COWDENBEATH fans will be housed in the new stand at Central Park for the William Hill Scottish Cup-tie with Rangers to be played on Friday night January 18.

The tie will be beamed live by satellite broadcasters, Premier Sports, with a 7.45pm start and the club has met with Rangers officials and there has been agreements that match will be all-ticket and segregated.

There will be space for 4,200 plus fans and the arrangements are for Cowdenbeath supporters to be housed in the new stand, which holds around 650, with Rangers having the use of old stand and the terracing.

The ticket prices are for the stands, £20 for adults and £10, for concessions and £18 for adults for the terracing with £9 concessions.

Club director David Allan has been involved in the discussions with Rangers and he confirmed that the home ticket allocation will have a set format.

He said: "It should be noted that when tickets for home supporters go on sale those available for purchase by Cowdenbeath fans will initially be sold on a priority basis.

"The categories of purchasers with priority will be Club shareholders, season ticket and half-season ticket holders, 100 Club members and subscribers to the Blue Brazil Bonus Ball Lottery. "Thus if someone falls into all four of these categories they can purchase up to four tickets. If someone qualifies in just one of these categories one ticket can be purchased, and obviously two if in two categories and three if in three.

"If there are tickets left over after the sale to those in these categories, these would go on public sale."

The game will have extra stewarding and police involvement and it will see Cowden house their biggest crowd since their time in the Championship when Rangers last played at Central Park in 2015.

That day the teams drew 0-0 in front of a crowd of around 3,244 and it was the last time Cowdenbeath had a gate of that size.

With the match being televised live it will see Cowdenbeath make something like £60,000 from the tie which will be a very handy boost to the club's income for the season.

It is something Blue Brazil has missed out on in recent seasons by failing to get past round two of the competition losing to East Kilbride, from the Lowland League, in successive seasons, but this term the team's form has been much better and they swept Clyde and Brora Rangers out of the competition to earn the tie with Glasgow Rangers.
