Tartan Army handed 8,000 tickets for Gibraltar clash

Scotland have been handed a huge 8,000 ticket allocation for their final Euro 2016 Group D qualifying game against Gibraltar at the Estadio Algarve.

The result of the October 11 match in Portugal could prove crucial to Scotland’s hopes of securing an automatic place for the finals in France, with only three points currently separating leaders Poland and Gordon Strachan’s third placed team

And the Tartan Army have been given the chance to mobilise one of their biggest travelling supports in recent times after being handed nearly a third of the 30,000 seater arena in Faro.

Tickets are priced £18 and go on sale from noon tomorrow to members of the Scotland Supporters Club that have between two and ten away match points.

Gibraltar have been forced to play their matches 250 miles away in Portugal as the British Overseas Territory does not have a stadium that complies with UEFA regulations.

Scotland return to action next month with matches against Georgia and Germany and host Poland three days before they take on Gibraltar.
