Bad News Emerges For Ireland Fans Hoping For A Match Ticket In Bosnia

If you were hoping to travel to Zenica to watch Ireland take on Bosnia & Herzegovina in the first leg of our Euro 2016 qualification playoff, then you would want to have a ticket secured already.

If not, it's going to be very difficult to obtain one was the FAI have been handed what seems like a ridiculously low allocation of just 600 tickets for the match in the Bilino Polje Stadium.


Usually, the stadium holds a capacity of 15,600, of which Irish fans would have been allocated 5%, resulting in a figure closer to 800 tickets, but due to UEFA regulations, only 11,500 fans will be in attendance which is why so few tickets have been made available.

Initially, only 575 tickets were made available, as that is all that was required being 5% of 11,500, however the FAI have been negotiating with Bosnian officials for more and managed to squeeze out an extra 25 to round off the figure at even 600. It may not seem like much, but at least that's 25 more supporters who get to go.
