Fantastic

incredibly strange. i find the selling notices sometimes weirdly worded but this is the one time it's clear as day what they mean but still the same question pops up. can now feel a little bit of sympathy for the ticket office.  :D

As a genuine match goer in a unique season where there's an opportunity to go to a Euro away, it's incredibly frustrating that this is what we're up against. Hundreds that want a credit that goes to nothing, filling up their baskets with no intention of going, to advertise on the internet. And that's before you throw in the touts. You've even got clueless lads asking for spares after purchase completely unaware their name won't match the buyers name so no wonder there's another market.

And obviously the club do not care the tickets are openly touted.

The whole system is too far gone with aways. People just automatically think they'll get a credit for games this season and will just buy and not bother reading the selling notices - in for a shock next season when nothing has counted.

I know this doesn’t help you - but I would hope that because they’re making us do a collection again - on the claim that’s it’s because Benfica “have requested that a robust verification process is in place for the issuing of tickets”, that checks will be in place. Or we’ve just been lied to to allow another ticket office jolly.

They did checks at the stadium against Roma a few years back including passports which led to chaos getting in, although I think the Italians have a more 'robust' process than the Portuguese from my experience. Just hope a photocopy of the passport page will suffice rather the the actual passport.....don't fancy lugging me passport around all day long.

I really don't understand how people get it mixed up, it isn't that hard! If people just reat the ticket details haha

TICKET CREDITS

As previously stated, tickets purchased this season WILL NOT BE USED AS CREDITS IN FUTURE SEASONS. This policy is still in place and will not be changed this season.

As a result of the ongoing pandemic impact, WE WILL NOT BE USING THIS GAME AS A CREDIT DURING THE CURRENT SEASON EITHER. We do not want supporters to feel obliged to travel when they do not feel comfortable doing so.

This policy will be reviewed on a game-by-game basis during the competition this season, with details provided ahead of each game.

The key wording being "This policy will be reviewed on a game-by-game basis during the competition this season, with details provided ahead of each game."

So whatever they've said is subject to review, meaning its not set in stone. They may well use if after all.

Surely that just means they may change the overall policy so that the SF credit might count, and they will announce that ahead of the sale, not that they'll go back on their word and decide that the Benfica one suddenly counts after they've said it won't.
Rafa Benitez: "I'll always keep in my heart the good times I've had here, the strong and loyal support of the fans in the tough times and the love from Liverpool. I have no words to thank you enough for all these years and I am very proud to say that I was your manager. Thank you so much once more and always remember: You'll never walk alone."

Thats exactly how I've read all 5 sales notices as well, none of those 5 will be used but the 6th one might be.

i watched the chelsea game at my sisters. her 12 year old son is severly autistic and i forgot myself and jumped up screaming at the goal and he went nuts. screaming and shouting. scared the fuck out of me. apologised to my sister as i thought id upset him, turns out he was joining in.

Spoke to the fella doing the door and said he must be bored / fed up. He said it was worth it for the all expenses paid trip. And that he wasn’t originally supposed to be on the door but volunteered because being shown to be helpful on this trip should mean he gets on the next. They love it.

Compliments of @nearly40 on the other Benfica away thread, i am reposting it on here, as it might help a few

Portugal COVID entry requirements:

https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/portugal/entry-requirements


Also i wanted to work out if id had my vaccine within 270 days. Easy way to do it just type into google 'days from 9th july to 4th april', which is 269 days, playing it safe. Applies if you traveling into Portugal on 4th April. So any vaccine on 9th July 2021 or later should fulfill the criteria if traveling on 4th April.

also if you have a booster then the 270 days doesn't apply

All passengers arriving into Portugal must present one of the following:

European Digital COVID Certificate or equivalent valid proof of full vaccination
at least 14 days and no more than 270 days prior to travel.
[Note: No time limits apply where passengers can present a European Digital COVID Certificate or equivalent valid proof of having received a booster vaccine dose.]

European Digital COVID Certificate or equivalent valid proof of recovery from Covid-19;
Valid proof of a negative test result for COVID-19. The following tests are accepted:
PCR (NAAT) tests taken within 72 hours of departure;
Rapid Antigen tests taken within 24 hours of departure. Only Rapid Antigen Tests that are on the list agreed by the European Union Health Committee are allowed. Self-administered home antigen tests are not accepted.

Yeah, i was naive booking Internazionale and didn't check the rules and relied on LFC to tell me the restrictions on travel, which they did very well. I was well outside the 180 days they needed, so thought id get a booster, after having covid. However the last vaccination within 14 days scuppered that. My bad, nobody elses. Just relieved Portugal had this 270 day rule. I wasn't keen on a booster. I think i would have been ok with the covid recovery thingy anyway. Always good idea to check the government website, which someone else posted. Wouldn't want anyone else to miss out on their trips now or in future. RAWK has been a great collective for helping out with this. YNWA

Looks like the meet up area is Praca do Comercio, down by waterfront according to fan info - can't embed the link in pdf, but it's at the bottom of this page.....
