I haven't seen a dedicated thread hence creation.

 

Its a shame there's not the same hype around travelling as the Covid Free Champions League adventure but that said, who's going?

 

Anyone booked yet or thinking of booking? 

 

Anyone know if many people are going?

 

Looking at 3 nights myself however there hasn't been the usual steep hike of flight prices like with the Champions League which would say there hasn't been the demand and web traffic there previously has been.

Each to their own I guess, but no idea why anyone would want to travel to any of these away games as things are. 

 

 

The restrictions in Greece look very tight. No more than 4 on a table in doors, no gatherings of more than 7 anywhere. Face masks compulsory at all times. I was contemplating it until I saw that and then I binned it. I'm sure people will still have a good time but I reckon there's going to be a lot of fines handed out to our lads lol

Looking like Greece will be added to the quarantine list this Thursday. Only paid £35 for my flight so won’t be to much out of pocket. Can cancel digs up until the day before.

My initial plan was to book tickets whilst they were cheap enough not to worry about having to cancel - Like you say, £35 is nothing should you have to cancel it.

 

I thought long and hard, and the rest of my friends are going, however i had a word with my less selfish self and couldn't justify the risks of travel & Quarantine due to having a little one. It's a real shame this year but hopefully Europa will be an annual target for the club now. I don't want to come across as entitled but looking at our squad, not getting into Europa every year would be a major disappointment.

I've just been in Athens. They abide by the rules except face coverings everywhere, people are relatively sensible with that. Its nowhere near as restrictive as it sounds.

There's also random covid testing upon arrival and if positive, you have to isolate for 14 days in Greece

This is true in theory but nobody on our flight was tested last week.

You lot are mental, why would you want to go over.

Might sound miserable and melodramatic here but I think any City fans out there could be sitting ducks for AEK's ultras (or any of the Athens clubs for that matter)

Every wants to go over, its just only a select few are stupid enough to.

 

:beer:


Honestly don’t it’ll be shit.

 

Covid restrictions, can’t go the game, can’t gather in crowds, risk of cancellation, risk of being forced to quarantine either side.

 

Literally everything fun about a European away day stripped out.
 

****ing barmy if you ask me.

Yeah, I’ve just landed in Greece yesterday, probably 10-20% being tested 

That percentage, do they appear to be random or is it say ones that have had to fill out forms and have na dress in a 'risk' area?

Depends where you go mate. I know that Rhodes and Kos are pretty hot still. 26 degrees today, but I think the likes of Corfu cool down at this time of year. 
 

i think the latter is true, no idea how Leicester fans would bag a ticket, but I bet someone will lol

Dependent if the local government allows fans to sports events. 
 

Greek football all games are behind closed doors

With no away fans allowed in the grounds, why would anyone still travel, is anyone on here seriously considering it ?

 

So far based on the posts to dat only ones thinking about it have either changed their mind or had their flight cancelled
