But for those who have been unable to get flights or accommodation will be wondering where they can tune in to the three group matches against Germany, Hungary and Switzerland.

Many will be planning on getting tickets to fan zones around the country so they can cheer on their heroes alongside fellow Tartan Army supporters.

Whether you are in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen or Dundee, several fan zones have already been lined up, giving supporters plenty of options.

But fans in and around Glasgow have been left with a bitter blow after one popular outdoor venue on the outskirts of the city has had to pull the plug on their plans.

M&D’s Theme Park was due to showcase all three group games on the big screen but now the huge even is unfortunately cancelled, leaving those who had bought tickets now requiring a refund.

The event was only announced on April 5 with three live music acts providing pre-match entertainment before the group fixtures.

The Shambolics, Connor Fyfe and Stevie McCrorie were all confirmed and the park teased that more acts would be announced.

But a statement today read: “Unfortunately, this event will no longer take place.

“However, all customers can still watch every Euro game including every Scotland match at the sports bar and in the sports bar beer garden.”

The reason for the event being cancelled is not known but customers are still invited to watch the games at the sports bar and beer gardens on site.

Announcing the plans for the fan zone earlier this month, they wrote: “Gear up for the ultimate Euro experience at our outdoor football fan zone!

“Plus, each night we bring you live music from some of Scotland’s top acts to get you in the mood!

“Immerse yourself in the Tartan Army roars, enjoy the live music pre-match and settle into the game with food and drink. Plus, there will be theme park rides open for all the family to enjoy!”

SunSport has contacted M&D’s Theme Park for comment on the cancellation.
