Euro 2024 site crashes as fans try to secure tickets for Germany

Around 100,000 tickets were released on Thursday with the tournament just over a month away.

The Euro 2024 website has crashed again as fans try to desperately to secure tickets for Germany.

Around 100,000 tickets were released on Thursday morning for games including Scotland’s tournament opener against the hosts in Munich.

But potential buyers were left frustrated after being greeted with an error message when they joined a queue.

Others were blocked by a faulty captcha system that asked them to type in a code that wasn’t displayed on the screen.

Several supporters have taken to social media to hit out at the issues after being denied the opportunity to purchase the elusive tickets.

Tens of thousands of Tartan Army faithful are expected to make the trip, many without tickets, to soak up the atmosphere in what promises to be a memorable summer of football.

The tournament is just over a month away with Steve Clarke’s men taking on Germany on June 14 ahead of a month of football with most of the continent’s top stars taking part.

Scotland will also take on Switzerland and Hungary as they look to reach the knockout stages of a major tournament for the first time ever.

The final will be held in Berlin on July 14.
