Scottish Professional Football League). Although not its official name, it is often referred to as the Glasgow Rangers outside Scotland.

The Ibrox Stadium is a football stadium on the South side of the River Clyde in the Ibrox area of Glasgow, Scotland (UK). The home of the Scottish Premiership team Rangers Football Club, Ibrox is the third largest football stadium in Scotland, with an all-seated capacity of 50,817.

‘RANGERS FOOTBALL CLUB’ further stated that additionally, following trials earlier in the season and further to supporter and men’s first-team player feedback, the club will introduce an expanded singing section within the Copland Front.

The Ibrox atmosphere is renowned the world over, and the club are committed to enhancing that even further to ensure its famous home remains one of football’s most iconic venues.

Allied to these changes, a new cantilever will be constructed at the front of the Copland Rear with almost 1,000 new seats, meaning a net-capacity increase of almost 600, with these new seats having some of the best views of the Ibrox pitch.

As part of this, a number of supporters in the existing seats will be relocated, and the club are extremely cognisant of the emotional attachment they may have to their place within the stadium. The new accessible platform will replace the five back rows across CF1 to CF5 Rows W, X, Y, Z, and AA and the singing section will be located at CF3 seats 86-99 and CF4 seats 100-113.

Those being displaced will have the first opportunity to renew within the new cantilever, and they will also be automatically offered seats beside their current friendship and family groups, should they be impacted by the changes.

Supporters who move to the new cantilever section are sure to enjoy the upgrade to these fantastic new seats. Of course, that change may not be the preference of individuals, and in those circumstances, they will have priority for seat moves following season ticket renewal.

The club has prepared an extensive Q&A document which can be viewed HERE. All the affected supporters have also been contacted directly by the club recently.

A dedicated, in-person session for the affected supporters will also be held with the club management on February 12th.
