Venues announced for EURO U17 Elite Round in March

Cappielow Park, the Dumbarton Football Stadium and the Paisley 2021 Stadium will host Group 4 in the 2017 UEFA European Under-17 Championship Elite Round as Scotland bid to qualify for the finals for the fourth season in a row with FREE entry for all.

Scotland will take on Montenegro, Serbia and Switzerland between 17-22 March in an attempt to qualify for this year’s finals in Croatia.

The group is one of eight mini-tournaments being played around Europe with the winners qualifying for this year’s finals in Croatia.

The seven best runners-up will also progress to the final tournament which takes place in May.

This season’s finals take on added significance as they act as a qualifying round for the 2017 FIFA Under-17 World Cup to be held in India in October.

Scotland will take on Montenegro at Cappielow Park in their opening elite round match on Friday, 17 March, before facing Serbia at the Paisley 2021 Stadium two days later.

They return to Paisley on Wednesday, 22 March where they will finish off their finals bid with a match against Switzerland.

Scotland defeated Malta, Wales and reigning under-17 champions Portugal to qualify for the elite round back in September, earning a place as one of the top seeds and ranked sixth best in Europe based performances over the last three seasons.

Entry to all matches is FREE* (gates open one hour prior to kick-off).
