Recommended stations:

Wembley Stadium, London: The closest station to the event is Wembley Stadium (Zone 4). This is located directly outside of the venue. There will be queueing systems in place at Wembley Stadium station and other stations along the route and queueing times are likely to be very long.

The next closest station is Wembley Park. This is on the London Underground Jubilee Line and Metropolitan Lines and is a 15 minute walk to the stadium. If you require step free access, please use Wembley Park as Wembley Stadium station and lifts will be busier than usual.

Please note that for safety reasons, London Northwestern Railway trains will not call at Wembley Central on any matchdays.

Hampden Park, Glasgow:  The stadium is a 10 minute walk away from Mount Florida and Kings Park railway stations. Take the train from Glasgow Central to get to Mount Florida or Kings Park station.

Travel advice for fans:

If you haven't got a ticket for the game, we recommend that you support your team locally.

Train services are expected to be busier on match days making social distancing more difficult. If you do travel please wear a face covering unless you are exempt, travel at quieter times and reserve a seat where you can.

If you are travelling during the tournament, please make sure to book ahead to avoid any disappointment. For most long distance operators, you will not be able to travel on their services without a seat reservation. Most train operators are already fully booked on key football dates.

Please bear in mind that there will be limited hospitality available throughout the tournament. You will need to plan ahead to ensure that you have a place to stay to watch the football.

Please note that ScotRail are affected by industrial action on all Sundays during the tournament. There will be a very limited service operating on Sundays so please ensure you check before making local and cross country travel plans. You can find more details about the strike action here.
