Yeah, watching Oaks' trip these days made me already regret that most likely I won't be able to make it (kid coming).

Calling all Romanians! I'm going to Bucharest with my girlfriend from 23rd to 25th June and have a few questions! Firstly, where can I get an official Romania rugby shirt from? Somewhere central/close to the old town would be great! Also, how much will a ticket for the Brazil match be, what time is KO likely to be, how much for a ticket and is the stadium easy to get to? I'm trying to convince my girlfriend to go! Also, any other recommendations? I'm looking forward to visiting your city, it looks awesome!

The store of Arc of Triumph stadium (FRR HQ) is 30 minutes away from Old City, by subway and walking but it is opened only until 17:00 in week-days. You can find this small store on the entrance from Marasti Bldv . If you make it to the game it will be a caravan store inside the stadium. There isn't any other store closer to old city but stadium area is one of the best areas in Bucharest, close to the center and worth a visit especially if you wanna see this museum.

Also, how much will a ticket for the Brazil match be, what time is KO likely to be, how much for a ticket and is the stadium easy to get to?


You'll find tickets between 7 and 20 pounds (roughly). I suggest the later since you will have covered stands at the main stand and late June sun is strong. Match KO at 19:00. From Old City is very easy to make it to stadium, 10 minutes walking slow from hotel to subway, 3-4 subway station to Aviatorilor metro station (depending what station from Old City is closer from your hotel) than 10 minutes walking beside main entrance of the biggest park of Bucharest in Arch of Triumph direction and you'll be at stadium. Really easy, no worries. Inside the stadium will be beer and grilled stuff available

I'm trying to convince my girlfriend to go!


Maybe this will convince her, Bucharest have one of the lowest street crime and probably the lowest violent crime rates but be aware of pickpockets in crowded areas. Bucharest is surprisingly safe.

Ferentari is so badly linked with center and other areas that you must be very unfortunate and confused to reach it. I think I made it into the area only once and I live in Bucharest since 1996. However, to say that it's one of the most extreme favellas in the world is an exaggeration. It is just a very poor area with lot of socially disadvantaged people that no one bothered to clean it.

Ferentari is still better than most of the London suburbs mate, Bucharest is a VERY safe city.

Thanks for all the great info amz and others! I'll be sure to PM you if I have any other questions. And I'm sure I'll manage to avoid Ferentari ;)

Tickets for Brazil match are for sale:
https://frr.ro/2017/06/13/vino-alaturi- ... -cu-boala/

There are 3 categories:
150 RON (aprox. 28 pounds) -> main stand + catering which means all you can eat , first course, main course, desert and drinks (beer, wine, spirits)
75 RON (aprox. 15 pounds) -> main stand ; grilled food (sausages, meatballs) and beer to buy available in all areas
55 RON (aprox. 11 pounds) -> second stand
35 RON (aprox. 7 pounds) -> behind the posts stand

All gate income will be donated to a young rugby player who needs money for a cancer treatment, same as happened with gate income from Super Liga finals.

Rumors about Super Liga:
Timisoara looks to sign William Helu, Tudore Bratu (Dinamo, Oaks' SH) and an Aussie coach.

Saracens announced a pre-season match vs Timisoara on 25.08.2017:

Baia Mare transfer listed Luke Samoa, this is an odd one:
