Gibraltar FA look to move ‘home’ games to London

THE Gibraltar FA are considering playing their three remaining ‘home’ Euro 2016 qualification games in London next year.

Gibraltar’s first competitive fixture was played in Portugal last month, where just 2,000 people witnessed their 7-0 thumping at the hands of Poland.

Gibraltar have been forced to play their qualification games away from the Rock as work continues on Victoria Park.

Tax issues in Portugal have meant the footballing minnows are now considering other options, with London looking a likely frontrunner.

Gibraltar FA president Desmond Reoch said that talks on a potential move are ongoing and a switch to a venue in London is under consideration for his country’s games with Ireland, Scotland and Germany.

He said: “We’re considering the situation and we’re hoping to make a decision on it very soon.

“No decision has been made yet – we hope to have one well before Christmas.”
