Betfred Cup

Betfred Cup final travel advice

Important travel information and routes for supporters attending Sunday's Betfred Cup final between Celtic and Aberdeen at Hampden, kick-off 3.00pm...

INTRODUCTION
Hampden Park Limited in conjunction with partners; Scotrail, First Group, Citylink, Glasgow City Council, Strathclyde Passenger Transport, Police Scotland, British Transport Police and G4S have prepared the following travel advice for supporters attending the forthcoming match at the National Stadium.

A newly formed, Hampden Stadium Transport Group has been working together to devise what we hope will be a cohesive transport plan designed to increase the efficiency of the spectator journey and experience to and from Hampden Stadium.

PARKING RESTRICTIONS
Persons attending events at Hampden Park should be aware that the area immediately surrounding the stadium is mainly residential and the availability of on-street parking is extremely limited due to event specific parking restrictions.

On event days we would advise persons attending Hampden Park where possible to use public transport to get to and from the stadium, if not travelling by organised coach/bus.
