Upcoming sports events

Tuesday, 21 November 2017

Sports fans have a lot to look forward to year-round in Scotland.

Here we'll pick out some of the very top events currently on the horizon, with tips on reaching them by train.

Our top tips for travelling to events:

  1. Buy your ticket before you board. You’ll need a valid ticket for travel, and checks will be in place at many stations.
  2. Check your train times. Remember to leave time to catch any connecting services that you need.
  3. Listen up! We’ll have extra staff on the ground to help things go smoothly. To help them help you, please listen to their instructions.
  4. Download the ScotRail app. You can use it to buy tickets, check train times, and see live service information.
  5. Don’t leave it too late – services will be busy, and you might not be able to board your first choice of train.

Nearest station: Haymarket

To help keep you moving, we’ll be adding carriages to our busiest services – both before and after the game.

Queueing systems will be in place before the game at Glasgow Queen Street, and at Haymarket following the final whistle.

Trains to and from Edinburgh will be very busy, particularly after full time. We expect the last trains of the night to be extremely popular, so please plan to catch an earlier service.

As with most large events, alcohol bans will be in force - click here to find out more on these.

Important information about queueing at Haymarket station

Due to ongoing water works on the approach to Haymarket station, the queueing system in place will be different to the one used in previous years. Extra staff will be on hand as you approach the station to direct you to the right queue.

If you are travelling to stations on the Borders railway, the North Berwick line, or the East Coast Mainline (including Dunbar), you may find it easier to avoid the queues and go straight to Waverley station.

Where to queue

Trains to Glasgow Queen Street (via Falkirk High), Stirling or Dunblane

  • Please keep right as you approach the station, and look out for signs directing you towards the queues under the station, behind Rosebery House.

Trains to all other destinations

  • Please keep left as you approach the station. Look out for signs, which will direct you to the correct queue at the front of the station, next to the bike racks.

Travelling from Glasgow Queen Street?

The Travel Shop has now moved to the site of the former Vale pub on Dundas Street.

Bringing a bag?

Scottish Rugby will have a ‘small bags only’ policy in place for this match, and asks that all supporters bring bags no larger than an A5 sheet of paper into the stadium. You can bring larger bags as normal on the train, however, please be aware that there are no left luggage facilities at Haymarket station.

Nearest stations:

Dalmarnock: for Glasgow Central, Westbound Motherwell and Lanark

To help everyone get where they want to be, we’ll have two queues in place at Dalmarnock station after the game.

If you’re heading in to the city centre, please join the queue on Swanston Street. If you’re going towards Motherwell or Lanark, you’ll need to use the queue at the front of the station.
