Champions League Final 2019
June 1 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Kick off 8 pm UK Time
..at the home of Atletico Madrid, the Wanda Metropolitano
Tickets will be as scarce as a trophy at Goodison Park, so it’s all eyes on the club ballot and ticket purchase on Friday 17th. Details of the process have been outlined in Ian’s email sent out to those who attended the previous rounds.
Baker Street Pub Gloucester “Fan Park”
Those of us who went along to the Blue Bamboo on Gloucester docks last year will remember it with mixed feelings because of Senor Ramos, but the idea and set up was good. Read Graham’s email about the plans for the same again but at this different venue……
MADRID UPDATE … URGENT, URGENT!!
