Women’s game between Scotland and Israel will be behind closed doors due to “risk of disruption”

The game between Scotland and Israel, in Glasgow, on May 31st, valid for the 2025 Women’s Euro Cup qualifiers, will be played without an audience due to the “risk of disturbance”. The announcement was made by the Scottish Football Association (SFA) this Tuesday, with the war between Israel and Hamas as a backdrop.

The decision to play at Hampden Park was made after “extensive security consultations with all parties involved”, the SFA said in a statement.

“The team responsible for operating the stadium was informed about the risks of disrupting the game and, as a result, we were left with no other option than to play the game without fans,” added the federation.

The Hamas attack on Israeli territory on October 7 last year caused the death of more than 1,700 people, most of them civilians, and was followed by an armed offensive by Israel in the Gaza Strip that left 35,647 people dead, the majority of them civilians. according to the latest report communicated this Tuesday by the Ministry of Health of the government of the Palestinian territory, led by Hamas.
