WORLD CUP QUALIFYING FIXTURES
Friday, 18 Jan 2008
Scotland supporters may be aware that FIFA have altered the dates that are available to Associations to play their qualifying matches for the 2010 World Cup. Previously the play off dates were scheduled for October 2009, meaning that all games had to be completed by then. This was the basis in which we negotiated our Group 9 fixtures late last year.
We have now been informed that the play offs have been scheduled for November 2009 - meaning that dates in October are now available as official match days.
We realise that many supporters will have already made plans to follow the National Team during the campaign and, as such, we have contacted the teams in our group to tell them that we do not wish to alter our schedule to make use of these extra dates.
Obviously, we have to get the agreement of the other National Associations in our group to this. Scotland supporters can be assured that we will do everything we can to make sure that we retain our agreed schedule and that our fans are not inconvenienced in any way by this change
