 Gibraltar game may be in portugal as victoria stadium being renovated. Most of the games planned in the group so far will be in Faro.

Source ?

They've not begun renovations yet as far as I'm aware. Uefa gave them a dispensation for nations league and they may apply for it again.

However if they do begin construction the stadium is out of use for up to 2 years

I know this is not any sort of reliable source but I did get a message from my hotel in Gibraltar yesterday saying the game would not take place in Gibraltar. They must have known I was Irish from the name on the reservation. I presumed it was just them wanting me to cancel the booking and they will put the room back up at a higher price but maybe they have some local info.
just hit the fecking thing

Renovated? That's interesting term. How that kip got approval to hold games at that level is a joke. Worst 'stadium' I've ever been in, and I go to Irish League games.

They asked very nicely, and were granted it back in 2017.  UEFA said it wouldn't be allowed after 2020, but the gave another exemption because of COVID.

Makes sense that it might be moved.  They have given up on their alternative site stadium, and the Gibraltar FA bought Victoria Park this year instead.

Happy days, Faro suits me grand.

Won't book flights for a while. Plenty of options to get to Faro and most flight schedules aren't even confirmed yet bar Ryanair
