Parking Restrictions:

Supporters attending Hampden 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.

Where possible, fans should use public transport to get to and from the stadium, if not travelling by organised coach/bus. Parking wardens will be in operation on the day of the game, and you could risk getting a ticket.

It is strongly advised that Hearts supporters travelling by train should alight at King's Park station. Rangers' supporters are being encouraged to use Mount Florida station. Additional ScotRail carriages and services will run both pre and post match. Please remember that alcohol is not permitted onboard ScotRail trains. 

By Supporters Coach:

Supporters’ buses should take the following routes to Hampden:

M8/M73 to M74 Jct 1A (Polmadie) – onto Polmadie Road towards Stadium and follow directions from Police motorcyclists to allocated supporters bus parking areas in the east of stadium area.

M8 Eastbound: Continue on the M8 to junction 1 of the M74, (offside lane). Exit the M74 at Junction 1A (Polmadie) and follow the route above.
 
M8 Westbound: Exit the M8 at junction 20 (nearside lane), merge onto West Street, turn left into Wallace Street, keep left to continue on Dalintober Street, merge onto M74, exit the M74 at junction 1A (Polmadie) and follow the route above.
