The 12th Man Guide - Northern Ireland v San Marino

Download our pre-match 12th Man Guide for the fixture which includes a message from the manager, information on travel, tickets and entry to the stadium!

This Saturday will see the official opening of the new National Football Stadium at Windsor Park and we want you, the best fans in the world, to play your part by being in the stadium from 6:30pm to help us celebrate the occasion.

To mark the opening, we have asked some famous Northern Ireland faces from sport, tv and music to do a lap of the pitch, each accompanied by a special guest from the football family.

Well known fans like Carl Frampton, Jimmy Nesbitt and Gary Lightbody will be joined by supporters from across the generations, captains of our various men’s and women’s teams, as well as representatives from our Elite Development programme, Club NI.

Following the lap of legends the stadium will be opened by two very special guests.

It will be a fantastic occasion for Northern Ireland fans and a great way to warm up for the match against San Marino!
