SCOTRAIL has issued an urgent warning ahead of next week's Scotland match.

The game is set to take place at Hampden Park in Glasgow on Tuesday, March 26, at 7.45pm.

It will see Scotland take on Northern Ireland – as the national team continue their Euro 2024 preparations. 

To help fans get to the game, the travel company is adding more services and seats to and from Mount Florida – the closest station to the stadium.

ScotRail has said the extra train services with more carriages will operate before and after the match.

However, the rail operator is also warning fans that services will be busier than normal and is urging travellers to plan ahead.

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.

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

Phil Campbell, ScotRail customer operations director, said: “We’re looking forward to helping fans travel by train to watch the Scotland men’s national team play Northern Ireland at Hampden on Tuesday night.

“We’re adding more services and extra carriages to trains between Glasgow Central and Mount Florida to help supporters travel to and from the match, and we’ll have additional staff on hand to help you.

“Customers heading to Hampden should plan ahead and allow more time for travel, as queuing systems will be in place before and after the match, and trains will be busy.

“Buying your return tickets in advance through our mTicket system on the ScotRail app will reduce your need to queue.”

Fans travelling from Northern Ireland to Scotland by ferry should also check their journey as train services on the Stranraer line are currently being replaced by buses while demolition work continues at the former Ayr Station Hotel, ScotRail has said.
