Rangers are looking at the possibility of opening Edmiston House to supporters as part of the club’s 150th anniversary in 2022.
The facility, in the grounds of Ibrox Stadium, would be used as a facility for supporters. Anything that came of modernising and updating the building could help enhance the matchday experience for fans.
And managing director Stewart Robertson clearly feels the 150th anniversary celebrations are the best time to launch any plans.
“With the club’s 150th anniversary coming up in 2022 there are a couple of feasibility projects going on at the moment in terms of bringing Edmiston House back into use, which would be a great facility for the supporters,” Robertson told Rangers TV.
“There are other areas around the stadium as well which, as we progress that work, we will announce it in due course. But I’m quite excited with the plans that are coming together.”
The statement suggests Rangers will look at how the facility could be used by the club. Previous suggestions have ranged from special Rangers exhibitions to a ticket centre, although Robertson made no suggestion of how Edmiston House could be used here.
The idea is that the space is currently lying derelict and could be put to much better use. At the moment it is simply being used to host the “Icons of Ibrox” banner. By 2022, it could be used for a lot more than that.
The club are looking to introduce a range of measures to improve the matchday experience for fans. One of these included beaming images onto the iconic Bill Struth Main Stand in a match in April.
