Rangers are set to be handed 3500 tickets for their upcoming Scottish Cup tie with Cowdenbeath on the 18th of January.
Central Park, Cowdenbeath’s stadium, only has a capacity of 4,309. That means Rangers fans will make up the bulk of the Scottish League Two outfit’s ground on the day.
The news was announced on Twitter by the club’s Supporter Liaison Officer Greg Marshall. He also indicated that supporters who receive tickets by ballot will be notified tonight.
Cowdenbeath emails will hopefully be out tonight – just under 3,500 tickets allocated to our support

The last time Rangers played Cowdenbeath was back in 2015. However, both sides will pose considerably different threats to each other from their last match three and half years ago.
The Ibrox side played the Blue Brazil four times during the 14/15 season when the clubs were in the Scottish Championship. Rangers won three of the games and drew one. The last match between the sides was a 4-1 Rangers win at Ibrox in March 2015.
The last time Rangers travelled to Central Park, they were held to a 0-0 draw. Things have obviously taken a turn for the worse for Cowdenbeath as they now play in the country’s bottom league.
Rangers travel to West Fife to face the Scottish League Two side in a real David v Goliath tie.
The Blue Brazil will be excited at the prospect of welcoming Rangers and it’ll be a big day for the town.
