Rangers announce new Ibrox plans for next season as capacity set to increase SNS Group

Rangers have set out new plans for Ibrox Stadium that will come into effect at the start of next season including an increased capacity.

The club announced new seating arrangements for the 2024/25 season on Thursday.

As well as increasing the total capacity by almost 600 they will also expand their wheelchair accessible area spaces to 153.

They say the increase will mean that Ibrox will have more wheelchair accessible seating than any other stadium in Scotland.

An expanded singing section within the Copland Front part of Ibrox will also be introduced and a new cantilever will be constructed at the front of the Copland Rear.

Rangers say that the new seats will have “some of the best views of the pitch in the entire stadium”.

Supporters currently situated in the areas of the new wheelchair accessible space and expanded singing section will be given an option to renew within the new cantilever.

A statement published on their website said: “As part of this, a number of supporters in 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 backrows 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.”
