Scots games to be shown live on BBC

Four of Scotland’s five 2014 World Cup qualifying away games will be screened live by BBC Scotland, with the fifth match in Wales likely to be shown on Sky Sports.

BBC will provide live coverage from the match away to Belgium on 16 October this year, and next year against Serbia (26 March), Croatia (7 June) and Macedonia (10 September). Ewan Angus, BBC Scotland’s head of sport, said: “It’s great news for our audiences that we will be bringing full live coverage and in-depth analysis from each of these crucial games. Scotland’s qualifying matches for major tournaments always attract huge interest and we’re delighted we can bring our viewers all the twists and turns.”
