More about our football trips
Sure, it can be nice to sink down in front of the TV to watch a good football match - right? But being part of where it really happens is a completely different thing…
The experience begins long before kick-off: in a bar in Valencia, a neighbourhood restaurant in Rome or a bierstube in Munich. Maybe you don’t understand everything that the locals say but don’t worry about that, the excitement of a pre-match atmosphere is universal. The tension builds as you join the queue at the entrance to one of Europe's great football stadiums. Pass through the turnstiles with your ticket and you're there, right in the heart of the action. Packed stands, magnificent tifos and great anticipation!
See the stars live!
It’s the real thing. Now there’s no TV producer who cuts away from the action and decides what you should and shouldn’t see. From the stands, you can follow everything with your own eyes. See the stars ‘for real’, study the coaches' body language up close.
The home team score, and the stadium explodes! You get a bear hug from the unknown supporter next to you and are dragged into a deafening storm of enjoyment. After the final whistle, you are almost exhausted from all the experiences. But you’re still ready for a beer or two and a post-match discussion!
Packages and tickets
Santiago Bernabéu, Camp Nou, San Siro, or any of Europe's major venues - there's such a huge choice of places to go although making it happen can be quite difficult. Nickes.Com can ensure you get a ticket and a good hotel and all the backing and support you need to have a great trip. What are you waiting for? Get up from the couch and watch football for real! A football trip gives memories for life! However, we must issue a warning: it quickly becomes very addictive…
Football trips to Spain
In terms of quality, La Liga is probably the world's best football league. During a football trip to Spain you are guaranteed extraordinary experiences both on and off the pitch. Enjoy Barcelona's tiki-taka football at the mythical Camp Nou, see the white giants of Real Madrid at the mighty Santiago Bernabéu - or experience a colourful Andalusian derby between arch-rivals Sevilla and Real Betis. The climate, the food and the friendly people are other factors that make Spain a perfect football country!
Football trips to Germany
Football trips to the Bundesliga have become increasingly popular over the past decade and that’s no surprise. The Bundesliga has the biggest crowds in Europe and the atmosphere at matches is always amazing. The stadiums in Germany are mainly modern and built for football, that means spectator facilities and pitch views are excellent. The matches are one big party where the beer is flowing. In Germany, they have succeeded in preserving and even refining the standing culture without compromising safety. Standing in or near the Yellow Wall at Borussia Dortmund's giant cauldron Signal Iduna Park is at the top of many football fans' wish lists.
Football trips to Italy
Football crazy Italy is perfectly suited for exploring on your own. Nowhere else is football so passionately enjoyed and so deeply rooted in a country’s culture as in Italy. The matches are characterised by colourful displays in the stands and are often preceded by extensive analysis both in the media and at the espresso bars. Juventus, Milan and Inter have the best arenas, but the tension of a Rome derby at the Stadio Olimpico is a must to experience at least once in a lifetime.
Football trips around Europe
Perhaps you want to try football away from the bright lights in a different country? Maybe you are keen to sample some action in the summertime, in Sweden or Norway. Would you like to travel to eastern Europe and see some famous old club names compete in Poland or the Czech Republic? Nickes.Com can try to create that extra special trip for you.
Of course, Nickes.Com can also arrange trips to the big European matches where you get to see the best clubs and the biggest stars compete. We sell packages and tickets to most matches in the Champions League and Europa League and can also help with sought-after tickets to the finals. A European Cup night at, for example, the Camp Nou or San Siro can be pure magic and you can often find slightly cheaper airline tickets when you travel in the middle of the week making the trip more affordable.
