Celtic will face Rangers in the showpiece occasion at Hampden Park on Saturday, 25 May at 15:00.

The train operator has confirmed additional trains and extra seats will be added to services between Glasgow Central and Mount Florida, and between Glasgow Central and Kings Park, before and after the match to help supporters attend the game.

Football fans heading to Hampden should allow additional time for travel as queuing systems will be in place at Glasgow Central before the match, and at Mount Florida and Kings Park after the final whistle.

Celtic fans will queue for services to Kings Park via the main concourse at Glasgow Central, while Rangers supporters will queue for services to Mount Florida via the carriage driveway on Hope Street.

After the match, Celtic fans will then travel via Kings Park, while Rangers supporters will use Mount Florida station.

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

Buying through the app means mTickets can be purchased from the comfort of home or on the way to the station, and it will instantly become available on a mobile device.

Customers are also reminded of engineering works on Saturday, 25 May, between Glasgow Central and Edinburgh via Shotts, where a bus replacement service is in operation.

ScotRail will have extra staff on hand to assist customers, and the train operator is reminding everyone that the carrying and consumption of alcohol is prohibited on ScotRail trains and in ScotRail stations.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail Customer Operations Director, said:

“ScotRail is looking forward to helping fans travel to Hampden to cheer on their side in the men’s Scottish Cup final.

“We’ll be doing all we can to help you travel to the match as hassle-free as possible, which includes more seats and services to and from Mount Florida and Kings Park.

"Queuing systems will be in place before and after the matches, so please make sure you know where to go, and our staff will also be on hand to direct you.

“Buying your return tickets in advance through our mTicket system on the ScotRail app will reduce your need to queue, and help your journey run smoothly.”
