Ibrox View: RB Leipzig allocation embarrassing ahead of huge Rangers showdown in Europa League
Rangers fans are set to be disappointed if they wanted a seat in Germany for one of the huge Europa League semi-final legs against RB Leipzig.
David Edgar has shared that the Bears will only get 2100 tickets in Germany, described as a “Small allocation.”
RB Leipzig only have to give 5% of their total capacity, and with reduced allocation in the stadium, it has harmed Rangers.
Writing on the official Heart & Hand Twitter account, Edgar shared the news which we still can’t believe.
“Looking like a small allocation for Leipzig,” he wrote.
This comes after the Rangers SLO shared: “We expect to receive a small allocation of 2100 tickets for the away fixture in Germany. Ticket allocation process will be communicated soon.”
This is embarrassing from RB Leipzig.
On what is a huge occasion for Rangers, fans are going to travel in their thousands over to Germany, yet the majority of them won’t get into the ground.
It was the same at Borussia Dortmund, and more clubs have to follow Braga’s lead by opening up more of the ground for the travelling faithful.
No one will follow their teams more in Europe than the mighty Bears, and this allocation looks like a punishment more than anything.
Are these German sides afraid? With all their money you would think that they believe they will breeze past us, yet look what happened to Dortmund.
We hope this backfires and those 2000 fans get to witness yet another amazing night on the road in Europe.
Our backs will be against the wall, but that is when we come out swinging – bring it on.
