While I know some people have booked Belgrade I feel this has the most realistic chance of our first competitive away game after the pandemic. While the game will probably be in Lisbon it is possible it maybe somewhere else. For those booking hotels with free cancellation what district in Lisbon are you booking.
While I acknowledge that Irish bars are expensive the area around Hennessy's near the harbour area seems like a decent spot, large open spaces and a square for those who want to kick footballs into balconies, but more importantly it's near pink street where there are a range of bars and clubs open untill dawn. Booked 262 Boutique Hotel myself.
Looking forward to a bit of Sun, Sea and Superbok now.

Porto, Lisbon and Faro have been used by Portugal in the past few years. Knowing us it'll be Madeira. Lisbon is a great city

Given the potential numbers of travelling Irish fans that will go to this match - assuming all is well and we are allowed to attend - it will be astonishing if this match is not in Lisbon.

€37 for flights out to Lisbon at the minute worth the gamble anyway even if the game is changed to Faro or somewhere else. Hopefully will be Lisbon as I’d imagine will be a big travelling support.

Yeah but Croatia were never going to bring large numbers of away support.  Unlikely that Portugal would face the likes of England, Germany, and indeed, us, outside of Lisbon.

They were both Nations League games though, weren't they? And we all know it's not been taken quite as seriously as a qualifying campaign. Considering how important this game is bound to be, I would be expecting to see this one being put on in Benfica's stadium in Lisbon.

Booked the Leaf Boutique Hotel myself which is further up near that big park (Parque Eduardo) . It's probably the same company that owns both hotels.

Lisbon is a cracking city, great nightlife. If the world is back to normal, will build the summer holidays around this. Down to the Algarve for a week or so, then tip up to Lisbon the Tuesday for the game on the Wednesday.

Even assuming away fans are allowed in September I doubt that will be their main consideration.  

They do move games around the country.  Denmark went to Braga in the 2016 qualifiers.  If we play in Lisbon then others in our group will play outside the capital.  All I am saying really is allow time to travel elsewhere if booking flights to Lisbon.  It is also best to book free cancellation as always on hotels.

Booking Lisbon for flights not a huge risk regardless of where we play IMO. Faro and Lisbon are the only places where there's regular flights to from here. Think Ryanair only fly to Porto once or twice a week. You won't be screwed for getting eleswhere in Portugal by flying to Lisbon

Thats where all the action was back in 2000 anyway and i dont recall it being dear, in fact there some great local bars down side streets that were very cheap though it is 20 years ago Ermm Have booked a hotel in that area anyway. Dont remember Pink St at all.

It's handy as there's no flights to Lisbon from Cork, I can fly to Faro and get the train up. Happy days.

Trying to organise a surprise 60th for the aul lad, had a look there flights seem fine free cancellation on hotel etc, been to most home games for the past 5or6 years but yet to make an away.
Considering just booking this week, sh*t happens and there's no away support allowed in are you all going to Lisbon anyway?

Probably too early for most to answer this. For the majority it will depend on the state of play with covid/restrictions etc. I and Most I know are holding off booking anything until things are much clearer. Bear in mind it may not be in Lisbon either.

I know of a few people who have booked this and will go whether the fans are allowed in or not.

I'm not booking anything myself until we get the all clear - which I doubt we will get.

Yep the same as you and Sham , just sitting on the fence until much closer to the time .

Don't mind paying twice as much as those who have already booked as long as we can be inside the ground .

Funny I have a inbound flight booked as you obviously need to get back to Dublin for the sat game - outbound will depend or whether it will be a 3 nighter or 7 nighter or something in between

Irish government still saying it is working towards having most people vaccinated by September and that becomes more likely which each new vaccine getting approved. I'd be hopeful that this would be the first away game back with fans though obviously nothing is certain in this pandemic.

Strange how UEFA haven't announced anything yet on attendances given the qualifiers start next month. 

You'd expect them to put out a statement confirming that there'd be no supporters permitted for the opening rounds in March and it would be subject to review in the next rounds in September.

Luxembourg will probably have finished vaccinating the entire population, the goats and the sheep before we have vaccinated all of the front line staff! LOL

+1 

I'd be happy just to be at the Portugal game in Lansdowne come November.

I am inclined to agree. However it would feel like a big let down/disappointment if the Poles, Swedes, Germans, Britts etc were touring around Europe in the summer, Sept/Oct, when we can't even get into Lansdowne Road.

I said this to someone earlier that there’s as much chance of getting into Portugal away game in September as there is of getting into Azerbaijan or Serbia at home in September.

The Irish government look to be following the English Govt regarding mandatory hotel quarantine centres if you arrive from a 'red flag' country - A £1750/2000 euro fee is required to stay in the hotel for 14 days otherwise you can get a £5000 fine and/or a 10 year jail sentence.

Portugal is a country listed on the red flag list and I can't see the stance changing anytime soon.

I think it's safe to say any trip to Portugal to a complete write-off unless you're willing to comply with the soon-to-be law. If there's any hope I can give it's that Azerbaijan is not on red flag list.

Yeah nobody knows what's going to happen but I'm not optimistic at the moment. Over 2 years without going to a game if this continues into 2022

optimism is a hard ask at the moment . The pressure from the media especially to open up early for Christmas and people letting their guard down was a disaster and unfortunately we will be very lucky to have a home holiday never mind foreign travel.

I assume Lisbon would have better facilities than other cities for managing bubbles and distancing so on that basis it's likely that games will be scheduled to take place there.

In the event fans can attend games you'd assume it'll be put in the biggest possible stadium to i). to cater for as many people attending as possible; ii). cater for social distancing within the stadium if only a partial attendance is allowed.

Your really hoping for a perfect storm of both countries (and likely the rest of Europe) meeting their vaccine targets in time and restrictions lifting. Bizzare that the FAI CEO thinks fans will be able to attend Euro 2020 games in Dublin in June when attending games in September look far from certain.

Lisbon had huge case numbers haven’t checked in the last fortnight. If people use cop on there’s a chance we could actually get to go in September.

They did but that peak has already passed and numbers are now down to around 1k cases per day.

If these vaccine passports do become a thing as well, we could indeed get to go. Clap

It must have been, because it's no longer available through that link. LOL

I do agree with VanBosch's post though, I think it's unlikely there'll be any international travel in mass numbers (for something like a match) for the rest of this year, unfortunately. 

Anyway, we live in hope!
