    SSC tickets have not gone on sale yet.

    I believe the Croatia v Czech game is the same time as England v Scotland so canít see that being a huge draw with locals.
    It's on the same day, but not the same time. I have tickets for it, and have been fretting about the logistics 😆

    Imagine the seething from most people (myself included) if we can’t go to Hampden but England has full capacity crowds?

    I donít think that seethe is the right word to use here.. bewilderment is more what I was thinking.

    All the other nations are just guessing. They can't possibly be making cast iron guarantees. So why can't Scotland and Ireland do the same?

    Who do Uefa think they are? What happens if a host caves just now and says "yes" but there's a problem in that city when its game comes around that means the city can't allow people to attend? Will uefa pull the venue at the last minute? If they would then where's the point in taking assurances now? And if they wouldn't where's the need for assurances at all?

    This isn't about the fans. This is about the appearance of uefa's product. There are far more important considerations just now so uefa really should just wind their neck in.

    Damned if you do, Damned if you don't.

    If we do as the Jambos did this season and give people hope of attending the game you disappoint and get grief if that can't happen.

    If they take a more cautious approach and fans do get in then it's "why didn't you tell us sooner?"

    Prepare for the worst hope for the best is the only thing we as fans can do right now.

    UEFA are a commercial organisation. As such, they have to plan their business in advance. The process they're going through just now is part of that planning. Were they not to do so, they would be leaving things too late to organise, and (rightly) come in for a lot of stick.

    I think they're in a difficult position, but I can't see what else we can expect them to do 3 months out from the tournament.

    I get that, but what use are assurances at the moment ( or in the next four weeks)? Nothing can be guaranteed, so what happens if assurances prove false in reality?

    Not to take away from that, what do they mean by fans? I don't know the answer - are they talking about, in our case, punters from Glasgow or are they wanting folk from all over to be able to go? That's not aimed at you, CWG, if you don't know either!

    In this case, fans = sponsors (probably)

    The bit in bold is the key thing for the SG.

    If UEFA want Czechs and Croatians in Glasgow, the SG would probably say no at this stage. That leaves UEFA with a financial problem, as well as a logistical one.

    If UEFA say "locals only", the SG might say yes. But that still leaves UEFA with a financial problem, in that the Czech and Croatian fans would need to be reimbursed.

    The problem is so many people are now risk averse to the point of 100% caution is the new normal. ďCan I go for a walk with a friend Nicola?Ē

    Maybe they have a clear plan on how to restrict attendance and control it through staggered entry and exit, pre testing, 20% capacity a d have a government that can see not everything is a black or white answer? NS is opening religious venues unrestricted for Easter. 150 people in a mosque for 2 hours x 100 or 10k people outside in a 52k stadium?

    That might be the best chance of Scotland fans seeing any games.
