Scotstoun capacity increased for remainder of the season

Glasgow Warriors have today confirmed that the capacity of Scotstoun Stadium will be increased to around 7,000 following huge demand for tickets for the upcoming European Rugby Champions Cup match with Bath.
 
A new covered 864-seater west stand will be constructed and will be in place for the visit of the English Premiership side on Saturday 18 October.
 
Tickets in this stand are available now from www.glasgowwarriors.org and anyone who has purchased a standing ticket in the east terrace will be able to upgrade their ticket.
 
Glasgow Warriors managing director Nathan Bombrys said: "We've already sold around 5,000 tickets for our European Rugby Champions Cup opener with Bath later this month.
 
"With over 3,300 season ticket members this season – a record number for the club – and an increasing number of supporters attending individual games we've moved quickly to increase the capacity of the stadium.
 
"Thanks to Scottish Rugby and Glasgow Life we've managed to secure an additional covered stand which will be in place until the Glasgow 7s in May.
 
"This means more covered seating will be available for our supporters and we're delighted it will be in place for the visit of Bath – who currently sit second in the Aviva Premiership.”

Tickets are available from www.glasgowwarriors.org and by calling the ticket office on 0844 800 3490 (Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm). Supporters who would like to upgrade their standing ticket for a seat in the west stand for the Bath game should call the ticket office.
