Scotland fans furious as Euro 2024 bookings CANCELLED ‘without warning’

FURIOUS Scotland fans have hit out after a popular pub cancelled their Euro 2024 bookings “without warning”.

The Hall on Sauchiehall Street left punters devastated as it closed its doors for good.

The Hall was popular haunt for students and sports fans

The venue cancelled customer bookings for Scotland‘s opening match against Germany on Friday.

We previously reported how the bar ceased trading earlier this month after 20 years serving punters.

The popular sports and student bar featured large projector screens, pool tables and live music sessions.

A customer told Glasgow Live:”I booked it at the end of April because I knew the Euros would fill up quite fast. It was always busy when I was there.

“We were excited to watch the Euros at the pub and now don’t have anywhere to go as it’s a bit late to find somewhere else as it’ll probably be booked 

“There was no warning or indication that they’ll be shutting and a lot of customers are saddened by it.

“I go there quite often so it’s a real shame, it’s my go-to place for sports so I am quite gutted. It’s sad to see it go.”

Staff working at The Hall will be relocated to other venues owned by Stonegate in the city centre.

A spokesperson said: “After many years as a staple on Glasgow’s Sauchiehall Street, The Hall has now closed its doors.

“The Stonegate Group, which operates two other pubs in the city with similar offerings, is working to relocate The Hall’s team members to nearby Stonegate venues.

“Additionally, we are assisting guests with upcoming bookings in transferring their reservations to alternative Stonegate locations.

Why are shops closing stores?

“The Hall’s general manager and team extend their heartfelt thanks to the local Glasgow community for their support over the years.”

It comes as Scotland’s hospitality and retail sectors continue to struggle with both businesses and punters feeling the squeeze from rising costs.

The industry was hammered by closures during the Covid-19 pandemic and was immediately dealt another blow by supply issues and the cost of living crisis.

Popular pub chain Whitbread is set to axe over 200 locations in a major shake-up for the firm.
