Ticket Information

Tickets are now being sent out for this game.

There will be limited facilities at Murrayfield and Celtic are asking all fans to deal directly with the Ticket Office to resolve any ticket issues ahead of the match. There are a number of contingency measures in place and the club are confident that all issues can be resolved relatively quickly. If any of members have any problems please contact us ASAP and we will take it up with the club. 

Supporters Coach Parking

Coach and mini bus parking is available in Russell Road, McLeod Street., Balgreen Road, Gorgie Road and Corstorphine Road. Please note there are low over bridges in Russell Road and Balgreen Road as well as Roseburn Street which double decker coaches will not be able to pass under. Please follow steward’s instructions when parking at these locations as they will be filled in a specific order. Coaches should not be parked in any other streets around the stadium.

Travel Information

While we encourage all fans to use supporters clubs for travel to this game (and all games!) but if you can’t then here is some further information:

Bus Travel – Bus Services will be strengthened to increase passenger capacity to the north and south of the stadium to cater for the additional passengers at the end of the game. Detailed maps showing where to catch buses after the concert will be available on www.lothianbuses.com the week prior to the game.

Tram Travel – Murrayfield Stadium has a dedicated Tram Stop located directly outside the ground, and Edinburgh Trams will be operating an enhanced service before and after the game.  Amongst other starting points Murrayfield Stadium can be accessed via tram from the City Centre, Ingliston Park & Ride, and Edinburgh Airport – see www.edinburghtrams.comfor more information.

Park & Ride– Edinburgh’s Park & Ride sites at Ingliston and Hermiston are both conveniently located for Murrayfield.  From Ingliston a frequent Tram service will be provided to Murrayfield Stadium.  From Hermiston Park & Ride bus service 25 will take you to Gorgie Road (a short walk to Murrayfield).  Details of buses will be available on www.lothianbuses.comthe week prior to the concert.  With frequent bus and tram services both of these Park & Ride sites are great for fans attending with cars.

South Gyle shopping Centre car park is great option for those approaching from the west of the city with a dedicated tram stop adjacent to the car park taking you right to the stadium. Additionally, bus services 12 and 22 from the Gyle Centre bus station will also take you to the stadium.

Travel by foot – Roads will, in the main, remain open to traffic at all times and as such we would ask you to take care when leaving the stadium and keep to the footpaths.

Rail Travel– ScotRail

  • As part of ScotRail’s preparations for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, which start later in the same week, the train operator will be providing extra carriages on many Haymarket routes before and after the football
  • The Edinburgh-Glasgow via Falkirk High line will be quarter-hourly almost all day, and most trains will have the maximum six carriages
  • Remember there are two alternative routes to Haymarket from Glasgow, via Shotts and Airdrie.
  • With 40,000 fans expected at the football, trains and stations will be busy, so it’s worth buying your rail ticket in advance
  • The visible carrying and drinking of alcohol is banned on all ScotRail services after 9pm. Fans should expect that alcohol will be banned on many trains to Haymarket before the game too, to ensure everyone can enjoy their journeys in comfort and safety.
  • Consider aiming to arrive at Murrayfield when doors open, to avoid the busiest travel times. Remember, many commuters will be travelling home from about 4pm to 6pm.
  • To keep people moving through stations – without too many customers on platforms at once – queuing systems may be in place at times. Staff will help guide you safely to your next available train
  • Please follow any instructions from the additional customer service staff that ScotRail will have on the ground. They’re there to help your day run smoothly.

Car Travel – It should be noted there is no parking provision for private vehicles within the grounds of Murrayfield Stadium. Many streets in the immediate environs of the stadium will be subject to parking restrictions to ensure the free flow of traffic in and around the stadium. On-street parking will as a result be very limited and we would advise that if you have to travel by car that you park a sensible walking distance from the stadium. Please also note that the A71 and A8 corridors become very congested following events at Murrayfield and that other routes out of the city such as Stevenson Drive out to South Gyle, Murrayfield Road & Ravelston Dykes out towards Queensferry Road, and Slateford Road are usually far less congested. It is also permissible to use the bus lanes at this time of night on these main corridors.
