The Glasgow-based peri-peri chicken restaurant looks set to open an outlet within the ground in an exciting move as the club continues to focus on improving Ibrox catering options.
The club’s catering has often left a lot to be desired and whilst there are still issues being reported, it is clearly something that is at the forefront of the club’s mind.
Improved catering can be seen at sports venues across the globe and an increased focus on this at Ibrox will mean better options for supporters but it’s clear Rangers haven’t got it right just yet.
Black Rooster move comes as Rangers boost Ibrox catering
The club even announced a new catering partnership with Levy UK ahead of the new season which they claim aims to provide “best-in-class matchday food and beverage experiences at Ibrox Stadium” [Rangers].
Whilst that partnership – with a leading provider of these services who works with Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Aston Villa – is likely not connected to Black Rooster or this outlet, it shows the increased emphasis on catering at Ibrox.
Fans had been invited ahead of the new season to try a range of Levy delights but as we previously mentioned, there are still issues that need to be resolved even if it is positive to see the club put focus into this area.
The Ibrox catering has been the butt of a bad joke for a long time and let’s hope the addition of Black Rooster at the ground can satisfy supporters with scrutiny on Levy to also deliver.
The sneak peak comes as Black Rooster prepare a street food van at Ibrox stadium as part of the fan zone for the clash with Kilmarnock.
Rangers marketing director James Bisgrove has previously heralded the partnership and claimed back in August last year that Black Rooster would be boosting catering at Ibrox.
“Black Rooster is one of the fastest growing restaurants in the UK and, like Rangers, are expanding their international footprint with restaurants opening in the Middle East later this year,” said Bisgrove [Rangers].
“It is fantastic to welcome such an ambitious Scottish-based brand as a partner and we look forward to introducing their brilliant menus to our Ibrox match day supporter offering.”
