The first away match to be shown on the BBC will be from Belgium on 16 October.

Next year's fixtures in Serbia, on 26 March, Croatia on 7 June and Macedonia on 10 September will also be shown.

BBC Scotland head of sport Ewan Angus said: "Scotland's qualifying matches for the major tournaments always attract huge interest."

The European Group A qualifiers begin on 7 September, when Wales host Belgium and Macedonia travel to Croatia.

Scotland start their campaign at home to Serbia the following day, with Macedonia the visitors three days later.

Craig Levein's side then travel to Wales on 12 October, with the remaining away fixtures being broadcast live by BBC Scotland.

"It's great news for our audiences that we will be bringing full live coverage and in-depth analysis from each of these crucial games," added Angus.

"And we're delighted we can bring our viewers all the twists and turns from these big fixtures."
