  1. Do you need to purchase 1 Passolig card per person or can I obtain a card and purchase tickets also for my wife and child? We will be visiting from the UK btw.

  2. Dears, please I need some help to refister for passolig card. The passolig website is not available so I can’t start the registration proccess.
    I would apprecciate some help please.

  3. Good evening! I am an Italian tourist who signed up for Passolig during the past week, in view of my trip to Istanbul in two days’ time. I didn’t indicate any favourite club when I signed up for the card, so I don’t have access to the online sale of the Galatasaray game until Saturday afternoon! Is there any chance of finding some tickets on Saturday and Sunday as well, or do I risk finding the stadium sold out?

    1. Ciao, una domanda relativa all’acquisto della passolig. Hai dovuto necessariamente usare il passaporto o può andare bene anche la carta d’identità?

  4. Hello, payed and signed up to enter a game today, but probably won’t end up going to another game as heading back to England. Just wondering as I’m sure I read annually, will the card be auto renewed or is there a way I can cancel the card from doing that? Or does it cancel on its own. Because I don’t want the renewal to come round, and I don’t know about it. As I haven’t received an email about it either. Just want to know my options. Thanks!
