The Scottish Government has given the green light for 12,000 fans to attend Euro 2020 matches at Hampden this summer.

Four fixtures will take place at the national stadium including Scotland's group stage fixtures against the Czech Republic and Croatia.

A decision on the Fan Zone in the city will be made at the end of April.

A joint statement from the SFA and Glasgow Life read: "The Scottish FA and Glasgow Life (on behalf of Glasgow City Council) have been working on a range of planning scenarios for hosting the four UEFA EURO 2020 matches in Glasgow in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, both in terms of allowing spectators in the stadium and the creation of a Fan Zone in the city for the duration of the tournament.

"Following extensive consultation with the Scottish Government and public health advisers, the Local Organising Structure can confirm that it has submitted details of its preferred option for admitting spectators to the stadium to meet today’s (7 April) UEFA deadline.

"We are delighted that the Scottish Government has given approval to allow spectators up to 25% of the stadium capacity (approximately 12,000 - based on the UEFA EURO 2020 venue overlay and seating configuration) for each of the four games to be staged at Hampden Park. Naturally, this will be subject to continued progress with reducing the prevalence of the virus and the roll-out of the vaccination programme.

"A decision on the Fan Zone in the city will be made at the end of April.

"On 9 April UEFA will be in contact with all ticket holders advising them on the latest tournament arrangements including ticketing and travel information. For more information visit"

Commenting on the news that fans will be able to cheer on Scotland at Hampden Park in June, Nicola Sturgeon said: “I’m delighted we have been able to confirm that, thanks to Scotland’s progress in suppressing COVID-19, 12,000 spectators will be able to attend Hampden for the four EURO 2020 games this summer.

“This is a significant moment which celebrates just how far Scotland has come in tackling the COVID pandemic. Allowing fans to come together to watch Scotland play at our national stadium is a huge milestone, thanks to the dedication of fans sticking to the public health guidance.

“The restrictions set out over the last year have been really difficult for everyone - but I am looking forward to joining the Tartan Army in cheering on Scotland in June at Hampden Park.

“The country has delivered for the fans - now it’s all eyes on the team to deliver the results!”
