Thanks, but I looked there, but with 3000 fans, I don't think they will all travel with EZY or 6G, unless they take out all the seats and make sure they all sit on top of each other and on the wing, lol.

Just as an addendum to this, we (Northwest Airlines) diverted one of our DC10's into CWL today - NWA44 Minneapolis-Gatwick. Gatwick was down to around 250 metres RVR and had long holds / this flight didn't have much holding fuel due to the fog being far worse than originally forecast. Anyway, it was aircraft 1233 - N233nw. It landed at 0750z and was airborne again shortly after 10z. Captain said that the handling by Aviance was very good, despite the extra flights. We have used CWL before for diversions and have always had good service. Nice to see it so busy with the semi-finals.

Ryanair will be operating an additional flight on 3rd May from DUB to LPL for the Liverpool v Chelsea match.

Sevenair,

Most of the charters can be booked at Dawson and Sanderson and probably Hoppaway Travel or Newcastle United travel.

I wish I saw that, the DC-10-30 is my favourite aircraft and the only ones I ever get to see are when I'm at LGW
