im travelling around europe (england,france,italy,switzerland,germany,scotland) in december and wanted to get into the local sporting spirit and see a football game. Any ideas on good games, cheap tickets, and not to crazy crazy fans???????
Thanks for any help,
Rangers v Celtic, 17th December
If you want a Premiership match in England, it's going to set you back a fair bit. Some clubs (e.g. Chelsea) disgustingly charge over £50 a ticket. All games involving the best clubs are usually always sold out too.
If you're not that bothered about the teams, Charlton, Fulham, Blackburn + Bolton usually have a few empty seats, so you'll easily get tickets there. I'd definitely get onto google though, find the clubs home page + book tickets for games in advance (you can pick them up at the ground). This will give you more say in who you get to watch, so even if you end up at a crappy team like Wigan or Bolton, you could watch them against Man Utd or Arsenal.
Any more questions, then give me a shout. If you can give me more specifics as to what you're looking for, price range, etc., I'll be more than happy to do a bit of research for you + help you find a decent game to go to....
ive planned my trip around seeing football, obsessed nooooooo hehe just a little bit.
From what i know Italy is easy to get tix to, France is pretty easy, and Germany can be hard depending what team (Bayern Munich have basically sold out all season).
I mean the A Leauge is good (Victory on top of course ) but European and South American soccer is the best there is.
Hope that helps
Come and watch the once mighty Nottingham Forest. In the bag of bob division we're in you can watch a "classic" football match based around the lump it as far as you can forward technique. Tickets are a snip at £22-25 (student £10). Forthcoming fixtures include a mouthwatering incounter with Brentord.
You know it makes sense!
what about rugby league in france ? Is that worth seeing
