If you are going to watch your club play, bear in mind :

  • You don’t need a visa to enter Switzerland, Denmark, Austria or Romania, but your passport must be valid for the duration of your stay.

  • Remember to take out some travel insurance even if you’re only going for one night - if you get into difficulties it could save you a lot of money!

  • See our travel advice by country for information on local laws and customs.

  • There may be additional regulations in force on match days and in the vicinity of the stadium. These may include restrictions on where alcohol can be consumed. If in doubt, check with local police or tourist authorities.

  • Crowds in and around football stadiums can attract pickpockets. Take care to safeguard your possessions in crowded areas.
