RANGERS has today been honoured with the Autism Friendly Award after it improved accessibility for autistic supporters at Ibrox Stadium.
Earlier this year the Club, in partnership with the fans, launched Broxi’s Den, a facility that allows supporters with complex learning difficulties and sensory challenges such as autism to enjoy matches at the Stadium.
This private suite based in the Broomloan Stand Corner, is made up of different zones, including a sensory suite and viewing gallery and will help children and young adults with sensory difficulties acclimatise to the noise, crowds and bustle of a busy matchday.
The Club has also provided autism awareness sessions for staff, will be creating quiet zones throughout the stadium and have produced guides to help fans prepare for their visit. Children aged between 5 and 12 receive priority for afternoon games and young adults will have priority for evening matches.
Rangers striker Kenny Miller received the award from Jo Hamilton, Head of Campaigns at The National Autistic Society Scotland, in Broxi’s Den at Ibrox today.
