That's a Tuesday. I was told 14th as that's a Saturday.

Could be wrong though.

What an away day this would be.

At tonight's forum, somebody asked if Mary was running a coach. :lol: What a coup for the club, not sure how we pulled that off.

I'm not sure there'll be enough demand for a coach to the Arena.

It’s actually Saturday July 14th. Not confirmed yet as we need to get the finances sorted. Hopefully this comes off, what a trip that would be.

I decided to give it a rest, that's not to say it won't return sometime in the distant future. :thumbup:

Stop trying to change the subject.

Flew into Eindhoven on my way to watch NAC Breda this season.Breda is not far and a cracking place. Eindhoven looked good for the short time I was there.

Where did the info about this game come from, the fans forum?

How the hell has this potential game come about?! Does tommy have some sort of link with PSV?
Why do one of the top clubs in Holland want to play a conference north team??!

Darlington playing a team top of the eredivise as a pre-season friendly? Erm, what? How?? I really want to know who's sorting this because they deserve absolutely immense credit.

Yes TW and DJ both mentioned it when talking about our pre=season schedule. TW joked that he didn't want it announced before the club had bought plane tickets or fans would snap up seats and put up the prices. We are also soon going to announce a couple of big home friendlies, but those clubs need to announce the fixture to their fans first or at the same time.

Weekend away in Eindhoven sounds good to me. Been to Amsterdam Arena and Feyenoord before but never been to Eindhoven.

Not just exciting for us fans, but may also influence young prospects thinking of signing for the club. Great evidence of our ambitions and connections, helluva coup - well done TW! :clap:

Should this game get the green light how many would travel should a coach be made available. Before any decision is made about getting a coach sorted be helpful for organisers knowing number's

Would be surprised if the game was on at the main place but the stadium for Jong PSV looks a good one.

Little tip (and apologies for those who know this): some airlines (and possibly some hotel chains) operate dynamic pricing where the prices change, sometimes by the minute, depending on demand or interest. So if you go to easyjet to check a price but don’t buy your tickets there and then, clear your cookies and browsing history before you go back to the site at a later date or else they will remember your previous visit and know you are interested. If a number of other people are looking at similar flights at similar times/dates the prices will go up.

I am guessing it is Tommy who is the person who arranged this given Jong PSV played in a Nuneaton pre-season tournament last year - http://www.nuneatontownfc.com/calendar/ ... ent-342797

Sounds good but I'm sure I'm not the only one that thinks the money would be better used elsewhere. Doing boost the budget but then using money whether its from sponsorship or not to play against a PSV junior team.
