Friday night is the first of 4 crucial World Cup Qualifiers for Scotland with a massive game in Vilnius, Lithuania. ATAC have provided some advice for Travel in our latest Sporran Guide. We hope you find this useful.
It is only 4 sleeps to the big match on Friday night and as Scotland fans prepare to make one of the shortest away trips ATAC have compiled a few helpful hints and tips. This is the second sporran guide we have produced, thanks for all the feedback on the Slovakia guide. We hope you find this useful.
ATAC will issue a guide for Wembley nearer the time of the game but discussions with the SFA ahead of the Slovakia game highlighted a potential challenge with the ticket sales period. Please note that the tickets for Wembley will go on sale shortly after our return from Slovakia. The SSC will be recording the Slovakia point before releasing the tickets –v- England, this will result in a short purchasing window, the SSC are aware of this but have recognised that this is the best way to ensure that the points system is up to date, ATAC supports this position – Keep an eye on your emails.
ATAC are really pleased to publish the first Sporran Guide to offer information and travel advice for the upcoming game in Slovakia. We hope you find this useful.
Those fans who were in Malta for the Italy game will know that there were some issues with parking at the Stadium. Recognising this ATAC have been liaising with the SFA security officer on parking for Scottish supporters buses.
Only official coaches – Team, SFA officials and Media will park in official car park at the stadium. Other coaches will be routed to park adjacent to the National Park a short walk from the stadium (we hope to circulate a map on Thursday following a security meeting).
However, ALL persons arranging travel by coach or mini bus for Scottish fans should contact their bus or tour operator with the request that they contact the Maltese FA who will issue them with a PASS and specific instructions on where they should park. The Maltese FA would prefer to have the requests by Thursday.
If you know of anyone organising transport please pass this message to them.
Parking is very restricted in the vicinity of the stadium, it will be dark when leaving the stadium and the area is very poorly lit, therefore it is requested that all organisers and convenors accept the assistance of the Maltese FA and follow the instructions of officials and local police around the stadium.
