First look at UEFA EURO 2020 Fan Zone at Glasgow Green as the venue prepares to welcome fans.

Up to 6,000 people a day, split into two sessions, will gather in the fan zone in Glasgow Green to watch matches on every day of the tournament, which is the first the Scotland men’s team have qualified for in more than two decades.

The event area has a capacity of 80,000, but just 3,000 fans are permitted at each of the two sessions per day, with a break between them to allow the site to be cleaned.

Finishing preparations are made to the UEFA EURO 2020 Fan Zone at Glasgow Green which is set to open today, Friday June 11.
