Scotland fans selling Buckfast make a fortune in Munich

A group of Scotland fans selling Buckfast, a popular drink in the country, have made a killing in Munich after attracting a massive crowd of fellow Scots in the German capital.

With their side's opening fixture of Euro 2024 just hours away, the Tartan Army were very clearly in party mode and enjoying every second of it.

What is Buckfast?

For those that are unaware, Buckfast is a famous tonic wine brewed in Devon, England, that is hugely popular in Scotland and Ireland.

In fact, it is so popular that in large parts of Scotland, the drink has its own saying, ‘The Buck made me do it,' due to its strength.

It is a notorious home comfort that many travelling Scots perhaps accepted they would be without for the duration of their stay in Germany.

Enter group of Scotland fans selling Buckfast

That was, at least, until it became apparent that a group of Scotland fans were selling Buckfast in Munich, the location of the Tartan Army's opening game against Germany at Euro 2024 on June 14.

It has been reported that the group of supporters in question travelled to Germany in a van, carrying a massive volume of the drink, an act that led to one fan on social media hailing the Scottish fans as “unmatched”.

€20 is believed to be the asking price from the group for a half-bottle of Buckfast, and with the massive crowd it attracted, they are likely making an absolute fortune selling the beverage.

The perfect start for Scotland fans

With the Buckfast flowing in Munich, the Tartan Army had already had a better day than many of them might have expected.

They will now be heading to the game in a joyous mood, and if Steve Clarke's side were able to cause an upset and record a victory against the Germans, it would be the perfect start to Euro 2024 for the Scottish fans.

Whether that dream becomes a reality, however, remains to be seen.
