There could be an argument to allow vaccinated fans into games.

Is there any country that are actually listening to them now? They predicted the vaccine would take 18 months to start with. It took less than a year. They overestimate every single thing, things will move on once rates drop the pressure is being put in the government by IRFU for 6 nations in February already and Gaa are too

No away fans will be allowed in March. However, we will still see 20,000 Irish going to Cheltenham.

Good point regarding IFRU and GAA. At least the league and 6 Nations start first so if the lobbyist rugby and GAA heads convince government to let fans in then it should apply to soccer  (who i imagine have less sway with government)

Didn't  realise we had Mystic Meg on here and if they said it would be less than a year and it wasn't you'd be lashing them for that.

Are you mystic meg yourself for knowing what I would do? I said they overestimate which they have done and that was just an example. Is that ok?

How many Season ticket holders are there?

Did we ever receive a refund for that game we missed?

If not maybe Season ticket holders could be given first option

I think we got credit for that game against the next season ticket we purchase.

I doubt there will be any fans at the March games, not in the Aviva anyway. Vaccination won't start here until January and I'd be surprised if it would be completed before the summer.
 

The way the Irish are behaving we won’t get crowds back at games until 2030 for goodness sake. I’m not being smart when I say this I’d genuinely harbour as much hopes of getting to an away game in a spot like Portugal or Serbia as I would attending a game here in Ireland. 

They let 25,000 attend the Belgrade derby in June don’t mind next year.

How do you know they overestimated  ? Nobody knew exactly how long it would actually take but good lad you criticise them for it  and say that's why people aren't listening to them.

I expect there to be home fans allowed in for the games in March, likely ST holders only which makes sense.
There are more people than ST holders who have pre paid for matches. Not just as simple as ST only.

What do you mean by pre paid?

It means to pay in advance. When you buy a season ticket you either pay for it in full or by instalments. Either way you are paying in advance for your seat that games. Club Ireland is another scheme whereby people have paid in advance for their seats. Outside of this you also have sponsors for example, where a certain number of tickets/seats are included with their sponsorship agreemenet. And lets not also forget others who have an entitlement and i include JDs shady fundraising deals in that. 

End of the day though, unfortunately it is just not as simple as let ST holders only in when capacity is restricted.

You can forget about March.

The later games depend if and how many vaccines the EU approve.

If they approve 2/3 in Jan-March then there will be a race amongst the companies to produce and distribute as quickly as possible to the paying governments/public.

The more vaccines available the quicker the general public get them and we can get back to normal.

Ideally you get some kind of certificate that shows you got the vaccine that helps with travel etc

Is anyone going to take a chance on booking Azerbaijan for October 2021? Very tempted but god only knows if we will be allowed to travel. So just wondering if it's worth taking the chance?

Which stadium in Portugal do you reckon we'll be in? Do they play all their matches in the same one?
