How many Scotland fans will be going to Stuttgart?

Usually, UEFA issues ticket allocations as a percentage of the overall capacity of the host stadium for events such as Euro 2024. However, this year, they are doing things a little bit differently.

The governing body have introduced one quota for tickets, standardised across all matches, meaning Scotland will have 10,000 standard tickets available to them for their game against Hungary. Although, with that being said, there will likely be far more Scotland fans in Stuttgart than that figure on matchday.

In addition to the 10,000 standard tickets, Scotland will also be granted a minimum of 20 easy-access seats as well as a minimum of 20 wheelchair bays too.

Due to there being no real ‘away section' in the traditional sense, with both sides having equal allocations, seating will work a little differently to at club level.

Instead, where you will be sat will depend on which category of ticket you purchase, although rival supporters will of course still be separated.

The four categories of tickets and their respective prices are as follows:

  • Fans first (behind the goals) – €30
  • Category 3 – (Located in the corners and behind the goals) – €60
  • Category 2 – (Located in the corners, behind the goals, and in the main stands) – €150
  • Category 1 (Located in the main stands or the lower blocks of the corners) – €200
