Emergency talks over Stranraer FC capacity row

Emergency talks are being held today, July 30, over Stranraer Football Club's stadium capacity row.

The club was hoping to sell 6,000 tickets for their home game against Rangers next month.

But Dumfries and Galloway Council dealt a blow when they said fewer than 3,000 would be available because of health and safety concerns.

The club is meeting with Scottish football's governing body to ask for their capacity at Stair Park to be doubled.

The Blues are hoping the organisation will allow for 6,000 tickets to be issued with a safety certificate for the main stand only.

The club are also meeting with the police to discuss crowd control.

Selling 6,000 tickets will generate nearly £100,000 for the club.
