Press release concerning ticketless away-team supporters
Only supporters with valid match tickets will be permitted to enter the Groupama Aréna for the international friendly match between Hungary and Scotland this evening.
According to information received by the Hungarian Football Federation (MLSZ), there are a number of Scotland fans who have arrived in Budapest without successully applying for valid match tickets for the international friendly match between Hungary and Scotland on Tuesday evening. Therefore, we call to the attention of these supporters that they will not be permitted entry to the stadium grounds.
In accordance with international regulations on ticket allocations for competitive matches, the MLSZ provided an area for away fans, sector E, to the Scottish Football Association (SFA). Until now, the SFA had sold 1,100 tickets.
During preliminary discussions, the MLSZ did offer to make available more tickets for away supporters arriving in Budapest, but the SFA did not take up the offer and indeed rather asked the MLSZ in writing to refrain from selling the remaining tickets for sector E because the SFA would not accept responsibility for those supporters arriving in Budapest without tickets.
On the basis of the above, the Hungarian Football Federation (MLSZ) is not selling any additional match tickets to Scotland supporters in any of the sectors which remain under its authority.
