Matchday Guide | Viaplay League Cup (semi-final)

More than 7,000 Kilmarnock supporters are set to take over Mount Florida on Saturday evening as the club returns to Hampden Park for the first time in over a decade.

Derek McInnes will lead his side to The National Stadium to challenge Celtic in a Viaplay League Cup semi-final tie, which will kick-off at 5.30pm under the floodlights.

Entry Information

Supporters should note that ticket sales for the match will close at 2pm on Friday 13th January. Individuals that require their tickets to be reprinted must also provide details to the Killie Ticket Office prior to this deadline. You can contact the ticket office on or 01563 545311.

All requested reprints, and any tickets that require collection after 2pm on Friday 13th January, will be available to collect from the ticket cabin situated next to the South West turnstiles at Hampden Park. The ticket cabin will open at 4pm on matchday.

Travel information

Due to pre-planned network engineering works, replacement buses will be in operation in place of trains between Kilmarnock and Glasgow. Supporters using this route are encouraged to allow more time for travel and should note that fewer seats will be available than usual.

Additional travel information can be found on the Hampden Park website.

Supporters departing from Rugby Park are urged not to leave their cars in the club car park, which is likely to be full upon arrival due to staff parking. A drop off point will instead be in operation.

The cup tie will be broadcast to international Killie TV subscribers who can view coverage as part of their package by logging in as normal. John Barnes will be joined by Gerry McCabe in the Hampden Park commentary box on Saturday evening.
