Away fans guide: Travel Delays expected

Hamilton Academical versus Morton

Betfred Cup, second round

Tuesday 9 August 2016 | 7.45pm kick-off

By John Malcolm

The Morton support have been allocated the North Stand and enter the Superseal Stadium via turnstiles 10, 11 and 12.

For fans with accessibility difficulties or wheelchair users, an area on the concourse is available. If the weather is inclement, space is available in the East Stand area.

Catering and toilet facilities are located at the front of the North Stand.


Entry is £12 for Adults and £6 for concessions. Cash turnstiles.


Travel by Road: Major works on M8 at M74 especially around junction 5 (Raith interchange). Evening peak time delays of up to 45 minutes.

Advice from Hamilton Academical is use M74 (new motorway), exit junction 6 signposted Motherwell and Hamilton. This will add time to your journey but will avoid the M74 at Raith.

Please allow plenty extra time for the road journey to and from Hamilton.

On the return, Transport Scotland may be undertaking routine evening maintenance on the M8 and some lane closures may be experienced; however, delays, if any, should be minimal.


Bus and minibus parking is available opposite the ground just off Racecourse Road. There is also council parking about five minutes’ walk from the ground.

In terms of car parking, large public car parks are available in Caird Street and Beckford Street and provide easy access and egress for the stadium, which is a few minutes’ walk.
