Manchester Grant Giant Screens For UEFA Cup Final

Manchester Grant Giant Screens For UEFA Cup Final

Manchester City Council have buckled under pressure from ticket-less Glasgow Rangers fans and agreed to install giant screens in Albert Square and Piccadilly Gardens for the UEFA Cup Final.

The game against Zenit St Petersburg takes place on May 14, and more than 100,000 Rangers fans are expected to converge on the city.

Talking about the giant screen installation, Councillor Pat Karney spoke on behalf of Manchester City Council...

'In the light of Rangers qualifying for the final and the massive reported demand from fans for bigger and better provision, we've arranged for big outdoor screens for fans to watch the match.'

'Manchester is looking forward to welcoming fans from Rangers FC and from FC Zenit St Petersburg for a day to remember on 14 May.'

'Our city is well used to friendly invasions of many thousands of visitors for major events like the UEFA Cup final.'

'I'm confident that Manchester will give a very warm welcome to fans from Rangers and from Zenit and that all fans will have a fabulous day.'


The council said that fan zones with entertainment and access to food and drink throughout the day would be available for both sets of supporters.

Wonder why they dont do in Rangers own ground, save the travelling for those fans without a ticket, like they did at Maine road against wigan.

the game IS being beamed back to Ibrox guys ,, the gates will be open and fans will get the chance to see the game free of charge ,, what you must understand here is that ( like Celtic ) there is not a town in Scotland that doesn,t have a substantial Rangers support and thats before you consider their wider support outside Scotland ,, the truth of the matter is that they could sell out this game 10 times over ,, just hope they behave ,, just heard you guys are to be included in next years competition via England topping the fair play awards ,, well done on both counts ,, good luck !!!
