Public Consultation Now Live

Local Stirling MP Alyn Smith has backed proposals aimed at protecting fans ahead of UEFA’s EURO 2028 tournament.

The Scottish Government are seeking views on plans to tackle ticket touts, ahead of the estimated three million ticket sales for the event – of which Glasgow will be one of 10 host cities.

As part of the consultation, stakeholders are asked to share their experiences and thoughts on the effectiveness of measures implemented during UEFA EURO 2020, which took place in 2021.

Alyn Smith MP said:

‘Folks across Stirling will be looking forward to the EURO 2028 tournament, and they deserve a great experience. Ticket touts undermine fair and equitable access, and these proposals will sensibly tackle them and help protect fans.

‘I encourage everybody with an interest in this world-class tournament to share their views and help to shape the legislation.’
