The State of Ibrox Catering

Ours is get you to the stadium as late as possible and get you out as soon as possible. It's a terrible experience.
Rangers are literally, in effect, waving away tens of thousands of pounds on a regular basis, but not even taking care of the basics which everyone expects in the 21st century. I wouldn't give them a penny for the rubbish currently available. Embarrassing doesn't even come close.

I was at QPR recently and they offer pie, mash and liquor, pizza slices, doughnuts and coffee deals and all the rest - and they seem to manage just fine working from compact kiosks within narrow concourses at Loftus Road.

I am sure that a company like McDonalds ,who are in sports stadiums across the world will have contingency plans for all sorts of places.
The only one I know of in this country was at the Olympic stadium and it closed after the games.
It may be feasible at stadia like modern baseball grounds where people are there for extended timeframes and games are on for the bulk of the year. If McDonald’s or their ilk thought there was money in it they would be coming to us.

I don't have time to read the whole thread but why don't Rangers auction off the catering to the highest bidder. Have Greggs, McDonalds, KFC and Tim Hortons bid for the rights to sell food and soft drinks in the Stadium.
Or give them a stall each in each stabd

Choice.

Let them pay for the privilage

Rangers should also try to ban the catering vans from the immediate area outside

I’d rather buy from rangers than fat Rab’s snack van who could be a tarrier

The OP is bang on, it’s been over priced crap for years. I come from a vintage of mince pie, bovril, spearmint chew and macaroon bar but this is 2019 and the audience is looking for a better all round experience for their £100 a day out charge, not the £5 we spent.

There is also the revenue stream, I know we are a million miles away from something like Tottenham but we should still make more money from our footfall.

on a positive, the only thing I buy is the hot lentil soup and roll from the standalone kiosk in GR, it’s decent and fair price.
You forgot to mention the gammon rolls in the big cardboard boxes.:D

To be fair the wrap of the month is not too bad normally, but waaaayyyy over priced!

the rest is poor, not a great selection and again prices are a joke

on a side not, they do pie of the month, anyone see the season before last where the pie of the month was roasted butternut-squash!! I mean c’mon, how many them they expect to sell! Normal punter strolls up 6 pints in him and thinks aye I’ll have one of those!

It is against terms & conditions in ground relegations to allow controlled containers within the ground

Selling you a bottle of water or soft drink isn't a problem but they can't give you the actual bottle hence why they pour it into to a paper cup
In England they just take the caps off. This is the same with bottled beer and soft drinks

Rules are different in England remember

However in Scotland it is different

The Criminal Law (Consolidation) (Scotland) Act 1995 prevents it

however it has been in place since 1981

Bringing back the guy that used to sell the ham and cheese rolls from a cardboard box would be an improvement, and that's saying something.

Isn’t this something that’s being addressed very soon?

Everyone knows the catering is shïte but we need to be understanding about the time it takes to get all your ducks in a row after the mess we were in. A lukewarm pie unfortunately isn’t high up on the list, but I’m sure it will be seen to soon enough.

You can get water though, I get it every week. They just decant it into a cup.
It’s food at the football, if you’re wanting a meal then go to for a meal. Food is shite at 99% of the stadiums in the Uk.

It isn't shite at Kilmarnock, Dunfermline or London Stadium.
The pies are better, cheaper and more varied at Dumbarton.

What's your opinion on the fans who spend absolute fortunes in hospitality?
Have they just to go for the meal but not the game?

So far this season we've had threads to improve the match day music, the right back, stadium announcer, stewards, ball boys and catering.

I wonder who's next? :confused:

Decent food and refreshments at Ibrox shouldn't even be up for debate in 2019. Its tragic the possible shedload of cash that's being spent elsewhere by Bears on this issue and not going directly to our club.

Football fans have gone beyond wanting stinking pies and a Bovril. That nothing has been done about it for years is ridiculous. It's worse than it was in the 90's.

Well I would assume that if you spend a fortune in hospitality then you are doing it because you want a meal and a bevvy. Why does that mean they can’t enjoy the game? not really sure on your point because the food in hospitality is good.
As i said 99% of stadiums. Killies food is as guff as ours. The killie pie is just as toxic as any pie in scottish football mate - don’t believe the hype :))

No mate, what most people aren't grasping is that Rangers don't control the matchday catering, until they do they won't be able to improve it.
It’s a contract Rangers hold.

They employ a contractor.

They could have done far more to instruct improvements.

Hopefully it’s ripped up at the end of this period.

You tell me why or have you forgot your own post.
You said if people want a meal, then go for a meal.
Our fans on hospitality clearly want a meal and a bevvy, why are they allowed to expect decent fayre for their money but you'll criticise those outside the boxes who want decent food?

I know you said 99% of stadiums, I gave a small sample from my experience.
We've already had plenty of posters list the stadiums in England that provide much better than the facilities at Ibrox do, so clearly your 99% is way out.

And I don't need to 'believe the hype' of a Killie Pie, I have actually tried them.

Totally agree,I enjoy the food from the vans but it's a pity Rangers aren't getting my money.
Do the folk that own the vans pay some sort of fee for selling outside Ibrox?.
Most aren't in the stadium footprint so they probably pay the council.

The one that sits on the stadium footprint will generate revenue for the club, all the others are on the public highway so will only require a traders licence. The club can’t control what happens off the stadium footprint
