SCOTLAND fans are paying up to nine times more for match tickets than their Group D rivals, it has been revealed.

The cheapest tickets for Scotland’s Euro 2016 qualifier with the Republic of Ireland at Celtic Park are priced at £35, while supporters of Poland and Georgia can pick up tickets for as little as £4.

It is believed that a number of tickets for the Irish clash, available for £45, also remain unsold

The Scottish FA have also refused to lower ticket prices for Scotland’s match against Group D minnows Gibraltar, prompting fears of a fans boycott over the prices.

There were over 15,000 empty seats when Scotland took on Georgia at Ibrox, but SFA chiefs are asking for £35 plus booking fee for the cheapest tickets to watch Scotland play Gibraltar.

Hamish Husband, spokesman for the West of Scotland Tartan Army, told the Sunday Mail: “Georgia are showing value for money for a game against top quality opposition.

“There is anger over the SFA’s stance - their ludicrous ticket prices have backfired.”
