    Modernised Ticketing System

    I went to a Fenerbache game in Istanbul a couple of years back. You get a ‘Passolig’ card which is valid for entry at all grounds in the top league. You then have an online account/phone app which you top up with cash and you can buy both home and away tickets for your designated club via the app. Turn up, swipe the card and you are in, the app tells you your seat number etc. You can also use it to buy food/drink inside the stadium. Some of the Turkish fans hate it as they see it as intrusive as it holds a picture of you and links you to the seat you have selected and because it was set up/funded by the government they don’t trust it, but a similar system would work an absolute treat here.

    The A to Z of killie supporters

    Was there in November last year, and still hopeful of making Scotland game there, if we don't get into Europe...the first 4 Scotland aways this year have rouked me! Remarked at the time I was there it would be a cracking place for a trip, an abundance of bars/clubs that seemed to be jumping every night! Dirt cheap and a bit chaotic (very similar to Georgia if you went to either trip there), just stay off the Rakija..it's lethal!! As Skygod said the national stadium where Killie played is a currently a building site, but only about 5-10 mins walk from the main square. Didn't see KF Tirana's current stadium when I was there but on maps it looks to be around the corner from where most of the bars are. If you need any info, drop me a PM

    Cup draw for semis. It's Motherwell

    Unless it has changed recently, I think the cup runner up would get the Europa League place if the cup winner had qualified for the Champions League. The cup European place is more prestigious (You enter round Q2, both league places enter Q1) so if the league Europa League qualifiers won the cup then they would inherit the cup place and their league slot rolls down to 4th. So based on that the following would occur to qualify for Europe we would need to either: Win the cup Lose to Celtic in the cup final Finish 4th and hope either Rangers or Aberdeen win the cup EDIT: Above is old info, new rules as below look like it goes to 4th place league finisher in any circumstance. Redistribution rules A Europa League place is vacated when a team qualifies for both the Champions League and the Europa League, or qualifies for the Europa League by more than one method. When a place is vacated, it is redistributed within the national association by the following rules: When the domestic cup winners (considered as the "highest-placed" qualifier within the national association with the latest starting round) also qualify for the Champions League, their Europa League place is vacated. As a result, the highest-placed team in the league which have not yet qualified for European competitions qualify for the Europa League, with the Europa League qualifiers which finish above them in the league moved up one "place". When the domestic cup winners also qualify for the Europa League through league position, their place through the league position is vacated. As a result, the highest-placed team in the league which have not yet qualified for European competitions qualify for the Europa League, with the Europa League qualifiers which finish above them in the league moved up one "place" if possible.

    Bundelsiga game

    Getting tickets varies on a club by club basis. Some it is incredibly easy, eg. Hertha Berlin, some are incredibly difficult, eg, Bayern. Almost all clubs have a decent English version on their website and most have a print at home option for printing tickets. I’d personally recommend Berlin, Hamburg or Dusseldorf as a base as all offer a decent combination of being easy to get to, good nightlife and sights and a number of clubs within easy reach. Dusseldorf especially offers a number of clubs within an hour or so on the train and is a much better place to spend a weekend that nearby Dortmund. The schedule has been confirmed up until Matchday 22 which is on the weekend of the 9th February, after that is still TBC but there is generally 1 game on a Friday night and 3 on Sunday with the rest being 15.30 on Saturday. Depending on where you are you could potentially get 2 games on the weekends, especially if you include Bundesliga 2 which, although not as high as standard, still offers a great atmosphere and experience (eg Union Berlin and St Pauli) If have a weekend in mind and aren’t that fussed where you want to go I’d suggest sticking in the dates on SkyScanner from Glasgow/Edinburgh and just putting the destination as Germany. The way it will show up the prices to each city, you can use that to then see where ties in with games on the said weekend and go from there. One thing to bear in mind, and is a common misconception is that your match ticket only allows for local (ie. within the city limits) public transport, so local buses, trams, S-Bahn trains etc. It doesn’t include going from city to city. Getting between cities in Germany is very easy and efficient though not the cheapest so worth bearing in mind if you plan on city hopping. Deutche Bahn website has an english version and is very handy, they have a UK call centre as well if you need any further info. Between all the Scotland aways and taking in a good few random European games I've been to a lot of games on the continent and Germany ranks in my mind as the highest in terms of experience so highly recommend a trip over, if you need any more info and want a hand putting a trip together send me a PM.
