Whichever stadium the Slovaks do use (Trnava according to Wikipedia atm), it'll be a very small one, and roughly half the capacity of Parken Stadium in Copenhagen. Meanwhile, lads are hearing about bandwagonners already booking travel... Disapprove

Game isn't for another 4 months but sure we might as well get the mass panic started now...

Both England and Wales got allocation of 2000 tickets for recent away games in Slovakia so would have to imagine we will probably get something similar

I just got an email from the FAI saying I have been successful and will get 2 tickets
Disregard the ice warnings and proceed full steam ahead. We are making great time. I want that trans Atlantic record! And turn off that bloody infernal Morse Code system!

So if we get 2k tickets as well then I presume that would be about 1,400 for the Fans Direct/supporters clubs since that allocation has gone up to a more respectable 70%?

Could still be tight for a lot of us.

Which hotel/airport bar did you bump into JD while absolutely buckled to get that one? LOL

You may make the most of it now that JD has gone. Wink

There'll be no disco train in Slovakia.

Hopefully but will of course still not match demand. Probably going to need a decent away record

Is it the last 10 competitive away games and season ticket which determines ticket distribution?

Gibraltar was season ticket & 6 of the last 9 and including friendlies, presuming the same criteria it'll be,

Switzerland, Georgia, Denmark, Denmark (NL), Poland (Friendly), Wales (NL), France (Friendly), Turkey (Friendly), Georgia (WC).

If it's tight I'd guess maybe 5 of those 9, but its a complete guess.

Probably fairest way to do it would be to base it off the current campaign minus Gibraltar

But Gibraltar was at a tiny stadium that only had a capacity of 2k for international matches.  How many did we have at that game - was it something like 900?
 
Hopefully, if we get at least 2k tickets for Trnava, those of us with patchy away records might have more of a chance?

900 and tickets and criteria was as above, we're only entitled to little over 1k for Slovakia if its in Trnava, hopefully we get 2k but if not it'll be tight

I'd be curious to see what kind of a following we have for this one. Despite it being the distance of Dublin to Drogheda away from Vienna, it will seem a lot further in the casual fan's mind as its an 'eastern' country. It's not the most glamorous opponent, no big Premier League names, likely to be in Trnava, not very many direct flights to Bratislava. These are all minor details - Trnava is only up the road and flying to vienna is essentially a direct flight, but this only holds when you put thought into it. I think casual fans could look at it and be turned off by that.

No doubt we will still bring a big following, but i'd expect a good bit less than the Denmark playoff in 2017 for example.

Hope you're right.  And hopefully the FD/SC allocation being brought up to 70% will help make a difference.  And hopefully the FAI are able to get at least 2k tickets (if not more). Thumbs Up
 
Suppose no-one knows at this stage when we can expect to hear from the FAI about how big an allocation we may get, btw?

Can anyone who is close to the FAI get a breakdown over this campaign on what the actual take-up of our away tickets was between Fans Direct/Supporters' Clubs and the Football Family?

I'd imagine the proportion from Fans Direct/SCs was higher than 70%. We should be pushing for this higher percentage to be applied for the play off as it will be a fair representation of what the actual split is

We were given 2300 for the WCQ v Denmark 2 years back with 7k applications according to the FAI. The requirement was 6 aways in the last two campaigns, so I wonder would it be much different this time or would the increased allocation for independent fans and SC make a difference?
