Members of the Tartan Army from Glasgow who won't make it to Germany this summer can still enjoy all of the action for free at a huge new fan zone in the Merchant City.

Taking place at Merchant Square, the Euro 2024 Fanzone will be showing all of the Euros matches on their new 13k laser projector.

With seating for 300 fans in the courtyard space of the Square, they are inviting all fans to come and enjoy the Euros fun.

The Fanzone will be a hub for Scotland fans and will feature the opening match, Germany v Scotland on June 14 as well as the other games against Switzerland on June 19 and Hungary on June 23.

The team revealed that before each of the Scotland matches, fans will be treated to some pre-match entertainment by local singer-songwriter, Kirk Strachan.

Known for his melodic rock style and eclectic range of influences, Kirk will be entertaining the crowd from 6 pm on the build-up to the national team’s key games.

Open between 5 pm and 11 pm, over the month-long tournament, seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

A spokesperson for Merchant Square said that if the seating area is full, fans are welcome to book a table in one of the many bars and restaurants in Merchant Square including Bar Soba, Metropolitan, O’Neill’s, Pania, Sano, Table Twenty-Eight and The Tap Yard.

Fans can access drinks and food from each of these venues in the Square from the Fanzone itself

They added: “For those unable to make the pilgrimage to Germany, we’re delighted to be hosting the Merchant Square Euro 2024 Fanzone – sponsored by Tennent’s - a hub for all Scotland fans!

"Entry to the Fanzone is free, and you’ll be guaranteed a great atmosphere. Good luck Scotland!”
