UEFA Euro 2020: when is Scotland vs England at Euros in 2021, will fans be allowed - and full list of fixtures

Scotland’s scheduled group match against England at Wembley could be played in front of 10,000 spectators - but will crowds be allowed at Hampden?

A feast of football awaits fans this summer as the rearranged Euro 2020 tournament is scheduled to take place across the continent.

No fewer than 12 cities will host the championships in 2021 - including Glasgow and London - which will see Scotland’s men’s team compete at a first major football tournament since 1998.

Yet whether supporters will be allowed into grounds to witness Steve Clarke’s team play remains uncertain, with clarity called for over the easing of Covid restrictions.

Clarke has already spoken of his hopes for fans to be allowed into Hampden Park for Scotland’s games against the Czech Republic (14 June) and Croatia (22 June).

The third game, sandwiched between these fixtures, sees Scotland take on England at Wembley on 18 June - with a limited number of fans expected to be in attendance.

When is Euro 2020 taking place?

The 2020 European Championships is due to take place between 11 June and 11 July 2021.

The tournament, which will celebrate 60 years of the Euros, will kick off with a Friday night fixture between Turkey and Italy in Rome.

Where will Euro 2020 be held?

To help UEFA celebrate reaching the milestone, organisers want to bring the whole continent together - meaning the action will take place in 12 different countries.

Matches are scheduled to take place in 12 cities across Europe: Rome, Baku, Copenhagen, St Petersburg, Amsterdam, Bucharest, London, Glasgow, Bilbao, Dublin, Munich and Budapest.

As well as three group stage fixtures, Hampden will host a round of 16 knockout game with both semis and the final of the competition taking place at Wembley.

Will fans be allowed into grounds to watch Euro 2020?

With the Covid pandemic still prevalent across Europe, any hope of crowds returning to stadiums in time for the tournament seems dependent on each country’s vaccine rollout.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has outlined his intention for sports arenas in England to be at full capacity by 21 June, with a limited number of fans allowed in from 17 May.

Wembley is scheduled to host England vs Scotland in a group stage match on 18 June, which at the moment would see a reduced capacity of 10,000 witness the action in the stadium.

There was some frustration after the roadmap laid out by Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon only went up to the last week in April and didn’t mention the Euros specifically.

Though “summer sporting events” was included with talks continuing between the government and “partners and key stakeholders” involved in the decision-making process.

The UEFA website states that “more ticket information will be available in April 2021”.

What TV channels are Euro 2020 on in the UK?

Fans hoping to watch the Euro 2020 action on television in the UK can do so with the tournament being screened live on terrestrial TV channels BBC and ITV.

Each channel will have coverage of individual matches over the month of football fixtures, with both the BBC and ITV likely to air the final of the competition on 11 July.

Who is favourite to win the 2020 Euros?

The usual suspects of England, Belgium, France, Germany and Spain have the shortest odds with online bookies to win the tournament overall, according to oddschecker.com.

Scotland are 300/1 with BetFred, 250/1 with WilliamHill and 200/1 with SkyBet, PaddyPower, 888sport, BetFair, BetVictor and UniBet, according to the website on 24 February 2021.

England are 11/2 with Bet365 and BetWay to lift the Euro 2020 trophy, with other online bookies giving odds of 5/1 for Gareth Southgate's men to win the competition at Wembley.
