SCOTRAIL is adding extra seats to as many services as it can as Glasgow prepares itself for two major sporting events this weekend.

The bumper weekend gets underway on Saturday (May 25) with the Scottish Cup Final as Hearts take on holders Celtic at 3pm at Hampden, before Leinster face Glasgow Warriors in the final of the Pro14 rugby at 6.30pm at Celtic Park.

Runners and spectators are also expected to flock to the capital for the Edinburgh Marathon early on Sunday morning.

ScotRail is advising supporters to leave extra time for travel as trains will be busy.

Queuing systems will be in place at Glasgow Central before the football and at Mount Florida and Kings Park after the final whistle, as well as at Bellgrove and Dalmarnock after the rugby.

The train provider is also asking runners and spectators to consider their travel options on Sunday.

ScotRail will have extra staff on hand to help customers and, as with most major events, alcohol bans will be in place.

ScotRail’s head of customer operations, Phil Campbell, said: “It’s the last big weekend of sport for a while, and it’s going to be a busy few days.

“To help the events run smoothly, we’ll be adding extra seats to as many trains as possible. And, although we can’t make every train longer, we will be using every train we can.

“I encourage anyone travelling this weekend to allow extra time for travel, and to minimise the need to queue, buy your tickets in advance on the ScotRail app or website.”
