Event venue

Rangers have been given permission to sell alcohol at the new event site on matchday

Rangers were allowed to sell alcohol on match days at their new Edmiston House event space.

The club asked for the green light and received a confirmation.

The Glasgow Licensing Board has granted the Ibrox team a provisional license for their new £10million space.

Match days in the new area have already been confirmed to have large screens, player and legend Q&As and photo opportunities.

And this latest booze news is sure to be a major boost for fans of Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s outfit.

Representing the club, Stephen McGowan said: “The Edmiston House proposal is a fantastic addition to the club for the vibrancy of the match experiences, with the interactive museum and everything.

“But more than that, it’s a welcome investment as a wider cultural and event space, especially for this part of the city’s south side.”

Mr McGowan, speaking ahead of the opening this summer, added: “Edmiston House is more than a venue for Rangers. The event space is something they hope to use to attract a wide range of activities. .

“The plan is to use this space as a larger cultural and community destination, in a space that we believe would be a fantastic addition to the south side of the city.

“My clients also see the venue adding more vibrancy to the City of Music badge, which Glasgow wears internationally.”

The site will only be accessible to ticket holders on a given match day and will close 30 minutes before kick-off.

However, the experience may continue after play when reopened.
