    ...easiest all round and a wonderful city. The issue is that Rapid are a traditional old team like us and will sell their tickets. How small will our allocation be? I'm tempted but just can't see lots of home tickets on sale etc. What do we reckon?

    That's why I think a German team would have been the best away trip. Bigger stadiums with the best chance of a higher allocation. Shame central European countries don't have crappy home support like some southern and eastern European countries.

    Of the 3 its easily the best trip.

    Shame tickets will be like gold dust for it and Villareal. Not that i would be going to either mind you.

    Rapid had an average home attendance of 19,100 last season, and have a stadium which holds 28,000.

    Suppose it depends on the qualification situation for both teams as it is the last game.

    Could be a meaningless fixture.

    Hopefully not.

    Moscow is the pick for me.

    Always wanted to visit as a city and now have the perfect excuse.

    Will be going into the home end, hopefully safely I’m sure with hundreds of other bears.

    I was in Moscow and st Petersburg in March for 5 days each.... honestly one of the best places I've ever visited. Bust a gut to get there mate you won't be disappointed.
    I'm off to new York for a week in 3 weeks time so won't be able to afford Moscow again for the game.... pretty gutted tbh.

    it's 24k for euro games, safe standing removed

    if you want to guarantee a ticket, you can become a Rapid member for EUR100 for the season , that guarantees you first refusal on all tickets before a public sale.

    Looking forward to the trip. Short drive for me, (subject to snow in the Alps!). Vienna well worth the visit especially as Christmas markets likely to be in full working mode.

    As it will be last group game, we will know if either them or us are in contention to qualify for knockouts. If they struggling or out then might make it easier for Bears to get tickets.
    On the other hand if it is a decider, will be very difficult.

    Hopefully for travelling bears Vienna have no chance and are playing shite by the time we get them and the locals sell on there tickets.

    I’m in the exact same position mate apart from Moscow. Sitting on 4 points and hoping that will be enough to get a ticket a ticket for Villarreal and Vienna but not 100% sure if 4 will be enough. Hopefully we will get a little bit more than the 5% allocation we are entitled to, apparently the Rapid Vienna away section holds 1800, we are only entitled to about 1200 so it would be slight improvement.

    Went there when I stayed in Vienna before the Maribor game.

    Speaking to a bear in there who said the prices were normal in the early afternoon & they hiked them up when more bears arrived. When I got there it was 12 euro a vodka and tiny wee measures. :eek: Shall avoid this time round.

    Should be fine with 4 mate, I’m confident for getting tickets for all 3 of the games to be honest.

    I’m not sure mate to be honest. I started a thread asking the question about the breakdown of members and how many points they have. The poster Boumsong used to post a lot of info about stuff like that, I don’t think he posts anymore though.

    Spoke to them on the Thursday of the Maribor game and the Vienna guys said they'd maybe look into shutting down the street next to the pub if we got Rapid in the groups. Saves the polis coming out but clearly the pub owner is there to only make money. Unfortunate. I speak a bit of German but got given different prices for the same thing depending on who was serving me.

    Just heard my RSC is planning a coach trip to Vienna.

    All I can say is Oh Dear, considering it coincides with a landmark birthday for me.
