    Campaign Cards

    https://www.irishfa.com/tickets/campaign-cards Renewal for Campaign Cards will be open from April. Interesting that they are saying these are for the Euro 2020 qualifiers but presume these must also be for / include the Nations League. Can’t see how they can include the Euros given they don’t know the number of matches or who we will play yet?

    Post Mortem

    I think it’s the Euro 2020 qualifying that is confusing. You’d have to presume that most, if not all of the top tier will qualify through the qualifiers, so what happens then? If say 1 group A time don’t qualify then who do they play - it would hardly be fair to the Group B winners to play a team from a higher tier, rather than a team of a comparable standard

    UEFA considering international leagues

    Think I would have preferred one country to host all three matches, say the highest seeds. At least that way you would know in advance where you need to be!

    Squad v Bosnia (and Israel)

    BBC excelling themselves as usual - McLaughlin at Millwall (which is correct for Conor) but then C. McLaughlin at Oldham (if they mean Ryan, didn't he move to Blackool?) and Jonny Evans at West Brom

    He's in the squad posted on Facebook, as is McNair

    Central America tour

    Both Lafferty & McGinn have posted on Twitter about having a break now so I’m guessing they aren’t in the squad (unless it’s a very short break!)

    South Korea

    Still showing on Freesports schedule for Saturday, from 1:55. Sky Channel 424, also on Freeview (channel 95 I think). Freesports is a decent wee channel for random free football

    Squad v South Korea - new faces

    Other than Goss deciding if he wants to play for us, is there anything that needs sorted? He’s not ‘switching’ is he? Has he played for English underage teams?

    South Korea

    Totally agree. This seems to have been a change for this game. For the New Zealand game I was able to change one of my usual block booking tickets to a concession ticket in the Upper Deck of the North Stand by simply sending ticketmaster an email. Tried the same for this game and was told that I couldn't.

    South Korea

    I think that FreeSports is run by Premier Sports so could be on both

    South Korea

    Apparently the match is being shown on Freesports - or at least according to their schedule on their website https://www.freesports.tv/

    South Korea

    That would be fine if they gave us the option of moving elsewhere but I suspect that won't happen easily

    UEFA considering international leagues

    Just watched a video which is supposed to explain all this ... lets just say I am still a little confused around the whole Euro 2020 qualifying part of this! So the top four teams in each league who have not qualified go into a playoff to win a space each? Say there were only two League A teams who do not qualify through the normal qualifiers, does that mean that the two highest ranked league B teams are then in a play-off with the two League A teams? Hardly seems fair on the League B teams as I guess they will be the 'lower seeds' as opposed to being the 'higher seeds' if they were playing other Leagues B teams? And given that there are 20 qualifiers from Euro 2020, the likelihood is that most of the top two leagues will qualify and the 16 teams in the playoffs will be from League C / D. Or have I completely got the wrong end of the stick here!!! (BTW I appreciate this is probably all answered in the previous 18 pages of discussions ....)

    Grandstand tickets are more central (certainly in the North Stand). Basically just another rip off - we have had our seats since pretty much we started our Block Booking (1997? or so), give of take a row or two move with the refurb. Our block now happens to be in one of the 'Grandstand' sections so we have to pay more - not just for the tickets, but also for the fees!! We are seats 1-5 in our block so effectively our seats are a fiver more than the person seating over the steps from us. Only been applied to friendlies so far but I suspect we may be charged more when the next lot of Campaign Cards are on sale ....

    Hold on I'm a little confused! Isn't this all in addition to the Euro qualifiers so the small teams will still get to play the likes of Germany, Spain, France & Northern Ireland?
