More seats for Scotland v Kazakhstan at Hampden Park

Thursday, 14 November 2019

ScotRail is adding more seats to services for Scotland’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Kazakhstan at Hampden Park on Tuesday, 19 November 2019.

The train operator is adding additional carriages to trains on routes to and from Glasgow Central including East Kilbride, Gourock and Paisley Canal.

There will also be more seats on trains between Glasgow Central and Mount Florida, the closest station to Hampden Park.

Customers are advised that services will be busier than normal, and that queuing systems may be in place at Glasgow Central before the game, and at Mount Florida station afterwards.

To help fans arrive at the stadium on time for the 7.45pm kick-off, they should allow extra time for travel – as well as purchasing tickets in advance to avoid additional queuing on the day.

After the final whistle, supporters are encouraged to head back to Mount Florida as fast as possible and join the queues on Bolton Drive.

Customers are asked to take this queuing system into account when planning journeys home from the match.

ScotRail will have extra staff on the ground to assist customers.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail Head of Customer Operations, said:

“We’ll be adding more seats to help fans get to the game, but customers should plan their journeys in advance, and make sure they buy their tickets to Mount Florida before they board.

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