Kilmarnock have announced that they have suffered no loss of income from the decision taken to cut the away allocation for travelling Celtic and Rangers fans.
In a report produced by Managing Director Phyllis McLeish, the Premiership side that they are ‘proud of the outcome’ after Old Firm fans received just one stand at Rugby Park for away fixtures.
The MD report reads: “The decision taken to prioritise our own family support by cutting a second away stand for Old Firm games has been successful and we are very proud of the outcome.”
“We have since witnessed an improved atmosphere for players, fans and townspeople in relation to these games. Meanwhile, the potential loss of income has not materialised, with an increasing number of families coming back each week.”
“The family fan zone behind the stand is also becoming increasingly popular and we have plans for this to evolve further in coming months.”
“With the assistance of our Director Billy Bowie and the Killie Trust, we installed two safe standing areas for young supporters; one in the East Stand and one in the Moffat. A disabled ramp in the Moffat Stand has also been introduced to enhance our disabled supporters’ matchday experience.”
