FAQs

Will the stadiums be open in 2021/22? At what capacity?

Homefans believe that stadiums will be open to fans, however we cannot at this stage confirm what the capacity will be.  However our flexible booking policies mean that if the stadium will only accept 50% fans and you decide you only want to travel with 100% attendance you can swap to another venue or another date.

Will I need to prove I am vaccinated? Or show a negative test?

This will vary destination to destination and based on your nationality and age. Therefore Homefans are not able to advise on this.  Please check the foreign ministry of your destination and home country and the stadium requirements.  Again, if you find the requirements too much you can defer to later in the season/year when they relax further.

COVID-19 hasn’t gone away- should I still book?

We believe so, we all need something to look forward to.  But we understand that people may be apprehensive which is why we have created a flexible cancellation policy which means in the event that the event does not happen the amount paid simply becomes Homefans credit. 

 

You can transfer this to a later date (with no time limit), transfer to another tour, or even give it to a friend. This flexibility also applies if you decide to cancel for any reason (as long as you give us 45 days notice)

Do I have to pay the full amount when I book?

No, you can secure your place with a deposit of just 30%, then pay the balance at least 4 weeks before your trip date depending on your destination.

Where in the stadiums will we be sitting?

If we know where you will be sitting we always mention this is in the inclusions section.

 

Unfortunately we are not always able to tell you that at the time of booking, however our destination managers work tirelessly to make sure you get the best seats. We always aim for the long side of the home supporters section.

How many people will be on the tour?

The maximum number of people the host will allow is stated above. However this number may not always be met and it may even be possible that your party is on the tour on your own. Higher numbers make for a more sociable experience, lower numbers make for more personalised attention from your host. Look at it as a win/win!

Can children / young adults join the tour?

If we can accept children there will be an option in the booking flow. However for many trips our local hosts take the decision, based on the content of the tour, to open this up to adults only. If you are looking to travel with under 18’s, please feel free to contact us and we can discuss your options.

Can you cater to dietary needs or requirements?

Our local hosts will do everything they can to cater to travellers’ needs. It’s a good idea to share your requirements at the time of booking so that our host is able to make the required preparations

Will I have to share a room?

In order to keep the costs low we always offer prices based on 2 sharing. If you make a booking for an odd number of people you or another member of your party may be paired with another traveller of the same sex. If you wish you may pay a supplement for a guaranteed single room. Simply make your booking as normal and get in touch with us to arrange this.

Celtic 4 Rangers 0 Sept 2022

Wow. What a weekend. Celtic battered Rangers 4-0 and scored three times at our end. Paradise indeed!! Lindsay was a top host, she KNOWS everything that matters about the Bhoys in green & white. Lindsay organised getting us on the stadium tour on Sunday morning. Another wow! Hotel was excellent and perfectly located (near Central Station so we saw Pollock v Leith on Friday night). We wpuld recommend this intense experience to any real football fan.

Brilliant Trip

I couldn't recommend enough! The host Lindsay was superb and had a great knowledge of the club and Scottish football. On day 1, we were took to the 'non-league' Celtic to see the St Roch's play. It was a great experience and there was a brilliant atmosphere and community feel. Following that, we were took for food round the west end then a scoot round the underground to city centre to see some of the local celtic bars. That was a great night! The matchday experience was unbelievable. While Celtic could only draw, the atmosphere of derby day was something to behold. We were also gifted a scarf and a hat which was a nice touch. Would definitely recommend and would definitely go again!

Glasgow Derby Semi Final Celtic vs Rangers

What a phenomenal trip (except the result). Our host Lindsay was brilliant she was friendly and really knowledgeable about the Scottish game. The Maldron was a brilliant hotel very central couldn’t complain good breakfast which was included in the deal. First night we all went to a pub near the hotel the two other lads and Lindsay what a laugh we had couldn’t of ask for a better bunch. The atmosphere at the game was amazing, you have to experience a Celtic vs Rangers game nothing like it. Shame about the result but Lindsay and the two lads we met made the weekend for us. This was our second trip with HomeFans definitely will be booking another trip soon plus the whole package was value for money. Thanks for the Scarfs and Hats Homefans

Celtic v Rangers - Scottish Cup Semi @Hampden

Had an amazing trip. Everything (apart from the result) was just about perfect. Our local guide - Lindsay - was an absolute star. Went above and beyond, even taking me to the Partick game on the Saturday (not included in the original itinerary). Super knowledgeable and friendly. There were 3 other people in the group and I could not have wished for a better bunch to watch my first Glasgow derby with. We just clicked immediately and all had a great time. Hotel (Maldron) was spot on. When you add up all the various components of the weekend it is really good value. It was my first trip with Homefans and will definitely be using them again for season 2022/23.

Glasgow Derby - Celtic v Rangers - Scottish Cup Semi Final

First time booking with Home Fans and the only negative was the result of the game. Our local host Lindsay was super friendly and took the group of 4 to a nice pub on the Saturday where we all had a great craic, as we say here in Dublin. The Maldron Hotel was perfectly situated too and was good accommodation. Breakfast was included too. On arrival to the hotel I received my match ticket and a Celtic Hat and Scarf which was cool. Match Day we went to a hardcore Celtic pub then off to the game. A bucket list match, incredible atmosphere, the best I've experienced. I found the trip great value. The social aspect of it is something you can't put a price on. I got very lucky with the three guys I met on the trip and of course our wonderful host Lindsay. 5 stars. Will be booking again for sure.

Great experience with a friendly local!

This was my first time booking through Homefans and I will definitely book there again next time. We were supposed to go during the new years eve, but because of COVID-19 the match was postponed. We have been kept very well informed during the certain days. Once in Glasgow, we also visited another match on the advice of Homefans (Patrick Thistle against Ayr). A very nice old stadium with only room for 10.000 people. On matchday we had an awesome local that also took us to the pubs. She knew so much about the history of Celtic. And then the derby... Celtic won with 3-0 against Rangers, it was a madhouse! What an experience and what a great trip. I'll definitely go back to Scotland one day.

One of the best trips so far!

Our weekend to Glasgow was really great! The Old Firm was a game that we really wanted to visit. And the atmosphere was amazing. But also the city of Glasgow is really nice and thanks to our Homefans guide we had a fantastic weekend!
