First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said on Friday that Scotland is still have an “absolutely intent” on hosting matches at Euro 2020 this summer, says
Glasgow is one of 12 host cities for the delayed championships, but a failure to indicate to Uefa that supporters will be allowed to attend has put that at risk.
“Nobody wants Scotland to lose the Euros,” Sturgeon said. “And I don’t think we should be in the position right now of thinking that’s the case.
“All countries are grappling with this, not just Scotland. We are standing here on 5 March, and while we are really hopeful and you are getting signs of a lot of optimism from us today, looking too far ahead is just difficult to do.”
Scotland’s men will this summer play at their first major tournament for 23 years in the Euro finals, which were postponed by 12 months because of the coronavirus pandemic.
