National Coach Steve Clarke issues rallying call as ticket prices confirmed from as little as five pounds
Scotland supporters received an early Christmas present with news that fans can attend the crucial UEFA EURO 2020 Play-Off semi-final against Israel next March from just FIVE pounds.
To help ensure as many supporters as possible can cheer on Steve Clarke and his squad, the Scottish FA has announced the lowest ticket prices for a qualification match in more than ten years, which includes:
• Kids under-16 and concession prices for over-65s of just £5
• Adult ticket prices from £15 in the East and West Stands for Scotland Supporters Club members
• Best seats in the house for Scotland Supporters Club members in the North and William Hill South Stands for £20
• A top category price for non-members of just £25 for North and William Hill South Stands
The pricing for the home match on Thursday, 26 March, is in recognition of the loyalty of supporters throughout the European Qualifying campaign which ended with Scotland finishing third in Group I but also to give the squad the best possible atmosphere in which to cement a final play-off spot away to the winners of Norway v Serbia five days later.
The stakes have never been higher, with Hampden Park, in Glasgow, one of 12 host cities for the competition’s 60th anniversary. The Scottish FA has also launched its campaign LET’S DO THIS to unite the country behind the national team.
The national team head coach, Steve Clarke, believes Scotland can return to a major tournament this summer and says it would be a fitting reward for the enduring spirit of the Scotland supporters.
“Since taking this job I have constantly underlined the importance of giving fans a reason to want to come back to Hampden in their droves,” he said. “We have won three successive matches for the first time in two years and could be just 180 minutes and two games away from qualifying for EURO 2020.
“The players have momentum and confidence back and the incentive is there for everyone, players and fans alike. The boost that the players would get from a capacity crowd at Hampden in March is colossal and I am pleased the chief executive and board have recognised the importance of the fans, for their support in general, but especially ahead of this crucial match against Israel.
“I said when I first arrived that I wanted to put a smile back on the faces of the Scotland supporters, to make Hampden our home and to make it a place to be feared for opponents. With the supporters fully behind us, reaching UEFA EURO 2020 is absolutely achievable and I speak on behalf of the squad in saying we will do everything in our power to make our supporters the life and soul of the party at EURO 2020 next summer. Let’s do this.”
