Out of Shannon, back there via Heathrow.

I know it's a small island and all, but the stadium seems like it's in the middle of nowhere. For ones who've been there before, are there buses going to/from it?

Been next to it about 15 years ago, but not for a match. I'd imagine there are matchday busses out from Valetta but otherwise you're probably talking Dublin city centre to UCD sort of distance.

51/52/53 bus stops about 5-10 minutes walk away and takes about half an hour according to Google. I can recommend visiting Rabat/Mdina just up the hill from the stadium if you fancy a bit of culture and history.

The stadium is about 30 minutes away from St Jullians served by public buses. Quick spin in a taxi too. The stadium is near the city of Mdina which is definitely worth a stroll around for an hour.
time is the stuff that life is made of, don't waste it.

There is a very good bus service on the island. Mellieha to Valetta (the two extemes) is about 45 mins in rush hour so everything I'd completely accessible by bus. I was in Malta for 2 weeks a few years and rented a car one day, was completely unnecessary as everywhere was accessible by bus or taxi.

Thinking of doing the same, any recommendations on hotels etc?

Any update on the kick off time ?

Hi lads 

New to writing into the forum and looking to start getting the away games in now. Are tickets handy enough to get for these type of friendlies considering the stadium is only 3000. Will i at least  be able to get a home end ticket if i sort out travel etc before getting one.?

based on talking to people in Glasgow I'd say there will be nearer 500 than 100.

The gap between Sept and March will help popularity with this one. Although we could have 5 away qualifiers next year so I'm surprised of the interest myself.
