Scotland’s Euro 2024 campaign has kicked off impressively, securing a perfect record of four wins from four matches and amassing a remarkable 12 points. This impressive start has propelled them to an eight-point lead at the top of Group A. 

While the tournament is only at its halfway stage, and there are still four games remaining, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to doubt the optimism of the Tartan Army, who are already contemplating booking flights and getting their Euro 2024 tickets to Germany.

The recent thrilling comeback against Norway and the bizarre rain delay in the victory over Georgia should not overshadow the significance of the six points Scotland has just earned. Manager Steve Clarke, however, remains level-headed, cautioning that 12 points won’t be enough to secure qualification. Generally, 15 points have proven sufficient in five-team groups, as was the case for the Czech Republic in Euro 2020 qualifying, while Wales secured qualification with 14 points.

Hypothetically, Norway, as the third-seeded team in Group A, remains Scotland’s main rival for a top-two finish, provided Spain also progresses. 

Norway recently clinched their first win of the qualifying campaign against Cyprus, but their maximum achievable points total is 16. On the other hand, Scotland is just two victories away from surpassing that tally. Even if they were to collect a mere five points from their remaining fixtures against Cyprus (away), Spain (away), Georgia (away), and Norway (home), it would guarantee to finish above Norway.

This position would secure a place in the European Championship finals next summer. Scotland is in a great position that would require a colossal collapse to squander—uncharacteristic even by Scottish standards. 

The prospect of qualifying has led former Scotland center-back Willie Miller to confidently state that the Tartan Army can start anticipating the Euros, expressing his belief that it would take an incredible sequence of results for Scotland to miss out.

The sense of winning has also got to the Scottish fans, with aspirational fans already on the lookout for possible group stage Euro 2024 tickets to see how they could fill up the stadiums in Germany next year. Some might argue it is too early, but Scotland cannot bottle this. 

However, maintaining a sense of caution, it’s essential to acknowledge that football can be unpredictable. Norway possesses a talented squad and will likely pressure Scotland, especially in their final group game in Glasgow. Additionally, Scotland should be aware of the challenges that lie ahead, including a potentially tricky trip to Georgia. 

This team has proven problematic for Scotland, resulting in failed qualification attempts.

Furthermore, with three of their final four qualifiers taking place away from home, including a formidable encounter with Spain, the job still needs to be completed. Nevertheless, under the guidance of Steve Clarke and with this group of players, Scotland has displayed a new level of performance and set higher standards. They have ignited hope and excitement among generations of Scotland fans who have endured prolonged suffering.

While something is not guaranteed, betting against Scotland’s ability to turn more dreams into reality would be wise. The team has instilled a newfound belief and is potentially on track to secure a place in the Euro 2024 tournament.

UEFA Unveils Euro 2024 Mascot

The official mascot for UEFA EURO 2024 has been unveiled, and it is a bear, marking a historic first for the competition. Now, it’s time to give the mascot a name, and UEFA is seeking the public’s help in choosing one. The shortlist consists of four options: Albärt, Bärnardo, Bärnheart, and Herzi von Bär. All four names pay homage to the bear theme, with ‘bär’ meaning bear in German.

The bear mascot made a surprise debut at a primary school in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, emphasizing its goal to inspire children across Europe to engage in physical activity, love football, and embrace its values. The mascot will be officially introduced to German fans at the Arena Auf Schalke during a friendly match against Colombia.

Phillip Lahm, EURO 2024 tournament director, highlights the importance of stimulating children’s imagination through the mascot, hoping it will inspire them to enjoy playing football. The mascot will embark on a #MakeMoves journey, visiting schools across Europe and challenging students to engage in physical activities that bring the mascot to life. Cutting-edge motion capture technology will transform children’s special skills and celebrations into mascot animations for the tournament.

Celia Šašić, EURO 2024 tournament ambassador and DFB vice-president emphasizes the significance of instilling motion, playfulness, and team spirit from an early age. UEFA aims to inspire the next generation, promoting self-confidence, an active lifestyle, and an understanding of the importance of team spirit. The mascot serves as a powerful messenger for these values.

In two weeks, the mascot will receive its official name, determined by children participating in UEFA’s Football in Schools program and votes from the public on

How do Euro 2024 tickets work? 

​​The process of purchasing Euro 2024 tickets will vary depending on the nation’s matches you are interested in. The ticketing portal will open on October 3, 2023, for the general public to apply for tickets. However, the allocation of these tickets will only occur after the application window closes, which will be determined through a lottery system.

For fans of the 21 countries that have achieved automatic qualification, a dedicated sales phase will begin on December 2, 2023, shortly after the final draw for the competition. On the other hand, fans of the three nations that qualify through the playoffs must wait until March/April 2024 for the sales phase to begin after the playoffs.

This timeline provides fans ample time to plan and increase their chances of securing Euro 2024 tickets.

Regarding ticket prices, the official prices for Euro 2024 have yet to be released. However, they will be similar to the prices at Euro 2020. Ticket prices for Euro 2020 varied depending on the group of stadiums visited, with venues in Baku, Budapest, and Bucharest offering lower fees. 

As Euro 2024 will be exclusively held in Germany, ticket prices will likely resemble those of the more prestigious Euro 2020 venues. Here is a range of ticket prices at Euro 2020 according to UEFA:

– Group stage and Round of 16 fixtures: £43-£159

– Quarter-finals and opening match: £64-£193

– Semi-finals: £73-£512

– Final: £82-£813

Regarding hospitality Euro 2024 tickets, the process is more complex than the standard ticket purchasing system. UEFA has partnered with 2024 Hospitality Experience AG, which will create, promote, sell, and deliver unique ticket-inclusive hospitality packages for Euro 2024. There are four different packages available, which are yet to be finalized. 

While official sources might need more options early, trusted reseller platforms will be your go-to destination for Euro 2024 tickets next year.
