Rangers intends to build a memorial garden for the interment of Rangers FC supporters. It has submitted plans to Glasgow City Council to build a memorial wall in an unused car park. The club also wants to have an Ibrox Disaster memorial within the garden.
A total of 66 lives were lost and more than 200 people were injured during the 1971 Ibrox disaster which was a crush among the crowd at an Old Firm game.
Marathon and half-Marathon events are popping up all over. One stadium putting itself forward is St Mary’s Stadium, home of Southampton FC, which is a regular host of the local Marathon event. Runners enter the stadium and run alongside the pitch as part of the course.
Toby Steele, Managing Director of Southampton FC, said:
We are delighted to be able to welcome Southampton’s biggest running event through the gates at St Mary’s again. As one of the runners this year, I am really looking forward to taking part in what is always a great sporting event that helps to raise money for so many worthwhile causes in the local community.
