Return Trip to Fortuna Düsseldorf Planned Monday, 7th Jan 2013 15:13
In the wake of the Fortuna Düsseldorf fans joining the Town support for Saturday’s FA Cup tie at Aston Villa, plans are afoot for a return trip.
Organiser Dave Loudnproud tells us the plan is to take a bus to Fortuna’s home game against FC Nürnberg on Saturday 11th May (KO 3.30pm local time).
The bus will depart the Drum and Monkey on the Friday evening, catching the midnight ferry from Dover. The return ferry will be the 6pm crossing on the Sunday. Full details to be confirmed. The price per head, including matchday ticket, is £90.
Anyone interested should make contact with Dave here as soon as possible. Photos from a previous Fortuna trip can be viewed here.
Very good price have paid more to see Ipswich play away in this country! I sharnt be going this year as I have Exams in may but would be bang up for it in the future. Be nice in a few years time to be able to take a few coaches like they do for us! Great support and very friendly people
You could combine Düsseldorf´s game with a visit of the 2.Bundesliga match between 1.FC Köln and Hertha BSC Berlin, which takes place in nearby Cologne on the following day (Sunday) at 13.30 local time. In both stadiums a really good atmosphere is guaranteed. Just a recommendation.
