Anyone know when we should expect to hear today? Be interesting to see if it is tiered (ie 6/7 pointers can buy first and works its way down) or if everyone can buy at once if the numbers are low enough. Was a good number registered from what I remember

Is there officially an announcement on this today or are you hoping there is one?

The longer it is the more I’m going to have to pay for a flight. On 2 points just now and didn’t want to chance it by booking the flights when they were £100.

If all fails I doubt there would be any hassle getting one in the home end as Porto's ground never looks full regardless of opposition

Similar position to yourself.

Lots of people will say "it's all about the trip and not the match" Well actually the match is the only reason I'd be going, watching us and being at the game is literally all the matters to me personally, seeing the city, having a drink etc is very much 2nd place.

Ive never heard anyone say its not about the match.

Chancing your luck isnt a terrible idea though as the build up in pubs and squares is really decent even if you are unlucky enough not to get a ticket, so yes not getting a ticket isnt a disaster.

Im only on 1 point and don’t think I’ll have a problem getting a ticket, it’s a big allocation and a lot of people are more interested in feyenoord.

You’d also get a ticket in home end no bother if worst came to worst.

When they open it up to purchase tickets I'd imagine it'll be for 2/3 points + above and will then trickle down over a few days to the lower points threshold if the uptake isn't as expected.

By the end I reckon everyone that wants a ticket will get one.

If there are no official flights going via TC then should be a plentiful supply of Indy tickets i imagine.

I think it will also depend if they are posting/collection in the UK or collection over there. There will be people who aren't going will buy just to secure point for Feyenoord. I'm on 2 points and going, but still confident as large allocation

Just going by anecdotes on here of previous trips to both Porto and Feyenoord, the former seemed much more enjoyable than the latter. Was a no-brainer for me to choose Porto over Feyenoord for my group stage trip.

Depends what you’re after right enough.

On 1 point and relatively confident of an away end ticket. Failing that, we’ll sort home end tickets and take the point for registering.

You going to Porto mate? Can’t remember if I asked you already.
Aye mate in and out in a day basically. Edinburgh-Lisbon Thursday morning glassy bus to game when we get back to Lisbon on the way back straight to the airport for a 6am flight back to Manchester then a train up the road.

I may have a flight available to Lisbon and a seat on Glaswegian bus to/from match 23-25 from Glasgow if anyone is interested

Theres about 3500 applied for 2500 tickets.
Some of course will have no intention of going but for people to suggest that around 1000 people will do this and everyone who wants a ticket will get 1, that's just nuts.

For the qualifiers the first round of offers seemed to go to 4 points and above so I'm expecting it to go as low as two or maybe even one point for this one if there is an initial allocation offer to gauge numbers.

Wish they'd do this sooner.

Equally, wish I'd booked my flight the second the fixtures were announced. £40!

Porto was much better trip.Take away any bother at the game Porto is much better city with friendlier people.Found Rotterdam a bit on the dodgy side even taking away anything to do with football.Saying that I'm doing the 2 of them again.

I'm flying out Tuesday night, Glasgow to Stansted, then Stansted to Oporto.

Way back on Friday, Oporto to Gatwick, then BA back to sunny Glasgow.

Fully expecting to have qualified by the time this game comes around :cool:

I think it stands to reason that a fair few number of those have registered independent after having registered for the day trip will naturally fall away if the club can’t organise an alternative day trip.

If I understand it correctly, they’ve been advised to do that as an interim course of action following the Tam Crook collapse

It will be a question of time/convenience element rather than money. If you can afford the surcharge they put on the day trip, you’re more likely to pay the inflated prices of flights.

Wednesday night, Edinburgh - Toulouse
Thursday morning, Toulouse - Porto
