With the closure of the popular Kora bar, choices for a pre-match beer are quite spread out. Some fans meet at the Bulevar on Arsenalska, parallel to the waterfront, a classic fin-de-siècle building that housed the Yacht Club in the Habsburg days. Nearby, and slightly nearer the ground, another option is the Rojc, a former military barracks converted into a multifunctional arts and social centre.

Nearer to town, bars around the market, Tržnica on Narodni trg, are also a handy stop off – the most popular is the Beer Garden, Vrt piva.

At the ground itself, you’ll find the adjoining standard Samson and San Marco bars by the training pitch – look out for the yellow umbrellas outside.
