I hope not - would be a great experience for any side playing in Belgrade. I guess it depends on if Red Star foot the travel bill.

Great city and now the Serbian RL own / run a city center hotel /hostel to house visiting teams.

I don't know the answer to this one, but I wonder whether Red Star Belgrade's facilities were tested at the recent Under-19s tour. I'm guessing that their home ground was used in the competition.

Anyone know if there are restrictions on their entry i.e. they have to play all games away until they reach a certain round.

Think it will be in uk

I think that sort of behaviour would probably warrant a red card, at least a sin-binning anyway.

The player would play on until half time and come out for the second half stitched up and a bandage.....

Depends on which team you play for.

Guardian now reporting they will start in Third Round alongside League 1 clubs, and will play away from home.

Seems a bit ambitious, but I guess we will see if they are up to scratch.

Shame it’s only away from home but it’s a start.

BBC reporting that a 3rd round entry along with League 1 clubs is likely, no mention of whether the game would be played in the UK

Hopefully the novelty value will generate some much needed headlines in the UK mainstream media for the Challenge Cup.

Given the historical nature and the publicity, maybe Red Star Belgrade’s game will get a BBC Red Button airing.

Their soccer club counterparts have made it back into the big time of Champions League group action and will be playing Liverpool soon both home and away.

Now that they are getting sorted who is entering maybe they'll get around to announcing when and where the final is so that those of us who run trips can get them arranged.

A hostel?

Knowing Hull's luck with injuries we will get drawn away there in the quarters.

It still can't be any more dangerous for us than that Fev game though.

I would say it has to happen, as they can hopefully get a Serbian broadcaster on board sharing the footage but with their own local language commentary team.

Let me think...

Given they show Serbian league football (featuring Red Star) and Adriatic League basketball (featuring Red Star), the chance to make some history with the first big time RL TV broadcast in Serbia would sound like a good opportunity, no?

Belgrade? Never heard of it, and i've been the length of breadth of the M62 hundreds of times. What junction number is it?

It better not be in bloody Cumberland. I'm not going there again. That Lake District is just a poor man's Pennines
