    Staying safe when going to a La Liga game

    Fraught with tension and drama and home to some of the world’s most skilful players, La Liga is one of the world’s premier football leagues. Like most top level football matches, you’re guaranteed a good time when you go to a La Liga game, but there are risks involved and if you’re planning a trip to see Messi in action or Ronaldo showcasing his tricks, it’s worth taking a few safety considerations on board to prevent travel accidents.

    Getting to the game

    In a foreign country, getting around can be slightly more taxing, especially if there’s a language barrier. If you’re travelling in Spain this summer or you’re gearing up for the start of the season, it’s a good idea to do a bit of research before you go, plan your route and take some tips from people who go to games on a regular basis. Often, stadiums are easily accessible via buses, trains and underground services, so don’t worry if you don’t want to hire a car. On game day, bear in mind that stations and bus stops will be busier than normal and give yourself plenty of time to avoid hurrying, which can increase the risk of slips, trips and falls.

    At the stadium

    Stadiums are usually large with lots of narrow passageways and staircases to negotiate, so have your wits about you, watch where you are going and look out for slip and trip hazards, such as spillages and slippery floors by food outlets and bars and litter, clothing and bags between the seats. Keep aisles and stairways clear and take extra care if it is raining or icy. It’s a good idea to wear sturdy, comfortable shoes, which give you some grip.

    Staying safe in a crowd

    La Liga matches tend to be very popular and they draw crowds of thousands of people. When you’re in a crowd on the way to the match, watch what you’re going, avoid using your phone or listening to music and look left and right before crossing the road; it can be easy to just follow the people in front of you, but always wait for traffic signals and don’t cross if there is any risk of a road accident. At the stadium, be patient and check your ticket to find out which entrance you need; take your time, find your seat and then relax and enjoy the game.
