How many Scotland fans are going to Munich?

It is difficult to put an exact number on the number of Scotland fans in Munich for Euro 2024. Rough estimates suggest that the number will exceed 100,000 with the Tartan Army keen to make the most of the tournament, given that Germany is an easy country to get to from Scotland and the fact they aren't regulars at international tournaments.

Officially, Scotland have been given 10,000 tickets for the match against Germany at the Allianz Arena but more are expected to be inside the stadium through resale tickets purchased from German fans. Also, by the law of averages, some Scotland fans will have been successful in the Euro 2024 ballot for ‘neutral' tickets.

Despite that, Germany are expected to have far more fans inside the Allianz Arena on June 14th as they are the host nation. Therefore, the match will feel like an away game for Scotland the Tartan Army.

Where do the Scotland fans sit in the Allianz Arena?

Typically for matches at the Allianz Arena, away fans are placed in the upper corner of the stadium from blocks 347-340 on the east side of the ground. However, as this is an international tournament, Scotland fans have been placed elsewhere.

The 10,000 contingent will be sat behind one of the goals on the north side of the stadium in the lower tier. It should make for a great spectacle, especially when Scotland are attacking that goal. Scotland fans who have obtained tickets not from the SFA will be dotted around the stadium at random.
