In a tweet the city of Munich's official account expressed concern around overcrowding in the city, as fans gather for drinks at Marienplatz.

The account (@muenchen) wrote on Twitter/X: "URGENT!!! The #Marienplatz is overcrowded. There will definitely be no public viewing there. Please spread out elsewhere in the city! The fan zone is also about to close. Please don't go to the Olympiapark anymore! #uefaeuro2024 #munich #GERSCO".

Munich’s tweet warns that Olympiapark Fan Zone will soon shut its doors. The purpose-built zone closes temporarily upon hitting its 25,000-person capacity. 

It has been reported that over 200,000 Scots have flocked to Germany for the big opening match. 

Scotland crashed out in the group stages of the previous Italy 2021 Euros.  This year, the team hopes to build on their qualifier momentum to progress further in the Euros 2024.
