Rangers are allowed to host 12,750 fans for Real Madrid match and 8,500 for Brighton at Ibrox

17,000 Rangers fans will also be in attendance for their first game of the Scottish Premiership against Livingston.

In Saturday’s match against Brighton, Rangers will be allowed to host 8,500 spectators, and in Sunday’s match against Real Madrid, the club will be allowed to host 12,750.

Afterwards, the Ibrox club is expected to welcome up to 17,000 fans to their inaugural Premiership game on July 31 when they host Livingston. Moreover, they believe that, based on the Scottish Government roadmap plans, they can fill their stadium up to maximum capacity for their Champions League qualifier against either Malmo or HJK Helsinki on 10 August. 2,000 Rangers fans were allowed to watch the friendly match between their team and Premier League giants Arsenal only last Saturday.

A club statement on its website read: “Following further discussions with the Scottish Government and local authorities, Rangers have been granted permission to host 8,500 supporters at Saturday’s match with Brighton & Hove Albion, and 12,750 at Sunday’s Real Madrid fixture.”

“The stadium capacity for the upcoming Scottish Premiership opener with Livingston has also been set, with 17,000 fans permitted to attend on July 31,” the statement further read.

On August 9, the remaining Scottish Coronavirus restrictions will be lifted despite the away leg of the match will be played on 3 or 4 August. The game between Celtic and Midtjylland will be played at Celtic Park this Tuesday with the stadium set to host 9,000 supporters for the Champions League qualifier.
