    UEFA site has ko down for 21:30 local time, so all the fears about the heat in June have been unfounded. Warm but not oppressive.

    We may have got accommodated on the ko time, but not the ticket prices. Our fans are being charged from 250 up to 1,000 times the cost of home fan tickets.

    Yes, that is "face value".

    If its 20 EUR for the ticket, I dont see a major problem. Cost of living and average household income will be far lower in Macedonia than it is in Ireland or Britain and you are still getting your ticket for less than half the price of one at the Aviva.

    EDIT: but you are saying 1000 times? What cost are those tickets then?

    Theirs is less than what our fans paid for the Bulgarian tickets 2 years ago. Of course the cost of living is much less over there, but no way should our fans be charged the amount quoted.

    Just to put our fans ticket charge in perspective, they're less than half what is paid in Lansdowne for friendlies, and more than what they cost in Slovakia.

    Any reason why you are not just stating what the cost is?

    Aye, check out YBIG. They'll probably be selling away tickets on the day, but just watch with regards to them

    The Scots were there a few years ago, we sold tickets (albeit of the home end) and where then turned away.
    Have you ever won the treble?

    I'm sick of the ticket office. I applied for tickets months back when I first booked Macedonia. Never received an application form. Emailed them on Friday - no response. Will ring them tomorrow. I'll be pretty peeved if there's no tickets to be had.
    Here they come! It’s the charge of the “Thanks” Brigade!

    Match is at 2130 CET.

    The Macedonians have provided a map for the day of match. I assume we'll be escorted to the ground from Macedonia Square (btw, the map is wrong way round, south is up and north is down.

    Have you ever won the treble?
