What are the facilities than I will gain If I become an official member ? Knowing that I Live in Egypt
It gives many facilities for German people But what does it offers significantly to the International fans ?

Also I have a lifetime dream to visit Munich and visit our club,our stadium and all of our team landmarks :) If being an official member can help me in that (In gaining the Visa to visit Munich through the embassy as usually they requires an official document for the reason for your visit to Germany) ??

Theoretically, you can order tickets once you're a member. In reality however, you have to be a member for about 5 years before you're lucky enough to be alloted tickets through the ballot. You also get a magazine sent to you every home match day - whether it actually arrives abroad is questionable though (they didn't bother sending it to me when I lived overseas and I frequently called a friend who works at Säbener to have them sent again) and the articles usually contain the same stuff (in bad seasons propaganda-like articles telling about the fantastic situation at the club).

Also, sorry to say, but the club doesn't give two shits about their fans, so hoping for an official document from the club to get a visa will probably stay a dream. I reckon simply showing the bill should be enough as an official document though, shouldn't it?

Secondly, that's not your membership number. That's your customer reference number. The membership number will be under 200,000.


Ok, removed from my post, thanks for pointing out.

I'm also a Rangers supporter whose team main colour(s) is Blue (Red and White).

This is right its very silly thing to announce the membership number in public and we should have taken care of this thing and every one should make this clear and should made their minds before making any announcement in public.

I got my magazine sent on Saturday before the Hannover match. Using them to help improve my German too (which is pretty much non-existent). Though I'm not banking on it arriving before every game (if at all).

You are right, but I hope you do realise that you made your (home?) address public in your profile... :)

That's good news!
To be fair though, Scotland isn't the most exotic of places it could be sent to. Doubt you'll have problems in the long-run
Reckon it was customs officers who thought they'd like to give their children a nice poster or something when I lived in the Middle East ;)

So basically you are calling Middle East customs officers thieves?

The winking smiley demonstrates how serious that statement was.

I gave up on the magazine long ago.

Towards the end I was happy when it didn't arrive. Could have been a customs officer who stole it, but I sure didn't care :P Resembled more like an advertisement catalogue with intermittent news propagating how fantastic our management is.

Nowadays I'm a member with a number under 40,000 and the only reason I really keep it is because it's required nowadays for season ticket holders and simple ticketing orders.

And even that isn't helpful for everyone... you usually have to wait about 6 years before you start getting regular ticket allocations.

By that you mean you are not really sure if they are thieves or that they are un-seriously stealing magazines from couriers? Oh, I forgot, :wink: .
