 Ok Baldie , so question have you booked any flights football related or not ?
 
 


Nah. Have my eye on Portugal and Luxembourg.  Maybe the former as a family holiday and the latter on my own. 
Too be honest i did think come March we could see a light at the end of the tunnel , now not sure about that i still think it would be best to leave it as long as possible before booking anything . Now easy to say now but i have loads of holidays carried over at work and just wanting to book something .

As for NR i see your point but as always it's a gamble as i think these flights will fly now will we be be able to see a game inside the stadiums is another question .

to be fair lads if we could be assured of proper day out in Dublin pints and all that would do me at this stage and I think September is our earliest opportunity of this.

Yeah think home games against Azerbaijan and Serbia likely to be the first games to see significant numbers back at games

Even with the vaccine roll out, I take it that Belgrade is still completely out of the question in March. 

Would it be UEFA or the Serbian FA would announce in the next month or so there'll be no supporters permitted to attend? 

I'm still booking that week off in work and living on false hope that there maybe a 1% chance we'll be able to attend LOL

I would consider myself an optimist, I don’t know how I would describe thinking there will be away fans at a match in 10 weeks time!! Even thinking it was 1% possible. I’d even say Lisbon in September is a risk.

I'd be confident we will make the Luxembourg game in Nov, two EU countries so surely restrictions will be relaxed by then. 

Cant see us being in Portugal in early Sept as I think it will just come too soon or Azerbaijan in Oct as they're non-EU and might be lagging behind us on the vaccinations

Don't tread on my delusional wishes lads LOL

Even though we couldn't attend any of the Nations League or playoff games last year, I'm glad I still took the annual leave for those dates. I'm sure most of the regular away heads on here might've cancelled their annual leave for the week/days of the away match but I'd recommend still taking the time off even if you can't travel.

I’m not joking when I say there’s a better chance of ye getting to Portugal or Luxembourg this autumn/winter then seeing Ireland play here. 

The way we are so cautious/slow with the vaccine we won’t see games until 2030 for gods sake. 👀

P.S feels good to finally post after years of lurking.

I’d say hold off booking flights to Baku at the minute but there will be no worries about tickets in a 60k plus stadium you will be grand as we are guaranteed 3k tickets. Hopefully things will be ok by next October to travel. The conflict seems to have settled down so fingers crossed all will be grand. I’d say most agree that Tbilisi has been the best trip of the last few games and Baku is certainly the trip that most are looking forward to already. No harm booking accommodation if you want to but make sure it’s free cancellation. Have a 7 bedroom apartment booked myself for only €270 for two nights.
Just been reading through this thread, are you sure it’s going to be in the Olympic stadium, I remember they played Wales in a much smaller stadium (about 9000 capacity) Welsh away end was a sell out.

No there’s nothing confirmed yet for it anyway. To be honest I didn’t even know about the smaller stadium all I seen online was the main one. Bakcell arena is the smaller one that holds 11,000.

They play a lot of games at Quarabags home ground, pretty sure it was (is) named after the dodgy linesman from the 1966 world cup who awarded the goal to England that wasn't over the line.

Even so, Azerbaijan is never going to present ticket problems imo, those who travel will get one.

I think that was due to work being done on the Olympic stadium  after the European games. Similarly to why Scotland used parkhead and ibrox for games instead of hampden

Does anyone else know anything about this? Have booked flights for Baku (with insurance to get most of the cost back if I choose to cancel). Didn't consider that they played recent matches away from their Olympic Stadium.
