Cumbernauld glass and aluminium specialist nets Ibrox Stadium lounge contract

CUMBERNAULD-based glass and aluminium specialist Cube Glass has landed a contract to provide ‘stunning’ glass feature attractions in the new Blue Sky Lounge at Ibrox Stadium, home of Rangers Football Club.

The lounge will boast panoramic views of the pitch and has capacity to serve more than 330 guests on match days.

Cube Glass, working in partnership with construction and fit-out specialist Morris & Spottiswood, is installing a full-length screen at the rear of the Sandy Jardine Stand with access doors to the new lounge for patrons.

In a project worth £120,000, the manufacturer revealed it will use Metal Technology System 10-35 Hi to create a ‘light, airy environment’ in which guests can enjoy pre-and post-match hospitality. The project is scheduled to be completed by October.

Gary Thorn, Cube Glass founder and MD, said, “It is an honour to have been asked to participate in this new Rangers initiative, which will show the way to other stadia in terms of what can be done to create a unique experience for fans and guests. Our involvement in the Blue Sky Lounge follows the completion of the Cube Glass Sponsors’ Lounge just before the start of last season, a small, bespoke venue above the Main Stand which hosts 24 club sponsors.

“And, in 2019, we were called on to install three fire-rated screens and new double doors at the £14 million The Rangers Training Centre at Auchenhowie in the north of Glasgow. We are very pleased to have been able to further develop this close relationship with the club.”

James Bisgrove, Rangers’ commercial and marketing director, said, “The Blue Sky Lounge is another flagship development at Ibrox as part of our 150th-anniversary celebrations. Alongside New Edmiston House and the new Club Museum, the board is committed to continually modernising and enhancing the Ibrox match day experience.”
