Ibrox To Host SC Semis

Written by 

IBROX Stadium has been chosen to host the Scottish Cup semi-finals next April.

The home of Rangers Football Club will be the venue for both semi-finals on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 April.

As a result, the club’s league fixture with Ayr Utd – due to be played on Saturday 12 April – will now be rescheduled. An announcement on the rearranged fixture date will be made as soon as possible.

Hampden Park will be unavailable due to redevelopment work in preparation for the 2014 Commonwealth Games and the SFA have entered into an agreement with Rangers to stage the semi-finals at Ibrox.

Rangers Finance Director Brian Stockbridge said: “We are delighted Ibrox Stadium has been chosen to host the Scottish Cup semi-finals in April.

“The SFA’s decision to play these ties at the home of Scotland’s most successful club underlines the fact that Ibrox remains one of European football’s elite arenas.

“Of course we hope to travel far in this competition ourselves but no matter who plays at Ibrox they can be certain of the warmest of welcomes.”
