    Surprised I didn't see a thread for this.

    Looks like mid season friendlies played abroad are something that are coming to us as well. Not sure how to feel about this if it becomes a common occurrence, but with having a big break after EL game it could be a good thing to keep the players sharp.

    Needless detour during a crucial part of the season. Hope no one gets injured.

    hard to see that happening. They must have paid good money to invite them.

    Anyway, looking forward to seeing them if I can get tickets. Gonna see who is playing first, though

    Man United went there in January, didn't do them much harm.

    Stadium holds about 15,000. Don't think getting tickets will be a problem.

    But on a Tuesday? In the middle of the week...baah! now I'll have to jump through hoops to be there.

    15K capacity? Wahhh, it is freaking small. I don't think getting a ticket will be a problem, but what I meant is getting a good/great seat will be a challenge.

    Middle of the day is not an issue for me since I will be visiting, but the fact that most of the players could be away to International matches is a concern. That's worrying. Some key players could be missing. Although thinking about it, I do not suppose many will be missing. Our French players are not selected, Özil retired, Auba, I don't see Gabon playing that week, rest of the German players are not selected, and Wales's last match is on 20th March.

    I am not sure what category 2 and 3 mean. Which areas of the stadium are they? Based on the pricing, I can assume category 2 is a better zone...? I wonder how much will the category 1 be and why will it not be available on that website?
    Do you know? @krackpot
