When you have Rangers fans crawling over each other to buy tickets for a friendly in Edinburgh you know the EPL is a threat to our fan base in the long term. I didn't believe that to be the case before reading this thread.

Tickets purchased this morning, never been to Murrayfield before and its a great opportunity to tick it off (i had tickets for the Hearts v Rangers but had a wedding that day). Will be ground no. 106 for me.

I doubt it. It's not like we're skipping a Rangers game to attend this instead (I know we may still arrange a friendly for that day but far from an important game). If we had a competitive game that day of course I'd be going to that.

I think most just see it as an opportunity to see two top quality sides fairly locally.

nothing wrong going to seeing english teams i prefer going to epl games than scottish games at least teams dont sit back with 10 men behind the ball if thats football to you then fair play its not for me

only top tier now available , im sure the liverpool section will be all sold now , wonder if they will release the napoli end dont think they will sell that out

Think your missing the point mate. A large proportion of us on the board are not just Rangers fans, but football fans in general, myself included. I'm intending to be there with my Liverpool supporting mate

Who wouldn't want to see the European champions in your back yard pretty much and maybe meet our gaffer in the stand? :)) Also have a soft spot for Napoli too, so its a win win but they will never be Rangers.

An opportunity to see two top sides a short journey up the road, were hardly going to stop supporting Rangers for Liverpool or Napoli, as it stands Rangers have nothing scheduled for that weekend anyway.

Teams with 10 men behind the ball happens in the EPL most weeks as well. Just watch any Liverpool or Man City game.

Anyway that's off topic. I'm just amazed so many Rangers fans can be arsed watching not only a friendly but a friendly not involving Rangers. A competitive game I could understand but not this.

i only watch liverpool & chelsea and ive not notice it , theres more to life than Rangers you dont need to watch every game they play or go to them, you got to experience other countrys football , ive been down to england for friendlys

I've been down to England for friendlies as well. Rangers ones, haha. I love football but Liverpool v Napoli in Edinburgh just seems ridiculous to me. I guess the global pull of the EPL is huge.

You obviously sleep through the EPL games that you go to if you don't think teams sit in behind the ball.
The entertainment value is pure pish for about 80% of EPL games.

Knowing our luck Kent will still be at Liverpool by the time this game comes around, play a blinder at Murrayfield and then Napoli will buy him for £20m.

Be a sellout Edinburgh is in the height of tourist season and Liverpool have just won the Champions league.

I go to some random games across Europe and more so England. Rangers always comes first obviously, but the quality in the English game is a million miles away. I was at the Newcastle Southampton game a couple of months back and it was great. I have a season ticket at Ibrox, but there is nothing wrong with going to other games if you get the chance.

Bought a ticket for this game because I missed Murrayfield when Rangers played there. Tick another one off the list.

Can’t really say I like. Just doesn’t sit right for me that Scotland hosts a friendly game between an English and an Italian team. They have nothing to do with us so why do it?
I get some fans up here may “like” English, or maybe even Italian clubs, in which case go travel to see them.
I bet both teams are earning a fortune out of this....as will the SRU! There will be no benefit to Scottish football at all.
Aside from pre-season tournaments I’m not aware of us, for example, playing foreign opposition in England.
What we should be doing is trying to get us v some top euro team at twickenham....anyone think the English FA / premiership would be ok with that??

there is not a big draw for us or them to play at wembley , english teams prefer to play italian , german,spanish,french teams, twickenham wont be used for football , im sure there would accept it but its never going to happen

epl teams are a big draw up here its been proven it is with over 40k tickets sold in 2 days , i hope this is start of more big teams playing here for pre season friendlys
