To avoid crowding at the entrances to the stadium, Maccabi Tel Aviv fans are requested to get to tonight's Champions League qualifier against Gyori FC as early as possible

One day before Maccabi Tel Aviv's first official home match of the 2013/14 season, most of the club's ten thousand season ticket holders have collected their tickets at the ticket booths at Groningen Park next to Bloomfield Stadium. With so many fans coming tomorrow to cheer their beloved Maccabi Tel Aviv on in their ever so important Champions League qualifier against Gyori FC, it's likely to be a busy afternoon and evening at the ticket offices and in the entire area surrounding Bloomfield Stadium. In addition, due to the introduction of the new "smart card" system, entrance to the stadium is likely to take longer than is usually the case. So to avoid crowding at the entrances to the stadium, Maccabi Tel Aviv fans who have not yet collected their season tickets are requested to do so either this evening (ticket booths are open till 9pm) or sometime during the morning tomorrow starting at 9am. And for fans coming to see the match, be sure to arrive before the kick-off at 9.30pm. At the stadium's new electronic gates, season ticket holders will be able place their "smart card" in the appropriate place and a green light will indicate identification and entrance to the terraces.

After it was decided to open gate 4 for Maccabi Tel Aviv fans, non-season ticket holders will also have the opportunity to purchase tickets for tomorrow night's match.
