FK Vllaznia Shkodér supprters going to Euro 2016

With memories of the golden years (80's) of the albanian football still fresh on her mind, Albania is now attempting to recreate its strong football legacy. As young players start making their names abroad, the future is looking bright for Albanian football!

FK Vllaznia Shkodér supprters going to Euro 2016

Thu Jun 09, 2016 8:13 pm

Hi guys,

I'm a Sligo Rovers supprter from Ireland heading to support my nation in France tomorrow. As it happens I will also be supporting your countries debut in the tournament travelling to watch the game against Romania in Lyon. As I stated am a Sligo Rovers supporter who would love to meet up with anyone from Shkodér who is going out. When we played each other in 2009 in Eurpoa league qualifiers I met my current wife and although I would have loved to swap jerseys with one of you guys at our game I did not want to part with my only Rovers jersey in the bag. So if one of you wishes to swap jerseys with me I will brng the jersey from that year for you if you do same or bring me a jersey from your club. It is for framing, so how old or worn it s I do not mind if you do not same. I apologise for using the language forced on us by the english many years ago but my Albanian would not do your country proud and you'll struggle to understand "mo Gaeilge". Hope this finds you well and your looking forward to your trip like I am. Aaron Costello, Sligo Rovers and Ireland Football.

Welcome to the forum buddy. I believe there will be many Vllaznia fans going to the Euros but I doubt any of the members here going there are from Shkoder. I think you'll most likely have a better chance if you go to the Vllaznia Facebook page.

I'll be there as well for the Romania game. Wishing the best of luck to Ireland, you guys have some of the best fans in the world.

Cheers!

Respect to you Aaron. Officially Ultras Vllaznia didn't say anything about travelling to France, in fact since 4 - 5 years they are less and less years after years, you have more chance to find normal Vllaznia fans that live in Western Countries than real Ultras from Shkoder city. Only Plisat from Prishtina and Shvercerat from Shkup are travelling. I wish you luck in finding it.

Not me guys I was in seat 87, Row 13, Block 423A Gate L. I sat beside an Albanian supporter who made his way from London where he lives and shared a fantastic win for your country until the very early hours in the center of Lyon. It is a memory that will live with me forever and a night I was glad to say I witnessed your first ever win at the Euro's. I returned home today emtionally and physically drained and hurting still after yesterday but with a lot of pride in our young team and how we coped with everything with a smile on our face and some talented football. Your display of balls and guts against Romania got the deserved result and maybe this tournament showed the big guns that, the smaller nations bring a pride very difficult to get the better of.
