Tickets for Scotland’s Euro 2024 group games are going back on sale after the Scottish FA fixed the issue that caused Wednesday’s release to be cancelled.

Fans were stunned when Hampden bosses were forced to ditch their plans at short notice, but after work was done behind the scenes to resolve technical problems, the Tartan Army will be able to begin purchasing tickets from noon on Thursday.

Only 10,000 tickets are being allocated to each nation per game, prompting the Scottish FA to put in place a system to reward the most loyal supporters.

Points are given to Scotland Supporters’ Club member for attending games, and the fans with the most points were to get priority access to the hard-to-get tickets, but a problem has seen the sale paused at the last minute.

Fans who had accumulated 12 points or more were to be sent access codes on Wednesday morning that would allow them to buy tickets for each game directly when UEFA’s purchasing platform opened at noon. Those with fewer points would then be offered an opportunity to buy remaining tickets at later dates.

However, supporters who had 11 loyalty points have been sent access codes in error, prompting the Scottish FA to hastily cancel the sale, saying that they would contact Supporters Club members when the issue had been resolved.

That work has now been completed and the Scottish FA has emailed eligible members with new codes.

The national team will begin their campaign against the hosts in the opening game at Munich’s Allianz Arena on June 14.

That match will be followed with a clash with Switzerland in Cologne five days later.

The group stage campaign will conclude against Hungary at the MHP Arena in Stuttgart on June 23.
