With World Cup eliminators, the Champions League, UEFA Cup and, even, the much-derided Intertoto Cup, more teams now play in Europe than ever before and therefore more fans travel abroad regularly to see their teams in action. However, the available literature available to fans travelling from Britain to see games in Europe is very limited. Published to coincide with the Euro 2008 competition in Austria and Switzerland, this guide includes all the stadia scheduled for use in that competition, along with all the other major grounds likely to be encountered by travelling fans heading to European competition matches overseas. Each entry provides the reader with full information about the featured ground, capacity, facilities, how to obtain tickets, how to get there, nearest airport and local bars.This book also includes location maps and a representative selection of photographs. Compiled by Stuart Fuller, who has visited every single ground featured in the book, he brings his own personal knowledge of the grounds featured and facilities available.
