Tickets for the hotly anticipated curtain raiser in Scottish Speedway are now on sale.
Glasgow Tigers will face off against Edinburgh rivals, the Monarchs, in the first leg of the Scottish Cup Final at the Peugeot Ashfield Stadium on the 23rd of March.
Glasgow Tigers have gone through a period of change in the off season with 6 changes in personnel from the season before, a new assistant manager brought on board and perhaps most noticeably the redesign and widening of the Ashfield track. The historic Scottish Cup has been brought back for the 2018 season and this will be the first opportunity to see all these new changes in action.
Another new feature for the 2018 season is the partnership with ticketing partners, Ticket Arena. This partnership brings new possibilities to Glasgow Tigers and is a major move in the speedway world. Through our website, on the tab on our Facebook page and through the Ticket Arena website, Tigers fans will be able to secure their tickets prior to the meeting. On purchasing their ticket, they will receive an email with a barcode that will be scanned on entry to the stadium, removing the need to queue to purchase a ticket on match days. A separate queue will be in place for pre-purchase tickets and season tickets*.
Fans will also be able to secure their place in the seating area for the match prior to coming along. With limited seating in the stadium, this area tends to sell out on match days, so to avoid missing out fans can purchase in advance**.
Advance tickets purchased through the mediums above will incur a booking fee of £1 per ticket (not including seated ticket add-on). This fee allows for us to take advantage of Ticket Arena’s services, in both ticketing and marketing. General manager Ian Beattie has welcomed the partnership: “We’re excited to see how we can grow with Ticket Arena, their ticket system is excellent and will make things smoother for both us and the fans. Their marketing team has tied up with ours and they are going to do some great stuff this year to help try and grow the sport.”
Season tickets are also still available for the 2018 season, but will only be available until the 31st of March. These are available both instore and online.
*Season tickets are not valid for this match.
