Rangers supporters group and shareholder Club 1872 has confirmed that the club will grant free ‘virtual season tickets’ to fans who have purchased physical season tickets for the upcoming season.
After Sky and the SPFL announced they would be making all home games available for clubs to stream to their fans while games are played behind closed doors, there was confusion over whether fans would have to cough up twice.
Rangers will update supporters in due course on a number of topics of interest but we are in a position to confirm that season ticket holders will be granted complimentary access to all home games streamed via RTV as a result of those matches being played behind closed doors.

Fans who had already paid for their season ticket to attend games were concerned they would have another substantial expense but those have now been put to bed by Club 1872 – with Rangers announcing that Stewart Robertson will also update them later via RTV.
Giving access to fans who have already bought season tickets is the right move from Rangers and it makes sense not to ask them to spend even more money on games they already have tickets for.
For fans who don’t have season tickets, it will be interesting to see how the games are priced and whether fans are expected to pay similar prices that they would for a match ticket or whether it is closer to the pay per view option available for some fixtures last season (around £10).
With Stewart Robertson expected to give a more detailed update soon, hopefully, the remaining questions are answered as fans look forward to football finally returning.
