Glasgow is a city of many things: rain, cold, beautiful Victorian architecture, haggis, Scottish people and a fierce football rivalry which lies at the heart of most Glaswegians. However, football is not the only sport at large in Glasgow. There are many different teams in and around Glasgow who offer a variety of student deals for tickets to live games. Here’s a list of the teams in Glasgow which offer special student priced tickets, so get yourself down for some live sporting action!

This is a great opportunity to watch a different sport live, a cheap night out for your mates and something fun and interesting to do. Who knows, your support might just be what the Glasgow Rocks need to turn their luck around? With a cheesy motto ‘We Will Rock You’, a packed crowd and a great atmosphere Glasgow Rocks games are a guaranteed great night.
Currently third in the Rabo Direct Pro12 table having beaten a number of the UK’s best teams this season, The Glasgow Warriors are in fine form and are fighting fit and ready. Go against the Glaswegian trend and catch a game of rugby for a tenner! If you’re a student coming to Glasgow you might even be able to catch the warriors playing against your local team! A great, exciting day out, good atmosphere and a perfect alternative to another sticky-floored, boring pub!
