The former Scotland midfielder believes working-class fans are being priced out of the European Championships in Hampden.

The UEFA EURO 2020 tickets went on sale today.

Prices are different, depending on which of the 12 host cities they are sold.

But for Scotland, the games at Hampden cost £45, £111 and £165.

And for former Scotland national team midfielder, John Collins, the working-class fans are being priced out.

“I would love to see prices really cheap, for working-class families,” said Collins to the BBC.

“I’d like to see family tickets. But we don’t price the tickets, that’s UEFA.

He explained: “I believe 45 euros is the cheapest tickets so hopefully the Scottish public will buy those up.”

“I don’t think they’ll be buying the expensive ones.”

“If Scotland qualifies for the finals you could sell Hampden out twice, no doubt about that,” he concluded.

The EURO 2020 tournament will take place between June 12th and July 12th in 12 different host cities all around Europe.

The cities chosen are London, Munich, Rome, Baku, Saint Petersburg, Bucharest, Amsterdam, Dublin, Bilbao, Budapest, Glasgow, and Copenhagen.
