    When are we likely to know about tickets? Early January?

    Afaik, the away allocation can sometimes be reduced if there are segregation issues, or even if space is needed for TV and media? Anyhow, decent ground guide here which also includes this snippet: "The standard away ticket allocation appears to be between 660 and 700 – at least for the upcoming Euro 2016 qualifier against Wales." And we better hope it doesn't rain, or worse still, snow! (Also has a Trip Advisor page)

    5% of 15,600 (according to the link above) would be 780. I read the Welsh got 725 last time they played there

    Kolasinic, Bosnia and Arsenal FB, has injured his ankle and won't be back in full training until January: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50863964 Daresay he'll be ok for our game but still, along with a new manager due at the Emirates, every little bit of disruption helps. Might overdo the Christmas dinner now, too.

    Hardly a confirmation (UEFA and Wiki have been wrong before) but if it is then no reason why the IFA couldn't have already ordered applications and could quicky skim off and notify the top X hundred names but I'll be surprised if they have. Some people will be expecting tickets to be allocated and in accounts by the end of the day probably...

    The bar owner renovated his bar from top to bottom on the strength of those half pints.

    Yep. Strange little fanzone in Katowice to the stadium in Chorzow. I remember cars pulling up beside us on the motorway and dishing out all sorts of threats as we ambled along in the buses 😂

    After a half pint each that afternoon mate!!

    Yes. And in Belgrade our 250 strong horde got on buses with an armed police escort to a ground with no home supporters.

    Katowice Poland? Didn't we all have to get on the free buses from the fanzone to the ground for our own safety?

    Playoffs

    You can if tickets are only distributed once fans are on the bus. I’ve had to get a bus to watch Linfield play Cliftonville, Donegal Celtic and Dire City. Match tickets were distributed AFTER the buses left the meeting point.

    The IFA really are a shower of complete bastards. Imagine not taking tickets off BBers and giving them to away supporters. I'm sure none of us would object if we lost our ticket.

    I don't see why not. Surely there is a precident for it?

    Jeez, there's some right tripe being written here That's right, if we were to play ROI in the P/O Final in Belfast, we're refusing to give the FAI any more than their due entitlement of 5% of tickets (= 925) for away fans because of bigotry/old grievances/James McClean/ya-di-ya-di-ya. (The Breakaway Split in 1921 also got a mention ) FFS! Does the writer imagine that if we had been playing in Dublin, they'd have allocated us any more than our 5%? Still, it might backfire on us: "If the North prevail in their Euro 2020 play-off semi-final away to Bosnia, they will face the winner of Slovakia versus the Republic of Ireland in a one-off, winner-takes-all game in Belfast. If Michael O'Neill's beat the Boys in Green (they both play in green by the way, but the North are the Green and White Army) and qualify for the finals, they'll play two of their Euro 2020 finals games - against Poland and Sweden - at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin. Their fans will be relying on the goodwill of southern supporters to sell them match tickets they've already bought for the finals." That's right. If thousands of ROI fans should be stuck with unwanted, overpriced tickets for eg NI vs Sweden, oh no, they won't take our money, they'll keep their pride instead. Like Hell...

    Yep, a general sale should be avoided and with block bookers getting priority and then a sale to members there is no need for a general sale. theres regularly a wee group (30-40 seats) of away fans in the same seats in the South Stand near the pitch towards the Kop. IFA must give them to the away association. Assume that wouldn't be the case with the FAI. Anyone know the story why there's always away fans there?

    How did so many Hungary fans get in yon time though, unless some blockbookers got greedy?!
  25. Nigel82

    Playoffs

    In their defence they maybe have this in place already - by the time all the block bookers and members buy up their allocation then there will be very few tickets left for general release. I don’t remember any general sale for the Netherlands match so hopefully something similar here. Even if they have a load left they can give block bookers first option on any other tickets, which they have done before as well.

    Playoffs

    Nah, let Slovakia stuff them. Personally I never want to play them again, home away or neutral, it's just too much hassle. Anyhow, if we did have to play them, I'm sure we could cope with the away fans in whatever section they're allocated. But it's their fans getting tickets in our end, esp those from NI, which would worry me. Luckily, we can always trust the IFA ticketing department to have cast-iron procedures in place to ensure tickets only go to the people who should get them.
