Arsenal are set to travel to Vorskla Poltava at the end of November and the club have announced that they have been allocated 800 tickets for the game in the Ukraine and the price of them are just £8.00 each! But even at that price it is unlikely that we will sell the full allocation .
But of course that is only half the story. It is only a three and a half hour direct flight, but if you fancied driving you would have 1500 miles to contend with, going through Belgium, Germany and Poland before arriving in the Ukraine, and the petrol would cost a lot more than the price of an air ticket, which is available right now for that day at around 150 quid, which makes it very attractive indeed if you fancy seeing Arsenal play over in Poltava for the first time ever.
Thursday 29th November 2018
Kick Off: 17:55 UK
To be played at Oleksiy Butovsky Vorskla Stadium, Ukraine
Vorskla gave Sporting Lisbon a hard game over there with the Portugese side losing right up until the 89th minute so it won’t be easy for us, especially as we are likely to play reserves as we have the crucial North London derby coming up just three days later.
But by then we should have already qualified for the knockouts (definitely if we win in Lisbon next Thursday, so whatever team Emery puts out should not be under too much pressure to get the win, so the team and the fans can just enjoy themselves!
PS Beer is around 50p a pint on average! Worth a trip?
