The Ibrox Stadium (aka Ibrox Park), ranks among the largest stadiums in the UK. The stadium survived two major mishaps. In 1902, about 500 people suffered injuries and 25 people lost their lives when a part of the stadium caved in during a match between Scotland and England. This happened due to the usage of wooden scaffold, which discontinued after the incident. The next major disaster took place in 1971. About 66 people died when a part of the stadium collapsed towards the exits. The stadium saw several renovations, the last one finished in 1997.
For a complete experience of the park, you must get an ‘ access all areas’ pass. The Ibrox tours include visits to the famous Trophy Room and the home dressing room. You may also go on a virtual tour of the Club’s pioneer training facility at Murray Park. On the match day, the Ibrox offers a number of catering kiosks that sells several snacks, including pies, sausage rolls, etc.
The Rangers Megastore sited between the Govan and Copland stands in the stadium sells replica kits, training gear, retro kits, gifts, leisurewear, accessories, and Homeware.
The Ibrox Bar is located near the Rangers Megastore, in the Ibrox Suite. The bar opens two-and-a-half hours prior to the kickoff and two hours after the whistle blows. The bar has the capacity to accommodate 250 people. Along with delicious food and drinks, you can enjoy the pre-match interviews of the first-team streamed on the large flat TV screens installed in the bar. The Ladbrokes betting facility is also available in this fully licensed bar.
The world-class stadium offers special facilities for the people with crutches, or who are suffering ailments that require extra-leg room. The authorities must be contacted in advance for arrangements.
