Briefs from the East

THE management of Glasgow Tigers and Edinburgh Monarchs have come to the agreement that their fans can buy Scottish Cup tickets for both home and away legs from their own club, meaning all proceeds for home and away ticket sales purchased by their own fans will be kept by each club.

Glasgow’s Gerry Facenna and Edinburgh’s John Campbell hope that this arrangement will encourage more away fans at both legs, thus benefiting both clubs. 

The first fixture takes place at the Peugeot Ashfield Stadium onMarch 23, and the return fixture is at Armadale on March 30. Tapes-up for both fixtures is 7.30pm.

For the first leg, Edinburgh fans can purchase their tickets through the Edinburgh Monarchs’ website at the standard Glasgow gate ticket prices below:

Adult – £17
Student* – £10
Child 12-17 – £10
Under 12 – free

For the return fixture at Armadale, Glasgow Tigers fans will be able to purchase tickets online* via the Tigers website, or physical tickets can be purchased from the Tigers Den at the Edinburgh pre-matchday prices below:

Adult – £17.50
Senior – £15.50
Student – £15.50
Child 12-16 – £7.50
Child 5-11 – £2.50

Tickets for the Edinburgh leg will go on sale from both clubs tomorrow (March 12), as will tickets to the Glasgow leg purchased through Edinburgh. Glasgow home leg tickets are already available from Glasgow.

For both matches, a representative from each respective club will be on the gate to assist with entry for travelling fans.

Both clubs are optimistic that both fixtures will be well-attended by both home and away supporters to add to the spectacle of the occasion, and providing this is the case, the clubs will look to place the Scottish Cup back on the fixture list for all future seasons.

Glasgow Tigers and Edinburgh Monarchs are also delighted to be offering a free coach to the away fixture for those who purchase an away ticket through their own club.  Details of this will follow shortly.  

*Booking fee will be covered by Glasgow Tigers.
