So this year HJK visit North Wales, hopefully it will be an easy passage into the next round.

I have never visited Bangor - I hope my girlfriend will allow me to go there!!!

Don't forget your swimming trunks - Bangor is by the sea  8)

"Due to UEFA's stadium criteria Bangor City cannot play 'home games' at their home ground, Farrar Road Stadium, so currently play at Wrexham's ground the Racecourse Ground."

The Wikipedia information about the stadium is interesting. On the current inforamtion page of the Bangor Website there is no mention of the Wrexham ground. But in the match reports section of the website, it shows that they played Honka last season in Wrexham.

  • Forza HJK!
UEFA regulations for CL requires a category 2 stadium for CL 1st & 2nd qualifying rounds, which means minimum of 1500 seats and no standing room, while Farrar Road has only 700 seats out of its capacity of 1500.

Meanwhile Bangor City will visit its third city in our capital region, after playing Honka both in Vantaa last year and in their home town of Espoo the year before. Regular visitor, eh?

I have contacted Bangor City officials and they are very happy of our arrival. We can buy match tickets in outskirts of
Bellevue Stadium before match. And they may sell Bangor Scarfs et .all other fan stuff. We all could gather together
before match near Bbelevue and try to catch mr Gwynfor Jones, Bangor City Secretary.

Me and Anne are coming to Rhyl by National Express Coach bus, starting at 14:00 Norton Street. About 1 h 40 min trip
along Merseyside and Wales coasts and ends to Robin Hood resorts in in Rhyl coast side. And costs only 10 € each. 

So we could meet Darren in Rhyl round 16:00   :beer: :forza:
