Tartan Army to be asked not to gather in Trafalgar Square

The English FA will be asking Scotland fans not to congregate in Trafalgar Square on the day of the England v Scotland World Cup qualifier. However, they do have a good reason.

Typically, the Tartan Army would be expected to take meet en mass in Trafalgar Square. As much as the authorities would complain, it would be a fun and harmless affair. However, a clash with Remembrance Day commemorations means that the square will be unavailable to gathering fans.

The Royal British Legion has asked that football fans do not meet or celebrate in the square. However, like other members of the public, Scotland fans will be welcome to attend remembrance events and pay their respects to the war dead.

No doubt the Tartan Army will be able to make alternative plans. And every Scotland fan is an ambassador for Scotland, so we expect no trouble.
