Overview

The Old Firm is a dizzying combination of football, politics, and religion.

All compressed into one city where the levels of fan obsession and media attention reach fever pitch.

Despite everything, football is still the main driver of this rivalry.

Because for all their differences, Celtic and Rangers have one thing in common – an endless obsession with being the best.

Your weekend in Glasgow will be led by a lifelong Rangers fan who loves sharing his city’s football culture with visitors.

You’ll experience the Old Firm through local eyes. By building up to the match in authentic Rangers pubs near the stadium and getting the inside track on this deep-rooted rivalry.

All before taking your place at the magnificent Ibrox Stadium for an afternoon you’ll never forget.

Glasgow is full of surprises – but the Old Firm lives up to its reputation every single time.

Day 1 - Welcome to Glasgow and Match Day

The weekend you've been waiting for is here!

All morning, people will arrive from across the world to attend the mighty Old Firm. Once you've left your luggage, it's match day.

Old Firm games usually kick off at around 12:30. Best time to meet your local host is around 10:30 in the hotel.

Once everyone is together, you'll catch the Subway to a typical pub where Rangers fans drink and sing before the match. There's no better way to see this rivalry from this inside and hear local fans' stories about their love for Rangers.

As for the game itself, it'll be a blur of noise and action. Celtic have had the upper hand for almost a decade now. But Rangers are getting closer - which adds even more urgency to Old Firm matches. It won't disappoint!

After the match everything is possible. Like having dinner with the group at one of Glasgow's great restaurants. Or if you're feeling adventurous - make the most of your Saturday night with a few drinks.

Day 2 - Recovery
Day 2 - Recovery

There’s plenty of time to do more sightseeing. Such as a stadium tour of Hampden Park, a graffiti tour, or even a Whisky Tour through the streets of the old town.

FAQs

Will the stadiums be open in 2021/22? At what capacity?

Homefans believe that stadiums will be open to fans, however we cannot at this stage confirm what the capacity will be.  However our flexible booking policies mean that if the stadium will only accept 50% fans and you decide you only want to travel with 100% attendance you can swap to another venue or another date.

Will I need to prove I am vaccinated? Or show a negative test?

This will vary destination to destination and based on your nationality and age. Therefore Homefans are not able to advise on this.  Please check the foreign ministry of your destination and home country and the stadium requirements.  Again, if you find the requirements too much you can defer to later in the season/year when they relax further.

COVID-19 hasn’t gone away- should I still book?

We believe so, we all need something to look forward to.  But we understand that people may be apprehensive which is why we have created a flexible cancellation policy which means in the event that the event does not happen the amount paid simply becomes Homefans credit. 

 

You can transfer this to a later date (with no time limit), transfer to another tour, or even give it to a friend. This flexibility also applies if you decide to cancel for any reason (as long as you give us 45 days notice)

Do I have to pay the full amount when I book?

No, you can secure your place with a deposit of just 30%, then pay the balance at least 4 weeks before your trip date depending on your destination.

Where in the stadiums will we be sitting?

If we know where you will be sitting we always mention this is in the inclusions section.

 

Unfortunately we are not always able to tell you that at the time of booking, however our destination managers work tirelessly to make sure you get the best seats. We always aim for the long side of the home supporters section.

How many people will be on the tour?

The maximum number of people the host will allow is stated above. However this number may not always be met and it may even be possible that your party is on the tour on your own. Higher numbers make for a more sociable experience, lower numbers make for more personalised attention from your host. Look at it as a win/win!

Can children / young adults join the tour?

If we can accept children there will be an option in the booking flow. However for many trips our local hosts take the decision, based on the content of the tour, to open this up to adults only. If you are looking to travel with under 18’s, please feel free to contact us and we can discuss your options.

Can you cater to dietary needs or requirements?

Our local hosts will do everything they can to cater to travellers’ needs. It’s a good idea to share your requirements at the time of booking so that our host is able to make the required preparations

Will I have to share a room?

In order to keep the costs low we always offer prices based on 2 sharing. If you make a booking for an odd number of people you or another member of your party may be paired with another traveller of the same sex. If you wish you may pay a supplement for a guaranteed single room. Simply make your booking as normal and get in touch with us to arrange this.

Great weekend with Homefans

My first trip with Homefans was the Old FIrm at Ibrox. We had a great time in Glasgow and everything was well arranged by Homefans. It was a great experience. We went to the training facilities of Rangers, did a stadium tour and saw Rangers v Celtic live. Incredible experience Thanks!
