ScotRail has announced that more seats on trains will be available for football fans heading to the World Cup Qualifier between Scotland and Israel this weekend.
The football match takes place from 5 pm on Saturday 9th October and to keep passengers moving, more trains will operate to and from Mount Florida, which is the closest station to Hampden Park.
The operator says that queuing systems may be in place at Glasgow Central before the match, and at Mount Florida after the match.
ScotRail has also reminded people that if people are planning on staying overnight in Glasgow that industrial action means a limited service will operate on the Sunday.
Phil Campbell, ScotRail Head of Customer Operations, said: “We wish the Scotland national team the best of luck in their crucial World Cup Qualifier against Israel on Saturday.
“To help fans get to the game, we’ll be adding more seats to trains to Mount Florida and on key routes to and from the city centre. Customers should, however, plan their journeys in advance and make sure they buy their tickets before they board.
“We’re asking fans to head back to the station as soon as you can after the final whistle, and not to leave it to the last train of the night to get home.”
