    I’m gonna be heading over to Cologne (nearest city to Leverkusen) for the Europa League match on 25th November 2021.

    Whether I have a ticket for the game or not, I will be travelling for the craic. So if you’re doing the same as me or are a Celt in Germany. Let us know what the craic is, where’s best to go ect.

    Would love to go! Just a few days before the draw I said to myself I'd love to go back to the place where I stayed in Germany back in the late 80s during the troubles as a kid. There was this scheme that provided holidays for us through funding from America or euro children who lived in war torn places in europe or Ireland to give us some relief from the stresses that goes with all it what we where going through or witnessed. Anyway I ended up in Germany for 4 or 6 weeks and just before the draw I was looking at the same place I stayed back then on Google map. The family I stayed with looked after the local football team and I found the exact place on Google map. Have fond memories of playing football age 8(or9) on the two football pitches and not a cloud in the sky. Weather was amazing! Wuppertal the place was called. Flying trains believe it or not Wuppertal was renowned for. Like something out of a skifi film. I remember seeing them and even as a kid your like *!


    Anyway, I told myself as soon as Celtic draws a club close to it I'm going to take the two young lads over, go to the match and take them to where I stayed and tell them all about my stay there. Few days later we draw Leverkusen ffs :triplomur. 30 mins away from wupertal. And wee west coast Tommy talks himself out of it because, one it came far to soon for me and two, to much work responsibilities up untill xmass. * gutted!

    With thst said, a few decent German teams not far from where I stayed so hopefully next year or after xmass we draw one of them and I do get the chance to get over.​

    5 of us heading over without match tickets, hopefully restrictions might ease for a full house but still be struggling to get tickets but not arsed really. Good couple of nights to be had either way.

    Provisionally booked my hotel tonight. Just fingers crossed we’ll receive an away allocation. Seen somewhere that there’s meant to be an update this week.

    Germany gonna be some craic if Celtic get tickets for it. Hopefully be inside the ground but if not there’s plenty drinking to be done in the pubs there :lager::party22:

    Had my flights & hotel booked hoping we would get fans in. Even though i will be sitting in the home end right beside our fans. Going to be a cracking away game :36:

    First time poster here but booked up for this also. Should be a cracking trip.

    Flying in to dusseldorf but not booked accomodation yet. Are majority staying in Cologne? Only a half hour train to Cologne so might stay there if so.

    I’m staying in Cologne. Fair few Irish Pubs there, only 20 mins on the train to the BayArena. Plus flights were cheaper to Cologne than Düsseldorf :50:

    Come to the conclusion that my best bet is to grab a seat in the home end for the game near our away fans :56:

    For those who do end up with tickets be it home or away section the match ticket will get you rail travel to and from the game for travel within the State boundary.

    For those without tickets but travelling in a group it's much cheaper to buy a block group rail ticket. Very few ticket checks are made on German trains but expect a hefty on the spot fine if caught without one. Rail travel is generally very cheap so don't risk a fine or even being arrested.

    Gonna be a fair few Celts in the home stands I’d say. Daily Record reporting we’ve only been given 1,500 tickets for the away end

    Just bought my ticket off the Bayer Leverkusen’s website

    Section F4; their map shows half of the section as being in the away end. €50 if you want to be sat as close to our fans as possible, only a handful of seats left in that section.

    We got 4 tickets in B1, hopefully the talks of lockdown over there doesn't materialise.
