UK Dopers & others : Am toying w/ the idea of going to London for the school vacation week in Feb. & was interested in going to a rugby and a football match. I’d be willing to pay around 50-100 bucks for a ticket, I guess. Any general advice? Are tickets hard to get? Will I get the crap beat outta me by hooligans for being a yank or wearing the wrong colors? Does that still go on around matches? (ever since reading Among the Thugs I’ve been a little wary!) Can you just show up at the stadium & find a tout or go to the box office on the day of the game?
Crazy idea or realistic?
Thanks for any insights & advice!
