Football fans travelling to Hampden Park to see Scotland clash with Cyprus and Spain can expect to benefit from major changes made by ScotRail.

As Scotland kick starts its 2024 Euro qualifier campaign on Saturday, March 25, services will be greatly expanded to accommodate supporters.

To help with the influx of visitors to Glasgow for the upcoming games, ScotRail will be adding more seats and services to and from Mount Florida.

However, as train services are expected to be busier, the train operator is urging fans to plan ahead and be patient with the staff.

It has also been advised that regular commuters who use the Neilston services should be aware that trains will be much busier than usual.

To help make things run smoothly, ScotRail has also earmarked more staff to help customers reach Hampden for the Euro qualifiers.

Queuing systems to be in place at Glasgow Central during Euro matchdays

Customers have also been advised that there will also be a queuing system in place at Glasgow Central before the games and at Mount Florida after the final whistle.

To reduce the need for queues, customers have been urged to buy return tickets in advance.

Scotland fans are also reminded that ScotRail trains prohibit the consumption of alcohol in stations and on trains.

“We’re adding more seats to trains between Glasgow Central and Mount Florida to help fans get to and from the matches against Cyprus and Spain at Hampden Park.
