Glasgow Rangers have confirmed they have sold all of their season tickets for the sixth successive season.
The Lowdown: Next season remains uncertain
This past term was a magnificent one for the Gers as they won the Premiership for the first time in 10 years without losing a single game in the competition (thefishy.co.uk).
However, their fans were unable to enjoy it at the stadium due to the coronavirus pandemic, and it remains unclear as to whether grounds will return to full capacity next term.
The Latest: Gers sell out
Even despite the uncertainty, though, the Gers have confirmed they have sold out their ticket allocation for this coming term – that amounts to 45,000 tickets (rangers.co.uk).
Michael Beale, one of the Gers coaches, said the news was “incredible”.
The Verdict: Huge support
This is another example of exactly how ferociously loyal the Rangers fanbase is. Yes, they won the league last season and are therefore in a good place, but to pay hundreds of pounds without knowing whether they will even be able to attend is astounding.
And throughout the last six years, there has not been too much success to enjoy, either – the Rangers supporters are present come rain or shine.
Did you manage to get a season ticket?
From a financial point of view, this will come as a huge boost to the Gers. The cheapest season ticket at Ibrox costs £372 (statista.com), meaning the club will receive a minimum £16.4m – it is likely to be a fair bit more. As the Gers prepare for a potential Champions League run next term, this windfall could come in very handy.
