I'm looking for the official attendances for the following away Scotland games;

11/11/2011 v Cyprus in Larnaca
26/05/2012 v USA in Jacksonville
14/11/2012 v Luxembourg in Luxembourg City
29/05/2016 v Italy in Malta

Thanks.

Many thanks, do you have a link to that page? It'll help in cross checking some others that I'm not too confident are accurate.

Here is the link:

Gabriele (“Gabe”) Tossani, who maintains the Scotland international record on the RSSSF website, posts on here from time to time usually to corroborate attendances, full names of players & stadia and goal times. It is a great resource.

Another question. When was the last time Scotland played in front of a home crowd of less than 20,000 for a WC or EC Qualifier? Late 90's during Hampden rebuild?

Yes, Pittodrie on October 14th 1988, a 2-1 (!) win over the Faroes. 18,517. The same week at Tynecastle, on the 10th, 16,930 watched a thrilling 3-2 win over Estonia. These were both Euro 2000 qualifiers (so we all know how that went.)

Interestingly, only 20,435 watched the 1-0 win over Slovenia in the WCQ of 26 March 2017, probably because the die was cast by the home draw with Lithuania and the 3-0 defeat in Trnava earlier in the campaign.

But now, fast forward to 2019 from your post, and we finally have a sub-20,000 game at Hampden again. Just 19,515 watched the 3-1 demolition of Kazakhstan last month. (And if you take the Nations League into account, our lowest there was 17,455 watching the 2-0 win over Albania.)
