NEW SLEEP OUT DATE ADDED!

Wed 19th September 2018

We’ve added a FOURTH Big Ibrox Sleep Out date to our calendar for Saturday 8 December in response to the amazing reaction from supporters to the events.

Around 270 fans – including ex-player and Rangers Academy Coach Gregory Vignal - have signed up to sleep out under the stars at Ibrox and support homeless and vulnerable people in our city.  Thanks to this new date even more supporters can now get involved and help make a difference to some very important causes.

If you can handle spending a cold winter’s night at Ibrox Stadium with just a sleeping bag for warmth, then sign up now!

We aim to highlight the issue of homelessness as well as raise vital funds.   Our fans have raised an incredible £145,000 for homeless projects over the last three years, and we can take this total even higher by sleeping out in our iconic Stadium this winter!.

For the third year running, Rangers kit sponsor 32Red has pledged its generous support to the Foundation and to every fan taking part in the Sleep Outs.

32Red will once again kick-start every participant’s fundraising by donating their first £10 of sponsorship and will sponsor the fantastic hot breakfast provided for everyone in the morning after the event.

The Sleep Outs will once again support Glasgow City Mission’s Winter Night Shelter, a cause close to the hearts of our fans who have been incredible in their support for this charity.

Once again, the Winter Night Shelter will have to close in the month of March next year, when it is still very cold, unless we can raise enough to keep this vital service going.

Half of the funds raised from this year’s Sleep Outs will go towards the March costs for the Winter Night Shelter.  The remaining funds will support the Foundation’s life-changing work in the community, including our Christmas initiatives with vulnerable young and old people in the local area, the expansion of our amazing Dream Fund experiences and assistance for important causes such as the Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity.

Sleep Out participants will spend the night at Ibrox either on the technical area pitch-side or in the stand (under cover) if the weather is wet and will get a small glimpse of the nightly conditions experienced by people in our city who are street homeless.

Fans taking part in the Sleep Out will be asked to bring along warm clothing and a sleeping bag and the Foundation will provide a ground covering, hot soup and beverages and a hot breakfast in the morning. 

Every participant is asked to raise a minimum of £100 to take part in the Big Sleep Out and by doing so will also become a True Blue Hero and be invited to a special reception to receive a True Blue Hero medal from a Rangers first team player next year. 

Help us be a force for good in our city and sign up below to take part, or call the Foundation on 0141 580 8775 or e-mail rangerscharity@rangers.co.uk for further information. A registration fee of £20 per person is applicable.
