  • Irish Giants fan travelling over 5,000 miles for the game and ticketless

    Hi All

    If this is the incorrect place to post this in the forums, please feel to remove it.

    As the subject states, I am a huge G-men fan in my 20s from Dublin, Ireland travelling to San Francisco for the weekend for the game.

    My first concern is going ticketless as I have never done this to a sporting event before,

    My primary concern is the hostility and aggression that will be shown to me if I am by myself at the game in my Giants shirt. I have been to soccer matches all over Europe and to a number college and NFL games in America but have always been with someone from the home team.

    My plan for this game was to get a ticket from a scalper on the day and go by myself. After reading about the treatment of Saints fans at the game, I'm having second thoughts about this.

    Is there a group of Giants fans going together that might have a spare ticket that I could purchase?

    Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated

    Thank you

    Shane

    Awesome! Wear the Giants shirt, but be weary. Seems like the 49er fans take their thuggery into the stadium with them. And please post here after the game to let us know how your experience was.

      having done it 5 times ....my only advice is GET YOUR TICKET BEFORE YOU FLY

      Also , dont go alone to away games ........no problem with home games . make sure you go with some Giants fans who you know (or have some aquaintance with )

      Good luck ...i wish i could go ....but i went to the Atlanta game on 8 Jan and im skint now

      regards
      UK
      Winter Is Coming .... Go Giants !

        I would get a ticket off stubhub. I read online someone was arrested for selling counterfeit tickets at the Saints/49ers game.

        Everything I've heard about the people/atmosphere at Candlestick has been terrible. Thugs, degenerates, bandwagon fans. I wouldn't feel comfortable going alone unless you have very thick skin and take these animals getting within 1 inch of your face & not knocking someones teeth out

              On second thought it probably will be pretty entertaining!

              Wear the Jersey proudly. Be aware though San Fransico fans are low life thugs, and do not represent the NFL's best in any way. Hope you have a good time. Go Giants!!!

                Re: Irish Giants fan travelling over 5,000 miles for the game and ticketless

                i was thinking of just going to Aces Bar in San Francisco, which is the NY Giants bar in the city.

                Possibly meeting up with some fellow fans there in the hope of one of them having a spare ticket.

                The more I read up on Candelstick, the more worried I am about going alone

                  Being an Irishman you're tougher than the average fan. I wouldnt worry about the 'thuggery' that goes on in the 9ers preseason games. Those guys are either locked up by now and/or cant afford the $300 playoff tickets.

                  Im sure there will be tons of people smack talking but you'll be fine. My buddy who is a HUGE Giants fan makes the trip up from San Diego every time we play them and he's NEVER had an issue with their fans
                  Come check the G-Fambulance and The Scarf Soldiers every home game in Lot L6, and like us on facebook and instagam 'NYG Scarf Soldiers'

                      My friend. Seriously, get a ticket before you go and DONT let on that you are a Giants fan. These San Francisco fans have a horrible reputation as being a small step above white trash. They are a violent bunch, although as individuals they are *******. I would hate to see anything happen to you.

                        Going alone would be pretty tough. We'll have 2 buses and a tailgate area set up in the parking lot Sunday. If you decide to go and find a ticket stop by. If you decide on Aces Bar get there early and I mean before 11 A.M. early. Its going to be nuts over there.

                          I would contact the Giants. They have a travel program. I remember hearing on the radio that they reserve a certain amount of tickets for away games. I don't want to get your hopes up because it's possible they are sold out but you may be able to get a ticket from them located within an entire section of Giant fans.
