Graz AK v Middlesbrough: Latest news

Last updated : 14 January 2005 By Reggie Holdsworth
The kick-off was planned for 8.45pm local time, but at the reaquest of Graz it has been brought forward to 7.30pm local time, that's 6.30pm in the UK.

The date was in doubt after Graz applied to UEFA to change the date of the game, due to a clash with Rapid Vienna. However the Rapid game has been scheduled (and always was) for the Wednesday so there is no problem.

According to the Graz AK official website Boro have requested 1500 tickets, with a further 1000 in reserve.

It goes on to say that Boro will arrive a day before the match and train at the Arnold Schwarzenegger Stadion on Wednesday evening at 7pm. Boro will also wear their away kit for the first time in Europe.

Boro have now confirmed the date and kick-off time but details of ticket and travel arrangements are still to be announced.
