A new hybrid Rangers pitch is set to be installed at Ibrox in the latest major development at the club’s home.

Rangers already invested heavily in the Hummel Training Centre, both inside and out, including the renovation of three pitches.

With developments continuing there – including the building of a new stand for fans to take in the Academy – it’s an exciting time at the club.

The relaying of this pitch in the close-season will cost close to £1m and is all part of the modernisation of Ibrox.

A statement in Rangers’ Annual Report stated: “Three pitches have been fully renovated, with one having a hybrid surface installed.

“The intention is to also upgrade the Ibrox surface to hybrid in the next close-season.”

Improvements across Ibrox Stadium

The new Rangers pitch isn’t only major investment in the Stadium.

There have been improvements to the ground’s interior, particularly in the Family Stand. The club also introduced gaming stations and Broxi’s Den, an award-winning autism friendly area to watch the match.

Outside the ground, there has been recladding work done on the Copland Road stand and work also started on the Broomloan recently. Glasgow City Council gave the blue light for these developments back in July.


In the Summer, the club also installed new LED lighting in the Sandy Jardine and Copland Stands.

As well as this, Dave King has made repeated commitments to improving the ground both inside and out.

Perhaps most poignantly, Rangers are planning a memorial garden to remember the 66 victims of the Ibrox Disaster.

There is real and positive investment happening in the ground and behind the scenes at Ibrox.
