SCOTLAND fans’ chances of securing tickets for the Euros have been boosted after an update from Uefa.

Steve Clarke‘s national side are off to Germany for the summer tournament and many members of the Tartan Army have secured briefs for the matches, which includes a glamour fixture against the hosts in the opening match in Munich on June 14.

Punters were left furious last month with some unable to buy tickets during Uefa’s website “shambles”.

Now Scots have one last chance to attend the matches against Germany, Switzerland and Hungary after it was announced 100,000 briefs for the tournament will be available to buy this week.

A statement on the competition‘s website read: “With UEFA EURO 2024 set to kick off in less than 50 days, UEFA will be putting additional tickets on sale at 11:00 CEST on Thursday 2 May, available to purchase on EURO2024.com/tickets.

“The released tickets will include tickets offered for resale via the official resale platform in March/April, tickets made available after the finalisation of stadium configurations and a significant number of restricted-view tickets at discounted prices.

“The last-minute sale will run on a first-come, first-served basis until all tickets are sold, and this is likely to be the last chance for fans to purchase tickets to watch EURO 2024 matches live at a stadium.

“As with previous sales phases, the tickets are expected to sell out very quickly – especially for high-demand fixtures, such as games involving the host nation Germany or the final itself. The number of available tickets will vary from match to match. In total, more than 100,000 tickets will be released.

“Should any remaining tickets become available in the build-up to the final tournament, an announcement will be made on EURO2024.com/tickets.

One Scot who says he will not be travelling as a fan is former Rangers and Aberdeen star Ross McCrorie.

The Bristol City defender is hoping that a new Uefa rule allowing for increased squad sizes from 23 to 26 will mean he can secure a place on the plane with the rest of Clarke’s team.

Six maddest moments at the Euros

He said: “The news that squads would be bigger was music to my ears.

“I got a few messages from SFA staff wishing me well when I was injured, and I’ve had a few since saying how happy they are that I’m back playing.

“I don’t think I’ll be going to Germany as a fan if I don’t get picked.

“I have got a good relationship with the Scotland players, and having been in squads with the Rangers boys I’m itching to make my international debut.

“It would be a great honour to get called up this summer.”
