Got our tickets for the four Scotland home games including the play off. The missus said she wanted to start going with us so it made sense to pay the joining fee of assure her of a playoff ticket. Looking forward to this Hampden will be jumping.

Ukraine game possibly being moved to June

I think under the circumstances, perfectly acceptable assuming in June they have peace in their country

That would cause all sorts of problems for the fixtures for the final play off games, currently scheduled for 5 days later on March 29th?

There's all sorts of chaos with Poland refusing to play Russia, so, at  this point it's all up in the air, with more important things going on in Ukraine TBH.

Agreed , just seen it reported they’re looking to use what was Nations League ;,June 2-14 for these outstanding fixtures

Ukraine definitely and rightly have worldwide support

Ukraine match postponed till June

Inevitable really. FIFA in a no win situation. Agree to the postponement and create an almighty fixture headache, or deny it and receive widespread condemnation.

The only downside it if we're being honest, is Ukraine probably aren't any more likely to fulfil the fixture in June as they are now. Might have been better just fielding a non Ukraine based team and get in done. 

To be honest I'm a bit surprised that they are even arsed about this game at all.

So, a friendly against Poland, bit surprised the Wales v Austria game is the same night, thought they'd have played the same date when we, eventually, play Ukraine.

Scotland will play Poland in a friendly instead of their postponed World Cup play-off semi-final against Ukraine.

The game will be played at Hampden on 24 March, the date of the original tie, with £10 from each ticket sold going to Unicef's response in Ukraine.

Poland had been scheduled to play Russia that evening, but have been given a bye into a final with Czech Republic or Sweden on 29 March.

Russia have been removed from the qualification process.

"As a father, the images of children in Ukraine has been heart-breaking to watch," said Scotland captain Andy Robertson, who is also a Unicef ambassador.

"We send our love and prayers to our fellow participants across Ukraine's football community and hope that the money raised by this match will help the tremendous efforts already made by UNICEF in Ukraine and in helping the refugee situation."

Scotland and Ukraine hope to meet in June, with the winners going on to face either Wales or Austria, who meet in Cardiff on 24 March.

Steve Clarke, who is set to name his squad for the forthcoming international break on Tuesday, will then take his side to play another friendly away to the losers of that match on 29 March.
