Half of The Falkirk Stadium’s main stand will be allocated to away supporters for the visit of Rangers later this month.

As with previous years and meetings with the club, the Bairns will create a segregation point close to the halfway line splitting the support into north and south section. Rangers will have the north end of the ground - the traditional away stand and half of the west seats, while Falkirk will be seated on the south side.

A club statement said the Bairns had consulted fans and added: “In taking this decision we have sought to balance the interests of all parties. We appreciate that some season ticket holders in the north section of the Main Stand will be unable to purchase their usual seats for this match. We apologise for this inconvenience but hope that all fans will appreciate the need to ensure that the club maximises revenue from this match.

“To compensate fans who have to move their seats for this match the club will provide, on request, a free ‘bring a friend’ voucher to to a home match of their choice.

“Tickets for the match priced £20 prime, £18 adult, £12 concession and £6 child will go on sale to season ticket holders on Friday. The general sale will commence on Monday.

“Season ticket holders will be able to purchase up to a maximum of four tickets on production of a valid season ticket card, otherwise tickets will be limited to two per person.

“Supporters Clubs and Bus Convenors should contact the club to make special arrangements for the uplift of tickets for their members.

“Falkirk tickets will be available via the club shop or online at www.falkirkfc.co.uk from Monday.”

The last time the Bairns and Rangers met at The Falkirk Stadium a goal from Andy Little split the sides.
