If you’re travelling to Ibrox on Saturday please read the important matchday advice below from Police Scotland:
Thistle fans attending Ibrox on Saturday by SPTE Underground are advised to alight at the Govan underground station and walk the short distance along Broomloan Road to approach the stadium. The use of Ibrox and Cessnock stations are not advised.
The Thistle fans will be accommodated within the north west corner of Ibrox Stadium and will enter via turnstiles 76 & 77.
Using Govan underground station and approaching via Broomloan Road, is the safest and most convenient route for Thistle fans.
The drivers of Thistle supporters’ coaches are advised to park on Broomloan Road on the south bound carriageway, as the road network surrounding Ibrox is extremely congested post match due to the sheer volume of vehicles, Thistle buses are advised to park at this location and, on departure, travel onto the motorway for an easier journey.
Supporters’ Private Cars
Please be informed that a crowd of over 48,000 is expected on Saturday and the road network surrounding Ibrox becomes severely congested. Please arrive at the stadium early and allow plenty of time for your journey. Parking on Broomloan Road (there will be some scheduled coning to prevent parking at certain areas along Broomloan Road) and surrounding streets is the advised area to park.
Finally, dependent on the circumstances on the day, Thistle fans may be requested to remain in the stadium for a short period of time after the final whistle. This is purely in the interests of safety and allows for the surrounding vicinity of the stadium to become clear of Rangers fans exiting and thus allows Thistle fans an easier and safer departure from the stadium. Your co-operation is appreciated regarding this.
