Norway Game A Week Earlier

The originally agreed date for the Norway v Scotland qualifying match was 19th August, 2009.
However, at UEFA’s request to FIFA, this date was changed to 12th August due to Champions League scheduling, despite repeated attempts by the Scottish FA to change the date of the match - preferably to October (after the SPL season has started) FIFA has ruled, after consultation with the Norwegians, that the game will go ahead on August 12.

Scottish FA Chief Executive, Gordon Smith said “We’re disappointed with the decision, but at least now the date has been clarified, Scotland supporters can finally make their travel arrangements.”
