There are buses every 10 or 15 minutes from Glasgow International Airport to Buchanan bus station.

Although Prestwick is 50km from the city there is a train station at the airport and Glasgow Central is only 45 minutes away.

               

Rail:       As a general rule Glasgow Central Station serves southern Scotland, England and Wales,               and Queen Street station serves the north and east.

                There are buses every 10 minutes between them

Buses:   All long-distance buses arrive and depart from Buchanan bus station.

               

Road      From North & East:

                Keep in right-hand lane at Junction 18, then continue forward (signposted Charing X,     Kelvingrove)

                Bear left onto A80, and then continue straight through three sets of traffic lights.

                Branch left (signposted Clydebank,SECC A814)

                At traffic lights, turn right onto A814 (signposted SECC West, Clyde Tunnel, and Clydebank)

                Scotstoun Stadium is now a short distance ahead on your right.

               

                From South & West

                Merge from M74 or M77 onto M8 and leave M8 at Junction 25

You could strike lucky, and obtain free parking on the south side of Dumbarton Road, a 10-minute walk to the ground.

There is a park-and ride alternative: Leave the M74 at Junction 1, and follow signs for the Shields Road Park and Ride. For £5 you can park all day and they even throw in a return subway ticket.

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter

The Autumn Window is not entirely open (Tue, 23 Oct 2018)
Rugby’s autumn internationals will be ready to rumble in a couple of weeks. England have a huge game against South Africa at Twickenham, Wales meet Scotland in Cardiff and Ireland face Italy in Chicago. These are big occasions with significant revenues. It is strange, then, that no one in charge of selling tickets, hospitality packages … Continue reading The Autumn Window is not entirely open

Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football? (Tue, 09 Oct 2018)

It is because the cry, so often last season, was that rugby was becoming football. Coaches being sacked, the developing transfer market, players talking back … Continue reading Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football?

Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal (Tue, 29 May 2018)
Longevity has come up short. The announcement that Arsène Wenger would leave Arsenal meant this season was the last for the longest-serving club heads in football and rugby’s premierships. Similar to Wenger at Arsenal, Jim Mallinder at Northampton had gone from managing the champions to missing out on a place in the top four for … Continue reading Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal

Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better? (Tue, 01 May 2018)
Is rugby popular, or not very popular at all? The answer is, perhaps weirdly, both. When it comes to international rugby, cup finals, or some annual “special” games, it attracts big numbers. 55,000 fans went to Murrayfield to see Saracens beat Clermont in 2017, 74,000 watched Wales beat Scotland, 82,000 watched England beat Wales and … Continue reading Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better?
