Two lucky football fans are being given the opportunity of a lifetime to join Scotland at Euro 2024 – by racing to Germany using only public transport.

Tennent’s is calling on Scotland’s “most dedicated fans” to get into three teams of two and take on a time sensitive 1,200-mile race from Hampden to Munich.

The race, which will be filmed for an online mini-series, will be narrated by Love Island’s Iain Stirling and will feature surprise appearances from Scotland football legends past and present along the way.

Competition holders Tennent’s said: “With fans preparing for a huge summer of football, Tennent’s is helping Scots get to Germany via a nail-biting race, starting in Glasgow and arriving in time to watch Scotland play the opening match of the 2024 European championships.

“After officially qualifying in November, Scottish football fans in their tens-of-thousands have started planning their transport and accommodation to experience the magic of Scotland competing on the global stage once again.

“But with the high demand, rooms are booking up, and seats on planes are few and far between, making it tough for desperate supporters who want to go.

“Thankfully, Scotland’s favourite beer is on hand. Tennent’s will send six lucky football fans to this year’s host nation, Germany – but only for those willing to take on an epic 1,200 mile challenge, to be filmed for an online mini-series, and narrated by Scots comedian Iain Stirling.

“Tennent’s is seeking three dedicated teams of two who will race from Hampden to Munich, using only public transport, all against the clock.

“Special guest appearances from Scottish football legends, ex and current, will surprise teams along the way, offering a helping hand at different stages of the journey.”

The journey will feature appearances by Scotland legends past and present.

The first team to get to Germany using only public transport, will win a “top tier” experience at the Euros – aswel as exclusive Scotland prizes including the chance to play at Hampden, a season pass for the next set of Scotland home games, and flights and accommodation for a future away game.

Other prizes include Stuart Armstrong’s hair gel, a Lyndon Dykes transferable tattoo, and a pair of John McGinn signed glasses.

The brewer added: “The first team to reach the finish line will join the Tartan Army in Germany for the length of the group stages.

“In addition, the winners will receive an incredible prize package, including flights and accommodation with the Scotland team for a future away game, a Scotland season pass for upcoming home games, a Perfect Draft Machine with Tennent’s Lager Kegs, a pair of John McGinn signed glasses and much, much more.

“Each step of the way will be captured for an online mini-series, narrated by Love Island’s very own Iain Stirling, giving fans the opportunity to keep up to date with the race progress.
