I don't have spares of any of those sadly, although they are all fairly straightforward and appear on ebay now and again, apart from the Malta issue where I understand only 50 copies were printed.

This is my Flikr page on Gibraltar stuff.

I still need tickets from the recent away games in Estonia and Cyprus if anyone can help.

The Scotland, Ireland and Germany aways are all fairly straightforward to pick-up, Georgia isn't too difficult either.

I notice I also have the Belgium edition for the game in Gibraltar. Think will try and get the aways whilst waiting for the homes to turn up. I have managed to locate programmes for sale from all the aways bar 2016 estonia and Portugal and 2015 Croatia I presume these are rare?

Portugal and Croatia homes are difficult to get even for those who attend the games. They are typically VIP/media only.

Estonia normally sell programmes and they are reasonably easy to obtain if you are at the game. There are collectors in that neck of the woods who sell on ebay but maybe were not at this game or got them. There are also still a significant number of collectors of the former Soviet Union countries.

The Estonia issue I obtained by contacting the Estonian FA, it was a laborious process but they came through eventually. I already had a contact at the Croatian FA and he sent me through a few copies which were VIP only, I might have a spare. The Portugal issue I obtained from ebay, only two appeared after the game for sale in France of all places and I managed to get one, their FA were worse than useless at communications and I believe this was also a VIP only issue.

Belgium and Greece up next. The Belgian issue should be similar to the one they issued for the Gibraltar away game (if they have a home and away double header, they cover both games with the programme) and hopefully straightforward to obtain despite it normally being VIP only, the Greeks might be a little more challenging. I know they issue but how easy they are to get hold of I don’t know.

Belgium do a French and a Flemish version of their VIP issues.

Greek programmes are readily available to the fans. I think they are normally free. However they don't seem to appear on ebay that much and can be tricky to obtain.

Gibraltar do have a decent travelling support. It might be worth trying to track down a regular fan and offer them a premium to bring you back a programme and ticket.

Their fans can number upto 200/300 for the big away games like Scotland, Ireland and Germany, I suspect that Belgium might be similar. However for most other games it can number as low as single figures, it’s not the easiest place to travel from to places such as Bosnia, Estonia, even Cyprus and I guess there’s only so many “hard core” prepared to cough up the cash and the time to get to these places out of a population of 30k.

There’s only ever 400/500 who take the time and trouble to get to Faro for “home” games (still a remarkable number for an 8 hour return trip), although the Victoria Stadium should be refurbished in time to host Nations League games by September 2018, which is good news for them.

If you have a spare Croatia away I would be interested. I can get a Belgium one for next season through a contact and should be able to get a Greek one might even be able to get a spare

Sounds like we can sort out a swap in that case, I'll have a look and let you know the spares I have.

My contact in Belgium has told me they stopped issuing programmes so definitely no programme for this game. Seems strange midway through the campaign. I think their neighbours, the Netherlands have done likewise

That confirms what I have just been told by the Belgian FA. Shame, but there you go! Fingers crossed for Greece.

Netherlands no longer issue. However Belgium had been producing a media guide in French and Flemish and this is effectively a programme albeit for media and VIPs only. Has this also stopped?

Gary, according to a contact at the Belgian FA there was no programme for the match. He's been a contact used before so I'm going to assume that he understands that the media guide is classed as a programme.

Also, none have appeared yet on ebay which is unusual as Belgian sellers as you know are usually on the ball. So maybe another programme issuing FA has bitten the dust along with the Dutch.
