The Rangers Women will play their home games at Broadwood Stadium next season in another major step forward for the female game in Scotland.
After the club’s SWPL Championship winning season last year – the first time the Ibrox side have won the tournament – the Gers continue to build on the growing popularity of the game.
The news means that the Rangers Women will now play their games at the 8000-capacity ground rather than at the Ibrox side’s training centre.
The hope is that this will encourage more supporters to follow the Rangers Women this season and it is an exciting move for everyone involved.
“We hope this will be an exciting move for our women’s first-team as we relocate our home games to a new venue,” said Women’s and Girls’ Football Manager Amy McDonald [Rangers].
“It has been fantastic playing our matches at Rangers Training Centre which obviously has state-of-the-art facilities but it has caused some issues around capacity and parking.
“This move will give us the opportunity to provide a more enjoyable matchday experience for supporters and hopefully encourage many more to come and support the squad.”
Exciting time for Rangers women and women’s football
Rangers have taken a pioneering role in the development of women’s football over the last two seasons and will now see their club enter the Champions League for the first time.
It’s an exciting time for the game in Scotland and beyond and the news follows the success of the England Women’s team down south, who lifted the European Championships this summer.
The news is also supplemented by the announcement that a Women’s Scottish Cup will be launched this season, with the semi-finals and final to be played at Hampden.
Malky Thomson’s Rangers Women continue to go from strength-to-strength and will kick off this season’s campaign at home to Glasgow Women on August 7th.
The club continue to make moves to strengthen the squad and have just announced the signing of Hannah Davison from Swedish club AIK.
This follows the signings of Jenny Danielson from the Swedish club, Collette Cavanagh from Hibernian, Victoria Essen of SC Sand and Dina Orschmann from Turbine Potsdam.
Speaking of the Rangers Women, the club also won the inaugural Women’s City of Glasgow Cup by defeating Old Firm rivals Celtic.
