I look forward to the FAI statement today keeping independent fans as updated as the supports clubs.
Does anybody know what time this FAI statement is being released at ?

Hi Gary, CRISSC were informed that the venue for the game will be announced by Wednesday.

Any word on when this information will be shared with independent fans ?

There has been NO announcement of venue despite Londondub poorly worded post
 
the venue will be confirmed 'at the end of this week or early next week at the latest'

Just imagine if the game was to be announced for Faro...at the same time that Declan Rice was to declare for England.

Didn't this forum collapse the day the FAI allocation for Euro 16 began?

Ah yes, I remember that as well...as the dejection on finding no pending charge on my credit card that day.  Cry  Thankfully, I got sorted afterwards.
 
That was just one event happening at a time though (as were the Yacht Club and Jack Grealish incidents mentioned above)...Nuke

Obviously like most on here hoping it is in Gibraltar.  With hindsight booking Seville would have been a smarter move.  I see some did that.  

I've decided to drive from Malaga if in Faro.  I couldn't justify the cost of new flights.  Thankfully my hotel was booked on free cancellation.  

The one positive if moved is that it will reduce the chances of a slip up.  I would expect Gibraltar to lose all eight games either way but their chances of pulling off a shock result are greatly reduced in Faro.     
I'd still love to know but at least won't need to scramble for flights etc on Wednesday.

Same as, will be sticking with the Malaga flights, don't see the need to try and re-book. I'm on the early Fri and late Sunday flights so a 4 hr trip each way will still leave plenty of time in Faro. It was always going to be 1.5 hrs to Gibraltar anyway

At least two of us will be doing the same if moved. What flight are you on, Gary?

If it is in Faro, we will be driving. It is too tough to justify the cost of new flights. The total cost of car hire, petrol, insurance and tolls per person should be well under €100. New flights will definitely be well in excess of that.

Plus a relative of the lad I'm going with has a place in Fuengirola. Our plan was always to stay there and drive to Gib and back on the matchday. If it is in Faro, I reckon we'll have to stay Saturday night in Faro rather than driving back. I think the plan will be to drive up about 10am, have a few beers pre-match, spend the night, then drive back to Fuengirola on Sunday. We're not flying back to Dublin til Monday, which is handy enough. If we were to book Faro, we would obviously have increased accommodation costs too, which makes a difference for us, but might not for others.

Just a word of warning for anyone who is driving: you need to register for the road tolls when you cross the border into Portugal from Spain, on the main motorway (A22 in Portugal). As you cross the border, there is a little booth to pull in at about 2km into Portugal (it is well signposted). Pull in there, and put your credit card into the machine. It automatically links the number plate of the car to the credit card, and deducts road tolls in Portugal from your credit card. The registration is valid for thirty days, however, so make sure you cancel it afterwards, once you have returned to Spain, to stop the next person who rents the car running up tolls at your expense. The tolls from the border to Faro are cheap enough (only a couple of euro). The machine will give you a ticket with your toll identifier; make sure you keep a record of that (maybe take a picture on your phone, in case you lose the receipt). Then, when you leave Portugal, just visit www.portugaltolls.com, and at the bottom of the main page, there is a place to cancel your account. All you will need is the registration of the car and the toll identifier. It is quite simple, really.

One other word of warning on car hire, especially from Malaga: a lot of the rental companies limit the number of km you are allowed to do, to 60km a day in some cases. It is an 800km round trip from Malaga to Faro, so make sure you account for that. There's no point going with some cheap car rental for a tenner a day for three days with only 60km a day allowed and 20c per extra kilometre (620km = €124 extra, €154 total), if you can get unlimited mileage for thirty euro a day (€90 total). The charge per extra km on those contracts tends to be quite steep. Also, a lot of the cheapest rental companies have absolutely shocking reviews on trustpilot. In particular, I've seen awful reviews for firefly, who basically rob you, and are impossible to get anything back from.

If you're not arsed with all the faffing around that entails, however, go off at the first junction and take the old road to Faro. That might be handier, even if it does take half an hour longer.

I think you can even get away with staying on until junction 17, which is a couple of junctions down. The first toll point is between junctions 17 and 16. They are all electronic, based on number plate recognition, so you might not notice them.
