Football trips abroad - here are the good tips is written by Jens Skovgaard Andersen.
Football, community and local clubs
There are many good reasons to go on football trips - even if you are not completely crazy about football. Football travel can easily contain many other elements than the match itself.
You must of course experience the area itself, where the match is played, and there is always the opportunity for shopping, good food and cultural experiences. And then hopefully you can witness a great game of football with the unique community of other fans that belong.
Many travel to see specific clubs, and others get a great experience by supporting the national team to great international matches abroad. You can also just ask around when you are on holiday anyway, if there is no football nearby; it is usually there. That way, your vacations easily turn into spontaneous football trips.
The great football experiences on the trip often come in the small local matches, which have great significance for the locals where you are. This is where you meet something you did not expect and where culture lives in its purest form.
Here at the editorial office, we are happy to help you prepare for going on football trips - for example when there were World Cup in Russia in the summer of 2018, and we also have others guides, blogs and tips here.
Travel on your own or get help with your football travels
There is football all over the world, and almost no matter how you travel, you will probably encounter a match - or even be invited to a little game on the street. Therefore, you do not have to plan the whole world from home. Buy a train or flight ticket, go out and see what happens - it does not hurt to check the match calendar in advance.
It can be difficult to get a ticket to the big clubs and the big matches. Therefore, it can sometimes make very good sense to let a travel agent help with the practicalities. It's a shame to go on football trips without football if it's sold out when you get to the box office.
We have also gathered a number of travel offers to various major cities in Europe with even larger football clubs.
Editor Jens travels with the national team
We can not even dare to tell about the great experiences that these journeys give us. RejsRejsRejseditor Jens himself goes on football trips many times a year, and he most closely watched the Danes give the Irish a football lesson at their home ground in Dublin.
Jens himself recommends traveling to a final round in a place where many fans from different countries gather for football, fun and walking in it. And then one can often find a local match around the corner. He himself has experienced football finals in South Africa, Ukraine, France, Russia, United Arab Emirates plus lots of stand-alone football trips and there are many more on the way.
Exciting football trips to the World Cup qualifiers in 2021
Ahead of the upcoming World Cup in Qatar, there is a good opportunity to get on exciting football trips to some very different countries. The trip first goes to summer heat Israel and warmth of heart Austria in the spring.
For the autumn, the national team will play first on scenic Faroe Islands in September, in secret Moldova in October and in atmospheric Scotland in November. All three travel countries we are quite fond of, and we can only recommend that you throw yourself into it and take on football trips. It's super fun!
Really good football trip - see you for community singing and draft beer!
