    What you mean general admission? Surely to get into the ground these days you have to be a member of some sort.

    Confirmed.



    Ten pound for adults, five for kids. Wish I was in Europe for the final!

    Ditto.

    The booze is a make or break for me as well.

    FBEE4703-831B-4835-8F2A-04F3BF9232D8.jpeg They should go into concert mode for this and make it more of a fan park, with bars dotted around etc.

    Fine you lose a stand, but then gain pitch space. Everyone facing the right way and no crooked necks from turning funny angles to watch screens unnaturally for 90 minutes!

    Believe drinks are only not allowed in view of pitch on match day. Pretty sure if we host concerts etc, drinks must be allowed.

    Think this is a great idea, not sure if there is emough time to prepare. I wonder if there are any other concerns like a pitch full of extra people using the same bars, exits and toilets but this should be the same as concert mode. Only difference i suppose is the swarm of people all using the concourses at the same time, ie half time. I guess a few people will take the opportunity to get to see the stadium too, so there could be a bigger attendance than an old WHL game!!

    Turning it in to a fan park would be a good idea, with the nfl pitch but i wonder if it's a little too soon to organise something like that?

    Pretty sure you can hire screens like this. Scaffolded up and sized by the tile screens to whatever your needs are. Screens have been sourced quick enough for other sporting finals for fanparks and city squares at much shorter notice.

    As for overcrowding, can be dealt with. Anyone on pitch level should be directed to concourses behind empty stand. As with park concerts, additional portaloos and bars etc can be made into area behind the screen.

    There’s much more profit in charging people to look at our existing tellies, sadly.

    I'm guessing Levy believes his four large top-of-the-range screens are good enough. Fine when there's a game on in the middle, but to be in the stands in front of an empty pitch, all of us looking in different directions, I cannot quite see how that works for atmosphere.

    It's why our group of friends and family have already decided to get together at a local club instead.

    Liverpool allowed alcohol in the stands at Anfield for their final screening last year. So I assume it will be up to Haringey and whatever licence is need.

    P.S. Liverpool are not repeating their live screening this year. Not sure if this tells us anything about its success.

    Little bit different as there is light years difference in quality between the two stadiums but arent they in part not going ahead with it this year due to anfield hosting some concerts or something?

    I think they had large screens set up on the pitch for the viewing. But I think you could be right about other commitments.

    Take that for what it's worth.

    I’m going to try and fly over for the game at the Lane. Any of us brave/foolish/thrill seeking enough should arrange a pre-kick off meet up. Of course so we all recognize each other we each need to bring a badger, bowl of custard, Jeff Golblum baseball cap and wear a Bassong replica shirt. Hope to see you ugly fcukers soon!

    Anyone know roughly what kind of time kicking out would be for this? I would need to get the train back the next morning but if I need a hotel it's probably not worth it price wise.

    Ha. It was more the difficulty in seeing the action rather than the quality of football or significance of the occasion.

    That said, when a West Ham fan emailed me and an ex work colleague who happened to be a Gooner, congratulating us on reaching our respective cup finals, I was rather pleased with my response congratulating him on winning his!

    I've been checking daily and no further update from club as to when the on-sale date is yet.

    I know they need to get all the ST applications for Madrid sorted first, which I guess (!!), means they intend to allocate NWHL screening tickets as they do a Prem game...offer ST's first dibs at their seat, then go to OH+, then OH, and finally general public.
