Hajduk away guide

Monday 16 September 2002

The ground is situated approximately 15 minutes walk from the city centre, is close to the sea and can be seen clearly on the approach to Split from the airport.

The capacity of the ground is 33,000 for UEFA matches, and Fulham supporters will be located in Section A, which is fully segregated and is in one corner of the ground.

The capacity of Section A is 1,200, and tickets will be on sale from the turnstiles from 2 hours before kick-off. Fulham have no tickets to sell through our ticket office, so all supporters will need to buy their tickets at the ground.

Hajduk have still not confirmed the kick-off time, as they are in negotiations with television companies, but the provisional kick-off time is 8.00pm local time.

Tickets are all priced at 60 Kuna, which is approximately £6. Supporters should expect to be searched by stewards at the turnstiles, but their ground regulations are similar to ours in terms of what you can and can't take into the stadium.

The section of the ground has basic toilet and refreshment facilities, and has a high fence in front of it to prevent spectators encroaching on to the pitch. Fans are a long way back from the pitch as it is surrounded by a small moat and an eight-lane athletics track.

Supporters should expect to remain in the stadium for approximately 30 minutes after the end of the match to allow home supporters to disperse.

On a general note, supporters travelling out for the match with UK or EC passports do not need a visa as long as it is just for a short visit.

Credit cards are widely accepted, and Sterling can be changed out there for local currency (Kunas) or cash withdrawal cards used at banks. There are plenty of street-side bars in the town centre so supporters arriving early will find no shortage of places to eat and drink.

The exchange rate is currently between 10-11 Kuna for the pound. The advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office is that you should carry your passport at all times, as you must be able to show some form of identification if required.
