Rangers fans to fill half of Sevilla stadium for Europa League final

Rangers will have approximately 18,000 supporters in the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan for the Europa League final on Wednesday (18 May).

According to The Herald, Light Blues fans have swarmed to purchase tickets from the official ballot where UEFA and sponsorship tickets were sold to the general public.

The club’s initial allocation of 9,500 was sold out in rapid time and that left a number of supporters without a match ticket but some have managed to pick themselves up a ticket in the general sale.

The Glaswegians in Seville without a ticket to the match can still watch the game at the same stadium Celtic lost the 2003 UEFA Cup final on a big screen but those staying in Scotland will have to head to the pubs or stay at home to watch the match.

Eintracht Frankfurt are the opposition having beaten West Ham in the semi-finals but they look set to be heavily outnumbered by Rangers in the stand at the very least.

You would expect nothing less from our club after what we’ve seen for decades upon decades now, we just have the best fans in Europe and there’s little debating that fact.

It’s going to be a sea of blue at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Wednesday evening and every single one of them in the ground will be hoping that they’re covered in blue confetti too once the final whistle goes.

It’s a massive travelling contingent we’re taking to the sunny Spanish shores and as long as they all behave within reason, the atmosphere in the city is going to be incredible.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst and his side will feel the passion from each and every one of you and with so many Light Blues fans in the ground, they could be able to roar the players onto victory in what will be a very tight contest on one of Europe’s biggest stages.
