The club’s international stature will be further enhanced during this summer’s Euros when Scotland make Rockliffe their base for the competition.

The Scots will be following in the footsteps of England by basing themselves in the region with Gareth Southgate’s side playing their Euro 2020 warm-up matches at the Riverside Stadium in early June.

England face fellow finalists Austria on Wednesday June 2 (8pm) before taking on Romania on Sunday June 6 (5pm) for their pre-tournament fixtures.

Scotland play their two warm-up matches away from home before returning to Rockliffe where they will be based throughout the tournament.

Scotland are at Hampden Park for the Group D matches against the Czech Republic on Monday June 14 (2pm) and Croatia on Tuesday June 22 (8pm). They also face England at Wembley on Friday June 18 (8pm).

Scotland Head Coach Steve Clarke has taken a close at the facilities on offer at Rockliffe and he said: “The most important aspect for me is that we give the players the best possible conditions to perform at EURO 2020: that includes the best possible training facilities available and making sure that travel plans are as efficient as they can be for the matches.

“Rockliffe Park enables us to achieve all of that while also allowing the players to focus completely on doing the best they can without any distractions.”
