iirc I saw somewhere the Swiss FA responded to a tweet to them saying they intended to announce the venue 4 months before the game.

Dublin-Frankfurt-Basel is a handy and cheap route.

Have a lovely apartment booked (Free cancellation) for Basel 13th-16th at a decent price so hopefully the match is played here.

Wouldn't say it was confirmed, it's just one source, FAI hadn't heard anything as of last night.

Personally wouldn't book anything based on that just yet.

Balls if it is Geneva, have booked Zurich which is only 1 hour train from Basel but nearly 3 from Geneva. 12 o'clock flight home the day after the game so will be an extra early start......
8,000 lower capacity in Geneva too.....

Geneva could put alot off traveling in terms of plans already made etc. It'll also make tickets more difficult for anyone who was planning it as a first away game, at a push we might get maybe 2k tickets i would guess

As has been said though there's only one source for this story and it doesn't appear to have been carried in any other worthwhile outlet so let's wait and see. It would be madness not to have it in Basel. Full house 38k

Just had a look at hotels in Geneva, they have notions about themselves, average about €400 for two midweek nights in October!!!

The article lays out criticism of the Swiss FA for not giving Geneva a big qualifier in recent years... instead they have only hosted diddy teams. The last time they played in Geneva was against Latvia in 2017.
 
As has been pointed out, there is only one source. I would hold fire until its officially confirmed. The Swiss FA website says in an article announcing Basel as the venue for the Denmark match in March that the other venues will be announced approx. 4 months in advance.

Only 90 odd mins away from Lyon as well if the accommodation there was too expensive

They've confirmed their home game v Denmark for Basel anyway. Would indicate our game won't be there if they are sharing the games around..

Yeah that's mentioned above but they also say no venue confirmed for the other games and they've played in Basel multiple times in a campaign. If it was confirmed I think you'd have more than 1 source which seems to be a small time outlet reporting it. Also seems to have a gripe with the Swiss FA.
Could see them playing Georgia and Gibraltar in different grounds but 2 games us and Denmark in Basel makes sense
