Has anyone here bought Champions League tickets as an away supporter? We’re going to Europe for vacation in any event but I would love to plan the trip around seeing Newcastle play on the road.
We are planning a trip to England and in order to get EPL tickets for United, we had to purchase a membership to United. Arsenal was the same.
Various levels but some do give access to their EPL away games and European tickets. Don't know if all the teams do it the same way or not, but I would start there.

You have zero chance of getting a ticket in the Newcastle end. If you just want in the stadium (and can be sensible if/when Newcastle score) elsewhere then it's going to be draw dependent as to what you need to do

Yeah, figured as much. Still might be fun just to party with everyone in the city.

Yep, I did this to go to St. James Park when I went several years back and have had a membership every year since. But I can’t earn loyalty points or anything this year.

I might try titus’s suggestion to get a home ticket and behave. I’ve seen that suggestion elsewhere.

I mean that's a decent plan. Always a possibility that if you ask around for spares you find someone who knows someone who couldn't travel, has work, got too pissed etc and needs to offload one. Happy to give you specific suggestions once the draw is done and you know who you're playing, chances are you'll get at least one opponent where I know the area (which is tempting fate to give you something like PSG, Porto and Galatasaray etc)

Might be your best call. Not sure what the secondary market is like there as opposed to the US. You might also check some Newcastle supporters groups in your area. The United group in LA often plans trips and has access to tickets others might not get. Make sure they are the official group per the club

It's an entirely different thing for an away game though. Particularly when Newcastle are back in the Big Cup for the first time in the best part of two decades. Many clubs will hold home tickets specifically for overseas fans, supporters clubs etc, away tickets not so much. You're not going to find any secondary market for away tickets either, at least one that is legal and trustworthy - reselling tickets for over face value is illegal here (YMMV with other Euro countries) and there's often methods to prevent resales even at face

Yeah, that's what I would do. Probably would just wear some regular, non-Newcastle clothes.

Don’t think the Europeans are familiar with Phoenix Rising.

Please stop going into my closet.
 
I guess this was inevitable but I kind of hoped that they would have taken the path to merge with the new MLS team instead of drawing a line in the sand saying they had no interest

==========================

The San Diego Loyal will cease operations following the 2023 USL Championship season “after a viable near- and long-term stadium solution in the market did not materialize,” the USL announced Thursday. The franchise rights will be transferred, the league said.
 
Any one here ever tried to get tickets through a concierge? Either hotel or credit card? I plan on going to a Galatasaray match, and buying tickets seems like an ordeal.
 
from BBC

An unnamed Albanian side is interested in signing Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood, 21, after the club and player reached a mutual decision for him leave Old Trafford after an internal investigation. (Talksport)

pretty sure that's EVERY albanian side.

I believe it's just a case of getting the passolig sorted and then it's moderately simple from there. I'll have a look at a group I'm in this evening to see what to do, Istanbul's somewhere I want to go for a game sometime in the near future
 
Alright, beginning in a three games in three days mission:

Dronfield Town v Parkgate (tomorrow, FA Vase first qualifying round)
Sheffield United 0 v Manchester City (Sunday, Premier League)
York City v Rochdale (Monday, National League)
how tough was it to get tickets? I am assuming pretty easy for 2 of the games

Two pay on the day, other is season ticket
 
I live in Miami but haven't been interested in Inter Miami......until Messi came. Since then, I haven't missed a match, just to see how long this crazy run is going to last.

Granted, it's the MLS versus the highest levels of European football, but damn. He is the true epitome of someone that makes those around him better. The Red Bulls may not be the best comparison, but Inter Miami downright sucked eggs before he (and Busquets and Alba) got here. That team is really starting to believe in themselves. Not sure they will get from the basement to a playoff spot, but at least they are fun to watch now.
 
So this morning, I watched a bit of the Bayern/Augsburg game. Then I watched the entire Juventus/Bologna game. Then I watched the Palmerias/VascoDeGama game. When that one was over, I watched the end of the Minnesota/Sounders game. Yeah, I know cool story bro who cares.
Well, it didn't click in until the 3rd and 4th games, and I was like, wtf. But each stadium was the Allianz stadium (or some variation thereof). I knew Bayern's stadium was Allianz, but never knew the others. And I guess there's like 7 of them ffs. Either way, very weird that the stars aligned like this all on the same day.
Carry on.
 
This is really interesting. A bunch of original MLSers talking about the early years, the small pay, the travel etc. It is interesting to hear that conditions that would be unacceptable to the lowest level academy player today were the norm for the top players of the club back then.

[Franco Panizo] 👀 Tata Martino dropped a bit of a news bomb regarding MLS not playing through FIFA’s international fixture dates: “I have it understood that they are analyzing that for next year. “It is probable that that will happen.”​

When I was in Minneapolis last December, I took the train into St. Paul and to my surprise as it passed Allianz Field. I did not realize that was the name of Minnesota United's stadium.
I had to get off the train and take some pics.
 
Southgate trying to out Berhalter GGG.

Calls up Maguire, who is yet to play this season and didn't play much last season. And to make his point, he calls up Kalvin Phillips, who hasn't played in a year since getting injured in his move to City.

Leaves Sterling and Ward Prowse at home....
