Spectators going to the opening day of the match, taking place on Friday, September 13, on the PGA Centenary Course at Gleneagles, are invited to wear their best tartan gear to get right behind the home side.

The news comes with the unveiling of the European team's outfit for the opening day of the match. Made by Swedish sportswear brand Abacus, the outfit features the official Solheim Cup tartan woven into at the request of Matthew.
