Children and young people will have the chance to see Olympics football matches in Glasgow free after 50,000 tickets for the London 2012 Games were made available.
The tickets will be on offer through the Ticketshare scheme for the eight men's and women's football matches to be played at Hampden Park.
Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced the Ticketshare scheme allocation from the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
She was joined at Hampden Park by American and French supporters, as well as local schoolchildren and two of the teams taking part in the men's and women's games being staged in Glasgow.
The tickets, which will be made available through children's sports clubs and charities, are funded from the sales of hospitality packages as a way of encouraging participation in sport and to provide access to the Olympic Games in Glasgow this summer.
Ms Sturgeon said: "This is an exceptional opportunity for children and young people in Scotland to be part of the whole Olympic experience and to encourage their participation in sport.
"Having the Olympic football tournaments in Scotland is an exciting chance to truly get into the spirit of the Games.
"I would urge everyone who can to come along. I hope to see a great turnout from across the country."
Ms Sturgeon also pointed out that Glasgow has other attractions to mark its inclusion in the Olympics.
She added: "Away from Hampden, Glasgow's Merchant City Festival will include a '2012 Experience' on matchdays and entertainment will also feature at stations and on the streets around the stadium.
"These matches will have a unique Olympics atmosphere and provide the ideal family day out, with world-class matches, including Spain, the World Cup holders and Euro 2012 champions.
"It's a fantastic chance to promote Scotland to a global audience; every country playing at Hampden will be made to feel enormously welcome."
Tickets had previously been made available to Scottish schools participating in the Get Set initiative through the Ticketshare scheme.
Tickets are still available for sale for all matches.
