When the fixtures were announced, Croatia was provisionally given as Friday the 7th of June, with an agreement of a 21.00 KO.

Didn't both FA's say they wanted to bring it forward due to the gap between the end of the leagues and this date?


Am I right and if so, has anyone heard anything about this?

You are right.

I've not heard anything about it since then though.

i e mailed the sfa about this last week and was advised that discussions are still ongoing. the problem from the supporters point of view is that flights will be on sale in approx 10 weeks time. if this situation is not resolved by then what do we as supporters do, wait until such times as it is resolved, which to be honest could be any time, and then pay inflated prices for flights. once again the fans are the last to be considered. cant see what the issue is, if we are both free on the 4th then play the game on the 4th. its a no brainer for me.

They announced ages ago it was going to be in Split. We just don't know when yet.
I can't understand why we let someone else rule our land.

No they never. It was just newspaper talk but nothing was ever officially confirmed from the Croatian FA.

It was the same again in 2013 but hopefully the Black can get a bit closer in 2014!

Went from Split - Zagreb a few years back on the double header with San Marino. Took about 8 hours on the bus. Wouldn't fancy doing that again.

Internal transport within Croatia is not the greatest, and to do a few 100 km's takes a life time (also you will find that there may only be 2 or 3 trains a day to most the possible locations for the game).

We did a tour of Zagreb and I asked the guide about travel by road to other cities, and he said Zagreb to Split can take anything between 6 and 8 hours.

I was looking at staying in Split and if the game was in Zagreb flying there and back.

Wasn't that expensive and the times are very good.

Hoping to go to Dubrovnik for a week with maybe a few days in Montenegro as well. From there flights are reasonable to Zagreb or we'll probably get bus or drive if it's Split.

Thought there were some stories from the Crotian FA before, although not confirming, saying it was likely 2 games in Zagreb, 2 in Split and the last somewhere else?

That came from a Croatian sports newspaper that said Serbia and Macedonia games would be in Zagreb (with the Serbia game for home fans only), us and Belgium in Split and the Welsh in a town a few hours drive from Zagreb near the Hungarian border.

I was thinking of taking a villa on the coast. If the game is in Zagreb, do you know what the helicopter hire market is like?
