SCOTS firm McBookie.com are offering 3-1 that Scotland will host the 2020 European Championship.

The county are planning a joint bid with Wales and Ireland and at the moment Turkey are the only other bidders.

A 2016 bid was withdrawn due to the financial downturn and nothing much has changed so I don't know if I'l be diving in.

Paul Petrie, McBookie.com spokesman, said: “Things didn’t go well with the last bid so it seems strange to try and go for it again.

“However, the only other bidders, are Turkey and they seem to have their own problems. Sadly, this may the only chance we have of qualifying so hopefully we are paying out on this bet.”

    Hi Paul

    Seems very unlikely this would go ahead

    I’d be very surprised if Platini & Co would

    Allow three countries to automatically qualify as hosts

    Scotland , Wales & Ireland

    read in paper they are changing the format from 16 to 24 teams so it is possible. the other countries as far as i’m aware are turkey and georgia so it’s got a chance if bids accepted.

      Craig, it increases to 24 teams for the next finals in France. As far as I’m aware UEFA invited the bid involving the Scots and Welsh because at that point only Turkey were interested. It doesn’t mean the SFA and FAW will go ahead with it, depends on what it’s going to cost.
