Supporter info: Istanbul Basaksehir (A)11 February 2022
Following confirmation on Tuesday evening, supporters can make their own way to the stadium. Free buses will also be available to Hearts fans:
The club has arranged, at its own cost, for buses to transport all away supporters to and from the stadium. The meeting point for buses to the stadium is Taksim Gezi Park and buses will depart at 3.30pm local time. Click here to view on maps. The meeting point and departure time has been determined by local police and the club is unable to make changes to this schedule.
We have been advised that there will be two ticket check points on the approach to the stadium so we need to allow plenty of time for ticket checks and other security procedures ahead of the 6.30pm kick-off, hence the 3.30pm departure time of the buses.
We are aware that some supporters have already arranged their own buses to and from the stadium. If you have a bus arranged please contact our Supporter Liaison Officer (SLO) by email at SLO@homplc.co.uk so we can provide the details to the Turkish Authorities.
It is also important to be aware that the Turkish Authorities have a zero-tolerance approach to all pyrotechnics. Anyone caught in possession or using them with them will face arrest, a fine of at least €300 and be banned from travelling to Turkey in the future.
Please note Hearts supporters will remain in the stadium for 15-30 minutes after the full-time whistle to allow home supporters to disperse first. Buses will then return all Hearts supporters to Taksim Gezi Park.
Please take time to read the following information:
If you have any questions please contact our SLO Stuart Craig by emailing SLO@homplc.co.uk
We wish you a safe and enjoyable trip to Istanbul and look forward to seeing you all there.
