ScotRail has confirmed additional trains and more seats for fans travelling to Hampden Park for the men’s international friendly between Scotland and Finland on Friday (7 June) at 19.45. 

The national team will play their final match before the European Championships get underway, with the train operator adding more services and seats to and from Mount Florida, the closest station to Hampden. 

Customers heading to the game are advised to allow additional time for travel as queuing systems will be in place at Glasgow Central before the football, and at Mount Florida after the final whistle. 

Fans are also reminded that Mount Florida station can only be accessed from Bolton Drive after the match, which is the main road leading to the station from the stadium.  

To reduce the need to queue, all customers are encouraged to buy their return tickets in advance via the mTicket system on the ScotRail app.

ScotRail will have extra staff on hand to assist customers, and the train operator is reminding everyone that the carrying and consumption of alcohol is prohibited on ScotRail trains and in ScotRail stations.
