Rangers’ hopes of exceptional Dortmund support crumble as club reveal ‘disappointment’ with Europa League fan cap


Rangers fans have been told numbers could be limited to just 500 for the glamorous trip to Borussia Dortmund.

The Europa League draw has prompted a tantalizing clash with the Bundesliga giants, with fans dreaming of a trip to the 81,000-seat Westfalenstadion.

Rangers would have expected a huge following to see Gio van Bronckhorst’s side test their mettle against Erling Haaland.

With Germany now rolling back some of the regulations put in place for venues, fans’ hopes have been raised by an increase in the number of people given the green light to travel.

The 16 federal chancelleries and the federal government have agreed to allow up to 50% or a maximum of 10,000 supporters for Bundesliga clubs.

Despite this, the Premiership champions are only able to offer their support for 500 tickets.

A club statement read: “Rangers have been awarded 500 tickets for next Thursday’s UEFA Europa League game at Borussia Dortmund.

“The capacity for the match has been set at 10,000, and while we share our supporters’ disappointment at not having a larger allocation, we are delighted to have away supporters in the stadium.

“MyGers members will soon be emailed to register to vote, and we expect demand to far exceed supply for this game.”
