    Euros Matchgoing?

    Anyone making any games?

    I was going to have a packed tournament, doing all of Wales group games and with a Follow My Team ticket if we made the knockout stages as well as having tickets for a lot of Wembley matches.

    As it stands, I'm returning my tickets for the Baku matches this week having finally given up on a trip and holding on to my ticket for Rome just in case I decide to go last minute and deal with the consequences in terms of onward travel and/or quarantine.

    My Wembley games have been halved having had the tickets for two England group games (primarily bought for my English wife to take my Anglo-Cymric son while I was away with Wales) cancelled with the Covid capacity cuts along with those for one semi-final. That leaves me with tickets for one R16 game there, one semi-final and the final though I fear there they may be subject to cancellation to depending on the government's news on restrictions.

    Luckily, a friend has come through with two tickets for England v Croatia on Sunday as my original tickets for that game were a 13th birthday present to my son fifteen months ago that I wanted to honour.

    My wife has decided that I should take him as long as I don't openly support Croatia, which I am willing to try to do (and I really wouldn't want to piss on my own son's parade, especially as he has always been so determinedly diplomatic about having two international sides).

    Might be useful for your own physical safety as well.

      He's a big lad but I reckon I've got a couple of years before he can take me.

        I had Italy v Wales and then follow-your-team tickets for Wales right through from hypothetical round of 16 to hypothetical final. I gave them all back early this year... and only afterwards realised there was a chance some of those might be at Wembley. We live and learn.

          You'll enjoy this, Ray, from Welsh comedian Elis James.

            All the FMT tickets were cancelled a couple of months ago, anyway. You've lost nothing.

              Uros and I know every single person quoted in that article (one of them is an erstwhile OTFer too), some of them have been regular traveling companions for decades.

                It's a good read, but features several people me and Ray know well, and so we'll also have to suffer the consequences of them banging on about that time they were in The Guardian.

                  Had Italy - Switzerland, Spain - Slovakia and the three England group games. Went for refunds on the first two and lost all the England games in the re-ballot. May get to a game if England progress, but I don't hold out much hope.

                    I was balloted out of the last 16 game at Hampden, no prospect of seeing anything now which is very disappointing.
