    I'm going to be in Torshavn at the same time that the Italian football (i.e. soccer) team will be playing the Faroese team in one of the UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying matches. The UEFA web site seems to sell tickets only to the actual Euro 2012 games (in Poland and Ukraine) and the Faroese Island Football Association website seems to be only in Faroese which is not, alas, a language I can decipher.

    Anybody have any idea how I can buy a ticket? (I am going for other reasons. It just seems like this will be the thing to do and big sporting events provide interesting cultural insights in my experience.)

    They game is played at Toftir Stadium. I am quite sure you do not need to buy a ticket in advance, but can take care of it it when you arrive in Faroe Islands. Going from Tórshavn (the capital) to Toftir takes approx. one hour by car.
