The SPFL have provided important supporter information ahead of Rangers’ Premier Sports Cup semi-final against Hibernian at Hampden Park.
The Gers are taking on the Hibees on Sunday afternoon as they bid to move a step closer to their first major domestic cup win since 2011.
There’s been plenty of upheaval in the run-up to the game with an international break that included an unexpected search for a new manager, but it’s important that the playing squad now focus on what is a big opportunity.
Thousands of fans will be descending upon Hampden both for the 16:00 kick-off on Sunday and for the other semi-final between St Johnstone and Celtic which kicks off at 17:15 on Saturday.
In a bid to speed up the entry process, the SPFL have released an explainer video about the stadium’s ‘access control system’.
Unlike at Ibrox, where QR codes are now used, physical tickets are still required at Hampden.
Fans will need to place their tickets into the readers with the barcodes facing upwards and can move through the turnstile when a green light shows above the reader.
Green and amber lighting simply indicates that a concession ticket has been used, but red and amber lighting indicates that the ticket holder is at the wrong turnstile, while if a red-only light shows, the fan should go to the ticket office.
The turnstiles will open two hours before kick-off and with Covid Passport checks in place, fans are advised to arrive early.
Turnstiles open 2 hours before kick-off.

It’s the first time Rangers fans have been to Hampden to watch their team since the December 2019 League Cup final and there’s sure to be a great atmosphere.
Giovanni van Bronckhorst may not officially be in charge but the fans are preparing a special welcome.
