RANGERS striker Kenny Miller and 9-in-a-row legend John Brown officially opened Broxi’s Den at Ibrox today, a facility that will allow supporters with complex learning difficulties and sensory challenges such as autism to enjoy matches at the Stadium.
In partnership with the fans, the Club is extremely proud to have developed this new facility based in the Broomloan Stand Corner, which accommodates up to eight supporters and their carers. The suite will help children and young adults with sensory difficulties acclimatise to the noise, crowds and bustle of a busy matchday.
Created following meetings with the Rangers Disability Matters Group, Broxi’s Den opened at last weekend’s SPFL game against Motherwell and going forward, spaces will be allocated on a game by game basis. Children aged between 5 and 12 will receive priority for afternoon games and young adults will have priority for evening matches.
Kenny Miller commented: “It is a great privilege for me to officially open Broxi’s Den at Ibrox today. So many people have worked extremely hard to create this facility and I would like to thank everyone who donated their time and money in order to see it completed.
“It is fantastic we can now offer an area for fans with sensory difficulties to watch their team in a quiet and calm environment.”
John Brown added: “Ibrox Stadium is a fantastic arena to watch football and I applaud everyone at Rangers for developing this facility to allow supporters to attend games who may have previously been unable to do so.”
“Broxi’s Den will also be used to support a range of community programmes and I am sure it will be a great addition to the matchday experience.”
