Can we ?

What a message that would be to the SPL administration league.

Considering at the end of last season with the club begging people to turn up we couldn't sell out Ibrox for those games then I would say that we would be doing very well to get over 40k for any game at all.

Im not going to be surprised at crowds of 30000 if we are lucky. A chance here to get kids in for buttons and develop a new support along with new team.

That would be absolutely incredible !

Rangers should look at keeping the prices as low as possible making it more affordable for youngsters to get along.

Following your team these days isn't cheap but there's an opportunity here to fill Ibrox every second week.

Will Rangers do this ? Probably not.

30k in the 3rd division would be a good support.

Rangers need to get the pricing right here, offer incentives for bringing youngsters to the games etc.

No doubt we will get around 25 to 30k mark.

AWAY games a cert. Home games, even 25K would be agreat support and with wages down to Div 3 levels would be good profit margin.

No, it won't happen.

And if 50/50 gate money comes in then we will be struggling big time.

Not a hope in hell. We couldn't fill Ibrox toward the end of last season when we were on our knees.

NO Not while Green is in Charge. This Bear will not darken the doors of Ibrox until he has gone.

Keep up the financial pressure and he WILL GO, give in (as many appear to be doing), and he will stunt the re-growth of our great club.

If I were chairman of Auchenshuggle United in Div 3, I would be trying to get all four games against Rangers played at Ibrox. (With the exception of Queens Park)

Of course it would not be allowed, but that amount of revenue would set their club up for years.

I said the same - play every game at Ibrox.

Then split the gate receipts 50/50 with the 'home' team.

More money for us and a veritable jackpot for everyone else.

first one maybe but after that half full at best.

no chance, reckon we'll be doing well if we get 15-20000

So we open Ibrox double the time?
Pay double the policing costs?
Pay double the kiosk staff?

Yet only get the same money?

We should be offering out free tickets to local schools if we cant sell out.

Get the next batch of bears coming through!

Think the other teams will benefit quite handsomely when the Rangers come to town (apart from Clyde), it will be hard enough running Ibrox, Murray Park without giving other teams handouts,

i reckon about 30k would be acceptable. As others have said though, child tickets for a fiver or something would be a great idea to fill the rest of it out. You don't make anything off empty seats and even a few thousand extra fivers are better than a few thousand blue seats.

25,000 Average at home would be some achievement, as i have stated on numerous occassions the travelling Rangers support from Ulster,up North and down South will be reduced in numbers,also Will East Stirling at home on a Wednesday night entice people away from their homes on a winters night?
In regards to away games a sellout is guaranteed with the exception of Queens Park for obvious reasons.
