ATAC have provided some advice for our upcoming trip to Cyprus in the Euro 2020 Qualification campaign. We hope you find this Sporran Guide useful.
ATAC’s Chair and Vice Chair, Martin Riddell, and Graeme Baxter, attended a meeting earlier this week at the invitation of the Major Events Team at Scottish Government, to discuss the UEFA European Championship (Scotland) Bill following its introduction at the end of September. The basis of the bill is to put protections in place for the Euro’s next year taking place, and impacting supporters, in Scotland. This involves stringent legislation on ticket touting, advertising, and street trading, along with the provision to police and enforcement officers to implement fully.
Ticket Touting and the resale of tickets for any kind of profit, for matches in Glasgow, or by individuals in Scotland, will be a criminal offence, in addition to breaching conditions set out by UEFA. We would encourage anyone wishing to attend the matches to apply for tickets through UEFA, or in the event of Scotland qualifying, the Scotland Supporters Club / SFA. Restrictions on advertising and street trading will be in place at Hampden, a perimeter surrounding the stadium, and within the event zones to be located within the City Centre.
ATAC are fully supportive of the measures being put in place to protect supporters, and will keep supporters up to date on further developments as the tournament nears. You can keep up to date on its progression through parliament by visiting the Scottish Government website
