Tar­tan Army ticket boost for po­ten­tial party in the Algarve

The Herald - Herald Sport - - FOOTBALL -

SCOT­LAND fans will be handed a bumper al­lo­ca­tion of al­most 10,000 for what could be a Euro 2016 qual­i­fy­ing cel­e­bra­tion in the Algarve.

Gor­don Stra­chan’s side are in a good po­si­tion to reach their first ma­jor fi­nals in 18 years.

The Scots end their cam­paign with what should be a mere for­mal­ity away to Gi­bral­tar in Oc­to­ber in Faro. And the SFA will re­ceive an al­lo­ca­tion from the Gi­bral­tar FA of 9,800 briefs for the match, with Ire­land get­ting the same for their match there in Septem­ber.

Although the Es­ta­dio Algarve holds 30,000, not all of the sta­dium is open be­cause of the costs in­volved in hir­ing se­cu­rity for the Gi­bral­tar FA.

But with Scot­land cer­tain to bring the largest away sup­port for a Gi­bral­tar match, it seems cer­tain Stra­chan’s side will make the sta­dium feel like a home game for the visi­tors.
