THE Smoking, Health and Social Care (Scotland) Act 2005 and the Prohibition of Smoking in Certain Premises (Scotland) Regulations 2006 state that no smoking is allowed in premises that are wholly or substantially enclosed.

As a result, the entire confines of Ibrox Stadium were deemed smoke-free since March 26, 2006.

This policy guarantees that all supporters, visitors and employees have the right to work and enjoy conditions free of tobacco smoke. Full details of this policy will be made available in the employee handbook and within Club correspondence. This will be reiterated via signage within the Stadium to inform supporters, visitors and employees of the smoke free status of the building.
