Hammers United Europa League Round of 16 V SC Freiburg
EUROPA LEAGUE ROUND OF 16 V SC FREIBURG

AWAY LEG - THURSDAY MARCH 7TH - 20.00 HRS

West Ham have received 2230 tickets which went on sale to Bondholders, Away Scheme Members and Season Ticket Holders on February 28th. We anticipate these will quickly sell out and Season Ticket Holders will need a high number of priority points to be successful.

We spoke to our friend Colin Wells who went to Freiburg in the group stages:
https://hammersunited.com/freiburg-away-thursday-7-march-8pm-kick-off-local-time/

We spoke to Martin Endermann from Football Supporters Europe and Helen from one of the main Freiburg supporters groups on February 28th. They were very helpful and we thank them both.

We can pass on information as follows to supplement Colin’s observations:

It is 3 to 4 km from the City Centre to the Stadium and a 45 minute/one hour walk. There are regular buses to and from the city centre to the stadium and the bus fare is included in the price of the match ticket.

There is food available and a bar in the away end of the stadium. Most restaurants in the city centre close at 10.00pm but bars stay open till midnight.

There are 2 or 3 discos open later where one can get a late drink - Apparently you don’t need to dance to get a drink!!

No bottles of any kind can be taken into the stadium. There are drinking fountains in the stadium.

It is a Police decision whether or not West Ham fans are kept behind in the stadium after the match. We are not aware of any decision being made yet one way or the other.

Freiburg is a family club and the vast majority of their fans are looking forward to welcoming us. However there is a small hooligan element so as always we would advise our fans to stick together and not wander off in small groups. The small Freiburg hooligan element congregates in the Elfasser Street area which is in the University area of town so it may be best to stay clear.

HOME LEG - THURSDAY MARCH 14TH - 17.45 HRS

Tickets are on sale and we doubt the match will sell out.

Freiburg fans groups are not expecting more than 1500 or so to travel.It is likely they will only take up the lower tier at London Stadium.

The ISC wrote to the Club on 24th February about the early K.O. for the home tie with Freiburg. Fans had reported that they felt pressured into buying tickets in advance as they were told via the Club’s website that prices could rise depending on who we were drawn against.

The ISC requested that all fans who bought tickets to the Europa League round of 16 home tie in advance of the opponents and kick off time being known be offered a cash refund if they are unable to make the match.

They feel that the majority of fans won’t take that offer of a refund up, but for those who have spent their hard earned money in advance and now cannot make the game it would be a fantastic gesture of loyalty from the Club to the fans and one that all fans would greatly appreciate.

They have also suggested that the Club consider utilising the 17.45 kick off time to offer Kids for a Quid as it will help towards making it a full house for the game and give younger fans a great opportunity to experience a West Ham European game.

You can read the letter here https://www.whuisc.com/news.html

At the time of writing the Club has not replied and the ISC chased them up this morning.

STAY SAFE

To all Hammers attending the match(es). Stay safe,have a great time and cheer the boys on to victory.

Nice one, OTB. Got home via Zurich early Saturday. Was a good trip despite the scoreline.

Got home a couple of hours ago after going to Stuttgart-Union Berlin last night. Another great trip, despite the result.

Just got back. Seemed to me there were plenty of trains. Train down from Frankfurt on Thursday was empty. Trains going back up were fine too. Think some were cancelled but it wasn't what I would call an effective strike.

Hope everyone made it back ok. Not been in long after setting of at 5 yesterday morning. Feels like I’ve been away a lot longer. Another great away trip spoiled by 90 minutes of football!

Thanks Huggie. We’ll jump on the trams and see what they say.

Looks like some trains are going tomorrow from Zurich, that stop in Basel, you then switch to another train that goes to Basel Bad station, where you get your connection for Freiburg. I guess we'll see...

That’s promising, although I don’t want to get stuck in Germany on Friday if the cunts decided to cancel those trains.

Re: Hammers United EUROPA LEAGUE ROUND OF 16 V SC FREIBURG
The German rail website bahn.de shows a limited service from Basel to Freiburg tomorrow. Basically hourly. Looks like they are not all from the same Basel station so don't get caught out with that. I haven't analysed it too deeply as I am travelling down today. Good luck.

It's true Chairman. One return journey free on day of the match with outbound within 5 hours of kick off.

Have rebooked the train VH, we’ll just have to see. A few travel horror stories in store from some fans, I expect.

There's not much more that could have gone wrong there. Rent a car?

Re: Hammers United Europa League Round of 16 V SC Freiburg
2 things on this one.

1, I remember the home leg last time having loads of Freidburg fans. We had some quite clearly sitting around us including some bloke sitting pretty much in full lederhosen drinking a can of brew. They were strolling around as if it was fine. Common issue but the club needs to do more.

2. How can watch from my armchair without paying a full months subscription to TNT/BT?

The cable car is out of order, sadly.

Re: Hammers United Europa League Round of 16 V SC Freiburg
Freiburg is a lovely picturesque town. I have friends there but lost touch since the late 90s.

There’s a nice cable car up St Valentines mountain to a good restaurant which does fantastic pancakes.

Not that anyone’s gonna do any hiking but you’re on the edge of the Black Forest.

Re: Hammers United EUROPA LEAGUE ROUND OF 16 V SC FREIBURG
I'm flying in and out of Basel - booked a Flixbus return on the Freiburger-Reisedienst last night for about €50 as, much like someone below, the train from Switzerland was actually run by DB so possibly not running.

Looked at car transfers from the airport - £165 each way!

simon.s 11:32 Tue Mar 5
Re: Hammers United EUROPA LEAGUE ROUND OF 16 V SC FREIBURG
My trains to and from Zurich look like they are running at the moment, although that could change. Does say on the website there will be some kind of service, but what that looks like on the day, who knows. Cunts.

Chairman Alf 2:32 Tue Mar 5
Re: Hammers United EUROPA LEAGUE ROUND OF 16 V SC FREIBURG
Is that true about bus tickets being included in the price of the match tickets and where and how can this be verified?

Two of us will be making our way to the stadium from the Hauptbahnhof by public transport and I was doing research about where and how to buy the bus or tram tickets.
