Logistically that would’ve made more sense.

Would likely have resulted in the games being played in empty stadiums though. How many locals would be turning up to see Scotland v Israel if it was played in Lisbon /Paris /Munich etc.

Not sure why they felt the need to change the European championships. At the moment anyway, the new format doesn’t look as good. 

It's a one off to celebrate some anniversary or something. I think it was one of Platini's ideas. Goes back to the normal format next time round when it will be in Germany.

Sure he made some money off of it.

I had in mind one of the competing nations host it. That way you know where the game is going to be.

Was it not a case that nobody wanted it? Seem to recall in the late 00's the big vision was Turkey to get it on the back of a Olympic's bid which never happened, and the likes of Germany, Italy and Spain showing no interest, with the only "serious" bid coming from Azerbaijan. 

Deadline for bids came and went, then the next thing UEFA said that it would be held across Europe as a whole (think it was down to getting their fingers burnt a tad with Euro 2012 with nations being overly keen to host, but not got the infrastructure).

That would have been good. Both semis and the final at the same neutral venue. Like a wee mini tournament. 

Exactly what they did for League A...

Even more ridiculous that we didn’t try again after the failed 2008 bid.

Honestly, as a nation we have zero balls or confidence about us.

Not entirely true.

That was the nations league finals.

Technically you could win that and not qualify. 😂

If any of the teams from those finals had failed to qualify through the groups they’d have gone into the group A play offs.

Unfortunately the tournament as a whole is now far to big for us to host, and that includes co-hosting it with the Irish and Welsh (with the tournament expansion for 2016, I suspect UEFA's plans were for Spain, Italy, Germany, France and England to rotate it between themselves, with the occasional Dutch-Belgium co-host and maybe a trip to Russia once they had the World Cup out the way)

Remind who was it that was the driving force behind expanding the competition.

It was us and the FAI that proposed it in 2007.   Tail end of David Taylor's time as CEO, if I'm right.  He obviously went on to UEFA where it was subsequently agreed to increase it to 24 teams.

You’re right, but I was referring to us not bidding again for 2012 when nobody seemed to really want to host it.

We’d certainly struggle now I agree. So sadly our opportunity has gone for good.

2012 was given to Poland and Ukraine around 2004-ish, it was 2020 that nobody wanted, and the only serious bid was Azerbaijan, which after the mess which is turning into Qatar for the World Cup, was never going to happen (Turkey said their bid was only of the basis of a successful Olympics bid)

Semi prices:

Children and over 65s: £5 East/West, £10 North/South
East and West: £15 members, £20 general
North and South: £20 members, £25 general

 

(Norway are selling theirs for ~£41 long sides and ~£33 short sides.  Final tickets probably similar)

To be fair to them they have priced that very well.

I would imagine you would get to checkout then it would say you need a valid membership.

but your membership doesn't expire until 31/12/19 so it is still valid till then surely?

Scotland v Israel tickets will go on sale to 2020-21 members at 12 noon on Friday. Adult members can come along from £15 and junior and senior members can attend from just £5. Your support can make all the difference in March and we hope to see you there.

Brilliant pricing.

Considering membership was £50 not too long ago, I'm happy with £55 for renewal and a play off ticket.

Exactly. Very good value. 

A genuine reward for loyalty in the recent meagre years.

I think they missed a trick not having this sort of info out at the start of the month, but the pricing itself is good.
