    Alcohol at the Euros

    so what's the score with having a beer in your seat?

    Re: Alcohol at the Euros

    Normal in German league games. There’s a beer man up and down the aisles, beer keg on his back with a nozzle. He fills the pints, they’re passed down the row and the money passed back along to him. At least that’s what the score was in the Olympic Stadium in Berlin about 6 or 7 years ago.

    Not sure about the Euros situation but you can see fans with pints in their hands.

    It’s cashless anyway but could you imagine the debit card being photographed by everyone down the line, flipped over, 3 numbers on the back

    Scotland is behind us I think. Unless it's recently changed I don't think you can buy it in the ground at all.

    I know they do that in the Nou Camp, although no one told me until after and I didn’t notice lol.

    I've been to a couple of Bundesliga games in the last 18 months or so where only low (very low!) alcohol beer was available - the Hamburg derby and Leipzig v Hertha spring to mind. Even in Germany, it is not a given.

    I'd be surprised if alcohol is served at many of these Euro games - but I may be wrong.

    When myself and the Mrs used to follow Wales ( when they were shit & unfashionable), all grounds were 0% alcohol

    The tossers still used to buy it

    Not sports-related, but i took Mrs h to London last summer and took in a couple of shows - you could order from your seat and have it brought to you.
    New \theate and WMC don't do that, do they?

    Yeah I went to the 2006 world cup there and I've seen Hannover play, albeit not recently. Also seen games in a few other countries and I must admit I can't picture myself with a beer at these games, unlike when I've been to Twickenham, Murrayfield etc when I have routinely drunk during the games

    Re: Alcohol at the Euros

    Isn't the drinking at foreign grounds the reason why they have those large nets behind the goal, so that the plastic glasses don't rain down on the opposition keeper?

    Re: Alcohol at the Euros

    Bitburger is the official beer of Euro 24. It's on sale at all the stadia and fanzones.

    Re: Alcohol at the Euros

    According to The Sun the England v Serbia crowd were only served 2.5% Bitburger shandy but for the Denmark game it'll be back to normal with fans able to but 4.8% Bitburger Pils in the ground and to take to their seats.

    Re: Alcohol at the Euros

    You can certainly take a drink into the New Theatre but I don’t think they bring it to your seat.

    Blimey. As above, even in the Bundesliga there are certain 'higher risk' games where only low alcohol beer is available. I'm tempted to say good luck with Denmark v England!
