Irish football fans travelling to France for Euro 2016 have been boosted with the news that a temporary accommodation specialist is offering prices from just €39 per night.

Martin O’Neill’s side begin their campaign against Sweden on June 13 in Paris,before taking on Belgium in Bordeaux five days later. Their Group E campaign will conclude against Italy at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Lille.

Thousands of fans are expected to travel to support the Boys in Green and supporters groups have voiced their concerns that accommodation prices have already soared since the draw was made for the tournament last month.

A temporary accommodation specialist for major sporting events, Campingninja, has set up a base in Bordeaux, offering supporters more competitive rates for travelling fans.

The company has said ‘Camp Bordeaux’ will be more like ‘Camp Ireland’ as a green invasion of the city is expected ahead of the encounter with Belgium and is offering budget, premium and luxury glamping ranges for the hordes of fans.

The most cost-effective option is the Budget Tent for two people. At a cost of €39 per person, a two-person tent with two single beds and sheets is provided by the company.

Other options include a premium tent for two (€52 per person), a premium tent for four people (€52 per person and the high-end luxury tent for two at a cost €91 per person.

Transfers are also available for Ireland’s  other group games in Lille and Paris. 

“Creating a great experience for Irish Fans is what it is all about”, said Rhian Evans, MD of Campingninja. “We have looked after fans during Olympic Games, Commonwealth Games, Formula 1 and can’t wait to host Irish Fans at Euro 2016.

“We spoke at length with fans after the draw and it became clear that fans were concerned with the long journeys they would have to make moving from match to match and the rising price of hotels”.
