This offering of ordinary shares with voting rights represents a unique opportunity to invest directly into an iconic football club with a prestigious 150-year history, access to European football and a global following estimated to exceed 3 million supporters.
Under a group of committed supporter-owners since the start of 2015, the Club has delivered very strong results both on and off the pitch and a platform has been created for future growth. The owners have invested significantly into the Club’s foundations in order to put Rangers in a position not only to challenge for the top domestic prizes but to become a leading club on the European stage. A transformational approach has been applied to all aspects of the Club’s business and operations, with the intention of delivering significant growth and making the Club financially sustainable to future-proof the next 150 years.
Under highly-rated manager Steven Gerrard, Rangers won the 2020/21 league title – the Club's 55th in it history – without losing a single game. Off the pitch, 2019/20 revenue was 2.7x that of 2015/16, driven by matchday income underpinned by the third-highest season ticket base in the UK, a step-change in commercial revenues and the return of European football.
The Rangers football department has been restructured and modernised under Sporting Director Ross Wilson, with an increased focus on data analysis, scouting and recruitment and investment into the creation of an elite working environment for playing squads at all levels.
By reaching the UEFA Europa League last-16 in the past two seasons Rangers has improved Scotland’s UEFA co-efficient and the potential for future European revenue. Regular participation in top-level European competition would also bring global brand exposure and help to accelerate the players’ development and international profile. The Club’s also has plans to create one of the best Academies in Europe and to produce players who can excel for the first team or become valuable squad assets with the potential to generate profits in the transfer market.
Rangers is a modern, pioneering football club. The Club has clear ambitions focussed on domestic trophies and extended European campaigns; however, it also has a clear focus on financial sustainability. Funds raised by the equity offering will be invested into projects designed to support the Club’s success both on and off the field, strengthen its financial sustainability, and build its long-term value.
The Board is delighted to extend an invitation for new shareholders to play their part in realising the Club’s potential.
