How to use us
This section relates to the guides we have of each individual stadium. While they speak pretty much for themselves, this page provides some further explanation:
- We base the facts and historical information on primary and secondary online resources. We obviously use the resources we trust in the most, but at times we have to works with very limited information. Bear this in mind when you quote us in any other context.
- We base driving directions on a mixture of own experiences, directions given by the official club or stadium website, and directions through Google maps. We try to give the directions that are the easiest to follow, but which may not always be the shortest or quickest. You can, of course, get more specific direction in Google maps or any other journey planner yourself.
- We base the public transport information on what is stated by the official club or stadium website, and on our own research of network maps and schedules, usually taken from the public transport provider of the city in question. We randomly check if the information is still valid, but bus and tram routes can change at any time. Checking either locally the network map, asking the bus or tram driver, or checking online at the link we provide is therefore recommended.
- When we give walking distances, we either base this on our own experiences or on what is given by Google maps. Our experience is that the estimates of Google maps are rather conservative, so you generally should arrive a little more quickly.
- The eating and drinking information only serves to give a general idea on what is around, not so much of the quality of the places.
- The hotel options we give are linked to the Booking.com website, with whom we have a partnership. Of course, this means that we are bound by the hotels they have in their database, and there may be more, especially smaller or more basic, options around. We do get a small fee for each booking, which helps us in maintaining the site.
- We base the ticket information and prices on what is provided by the club or stadium in question. Bear in mind that this can at times be limited and subject to change, and it is therefore advised to always check the latest information in the week before the match.
- Ticket prices are the standard adult prices that one has to pay on the day of the match at the stadium. Various clubs offer discounts for buying in pre-sale, though online and telephone booking often adds surcharges. Many clubs provide special cheaper family tickets and discounted tickets for young adults and senior citizens, but these tickets are left out of consideration.
- Ticket information is updated annually in the first few weeks of a new season. All ticket information has been updated for the 2012/13 season.
- We often give general guidance if a club tends to sell out a lot. We at times also provide specific attendance data. Use this information as a guidance and not as a rule when buying tickets, and don’t forget to use common sense.
- We base the stadium tours information on the information that is provided by the club or stadium in question. Bear in mind that particularly dates and hours are frequently subject to change, and while we at least check the information annually, it is recommended to do so yourself before heading to a stadium.
