Stadium Petrol Arena, Celje

I'm a Scotland supporter and I am looking forward to our visit to Celje in October.

Can anyone advise me if the stadium will increase its capacity before the Slovenia v Scotland match? at the moment I notice the capacity is only 8,600 but with around 2,000 Scotland fans expected to travel to the match, tickets may be a problem

Hi there. The way it seems now it looks like the stadium should be increased indeed, by some 1500 seats, meaning an entire north stand should be build which will be for the home fan groups.

As for the number of Scottish fans, I don't know, you say some 2000, but I doubt our FA will give you that much tickets. Normaly it's about 10% of the stadiums capacity for the visiting fans, so even of the stadium will be increased I can't see Scottish fans getting more than arround 1000 tickets. This was also the case in our previous campaigns, when we were still playing in Ljubljana with the stadium capacity of 10.000. The visiting fans even in those highly important matches (like the playoff against Croatia) didn't get more than some 1000 tickets.

Anyway, I hope you'll decide to come to Celje and have a good time here. :thmbup:

No way Scotland will get 2000 tickets. 1000 at max in my opinion.

Thanks for this, is the North Stand going to be behind one of the goals?

What I meant regarding fan numbers was that around 2,000 Scotland fans will go to Slovenia, but obviously not all of them will have tickets! Sometime's FA's decide to give us more than 10% of allocation due to our numbers, but in this case this may not happen.

Maybe they will give us all of the North Stand (if it is built)?

I don't know exactly where North Stand is (I guess it should be behind one of the goals, but in Slovenia you never know for sure), but Belarus fans were located somewhere in the corner of the main stand, because stands behind both goals are not built yet.

The north stands will be under the big screen board, looking from the main stands that's on the left. As I said, it should hold somewhere up to 1500 seats and it will be used by the home fan groups - not the visitors.

You say about 2000 Scottish fans could come to Celje, well in that case not all of you will be able to get into the stadium, as simple as that. Maybe you'll be able to get some tickets on the black market before the kick off but that's about it.

So far we have taken:

10,000 to Milan
1,800 to Chisinau
1,600 to Minsk
and will take 2,500/3,000 to Oslo (they are giving us an increased allocation)

If we are still in with a chance of qualification then perhaps more than 2,000 will travel to Celje. They will just have to watch the game on TV in a Celje bar!

We'll see what happens than, maybe you'll get a bigger share of the tickets afterall. In the other case, there are plenty of bars over in Celje.
Defenetly more will be known in the weeks leading to the game.

As long as there are lots of bars we will all have a great time :thmbup:

I heard German fans caused trouble in March, was it bad?

Well there were quite some things broken and torn down, but I belive no serious injuries happened. Our police wasn't ready for it as it was just a firendly so no one expected it to come, thats also why the public was really pissed off about it.


Of course noone expects anything like that from the Scottish supporters as you are known for your fair and sporty behaviour all over the world. :thmbup: That's why I'm allready looking forward to this match and possibly meeting up with some of you to have some good time togather.

We witnessed bad violence in Milan when Italian supporters and police were attacking each other in the stadium, but 10,000 of us just sang louder! Then I read about problems in Celje after the Germany game.

That week in Celje/Ljubljana will be one big party regardless of the result! Most fans will be based in Ljubljana but a few hundred will be staying in Celje. I am booked into the Hotel Evropa in Celje for 3 nights.
