Club 1872 urges our members and the wider Rangers support to submit objections to the proposed match day parking restrictions around Ibrox, prior to the deadline of Friday 25th May. The impact of these restrictions on the vast majority of supporters travelling to Ibrox cannot be understated. The geographical area covered by the restrictions is very large and will impact almost everyone who travels to Ibrox by car or on a supporters bus.
The proposals as they stand have been poorly thought through and appear to have been implemented without any consideration for the Rangers support. The restrictions exist in isolation with no additional transport provisions being provided for supporters. Without any improvements to public transport links to the stadium, perceived issues with parking will simply be shifted to outlying areas whilst at the same time impacting supporters, particularly the elderly and disabled. If Glasgow City Council wished to impose such restrictions they should have done so cooperatively and ensured that viable alternatives were provided, This has not been the case.
These restrictions will affect not only those who travel by car but also our Rangers Supporters Clubs. The current proposals have not made adequate provision for bus parking and will impact supporters travelling to Ibrox on supporters buses from all over Britain.
In line with our members’ vote last year, Club 1872 will be submitting an organisational objection to GCC. However we would urge individual supporters to take the time to write a short email outlining their concerns about the proposals to. All submissions must be received by Friday 25th May. It will be much harder to have the proposals amended or blocked once this deadline has passed so we would urge supporters to act now.< Back
