Football fans will benefit from more seats on trains this weekend as European Champions Liverpool take on Italian giants Napoli in a glamour friendly.
The pre-season fixture kicks off at 5pm on Sunday 28 July at the BT Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh. ScotRail has confirmed it will add more seats on key routes to and from the capital city to help the day run smoothly.
However, trains to and from Edinburgh are expected to be busy. Fans heading to the game are advised to allow extra time for travel, as queuing systems may be in place before the match and at Haymarket after the final whistle.
ScotRail will have extra staff on hand to help customers, and a map showing which queue to join at Haymarket is available at scotrail.co.uk/sport As with most large events, alcohol bans will be in force.
ScotRail Head of Customer Operations Phil Campbell said: “Friendly or not, this is set to be great match and we’re looking forward to playing our part. “We’ll be using every available train to make the day run smoothly, with more seats on key services in and out of Edinburgh.
“If you’re going to match, please plan ahead and allow more time for travel as trains will be busy. Buying your tickets in advance will reduce your need to queue.”
