So now that most of us who went are either home or almost home, how did you travel to Seville and where from? There must be a few epic tales so would be interested to hear how we all got there.

I didn't have any delays or an epic distance to travel but i was up at 3am on Wednesday to get to Heathrow for the 6.20 flight to Madrid
Taxi from the airport to train station and then went to Seville via Cordoba and arrived at about 4pm, drop bag off at friends apartment then off to the game. D

Did the same journey in reverse after about 5 hours sleep and got home at 9 last night

Drive 3.5 hours from Glasgow to Liverpool, flight to Alicante.
Then a Drive 6 hours to Seville (stayed a few nights).

Did the journey in reverse next day after the game but flew back to Liverpool via Majorca, then the 3.5 hour drive back up to Glasgow.

All I could get at short notice when I got a ticket through UEFA!

Plenty Bears on this route too :)

First of all, a huge fucking well done to every single Bear who made the effort. Some of the routes were absolutely ridiculous and I hope to God that every single last Bear gets home safely.

We drove to Manchester then flew to Alicante. Drove to my mates place in Playa Flamenca. We got there and got to bed about 2am and got back up at 4.30am to set off for Seville on pretty much no sleep. 6 and a half hour drive to Seville, day in the sun, on to the game, then drove back to Playa Flamenca at about 7.30am - so it was a 27 hour shift on an hour or so of sleep the night before.

Back home now after a day chilling in Playa Flamenca yesterday, absolutely shattered but a brilliant experience.

And mine was one of the more straightforward routes

Oh it was fucking tough especially getting in this morning.

My mate drove to Gatwick then flight to Malaga, 2 n a half hour bus journey then to Seville.

On way home 2 hour taxi drive straight from stadium to Malaga airport, 4 hour wait in airport to get flight to Paris which we just made the connection on to Gatwick, then a quick sleep at marriot at Gatwick airport then my mate stupidly drove up the road at 18:30, we stopped 5 times and with all the roadworks and m6 shut at one point we got home at back of 3 this morning, absolutely shattered.

Believe it or not the boy who drove us up is now back on it in the town at a birthday party at st judes :)):))

Lucky living in London that I could just fly Luton - Malaga without worrying about any connecting flights or layovers etc.

Then travelled with the glassy buses from Malaga to Seville.

We only landed at Luton at 2.45am this morning and there were guys on that flight who were then having to get in the car and drive 6 and a bit hours up the road.

Our journey began Monday morning.

Houston - Newark - Lisbon - Faro.

Our flights from both Houston and Newark were delayed so we missed the train we had pre booked from Lisbon to Faro. We ended up ubering from Lisbon Airport to our Air BnB in Olhoa.

We travelled back from Faro to Lisbon on the 4pm train on Thursday afternoon and checked into the Star Inn hotel by Lisbon Airport for the night. Our flights home were;

Lisbon - Frankfurt - Houston.

Flight from Lisbon was 05:05 and was delayed which caused us to miss our connection to Houston. We were put on later flight which we’re currently still on and have about 2-1/2 hours to go.

My head is banging and I’m shattered but I would 100% do it all again. An unbelievable experience and it’s something I really want us to achieve and go one step better next time.

Well it’s still happening

Good journey to Seville. Drove to Bristol Airport on Tuesday, only 45 mins from home. Flew Bristol - Faro. Hire car to Seville, 2 hours, great drive.

Was supposed to fly back from Faro 22:20 last night. Plane delayed. Then cancelled at midnight. Easyjet eventually found us a hotel in Albufeira at about 2:30am. I’m still here and will be until Monday night, the first flight they can get me back to Bristol. As long as they keep paying for the hotel I’m good with this, it’s very nice actually.

I am currently on a solo holiday weekend by mistake :)) Will find a sports bar tomorrow to watch the cup final.

Drove to Liverpool on Sunday night arriving early morning. Two hours to wait before security even opened :oops:

0630 flight to Malaga
Uber to hotel, arrived in Torremolinos at 1145 - room ready much to our surprise and delight.

On Wednesday we picked up our hire car at 1000. Seven seater, 2.5 hours to Seville. Got to car park with no dramas whatsoever.

Arrived at Alameda de Hercules at about 1 o'clock. Found a table in Gigante Bar, right at the start of the Fanzone. Sat there all afternoon, taking wee turns of going out to experience the atmosphere, then returning to the air conditioning.

After the game walked back to the car, got straight back on to the motorway and back with no problems. Arrived back at our hotel about 04.45.

Flight from Malaga to Liverpool yesterday at 1655

Drive back home, arriving at about 0100 this morning.

Nightshift tonight :eek:

Apart from the result and stadium experience, our trip could not have gone any better.

We had my pals 9 year old granddaughter with us, and we've created memories that will last long after we've gone.

The bears we met and interacted with, both in Seville and Malaga were an absolute credit to the club. Any German fans we met were also a credit to their club, and were very complimentary of Rangers and our fans.

10/10 - would follow follow again :))

Wednesday left Malaga at 7am to go to Fenguirola where we stood waiting on a bus that never appeared.

Train back to Malaga for an Uber that cost £200 and got us to Seville about 1ish.

it was a 1 hour walk from the stadium after the game to the bus park for a bus was adamant was leaving at 1 whether you were on it or not.

the bus never left till 2am, we got to Malaga at 5, got to the apartment picked our bags up and went to the airport got in at 5.30 for a 6 am flight and made it some how.

We’ve from Malaga-Geneva Geneva-Luton Luton-Edinburgh and the bus from Edinburgh to Glasgow and got in about 7pm last night.

Was absolutely shattered, one of the most stressful things I’ve ever done only to come on here and find out me and my 11 year son weren’t singing loud enough for it to be heard over the German fans on the tele.
 
I was direct from seville, but mate of mine had got back from seville-madrid-palma-leeds at 2am, went to work this morning and now his missus is dragging him to a wedding tonight lmao

Monday 17:30 - Train from Glasgow to Crewe

Monday 21:40 - Train from Crewe to Derby

Monday 22:50 - Taxi from Derby to East Midlands airport travelodge (taxi driver got lost on the way there)

Monday 23:50 - Slept for 3 hours in the travel lodge

Tuesday 04:00 - arrived at EML airport, was packed with Rangers fans having a brilliant time.

Tuesday 07:05 - 09:30ish - arrived at Mahon Airport in Menorca. Roof top bar also packed with Rangers fans having a cracking time.

Tuesday 14:00ish - 15:00ish - flew from Menorca to Madrid, Madrid airport is humongous and has the biggest concentration of the most uphelpful people on earth. I’m sure part of the hiring process is a test to ensure you are prick to the general public.

Tuesday 20:00ish - 21:00ish - fly from Madrid to Seville, some buzz!

Tuesday 21:30 - find out our diggs have fallen through and we have no where to go.

Tuesday 21:31 - decide that the best way to solve this issue is to go to a pub and get pished again.

Tuesday 23:45 - get a hotel for 5, turns out to be great and a bargain for £275.

24 hours solid, finally get a kip and shower.

Booked after the Braga home game so it was all pretty straight forward. Direct flights Edinburgh - Faro. Tue - Fri

Tuesday night in Faro, which was bouncing. We had booked onto a bus but, subsequently found out it wasn't leaving until 11.30 as they had to wait on guys arriving that morning. My brother's work mate was staying in Tavira and was driving so, we got the train to him for 3euro in the morning and arrived in Seville at 12.30.
Ended up just going back in the car too.

Other than the usual delays you face at airports our travel wasn't really much different to what I normally encounter. In fact it was a dream compared to my return from Leipzig. Feel for those who are massively out of pocket and/or were messed about.
