Almost 700,000 Peru Fans Have Applied For Tickets For Scotland Match

Scotland are set to play Peru in May in a white-hot atmosphere after an incredible 700,000 fans applied for tickets to watch the international friendly.

Alex McLeish’s men will travel to South America for exhibition matches in Lima, and against Mexico, with both countries using the clash as a warm-up for the World Cup.

The Peruvians are heading to their first World Cup for 36 years, and are currently unbeaten in an impressive 12 matches and the Peru supporters are very keen to give their heroes a proper send-off before they head to Russia.

The Scotland friendly will be their last home match before they take on Denmark in their World Cup opener, and according the Sun, 700,000 people have applied for tickets for the clash in the Estadio Nacional del Peru, which holds just 50,000.

Tickets will be dished out via a ballot system but it certainly looks like a lot of fans will be left disappointed.
