I'm quite amazed how someone at UEFA thought this all through.   Other than confusion (and still low crowds in our case) I don't thing we've managed to find a major flaw in the system itself.

I'll withdraw that. The 3 days between the play-off semis and the final is nuts.

Pay at the gate for the final.

:lol:

So we could end up with Scotland v Serbia in Finland at 3 days notice....

:shocked:

They announce the venue 3 months before, but is drawn, so could be any of the 4 competing countries, is that right?

Don't think so, but it's still far from ideal.

'Regulation 17.04: For each play off final, a draw is conducted in advance to determine which semi-final winner will play at home'

So, we have a 50/50 chance of the final being at Hampden if we win the semi. However, if the other semi get the luck of the draw we wont know whether we will be going to Oslo or Belgrade until 3 days before!?

You’d be better knowing where it was, even if it ended up neutral, could end up with no fans there or 1000 fans gambling on booking Serbia for a game in Oslo or vice versa.

Exactly. Would be even better if a draw was made to decide a single host for both semis and the final - less travelling all round.
