Dear fellows,

I'm writing here in English and opening a new topic, so in event that this is against the policy or moderation rules, please advise, but I felt it is inappropriate to write in English on your other topic for this game.

In the great anticipation of the upcoming game, we have seen some unfair conditions, as there is a great deal of interest from Partizan fans that are interested to come and watch the game in Hague, but some are simply giving up, because AZ made it impossible to purchase the tickets for the game to the away fans. We have written to the Club, but they told us to speak with Partizan instead, but there the doors are closed.

So question to you, regardless of the rivalry and that yes, Partizan is coming to win the game and make our chances to top the Group slightly bigger, and yes, AZ will play to finish the job - is there some way that tickets can be purchased in Alkmaar locally. What we heard is that one needs to hold a season ticket and have to be registered to be in position to buy the ticket?

A group of us has been in Alkmaar in 2015 on your Stadium and that was an awesome experience.

Same thing as with the Man U-game. There is no point in coming to The Hague without a valid ticket. There is a 100%check on ticket and ID. Names have to match, also for AZ-fans. There is a lot of police to prevent any problems and they can arrest anyone in the area with a special order by the mayor of The Hague. The chance of getting into the stadium if you are not an registered AZ-fan is basically 0%. So don't spend your money on the black market (if there is any), cause the ticket is probably fake and even with a valid ticket you still won't get in if your not the original buyer.

Thanks for quick reply. The problem that we are facing is fact that Partizan has got some tickets, but since we have at least three fractions at war against each other, only one took all the tickets for the away fans and they are impossible to get, unless you are affiliated with that particular group. Because of that, it has put the pressure on everyone else who wants to attend, making it impossible due limited tickets.

Is there a chance to enroll with AZ, buy the season ticket and then purchase the ticket itself for the game. I know it can be costly, but what other options are there?

No, anyone who was not a seasonticketmember before this season was not allowed to buy any tickets. They closed all the loopholes for this one. There were no English supporters in the home-stands against Man U, and they were willing to spend or do anything for a ticket.

Wow! That's quite reactive... When Man Utd played Partizan in Belgrade, there has been almost a thousands of Englishmen. Yes, they are not some notorious hool firm, but still there are these viewpoints on Serbia all around. Nevertheless, it was a spectacle and went pretty fine. I simply don't get why AZ does not want to make more room for whoever really, as it's played in Hague and against Astana they say it was 6000/15k which makes it almost 1/3 of capacity.

So if I understood you correctly, even if there would be some kind gentlemen to buy tickets on behalf, not going to the Game themselves, they would check an identity of every attendee? That seems like an organizational overkill...

The Hague (ADO) has a history of hooliganism, so they took every securitymeasure in their stadium. Every person is checked on ID, ticket and then searched. You may even be interviewed, if you don't speak Dutch with the correct dialect their alarms will go off. The Mayor of The Hague is in charge as they are the host. They want to avoid any risk, even if the result is that AZ is unable to sell half the tickets they potentially could.

Yeah, seems quote understandable, but still... Thanks for the clarification on the matter! If some opportunity arises, or there is some info, we'll see how it would play out. AZ has quite strong team this season and you played quite remarkable first 20 minutes in Belgrade.
