TICKET PICK-UP IN ALBANIA

Recommended Posts

Assuming there is going to be 100% pick up, has it been announced yet and what, if this is the case, are the details. I haven't seen anything yet!!

it was announced weeks ago. The pick up points have not been announced yet tho. I would guess it will be the same as Israel. Pickup in Tirana and one at the game.

No mention of needing passport to get into ground as had been suggested so I assume that will not be necessary?

Pick up options seem fair enough, allowing plenty time for folk to get them, went smoothly enough in Israel so hopefully same here, never an issue for me to pick up.

Not so sure.

We'll see!!!! :oops:

In Israel it was only the lead named booker who had to collect for everyone in their group and also there were less tickets sold. 

2,100 tickets sold for this one so even if everyone only takes 45 seconds each on average to collect that equates to 1 person having to give out tickets non stop for over 26 hours.

Think we all might  need a bit of patience.

Can see Friday especially being a bit chaotic with the late start time.

So assuming all the SFA staff are on the same flight that will mean the team are arriving at the last minute again. Its hardly the ideal preparation for what the assistant manager has quite rightly described as a must win game

Not so good if you are staying in Shkoder like me.

I hate waiting too close to kick off time and would much rather collect it earlier.

It cant be helped though if the SFA staff are based in Tirana

Ditto. I guess similar to Israel that there was more pick up flexibility in Tel Aviv ebing that's where everyone gravitates to.

On the plus side the stadium at Shkoder actually seems like it can't be more than a 15minute walk from the centre so should be handy enough to get down there.

Assuming the staff are in the hotel anyway...Why not earlier on the Saturday, the majority of punters will be heading at that window. Re Haifa, SFA staff were an hour late getting there, nobody had a clue where the tickets were to be uplifted Israelis or SFA security that turned up,  and their was nothing to do for an hour. We had nipped out to stadium, get ticket then back to town for a few. Lead booker picking up, worked well in Israel, reducing numbers. They should take our views on board.    Ps    I have my home end ticket sitting on the fireplace. that took 2mins to print off.

Same for me - that irritates me (I'm being polite)  - two pick up times no where near where the game is actually being played and only one right before the match in the town where the game is being played !!!! OK I know loads are flying to Tirana but there's also a fair few flying in to Podgorica and surely there'll also be a good crowd wanting the be in Shkoder the day before the match.

I try not to have a go at them (that's too easy and it's not the people on the ground's fault) but could it be that the SFA weren't as clued up as the supporters and had Tirana arrangements and hotels booked up before the actual venue was announced ???? Nah, surely not !?

The vast majority of fans are staying in Tirana, as Davy has 26 buses running from there, so most, if not all of these could pick up in Tirana. There will be other folk staying in Tirana and making other arrangements to get to Shkoder, meaning only at a maximum of 800 or so will need to pick up on the day at the match.

That pick-up in Shkoder will be fun. A lot of guys itching to get in the ground before kick off who have decided to leave it to getting to Shkoder will be interesting.

Look at FCO travel advice for Albania. Embassy in Tirana has specific advice for this game. It says no admission without passport/ID.

Presume a driving licence would be fine?
