Pes2008 Leipzig Thread

It comes to mind that a few of us are in the process of booking Leipzig to play pro evo next month, i thought perhaps this would be a good place for maybe people who have been before to impart some experienced wisdom and for new people to maybe discuss hotels or other accomodation or jus the notion of going

So far the main site has proved more than tricky, they have several guides

http://www.gc-germany.com/index.php?page=1061&params

However the guides are in German and despite completing some education in German it seems to have left me.

It leads me to the conclusion really that outside booking maybe the best option.

Anyway just thought i would start a thread for people to help people. Maybe even for the people going when they go to put up their experiences/pictures/vids for the benefit of the forum.

A viable point to make is that there is a campsite that the convention centre runs and is next to the convention centre itself, a good option, im looking into it now

The choice is yours:
Five-day ticket

* for 130 euros
* incl. GC admission for all 4 days of the fair
* 4 overnights (Weds. – Sun.)
* incl. showers / toilets
* all events in the festival area as well as free access to the chillout area plus big swimming pool

One-day ticket

* for 43 euros
* incl. GC admission for one day
* one overnight incl. use of showers / toilets
* attendance at that evening’s event in the festival area as well as free access to the chillout area plus big pool during your campsite stay.

Whats that campsite mate? do you have to bring your own gear or is it set up for you? 130 euros for 4 days + tickets is class.

Adonis the campsite is located on site and is provided by the conference itself, you book an area, bring your own tent aswell. You have to sign up to the site to be able to book though which has proven a pain for me at the moment, they accept the email but validating the account seems a bit hard.
