Scotland’s countdown to Euro 2024 begins in the capital this week as the Tartan Army make the trip to Amsterdam to take on the Netherlands.

The match is the first of four friendlies that Steve Clarke’s side will play between now and the Euro opener against host nation Germany in less than three months time. Friday’s game against Ronald Koeman’s side may only be a friendly in nature, but it is likely to be played at high intensity with squad places for the Euros still up for grabs.

The international friendly will also offer an insight into just how far the Scotland team has come since their Euro 2020 warm-up game against the Dutch three years ago, and offers the perfect setting for fans to see how Clarke’s team will cope against a nation ranked within the top 10 of the FIFA World Rankings.

Ahead of kick-off we take a look at the key TV details for Netherlands vs Scotland and how fans can keep up to date with all of the action.

When is Netherlands vs Scotland?

Scotland travel to the Netherlands on Friday 22 March 2024 and the game is scheduled to kick-off at 7.45pm UK time. The international friendly will be played at the Johan Cruyff Arena which holds a capacity of around 55,885. The stadium has also been the home of 36-time champions Ajax since 1996.
