Supporters planning to travel to France for the UEFA EURO 2025 Qualifying game against Republic of Ireland should take note of the below information.

The first game in Group A3 for Eileen Gleeson's squad takes place in Metz and there is a limited allocation of tickets available for visiting supporters.

 

TICKETS
Ireland supporters can purchase tickets by clicking here and using the code MetzIrishFans2024

Tickets are priced at €10 or €7 for restricted view tickets. All tickets will be handled by stadium officials and the French Football Federation.

 

TRAVEL
The nearest International airport with direct flights from Dublin is Luxembourg Airport. Bus 29 or 223 from Luxembourg Airport to Luxembourg Gare and then the TER train to Metz appears to be the best route via public transport. This train takes less than an hour to reach Metz Station.  

The various Paris airports also are an option. The SNCF app will help to book trains to Metz from anywhere in France. If flexible on time, then OUIGO trains can be a much cheaper alternative but options are often limited to one train per day.

 

STADIUM
The game will be played in the Stade Saint-Symphorien stadium home stadium of FC Metz, 3 Boulevard Saint-Symphorien, Longeville-lès-Metz, Grand Est, 57050, France.

The stadium is located in the south-west of the city on the west bank of the River Moselle. It is a 15 minute walk from the main railway station. It is also reached by Bus 11 (every 30 minutes) runs from rue François de Curel opposite Metz station to Palais des Sports (journey time 12mins, direction Félix Maréchal), via the central hub of République.

 

LOCAL SUPPORT
The emergency number in France is 112.

It is recommended to have a scan (screenshot) of your passport on your mobile phone and in your email - just in case it gets lost or stolen. This will aid the process of having replacement travel documents issued.  

The Irish Embassy is located at 12, Avenue Foch, (entrance 4 rue Rude) 75116 Paris. The public counter is open from 09:30 - 11:30, Monday to Friday.  

Consular assistance in the Irish embassy in Paris has an emergency voicemail that is monitored frequently. Call +33 1 44176700
