ScotRail is encouraging customers to plan their journey in advance ahead of the upcoming Scotland match at Hampden Park.

Scotland host Georgia in their Euro 2024 qualifier at Hampden Park on Tuesday, 20 June, at 7.45pm.

Customers travelling from Glasgow Central to Hampden Park for the match will benefit from some additional services and extra carriages to and from Mount Florida – the closest station to the ground. 

Supporters heading to the game are advised to allow additional time for travel as services will still be busy. 

Regular customers should be aware that trains from Glasgow Central to Mount Florida will be much busier than normal prior to the game.

To help everyone’s journey go smoothly, ScotRail will have extra staff on hand to help at Glasgow Central and Mount Florida.

Queuing systems will be in place at Glasgow Central before the games, and at Mount Florida station after the final whistle.

ScotRail is encouraging fans to purchase their return tickets to Mount Florida in advance, via the mTicket system on the ScotRail app, as it will reduce their need to queue on the day.

Buying tickets through the mTicket system means fans can buy their tickets from the comfort of their home or on the way to the station and it will instantly become available on their mobile device.

ScotRail is asking supporters to head back to Mount Florida as quickly as possible after the final whistle and join the queues on Bolton Drive.

Customers will not be able to access the station from Battlefield Road.

The train operator is also reminding everyone that the carrying and consumption of alcohol is prohibited on ScotRail trains and in ScotRail stations.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail Head of Customer Operations, said:

“We’re looking forward to helping football fans travel by train to cheer on their team when the Scotland men’s national team host Georgia at Hampden on Tuesday night.

“To help the event run smoothly, we’re adding extra carriages to key trains as well as more trains to and from the national stadium.

“Our advice to supporters is to leave extra time for travel as trains are likely to be busier than normal.

“Buying tickets in advance through our mTickets system will reduce your queuing time.

“Regular commuters who travel home from Glasgow on the line via Mount Florida should be aware that services will be much busier than normal with fans heading to the match.”
