    Rangers play at Ibrox Stadium which with a capacity of 50,817, is the third largest stadium in Scotland.

    The stadium opened it doors in 1899 on the 30th December when Rangers beat Hearts 3-1 and since then has gone under some drastic renovations.

    The 1971 Ibrox disaster brought the biggest changes to the stadium when it started to look at a more modern, safe stadium.

    In 1978, redevelopment started with the bowl-shaped terracing being reshaped to make way for three new all-seated stands with only the main stand remaining.

    A third-tier was added in 1991 to the main stand and further renovations have took place over the years to bring the capacity up to 50,000 in 1997. When these were completed, the stadium was renamed from Ibrox Park to Ibrox Stadium.  

    Travelling to Ibrox
    Ibrox Stadium is one of the most accessible grounds in European football, with first class public transport, road and airport links.

    By Car
    Strathclyde Police, in consultation with Rangers Football Club, is advising football fans and supporters associations to take the following routes if travelling via the M8 and M74 (westbound) to home games at Ibrox Stadium for the 2012/13 season.

    As the M8, travelling west from the Kingston Bridge, no longer allows vehicular traffic to take the off ramp at Junction 23 (Dumbreck Road), traffic must now exit at either Junction 24 (Helen Street), Junction 25 (Cardonald) or Junction 26 (Hillington). Drivers are encouraged to check local maps to plan an alternative route to Ibrox Stadium should Junction 24 be congested and tailing back onto the main carriageway.

    The M74 westbound (new section of road) joins just prior to Junction 24 of the M8. Drivers of westbound vehicles travelling to Ibrox for home games are encouraged to exit at Tradeston where they can either travel onto the M77 and come off at Junction 1 (Dumbreck Road) or turn right onto Carnoustie Street and left onto Paisley Road and head to Ibrox Stadium from there.

    By Subway
    The most convenient way to reach Ibrox Stadium is by Subway. From Ibrox subway station, the Stadium is just a short walk away. From Glasgow’s city centre the Subway takes 10 to 15 minutes travelling on the Outer Circle, and just a few minutes more in the other direction on the Inner Circle. With trains arriving and departing approximately every five minutes – it is a popular choice of transport for visitors.

    By Bus
    Bus links from Glasgow are frequent, with bus stops to all points within 300 yards of the Stadium. Visit travelinescotland.com for a detailed list of bus times from any point in Scotland.
