Petrofac Training Cup Final at Hampden Park


The SPFL have announced that the 2016 Petrofac Training Cup Final between Rangers and Peterhead will be played at Hamdpen Park.

The match will be played on Sunday 10th April with a 3pm kick off time and BBC Alba will broadcast the game live.

It will be the first time that League One side Peterhead has reached the final of the competition, while Rangers will appear in their second final losing their first 1-0 against Raith Rovers in 2014 at Easter Road.

Hampden Park, with a capacity of 52,063, will play host to the final for the first time ever as both clubs and governing body look to profit from the sizeable number of Rangers fans who are likely to attend the match.

The Ibrox side have been allocated an initial 25,000 tickets for the match, with more available if that allocation is sold out. While Peterhead have been given an initial 3,600 for their fans.

Peterhead secured their place in the final after beating Queen’s Park away 2-1, while Rangers secured a 4-0 win over St.Mirren.

SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster said: “It’s fantastic news that Scotland’s National Stadium, Hampden Park, will host this season’s Petrofac Training Cup Final between Rangers and Peterhead. It’s a fitting venue for a showpiece final and we hope that the competitive pricing will prove attractive to fans.

“Petrofac Training Services is a very active and engaging partner for the competition and it’s great to once again see so much fan-focused activity being planned for April’s final, building on the success of last season.”

Price of tickets are: Adults £20, concessions (16/17 year-olds & over 65s) £10 and U-16s £5.
