The Euro 2020 Hampden ticket flop as Scotland goes against the grain
UEFA received just 90,000 applications for tickets for Euro 2020 games at Hampden during December.
The tournament is to take place across 12 cities and Glasgow received the second lowest amount of applications during a busy period for UEFA.
Azerbaijan capital Baku is the only venue with less than Glasgow, with London getting two million in comparison to Scotland’s dismal figures.
Baku has just 55k, while the next closest to Scotland is Bucharest who have had more than 100k more applications than Glasgow.
It comes despite there being an unprecedented level of ticket requests with almost nine million during December.
That figure is more than three times the number requested for the same period in the build up to Euro 2016.
A total of 28.3m has been made throughout the process with London and Munich the top two.
Copenhagen is the third city with more than one million requests.
Dublin has had 465k applications while Italian capital Rome is on 425k.
The good news for Scotland is that if Steve Clarke’s men qualify for Euro 2020 then almost half the fans in Hampden will be the Tartan Army.
More than 41 percent of tickets for that game will go to Scots.
Of the four games due to be held at Hampden, the clash between Croatia and Czech Republic has been the most sought after so far.
Rangers star Borna Barisic is likely to be playing in that game, with his team-mate Nikola Katic also hoping to earn a call-up.
