It has been revealed that Glasgow Rangers and the rest of the sides in Scotland’s top tier will resume the country’s elite division in August.
The 2019/20 campaign was recently brought to a premature close as a result of the pandemic that has recently wreaked havoc across the planet. Scottish football will need to start up again at some point, and the plan is now that the new term will kick off in two months in tandem with the new Sky TV deal.
Of course, even though the sport will return, fans will not be allowed into stadiums – but the SPFL have revealed how they still plan to help fans see matches. In an announcement, they say that Scottish Premiership clubs will offer virtual season tickets to supporters, allowing them to buy a Sky package to follow their side and enable clubs to make vital matchday revenue.
Will you buy a virtual season ticket?
This, though, has not gone down too well with the Rangers fans, with some worried that this package will be at an extra cost on top of the season tickets they have already bought – one supporter even called this update “disgraceful.”
They have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
Football is dead here….

Its a shambles pal and it’s disgraceful that they can’t update us on BT Sports liabilities and the new league sponsor.
For the virtual ST it sounds like it’s down to the individual clubs. Would be suprised if clubs try to double charge a punter for non sky home games.

Ridiculous. Season ticket holders of every club are being shafted by SPFL incompetence https://t.co/oribEObDIH

This is bonkers. Stating the obvious (though for some reason the SPFL can’t see it) but if playing games behind closed doors in August is feasible then we could have played out the rest of 2019/20 and saved Scottish football 10 million quid… https://t.co/dtWL1N5mnn
