    Re: Wales Playoff Tickets

    Clever...so you have to gamble and buy a ticket for the second game even though it could be the mother of all dead rubbers.

    Indeed. A right pig in a poke.

    I assume they will have to refund the 2nd game if Wales don’t win the first

    I'm confused, surely any second game either happens (and is massive) or doesn't take place at all, cos Wales lost?

    Moaners out in force again. There is only 4 days between the two games and two of those are a weekend, so they obviously need to be pro-active somehow.

    Also, makes it easier for someone wishing to purchase both. If you just want to purchase one then just purchase the game you know is definitely going ahead

    If the 2nd game doesn’t take place then there will
    obviously be a refund. They can’t keep the money for an event that doesn’t take place.

    Losers play each other

    There's only 5 days between semi final and final so it makes sense to do it this way.
    I assume refunds would be in order if Wales don't qualify.
    There would be chaos if they were trying to organise it the day after the semi final as there would only be 4 days until the final.

    "...the four nations in our play-off path have agreed that the two losing semi-finalists will play each other in a friendly."

    "The problem is that Scotland - like all other UEFA nations - are contracted to play 10 matches per year for television purposes so they would have to play a game on the 29th anyway - or choose another date which might be tricky given the congested calendar."

    The prices have increased.

    So there you are, if you decide to purchase the 2nd ticket and not wait for the outcome of the 1st you’ll get to watch a football match, albeit a friendly.

    Unless I’m missing something the FAW are not making people buy BOTH tickets as a combined package.

    From the FAW link -

    'Scotland and Ukraine meet in the other semi-final and depending on the results from both matches, Cymru will also play home against one of those teams on 29 March at Cardiff City Stadium.'

    So it's either the final or a friendly on the 29th

    F**k me, that would be shit. Imagine Wales v Ukraine in a friendly just days after being knocked out of the world cup qualifiers.

    What a pointless game - can see what the poster meant by 'dead rubber' now. Had no idea that was the plan.

    Wont happen of course

    Still very reasonable though

    Re: Wales Playoff Tickets

    So you have to buy tickets for both games? Not sure will sell out?

    Re: Wales Playoff Tickets

    Lots of logic in doing it this way.
    As the games are so close together.
    A fixture needs to be fulfilled regardless it seems - shame it couldn’t be credit towards the nations league match if we lost the semi.

    That dead rubber would be a horrendous occasion.

    But the FAW need to cash in whilst their stock is high and they will shift the lot no doubt and why wouldn’t they back themselves on the pitch.

    £2 booking fee and £2 transaction fee per ticket is a pisstake isn't it

    Cos they’ve got to play a certain number of games a year and they want to make some money.
