England Match Tickets

ATAC will issue a guide for Wembley nearer the time of the game but discussions with the SFA ahead of the Slovakia game highlighted a potential challenge with the ticket sales period. Please note that the tickets for Wembley will go on sale shortly after our return from Slovakia. The SSC will be recording the Slovakia point before releasing the tickets –v- England, this will result in a short purchasing window, the SSC are aware of this but have recognised that this is the best way to ensure that the points system is up to date, ATAC supports this position – Keep an eye on your emails.
