Rangers fans invited to take part in special mosaic at Ibrox Stadium

Rangers fans are being invited to submit an image to a fan mosaic being planned for Ibrox whilst parts of the stadium are shut due to the coronavirus lockdown.

Scottish football has not yet made a decision on what happens next for supporters with fans across the country desperate to return to the action as soon as possible.

But whether that means in limited numbers or waiting until we can fill whole stadiums, Rangers are offering fans the chance to fill a seat with a picture of their choosing for £10.

“Football makes its long-awaited return to Ibrox but we expect that fans will be unable to access Ibrox to its full capacity in the short term as we follow the Government guidelines and exit the period of lockdown,” reads a statement on the Rangers website.

“Rangers are offering supporters the chance to be part of the virtual matchday experience and have their picture featured in the Sandy Jardine Stand.

“Rangers are creating a giant crowd mosaic to cover the front of the Sandy Jardine Stand, giving supporters the chance to support the club and play a part in backing the team.

“The mosaic will remain in place until restrictions are lifted in full and we can all return to supporting the team in person.”

The fan mosaic is a creative way to get Rangers fans closer to the action and something which has already been rolled out at clubs and across leagues around Europe.

Rangers fans were also shocked to see Alfredo Morelos in the crowd at Chester FC earlier this month after a cheeky Rangers fan submitted his image to the English side’s fan mosaic.

Uploads cost £10 and spaces are limited so fans are being encouraged to take part early if they want to ensure their picture makes the cut.
