ScotRail issues travel warning for football fans ahead of cup final



ScotRail has issued travel advice for football fans heading to Hampden Park in Glasgow for the Scottish Cup final.

Celtic will face rivals Rangers at the national stadium with a 3pm kick-off on Saturday, with the operator adding extra seats and additional trains.

Queuing systems are to be put in place at Glasgow Central prior to the match, and at Mount Florida and Kings Park following the conclusion of the game.

ScotRail said Celtic fans will queue for services to Kings Park via the main concourse at Central, while Rangers supporters will queue for services to Mount Florida via the carriage driveway on Hope Street.

After the match, Celtic fans will then travel via Kings Park, while Rangers supporters will use the Mount Florida station.

Passengers are advised to buy tickets in advance and allow for additional travel time.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail customer operations director, said: “ScotRail is looking forward to helping fans travel to Hampden to cheer on their side in the men’s Scottish Cup final.

“We’ll be doing all we can to help you travel to the match as hassle-free as possible, which includes more seats and services to and from Mount Florida and Kings Park.

“Queuing systems will be in place before and after the matches, so please make sure you know where to go, and our staff will also be on hand to direct you.

“Buying your return tickets in advance through our mTicket system on the ScotRail app will reduce your need to queue, and help your journey run smoothly.”
