When are Scotland playing, Euro 2024 Scotland fixtures

For the first time since the World Cup in France back in 1998, it will be Scotland that will kick off the tournament on June 14. Here are the dates, times and locations of Scotland’s group fixtures.

Scotland’s route to the knockouts

With the squad aiming to be the first side in history to qualify for the latter stages of a major tournament, we look at the potential route Scotland can take to the last 16.

If Scotland win Group A: Should Clarke’s side top the group, they will face the runner-up of Group C in the round of 16. Which could see a mouth-watering last 16 clash with England take place.

If Scotland finish second in Group A: As runners up in the group, they will face the runner-up of Group B in the round of 16. Known as the group of death, Scotland could face any of Spain, Croatia, Italy or Albania. Should they navigate the last 16, this route would likely result in a quarter-final meeting with England.

If Scotland finish as one of best third place teams: This could present any number of scenarios. One thing that is certain is that this would 100% result in Scotland facing a group winner in the round of 16. The most likely opponents would either be the Group B (Spain, Italy, Croatia, Albania) winner, the Group F winner (likely Portugal), or the Group E winner (likely Belgium).
