Lichties’ fans start scramble for tickets for January’s Scottish cup tie with Rangers

TICKETING arrangements for Arbroath FC’s Scottish Cup tie against Rangers have been announced.

Since the draw for the fourth round was made last week, Sky Sports have confirmed they will broadcast the tie live on TV, with the game now being moved to Sunday, January 8, for a 12.45 p.m. kick-off.

The club is still to finalise with Tayside Police and the local authority how many supporters are able to be accommodated inside Gayfield for the tie, as they are governed by strict capacity rules.

However, the Lichties will be operating a voucher system which will be introduced at tomorrow’s (Saturday) home fixture against Brechin City.

Subject to availability, paying adults and senior citizens at tomorrow’s game will be issued with one voucher that will allow them to exchange the voucher to purchase one ticket for the Arbroath end of the ground during the tie with the Ibrox men.

However, as there are only a limited number of vouchers available this way. They will be issued on a first come, first served basis so the club advises supporters to get to the ground as early as possible tomorrow.

All season tickets will be valid for the cup tie and in addition all adult or senior citizen holders will also be issued with a voucher, which will allow them to buy a second ticket if required.

Shareholders in the club who are not season ticket holders can also purchase a ticket for the Rangers game but must contact the office at Gayfield or e-mail the club direct.

Further details on when vouchers can be exchanged will be released soon and will be advertised on the club’s website and in the Arbroath Herald as soon as more information becomes available.

Half price season tickets are still on sale from the office at Gayfield on weekday mornings and on match days.
