Ross County Raise The Roof For Title Celebrations


With Ross County’s final home game of the season fast approaching a sell-out, the Club have confirmed that the celebrations this Saturday (the 28th of April) will extend well beyond the confines of Victoria Park.

Whilst the atmosphere inside the stadium for the match against Hamilton Academical is sure to be electric from the time that the gates open at 13:45 right through until the presentation of the Irn Bru SFL First Division Trophy on the pitch after the match, the whole town of Dingwall is being given a chance to join in the celebrations.

League Sponsor’s Irn Bru have confirmed that their open top Irn Bru bus will be making the journey North to join in the celebrations, and in addition to being outside Victoria Park ahead of the game itself it will also be taking the team on a parade down the High Street to celebrate not only the fact that the team have won the title but also that they have brought the SPL to Dingwall.

The bus, lead by the Sutherland Schools Pipe Band, will travel down the High Street at approximately 18:00 heading the full length from the junction with Burn Place where the pedestrian zone starts right back to the Railway Bridge which leads back to Victoria Park meaning that everyone will be sure to find a great vantage point from which to cheer the team.

It is sure to prove a fitting end to what promises to be a phenomenal day not only for the players and fans of Ross County but also for the whole town of Dingwall. Before the match there will be parade of past players led by a pipe band around the pitch at Victoria Park as well as face painting for young and old alike at the Jailend. After the trophy presentation is completed the band Torridon, who released the single “We’re On Our Way” to mark the Club’s achievement in reaching the 2010 Scottish Cup Final, will perform a brief live set at the stadium prior to the parade on the High Street commencing.
