THE Rangers Charity Foundation is to hold two special fan matches at Ibrox on Saturday 12 May and you can sign up now to play.
The Foundation is looking for just 60 players to fill four squads of 15 so get in quick to make sure you don’t lose out on this dream experience.
It is first come first served and those who secure their place will follow in the footsteps of legends by playing on the famous pitch which has seen the likes of Gascoigne, Laudrup and McCoist entertain the Rangers faithful.
Players will enjoy a true First Team matchday experience from start to finish, beginning with entering Ibrox via the iconic Bill Struth Main Stand front door, getting changed in the official dressing rooms, running down the tunnel onto the pitch, playing a 90-minute game with match officials, to having a drink in our players’ lounge afterwards.
To secure your place now, simply click HERE to be taken to the Foundation’s Eventbrite page.
The cost to play is £275 with a £100 non-refundable deposit required when booking. The remainder can be paid right up until matchday on Saturday 12 May. Players can either choose to pay the fee themselves or fundraise. Those who fundraise an additional £100 on top of the match fee will qualify for a True Blue Hero Medal which will be presented by a Rangers First Team Player during a ceremony at Ibrox later in the year.
Players can choose to play at either 12.30pm or 4pm, can pick their position and whether to play in the Home or Away side, with 15 spots available on each. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis and are likely to sell out quickly.
Each side will be made up of one goalkeeper, five defenders, five midfielders and four forwards. A starting 11 will be picked at random on the day for each team with a rolling substitution policy throughout the match. Rangers Community Coaches will be on hand throughout to help with warm-up, team selection and tactics.
Players will be presented with an official Rangers shirt from this season to keep and those in the Home side will change in the Home Dressing Room, with the Away side changing in the Away Dressing Room, which has been used by the likes of Lionel Messi, Ryan Giggs, Ronaldinho and Gianluigi Buffon on some of the great Ibrox European nights.
Guests of those playing are able to come and watch from the Main Stand and after the game a Man of the Match trophy will be awarded.
Players must be aged 16 or over and be fit and able to play a full game. Those taking part will also be required to provide their own shorts, socks, boots and shin guards.
The Rangers Charity Foundation is grateful to the Club for the opportunity to hold Play on the Pitch at Ibrox this season.
