England U21 playing in Tampere in Sept!

Post by oompah18 » Fri Jun 21, 2013 12:07 am

After noticing that most tickets were sold out for the Man City v Arsenal match in Helsinki, and the Fin v Spain tickets were an absolute fortune, I was pleasantly surprised to notice that England under 21s are playing Suomi U21 in Ratina Stadium, Tampere, 17.50 for adults, 9eur for kids. Nice prices! So incase anyone else on the forum couldn´t afford to see the top teams, at least Engl v Suomi youngsters gives a good reason to go and yell, Come on England, at the top of your voice, in Finland, and be proud of it!!! Tickets from:
www.lippupalvelu.fi
I embarass my boys, because I always yell "Come on ..." in English during every football game they play in the TPV summer season. But I think the Finns in my village are getting used to "the crazy Englishwoman and her family" !!!!!

Mehhhh, U21 football has never interested me. Unless Sammy Ameobi has somehow miraculously got a call up by then, I'll be giving it a miss :D

Well, I found a link to the team list. I must be out of touch because I only recognise about 5 players from the whole selection! But we will go anyway!!!!!!!!!!!1

Hi, does anyone know if England fans attend away u21s games ? Just wondering which section of Ratina to get my seat in A,B,C, or D ? Or is it the kind of stadium that you can walk aroond between sections freely ? I'm ashamed to say I've never been before

All the available seats seem to be in the small, covered area. I am going with my England flag, while my husband & kids wave Finnish flags. It is fairly easy to wander around there, well it was when I watched the European U23 athletics champs there. letś hope itś a good game, with gareth Southgate now in charge!

Thanks for the info ! yes it does look quite an open stadium from what ive seen. I think it could be a good game, often the u21 games are more exciting than the seniors :D

I hope there are LOTS of goals anyway, as they have just thrashed Scotland 6-0.
My youngest boy plays in a TPV summer season team & they have only won one game & scored 5 goals (3 were his!) all Summer season, so he is eagerly awaiting some skilled action! :lol:

I went and enjoyed the game. It surprised me that there wasn't a bigger crowd. An international game at sensible prices but only 1 stand in use. Crazy.
