Please,help me about how to buy a ticket.
(I know it can be done by searching on google ,but quite a lot of websites out there,are they all trustable?)
Where do you actually come from?

Think it's difficult to get it from Athletic, especially Athletic haven't got a peña in Turkey. I'd say just call Trabzonspor and stick with the home fans, however then don't wear Athletic stuff as Turkish footballfans normally are quite passionate.

You can find some phonenumers here --> http://www.trabzonspor.org.tr/defaul...1l%C4%B1%C5%9F

If the people don't respond or want to help, try fanclubs.

Also, there's a Trabzonspor forum on Xtratime, perhaps someone on there can help you out.
http://www.xtratime.org/forum/256-trabzonspor/

Outside all that, in countries like these it's normally possible to get tickets on the matchday, if not on the stadium then on the 'black market'. So don't worry too much about it.

Apparently UEFA has changed the draw and now the first game is in Bilbao and the second in Turkey.

What?!?!

I was going to say, at least we have the second leg at home....

(One thing though, at least we wont have to start the season against Madrid after a long trip.)

As for getting a ticket... here is a good place to start for info, not been updated for a while though.

The reason is that Trabanzpor has to play in Istanbul (due to some reason with their homepitch condition). The 18th there is another european competition game in Istanbul since Besiktas also drew a homegame the same date.


Due to UEFA regulations, there cannot be two european cup games at the same place during the same time. So they decide to change Trabanzpors fixtures because Trabanzpor have a lower UEFA ranking then Besiktas (so do we by the way). Apprently they switched a whole bunch of play off series around in the same mater due to the same reasons.

Bad luck for us. A bad draw became worse.

Thanks that clears it a bit up.

Bad luck, on the other hand it's good news they have to play in Istanbul, especially if it's that big national arena, the atmosphere in there is far worse compared to their own stadium.

Yes, their own fans will have to travel to Istanbul which is quite a distance.

It will be a tough game in Istanbul, indeed.

Also, it seems like Trabanzpor prefers a 4-4-2. Now, will that force Bielsa to play with three central defenders? That move didn't turn out so great in second half against Tottenham...

I think so, Iraola's injured and there's noone else....

Gurpe will do a good job there, but we could do with a proper backup even if Iraola is hardly ever injured.

Well, it was either him or De Marcos. Gurpes experience and fighting spirit might not be a bad choice...

It is really horrible that i couldn't get a ticket still,
It seems very unlikely to me now.
I've tried my best,even my mobile phone cut off now due to many international calls
Athletic should really sell ticket on the net too,
I hate this.

Trust me you'll always get a ticket outside the stadium, just not with the Athletic fans.

Well, are we sure Gurpe is on the right back? Put him in his usual position and we have the 3-4-3 formation...

Personally I think he is right back, though

Well as Knoert says if you're desperate you'll find a way of getting a ticket, you may still be able to get a ticket in the home end legally, dunno if the game is sold out yet.

As for why the club doesn't sell tickets online, the global fanbase isn't big enough - most of the fans live in the Basque Country. But even then I highly doubt away tickets (especially in Europe) would be available online. Next time you could try emailing the club but I think the chances would be slim.

Regarding Gurpegi, how many strikers do Trabzonspor play? If it's two then it could be 3-3-1-3, which you could do with that 11. We haven't done too well with that formation in pre-season though so I hope it's 4-3-3 we're playing.
