Join us on tour to watch the FC Sheriff Tiraspol vs Real Madrid match at FC Sheriff Stadium in Tiraspol, Transnistria – an unrecognised breakaway republic.
Our FC Sheriff Tiraspol vs Real Madrid tour starts in Chisinau, the capital of Moldova, which is well connected by flights from many countries across Europe and elsewhere. On the first night of the tour we’ll show you the nightlife of Chisinau and you’ll stay overnight at a classic Soviet hotel built during the time of the USSR.
The following day our YPT guide will take you across into Transnistria – the most notorious unrecognised country in Europe, and perhaps the world. Transnistria is trapped in the style of the Soviet Union since a brutal civil war with Moldova during the collapse of the USSR.
On our first day in Tiraspol we’ll explore all the must-see sights of the capital, Transnistria. This includes the old Soviet flea market, the 25th October military parade street, the university campus, parliament building, lots of Lenin statues and more!
Later that evening will be the main highlight of the entire tour – watching FC Sheriff Tiraspol vs Real Madrid live at Sheriff Stadium. We’ll then take to the streets to mingle with the locals, enjoy dinner and experience the nightlife.
Group A members will head back to Chisinau and conclude the tour. For those who want to explore more of this rebel state you may continue on with our Group B option and visit two forgotten Soviet nuclear bunkers (only three in the entire world!), a gypsy town, and Bender – the second largest city of Transnistria where the civil war hit the hardest and bullet holes can still be found on most buildings.
The tour cost includes your football ticket for this incredibly unique football match. Don’t miss out – book early!
