Club looking to increase capacity to 56,000

Rangers planning to expand capacity at Ibrox

Friday 2nd August 2019

Scottish giants Glasgow Rangers are exploring the possibility of increasing the capacity of their Ibrox stadium.

The club are exploring options, but are hoping to add around 5,000 new seats, taking the total capacity from the current 50,817 to around 56,000.

The project is in the early phases of planning with a feasibility study currently underway. The hope is to increase capacity with small improvements as opposed to a big change like adding a new tier onto one of the stands.

It can't be argued at Rangers don’t need the extra seats - the club have had to suspend season ticket sales after selling 45,757 beating last year’s record of 45,419. With 14,000 people on the waiting list, it could be argued that ‘Gers should be adding more than the rumoured extra 5,000.
