Hibs to screen Rangers clash at Easter Road as capital club bypass Ibrox fan lockdown



Hibs will show next weekend’s clash with Rangers at Easter Road – after fans in the capital have been kicked out of Ibrox.

Teams visiting Glasgow have largely had to do so without away support, with Gers and Celtic insisting that maintaining the ‘red zones’ means season ticket holders need to be moved to sections where outside fans are usually housed.

And Jack Ross’ side are no different for the Premiership clash on October 3, a dress rehearsal for the Premier Sports Cup semi-final the following month.

However, recently built video screens on the club’s grounds in Leith mean the clash will be broadcast live on the other end of the M8.

Hibees season ticket holders can pay £ 5 to access the stadium while food and drink kiosks will also be open – and the first 300 fans to buy tickets will even have access to hospitality, with a front bar. and post-game.

New Hibs CEO Ben Kensell said: “First of all, we were disappointed to learn that our supporters won’t be able to make it to Ibrox early next month, but since that point we have worked without take a break to find the best possible alternative for our supporters to watch the game.

“After looking at different options, we are delighted to be able to stream the game live on our big screens at Easter Road.

“We want to bring all the fans together and create a special experience for all of you on match day.

“The booths will be open, and if we can get a lot of fans, I’m sure we can create a good atmosphere to support Jack’s team together.”
